This was a great boat trip from Jacó. The trip over to beach was beautiful. The beach was nice and so was the snorkeling. We saw some beautiful birds while there. The best part was the lunch it was steak and chicken kebabs and salad and roasted potatoes so good.

Nice beach
Michael_E, May 2024
It was a a good day to go for a boat ride, snorkel, and hang out on a private beach. The crew were very friendly and attentive. There were a lot of rules as they were for safety and from previous catamaran tours is had a couple draw backs from giving 5 stars. The “trampoline net” area to sit was old and wearing out so you were not allowed to sit on it. You were not allowed to stand along the railing. In previous catamaran tours these were not the case. The ride was very short and I felt it was too expensive. Other than that it was fun.
Response from Host, May 2024
Thank you for your comments, they help us improve day by day, the Captain will always give preventive instructions before starting the tour to avoid incidents, for us the safety or our clients will always be our priority. It should be noted that each company has different preventions measures. Please take the time to see everything that is included in the tour, maybe this way you will change your mind and see that is not too expensive. Was a pleasure having you on board and hope to see you again in the future. Pura Vida!

Rude staff, would not recommend
Paulette_S, Apr 2024
Staff were not friendly and we found them to be rude at times. The beach was good, the food was great. No fins for snorkeling and not enough adult sized snorkel masks. They didn't have any extra cups, so you had to give yours back if you wanted a new drink, or they wouldn't give you one. It's unfortunate that they are the only ones offering tours to this beach. Would not go again or recommend to others.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you for your comments, they help us improve day by day, we are very sorry that you consider that our work team is very rude, however for our crew the safety of our clients will always come first and if at any time any of the crew made a observation or suggested that you not do any activity, rest assured that it was for your safety. We hope to have you on board again in the future.
Great trip

The best day ever
Porsche_B, Jun 2023
This was an amazing time! The boat ride to the Catamaran was fun and exciting. I was nervous but our tour guide was great. Once on the Catamaran our tour guide gave us safety tips and served drinks. When we headed into Playa Fantasia we had a wonderful, delicious lunch. The whole experience was just awesome. I got to meet some pretty cool people. And when I told them it was my wife’s birthday everyone sang and they passed out shots! Worth every penny. I would do it again and again if I could 💕

Beach day
Christina_F, Jun 2023
The trip was very nice and relaxing. The tour guides were great. The ocean was a little rough this day which didn't allow for much water activity but not the fault of the tour. They did their best to make sure we had fun.

Your own private island

Awesome trip. Crew was great. It was high tide and nice wave. Jesus handled the ponga incredibly. I have a bad leg and was able to navigate between boats. Crew there to help and support as needed. Great time. Must do.

Best alternative to renting a private boat!
Angela_J, Apr 2023
Great experience, not crowded and felt very personalized for a smaller group of 20ish. Food was delicious, time spent on the beach was exactly enough and didn't require us to spend a whole day there.
