Guides were great, super fun and attentive. Our kids loved the slide off the back of the boat and doing back flips off the side. We sailed back to town at sunset with amazing views. Great day trip for our toddler all the way up to our 81 year old grandma!

The chicken served tasted amazing, the drinks are what you can expect from an all inclusive event, the snorkeling sights themselves were just ok, we did see some dolphins, the staff was very personable, and there were some fantastic photo opportunities.
Best service/drinks in Costa Rica

Best service and best drinks in Costa Rica. Only saw a single fish snorkeling tho so go for the boat ride. The Guaro Sours had fresh muddled lime!

So much fun for the whole family. The crew was amazing! Snorkeling was fun, didn’t see as much as I would have liked, but still fun!
Sunset catamaran ride
Juanita_P, Mar 2024
Unfortunately the water condition was not good for snorkeling but we had a wonderful time! Everyone of the crew members were attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable! I was there with my family and we all enjoyed the afternoon. The sunset was magnificent!
We absolutely loved it.
Shauna_N, Mar 2024
This cruise was so much fun. We loved, swimming, cruising in the open ocean, we saw dolphins, and a stunning sunset. The lunch was good, and the bar was well stocked. CREW was friendly! Can’t recommend this cruise enough.
Relaxing and enjoyable
Sheilagh_C, Mar 2024
Fabulous day out on the ocean. From the start to finish. Crew was knowledgeable and attentive. The weather was spectacular. Didn’t see any fish while snorkelling but the water was refreshing.
Must do event!
Brent_M, Mar 2024
It’s was a great trip! The hospitality and drinks were worth the price. Let alone the snorkeling experience and private beach.
Worth, lively, fun, safe
Kyle_M, Mar 2024
Super fun time with our group of college friends. The staff was so nice and accommodating and the drinks were amazing and certainly bottomless! Food was also delicious and again more than enough. 100% recommend! You will definitely get your moneys worth.

Good day. Shop was great service and food was amazing but we didn’t snorkel at a reef. Just a cove where there was no fish so very disappointing as we brought our own full face snorkel masks all the way from Canada for this
Wonderful Day at Sea
Nick_D, Feb 2024
Highly recommend this experience! The snorkeling and views were incredible! We even saw a whale breaching! The lunch they served was delicious and there was an open bar. The sunset was also spectacular!
So very disappointed... please read and view the photos.

As a gift to my wife for Valentines, I booked a Sunset Cruise out of Tamarindo. I received a conformation and details. On day of tour we showed up as directed by the Viator app. As it turned out, the tour was an hour away from us. Tour operator refused refund and now Viator refuses to make it right. So very disappointed!! Please be very cautious when booking their service.
Amazing trip!

Adam_O, Feb 2024
The snorkeling was very cool, I would recommend this to anyone to book a afternoon trip, 5 star meal and drinks
Relax and enjoy the ride.
Debbie_L, Feb 2024
Nice boat, nice staff, good dinner and since we were travelling with kids, the open bar also had good mocktails for the kids. We had two first time snorkelers/first time on the ocean kids with us. Not a lot of colorful fish like you would see in other places but their is nothing the staff can do about that. Anyway, relaxing and scenic. A nice way to spend the afternoon, evening.
Great water experience!
Andriy_A, Jan 2024
Great crew, excellent team work and service. Beautiful weather. Snorkeling spot - so so. Sunset is very memorable!
Great way to spend an afternoon!
Laura_W, Jan 2024
The boat was nice and the guys working were amazing. Constantly bringing people drinks and helping as needed. The lunch was very good. Plenty of time to swim/snorkel. Great day!
Crowded. Bad food.
Kimberly_C, Jan 2024
This was a crowded boat, with water down drinks, a bad unlimited lunch, with really rice and beans and chips. The ride back in the smaller boat to the shore was a bit harrowing that day. There are other cruises which depart from north of Tamarindo, such as around Playa Conchal which actually cost a little bit less and are much much better.
Relaxing Cruse great lunch
Traveler_O, Dec 2023
The cruse was a relaxing experience and the lunch was very good. Some people did not see any fish becasue the crew just assumes you know where to find the. They need to give more instruction.
Lindsey_W, Dec 2023
Incredible day!! The guys who ran the tour were so attentive and organized. Drinks were flowing and music was blasting! We all had an amazing time.
We were group of 9...
Anitha_F, Dec 2023
We were group of 9 traveling from the US( 1 family of 4 and another of 5). They messed up our friends booking even though they can confirmation and proof of tickets. They reservation service hung up on my friends multiple times and they would not let them go on the boat with us. Even though there was space. They C ended up staying back. Never going back to them
