Absolutely wonderful experience :)
Jordan_A
, Jun 2022
We are so Impressed! The entire experience was flawless. We were able to be picked up at our hotel, brought to a boat that brings you to the catamaran. Onboard, we were taken care of by 4 really friendly, helpful, and professional men the entire time. They encouraged fun and safety and had the entire experience smooth sailing and amazing. We stopped a couple times to view sea turtles and dolphins. We even had dolphins swimming next to and in front of us for a long stretch of time! We went to a cove after cruising ocean waters for about an hour. At the cove, we were given snorkeling equipment and floatation devices. There was one employee watching from the boat, another on a stand up paddle board, and two others circling making sure everyone was accounted for at all times. Lunch was fantastic. They call it a light lunch but we were extremely satisfied. We had the best bbq chicken, rice, beans, fruit, chips, salsa, and cookies. We say this was our favorite meal in Costa Rica. On the way back it did rain; but we were fully covered by the inside of the boat that had plenty of room. All in all, wonderful experience. We were so impressed by the staff and how amazing of a job they did! 10/10! I wish we could do this again every day :)

DO NOT USE!!! Inefficient Customer Service and Rain Policy
Aszerdee_P
, Jun 2022
DO NOT USE THEIR SERVICES! They have inefficient procedures in place for rain. My party of four was dropped off at a bar(filled with individuals in light of the tremendous rainfall at the time) along with several other parties and instructed by the driver that a representative would greet us upon entry into the bar. An attendant greeted us shortly after entry to collect funds for our transportation. We were then instructed to await further instructions, as they were waiting out the rain. We awaited at the bar for over 45 minutes without further instructions. We then witnessed the other parties (outside of my party of four) that arrived with us leave on their own (four in a taxi and four by foot). No one ever came over and instructed us of next steps. Upon calling the contact number provided in the booking, we were instructed that the boat was gone due to the attendant stating that the entire group dropped off at the bar decided not to board the boat. I informed the contact that no one ever approached ANY of my party of four for a transfer to the boat or otherwise. I was instructed that there was nothing more they could do. They refunded us the funds paid for the transportation to the boat and instructed me to initiate a refund through the booking app used. I initiated the refund as requested, and was then informed by Viator that the relevant service provider states that I refused the service. Although I had several conversations (via phone and messaging within the app) that no further interaction was initiated with my party after collection of the funds. If they were not going to be efficient to ensure that they initiated contact with ALL relevant individuals, we should have never been dropped off to a crowded bar. They are now attempting to punish me thru not refunding me funds due to the inefficiencies of the service provider

Very fun but.......
Jeff_P
, May 2022
This excursion set up by Viator went flawlessly. They arranged pick up at out hotel and once we arrived at our loading point we were tendered to the catamaran. The staff on the catamaran were friendly and kept the bar service running continually and the drinks were good. I happen to be a beer drinker and I wished that there was more of a variety on beer aboard but...... The two negatives were that the snorkeling was poor. No coral reef = no fish! And....there was no mention that if you went to the island beach that there were monkeys and coatimundi to be seen there. This should have been mentioned by the staff! The other slight negative was that the music on the catamaran was rap music! Yuk! And played loudly! I would think some more appropriate "Island Type" music would more fitting to the occasion. But the overall experience was fun and good. Watch for the fire ants just off the beach when you return to your ride home!

Perfect birthday celebration on vacay

Had great time. Wasn't crowded. Having about 20 people made the experience so much more enjoyable. Staff friendly. Food was really good. Barbecue chicken, rice beans and assortment of chips. Drinks flowed and were delicious. Nice snorkel spot at private beach. Not sure why but didn't put paddle boards in water. Sailing home was a nice touch as opposed to engine and the pictures of the sunset I took are unreal. Also loved we got to see dolphins!!

So fun!!! We had the chance to see 2 dolphins!! The staff was AMAZING! They would come pick up our cocktails when we were finished and would offer to bring us another one. They all seemed like they enjoy their job. Lunch was very good as well! The fresh fruit was my favourite!! I recommend to bring some ginger capsules like Gravol for example, if you get seasick. They help a lot and you’ll fully enjoy the activity!

Spend your afternoon doing this!
Erica_L

This tour was beautiful and a wonderful way to spend the afternoon/evening! My friends and I really enjoyed cruising on the boat seeing the spectacular views, snorkeling, and exploring the small island. The crew served a great meal, drinks and we met some wonderful people on the boat as well. I wish we could have seen some whales or other animals, but we didn't get the chance to. Overall, would highly recommend!

Horrible, scam
Terecieann_B
, Dec 2021
I did not go on the tour because there was an disagreement about the transportation cost. My friend and I was told it an additional $20 for the transportation cost. However when we get to the boat they wanted to collect $63 per person. Even though we had several email back and forth confirming the price of the tour with transportation.

The booking agent reserved a excursion in a different town than what I asked. In a different country. I tried to alert the customer service but no one has give me any indication of a refund, credit or voucher for the error.

My girlfriend and my mom really had a blast with this cruise. The crew was really friendly and attentive. They provided a typical Costa Rican lunch which was very delicious. Having the opportunity to snorkel was really great. We had a really great time.

Awesome experience! The crew was amazing! Food was very good and the strawberry daiquiris were on point. We loved snorkling and the sunset with the dolphins jumping around our boat was the icing on the cake.

Excellent crew that was super friendly and accommodating. They went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. The snorkeling was okay, some colorful fishies but don’t expect much. Sunset was gorgeous and the lunch was very tasty
