Join us as we cruise into the open sea, looking for spotted dolphins, migrating humpback whales, sea turtles and manta rays. You will be captivated by the sight of dolphins frolicking in the boat's wake, or the inimitable sound of a whale's song( WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE ANY WILD LIFE SIGHTINGS, WIND FOR SAILING OR CLARITY FOR SWIMMING OR SNORKELING) For the safety and security of our clients we reserve the rights to make decisions in case of bad weather)
As we make our way down the coastline of Manuel Antonio National Park, the mysterious islands, jagged cliffs and unique rock formations will look almost close enough to reach out and touch. These are the nesting grounds and home for numerous species of marine birds, including pelicans, boobies and ibises. While touring the coastline, the captain will hoist the sails, wind permitting, and you will delight in the feel of the catamaran cutting quietly through the blue waters of the Pacific. Our onboard guide will be ready to answer any questions you might have, and will point out sights of interest while giving a brief history of the area. After touring the coastline, we will anchor in a protected cove within the pristine Biesanz Bay for swimming . We provide masks, snorkels and fins with no extra charge.
After you have finished playing in the water, come back on board and enjoy the delicious lunch we have prepared for you: Grilled fish brochettes with onion and green pepper, pasta salad with vegetables, fresh tropical fruits, and natural fruit drinks. As you relax over lunch on our boat in the tranquil bay, surrounded by the lush verdant landscape, having enjoyed all our tour has to offer, you might well feel that you now know the meaning of the word paradise.
The last leg of the tour is the trip back to the Quepos marina. An unforgettable added bonus for anyone who comes on one of our summer season afternoon tours is the chance to witness one of our dramatic tropical sunsets en route to the harbor. The total time of our catamaran tour is 3 1/2 hours, but the memories will last a lifetime.
