Full description
Sail along Costa Rica’s Gold Coast on a 4.5-hour sunset cruise, passing Guanacaste’s exotic bays, white sand beaches and tropical jungles. Gaze off the bow with a cold tropical drink in your hand as you scan the seas for dolphins, sea turtles, flying fish or even a breaching whale. Stop in a tranquil bay, drop anchor and enjoy a swim. Snorkel in the bay or take a walk down a deserted white sand beach. While you’re enjoying the sun, sand and sea, the crew will prepare a lunch of chicken or pasta salad, fruit, chips, pico de gallo, guacamole and homemade chocolate chip cookies. As the sun sets, you’ll see the ever-changing colors of the sky, while enjoying your favorite drink from the boat’s open bar. Capture the moment to show your family and friends the wonders of a Costa Rican sunset.

The tour departs from the beach in front of the volleyball courts by the big tree on the board walk in Playas del Coco. This is located 10 meters north of where the road through Coco dead ends into the beach. I have attached map to assist you in locating this location. We ask that you arrive here at 1:15 pm the day of the tour.

Great crew, beautiful scenery. Not a good time for snorkeling as it was cloudy because of the afternoon choppy waters which is typical. We took this trip for the subset cruise and weren't disappointed. Felt great to swim anyway.
