Super fun - but not for everyone
Susan_C
, Jul 2021
This cruise is super fun, but not for everyone. The crew and staff are phenomenal, and go out of their way to ensure the guests are having a good time. The boat is clean and the views of the coast are amazing. The seas were rough the day we went, so there was no snorkeling; however, we were able to anchor offshore and go swimming. Big thing to mention here is that the booze is all free and free flowing! So, for young 20-30 somethings is a big party boat. Since we were accompanied by our adult children, it didn't phase us in the least; however, for impressionable teens, it may not be the perfect match. A little awkward for those who don't drink or who do not have tolerance for people just wanting to drink, party, and get super drunk and be carefree.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time on the boat. We appreciate your feedback. Our goal for the day is to take guests out to experience a fun afternoon, cruising the beautiful coastline and to relax and enjoy the ocean for the afternoon. We do serve food and alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks onboard to our guests and we hope that our adult guests indulge in a responsible manner. If you are looking for a more private customized boat experience we can also offer this option as well to guests - just inquire about our private boat experiences :) . Thank you again for joining us.

Beautiful boat, friendly...
Randy_B

Beautiful boat, friendly crew, great drinks and food. The only weak point was the snorkeling itself, which provided little to look at. However, the sail home was glorious and we were visited by a large school of dolphins, which was quite special.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
Thank you, yes I agree, the boat is beautiful, 75 feet under sail is a breathtaking sight. We think the crew is the best and the abundance of food and drinks makes this trip a memorable event. Of course the dolphins and the Pacific Ocean sunsets just leave us in awe every day. On the snorkeling. We have a tremendous amount of marine life but not much coral on the volcanic rocks. Sometimes we have to go into more protected water if there are smaller children snorkeling. If you would like to see more marine life plan to go scuba diving and you will be amazed. Thank you for taking your time to write, we really appreciate it. Stay safe & "PURA VIDA"

Misleading Advertising

I received a confirmation from a “Bill” to inform me that the cruise was not a “booze cruise.” That is far from the truth. While the drinks were plentiful, the snorkeling, beach time and general instructions were not. The description states a fishing line would be dropped. None was offered or dropped. The description boasts seeing dolphins, flying fish and turtles. The tour team made no attempts to bring that to reality. We went to one beach and was told “sorry the water isn’t clear enough for snorkeling but go ahead and try.” Equipment was just handed to us with no instructions. We got about 45 minutes to swim/snorkel/sunbathe and we were ushered back on the boat. Lunch was great. The drinks were delicious. But this cruise was not worthy of the $230 my partner and I spent to basically cruise on the water and drink.

Thank you for providing your feedback and letting us know about this issue. We apologize that our service did not satisfy your expectations. We set a high standard for ourselves and are truly sorry to hear that standard was not met on the tour. Showing guests an amazing afternoon cruising the coastline is high priority. We have discussed your comments with the team to ensure more detailed instructions and care is given to each of our guests and to ensure that our description outlines the days activities correctly. We hope we have the opportunity to serve you again and thank you again for taking the time to give us your feedback. We value all of our guests opinions and use them to continually better our services.

It was a blast from start to finish. The team on board were great! They served a lovely dinner after swimming and even went out of their way to find out whales and dolphins

Wonderful, we are so happy that you enjoyed our sunset sailing tour on the beautiful Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. We are so fortunate to have that gorgeous sunset year around and with the humpback whales and dolphins it just adds to the pleasure. Thank you for taking your time for the great review and the compliments on our crew. They do a fabulous job and will be pleased when they see your report. Thank you, hurry back and "PURA VIDA"

Very fun inclusive activity for friends, family and couples
Vacationer232465
, Dec 2019
Very fun in the sun, inclusive of sailing , snorkeling, drink and beautiful sunset. Definitely recommend for couples, friends and families ( not ideal for small children ) as much indulgence in drink and boat can be limited in space. Food is pretty okay especially after a day snorkeling when you’re hungry. (BBQ chicken, beans, rice, fruits, variety of chips, and maybe cookies?) all types of drinks were unlimited. The sunset was gorgeous and we (my adult kids and their significant others) all really enjoyed the day. Would definitely recommend and do this activity again.

Wonderful review and based on our own experience and other reviews, very accurate. Thank you for writing. The sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are gorgeous year around and our sunset cruise on a 75 foot catamaran is one of the few that really travel under sail. We are happy you enjoyed the unlimited drinks and food, not to fail to mention the excellent service of the crew. Thank you again for taking your time to write the great review. We hope you will come back soon and enjoy some more of our tours. PURA VIDA and warm regards.

Sunset Sailing, Snorkeling Tour is very popular and we really appreciate your recommendation and review. We agree that the sunset is gorgeous and we see it year around. The boat is a 75 foot catamaran, we actually sail and the food is homemade and delicious. My children and grandchildren love this tour as well. Thank you again, hurry back and PURA VIDA

Nice boat & pleasant outing

Snorkeling was good. Food was tasty, but not in great abundance. Boat and crew were very nice. We had a small group of 13, so was comfortable. If the tour was full at 75 people, it would have been pure hell. I don't know how, but try to get on a tour not over crowded, perhaps stick to weekdays.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Thank you for the review. I am happy to report that the amounts of food and drinks are unlimited. I apologize that there seemed to be a shortage of food on your trip. Please check some of the more recent reviews that all say there was "unlimited food and drinks" You were on our 75 foot sailing catamaran shared trip and it is quite spacious. However with a group of 13 like yours we do have a smaller private sailing/sunset cruise available. Thanks for writing and please hurry back and enjoy some of our other exciting adventure tours. Warm regards "PURA VIDA"

Sailing on a 75 foot catamaran with a gorgeous Pacific Ocean sunset and outstanding snorkeling, fabulous. . Thank you for your review. We were not connected in Costa Rica during this time so never saw the review until now. We have operated scuba diving, adventure tours such as sunset cruise, ATV tours, Wildlife observation tours, honeymoons and vacation packages throughout Costa Rica since 1970. If there is ever anything we can assist you with concerning Costa Rica, it will be our pleasure Thank you again and please hurry back to visit. PURA VIDA
