Boat Trips in Costa Rica

Explore the exquisitely wild Costa Rican coast… from the water.

An abundance of marine life to behold! Just imagine dolphins weaving in your boat's wake, whales frolicking only a short distance away, sea turtles paddling off your bow, manta rays leaping in the air! It's not a dream—such biodiversity abounds in Central America's vibrant ocean waters. Out on the wild blue, you are sure to encounter some of the beautiful sea life that makes Costa Rica such a popular vacation destination.

Make a day of it! Many trips anchor in a bay for lunch so you can go snorkeling over coral reefs and rock formations, swim, or simply enjoy the secluded beaches.

Savor a setting sun at sea. If you are staying in the North Pacific region of Costa Rica, be sure to enjoy a beautiful Guanacaste sunset cruise. Sit-back and watch the colorful sunset, while sipping a cold beer, rum punch or soft drinks and enjoying the light snacks.

Watch a whale. Dash among dolphins. Spy a sea turtle. There is a tremendous amount of marine life to be seen around the Osa Peninsula. Outfits in Bahia Drake (Drake Bay) offer whale watching trips. And visitors to the bio-rich waters of Golfo Dulce can spend a day surrounded by blue waves with rainforest towering in almost every direction.
