Manuel Antonio Catamaran Island Adventure
Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Enjoy a sunset sail around the Manuel Antonio Marine Preserve and offshore islands. Look out for dolphins, whales, sea turtles and tropical birds. Stop for a leisurely swim at one of the white sand beaches, snorkel and savour a tasty lunch.
Sail aboard a modern catamaran looking out for dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and birds as you explore the Manuel Antonio Marine Preserve and the beautiful offshore islands. As you make your 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 them. They 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. The knowledgeable, onboard guide will be ready to answer any questions you have, and will point out sights of interest while giving a brief history of the area. After touring the coastline, you will anchor in a protected cove within the pristine Biesanz Bay for an unforgettable snorkelling adventure in the warm pacific waters. You will be provided with masks, snorkels and fins; everything you need to dive in and observe the underwater playground for over 50 species of colourful tropical fish.
Afterwards, enjoy the delicious lunch - a feast of fresh fruits, grilled fish brochettes, pasta salad and drinks, as well as attentive service from the crew. The last leg of the tour is the trip back to the Quepos dock. Enjoy dramatic scenery as the sun sets.
