We will start the day with taking you on a 45 minutes boat ride along the coast with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean on the right and the beautiful landscape of the Nicoya Peninsula. During the boat ride you could be able to see dolphins, manta rays, turtles or if you are lucky you can even enjoy watching humpback & pilot whales!
Once we get to the paradisiacal Tortuga Island, we will anchor our boat next to the best points for snorkeling. The volcanic rock reef is surrounded by crystalline waters and home of angelfish, porcupine fish, morays, needlefish, spotted eagle rays and many more tropical beauties.
Our fleet of boats are powered by twin 200hp & 250hp top line electronic Suzuki gasoline engines. All safety equipment (life vests, compass, GPS, radio, fire extinguishers) is on board and all the permits and proper insurance are up to date.
- Duration: approximately 7 hours from pick up to drop off.
