Manuel Antonio - Catamaran
Island Adventure

Your "Catamaran Island Adventure" begins when we pick you up at your hotel or private house in one of our comfortable, air-conditioned vans for the trip to the Quepos pier. There, a representative will accompany you down the ramp and on to the floating platform to board the catamaran. Leaving the Quepos harbor, you will head towards the horizon, cruising through the aquamarine waters and scenic coastline of Manuel Antonio Park.


The experienced captain will pilot the boat while the friendly, bilingual guides offer you a wide array of beverages, including fresh fruit drinks, bottled water, sodas, beer and tropical cocktails. Soon you will be in open water and on the lookout for spotted dolphins, migrating humpback whales, sea turtles and manta rays. You will be captivated by the sight of dolphins frolicking in the boat’s wake, or the inimitable sound of a whale’s song. As we make our way down the coastline of the park, the mysterious islands, jagged cliffs and unique rock formations will look almost close enough to reach out and touch. These 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 onboard guide will be ready to answer any questions you might have, and will point out sights of interest while giving a brief history of the area. After touring the coastline, we will anchor in a protected cove within the pristine Biesanz Bay for snorkeling.  Masks, snorkels and fins will be provided for you to enjoy the underwater playground with over 50 species of colorful tropical fish.


After you have finished snorkeling, come back on board and enjoy the delicious lunch we have prepared for you: Grilled fish brochettes with onion and green pepper, pasta salad with vegetables, fresh tropical fruits, and beverages. As you relax over lunch on our boat in the tranquil bay, surrounded by the lush verdant landscape, having enjoyed all our tour has to offer, you might well feel that you now know the meaning of the word paradise.

The last leg of the tour is the trip back to the Quepos pier. An unforgettable added bonus for anyone who comes on one of our summer season afternoon tours is the chance to witness one of our dramatic tropical sunsets en route to the harbor. Once back at the pier, the drivers await you for the trip back to your hotel. The total time of the catamaran tour is 3 ½ hours, but the memories will last a lifetime.


There are two distinctly different catamarans for your island adventure. The Tom Cat is a roomy and comfortable 60-footer with a capacity of up to 50 passengers. The boat is partially roofed, providing a large shaded area with plenty of banquette seating. The bow of the boat features an open air trampoline deck and additional banquette seating. The Tom Cat is an exceptionally stable and smooth-riding boat, perfect for the customer that wants a bit of comfort during the tour. The Spanish Dancer is a 38-foot MacGregor sport catamaran with a capacity of 16 passengers. This boat is a fast and maneuverable craft and recommended for those who like being closer to the elements and truly enjoy the feel of the sun on their face and the sea air in their lungs.

Both boats have all the required licenses, inspection certificates, and insurance. The captains and guides are seaworthy professionals and tourism industry veterans who always put the safety, well-being, and enjoyment of the customer first.
