Sunset Snorkel and Sailing Trip From Guanacaste

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Pick up is 1:00pm on the beach in front of Dreams Mareas. Sail out of the bay to the south to one of several snorkeling destinations. While guests are in the water food is prepped by crew and will be served on your sail back to the hotel. You'll be able to enjoy your meal as you watch the sunset.
  • Catch the sunset along the shores of the Guanacaste Gold Coast
  • Set sail from Tamarindo for an afternoon away from the crowds
  • A home-cooked meal provides a taste of fresh Costa Rican cuisine
  • Snorkel at a prime spot in the Golfo Santa Elena
  • Ideal for couples, families, or small groups of eight people or fewer
  • Option to book as a private tour for just your party (inquire upon booking)
What to Expect
Meet on the beach by Dreams Mareas to begin your tour. A dingy takes you from the shore to a 42-foot catamaran where your cruise begins. Boar the ship and set sail for a snorkeling destination in Golfo Santa Elena, where it’s possible to spot animals like stingrays, octopi, and tropical fish. Your captain points out wildlife and places of interest on the way out. After a few hours of snorkeling, reboard the ship for a traditional Costa Rican meal freshly prepared on board. Dine as you watch the sunset, keeping your eyes out for sightings of dolphins, whales, and turtles that often play in the wake. Tour concludes at original departure point.
