Ocean Seafari Tour in Samara
US$60.00
Overview
Hop aboard a boat to explore the Samara Beach area on this guided tour. Home to bottlenose and spotted dolphins, the clear waters are also a migratory route for humpback whales that are heading south during certain times of the year. After the dolphin sighting, explore the underwater sea life on your own with snorkeling gear.
What to Expect
The pick-up starts at the hotels at 8am within the Samara-Carrillo Beach area. You will ride with one of our drivers and the guide assigned to the south end of Samara Beach where the Aventurero Boat is anchored. The guide will explain all the safety procedures and will give the corresponding instructions of the tour.

The experienced boat captain will take you offshore for an extraordinary sighting of dolphins. You might be able to see whales during the season! (August-November)

During the tour, the guide will provide information and you can ask for drinks such as water, juices and beer while you look for the dolphins.
Afterwards, you will snorkel and have the chance to see Costa Rica's rich underwater diversity.
Snack some fruits before heading to shore and be dropped off back at your hotel around 12md.
