Almaco's private customized boat tours are a great way to experience Costa Rica from the ocean’s point of view. For almost a decade we have been designing dynamic tours for small groups and families who want a little bit of everything while out on the water. We offer snorkeling, sport fishing, scuba diving (and instruction), surf trips (and instruction), standup paddling, sunset tours, and unforgettable full day beach barbeque tours with delicious gourmet food.

Our family of four spent a half day on the Almaco with Leo and Michi. We mainly wanted to snorkel and although it was a windy afternoon Michi and Leo found a cove for us, and Leo identified fish for us and advised about rocky areas to avoid, making sure we were all safe. We visited a mangrove and saw... More

We found this company through Diego, who is a photographer we booked through the Four Seasons. Owen and his crew were amazing! We brought Diego along as well for his photography skills as well as lessons (Diego- also amazing opportunity to learn some photography!) The crew on our boat went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable... More

While I love reading other folks reviews, I rarely post one myself. But after our day on the Almaco boat Nai'a, I've made an exception. Staying at the Four Seasons (another review-worthy post) for President's week, we booked a day out with Almaco on a two tank dive with my two teenage daughters and my wife who does not dive....

My wife and I spent 1/2 day (9 am to 2 pm) with a great crew and a clean, nice boat. We saw dolphins jumping, turtles swimming, caught a Tuna, snorkeled and then went and had lunch at a beach side restaurant. Captain Mitch and Guide Owen were friendly and open to do whatever we wanted to do. The refreshments... More

We did a private full-day boat tour with Almaco. 4 adults and 4 kids (aged 9-12). It was a fantastic day - our favorite activity of the entire vacation. The boat guides were excellent, professional, knowledgeable, personable, and 100% focused on ensuring we had a great experience. Definitely worth the money. We were on the "Alcyone" boat (their mid size... More

Absolutely amazing day on Nai'a. We were with Chicago friends visiting Coco as well as local friends and our kids for a full day tour. Our whole group has been raving about what a great day it was - our visitors say it was the best day of their 2 week Costa Rica trip. The crew was awesome. Rolbin, Wilbert,... More

We charted the boat for 4 hours and a captain and a guide. There were 6 of us. We snorkeled, paddle boarded, and sub-winged. We had never done that before and absolutely loved it. If you have never tried it. Its a must do! They had water, drinks and munchies on the boat for us for half way through the... More

We enjoyed two days of boating with friends that were definitely the highlight of our Costa Rican holiday with friends. We went out on two different boats - both of which were in excellent condition - clean, comfortable and fully equipped. There was so much to do and we had a blast!
