Spend a day in a sheltered cove, explore a new beach and try a new water sport
Once you’re comfortably aboard the catamaran, the captain and crew will raise the sail, wind permitting, and you’re off, sailing north along the gorgeous Costa Rican coastline. You’ll see the town of Tamarindo from a new vantage point as your boat glides silently along the water, past beaches and rocky points. Keep watch for marine life like sea turtles, dolphins and whales. You might see humpbacks along the way, or maybe even sting rays jumping in the air.
A 45 minute journey brings you to a secluded cove where you’ll notice a deserted beach – perfect for relaxing under the sun. You can choose to head there with the help of a snorkel, kayak or paddleboard, and nestle in the warm white sand. Or, opt to stay on board and bob along with the gentle rocking of the waves. You can also grab your snorkel and explore a rocky area that is inhabited by tropical fish decorated in a plethora of bright colors. You’ll have plenty of time to do any and all activities that tickle your fancy.
Then, hop back on to take advantage of a delicious snack or light lunch, which usually includes fruits, salads, tortilla chips and dips and other goodies. Plus, from start to finish, you have access to an open bar stocked with cold beers, or a selection of tasty cocktails such as pina coladas, margaritas and mai thais.
On the trip back towards Tamarindo, position yourself on the side of the catamaran facing the horizon to get the best vantage point for watching the sunset. The sun sets the sky and sea aglow with bright colors, so make sure you’ve brought your camera along to capture the moment. It’s the perfect time to share with close friends, or to kiss the one you love. On the trip, you’ll be treated to spectacular views and probably meet some new friends.
With evening getting underway, the boat docks back in Tamarindo bay, and you’re brought back to shore feeling full of the amazing experience you just had aboard the biggest catamaran in the area on this five-hour excursion.
