While touring the coastline, the captain will hoist the sails(wind permitting) and you will enjoy the feel of the catamaran cutting quietly through the blue waters of the Pacific. Our guides will be ready to answer any questions you have 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 a snorkeling adventure in the warm Pacific waters.

We provide the masks, snorkels and fins, everything you need to dive in and observe the underwater playground for numerous species of colorful tropical fish.

Afterwards come back on board and enjoy the delicious lunch we will have prepared for you.

You will discover the true meaning of the word paradise as you relax & enjoy the Pura Vida in this beautiful bay surrounded by the lush green landscape and the soothing sounds of the ocean.

The last leg of the tour is the trip back to the Quepos dock.

Great Tour for the whole family

I can confirm the planet dolphin tour is great for families with kids. I have taken my kids multiple times and they love it. I love it too! Snorkeling and jumping off the top deck are my favorite parts.

Planet Dolphin

Great trip. Good for the whole family. There were kids onboard as well as a full bar the the adults. Alex, the tour guide was cool and knew all about the marine life. The whole crew were cool. We had a whale siting and saw a bunch of dolphins. I went down the slide and jumped off the top of the boat. I snorkeled for the first time in many years. Then they served up some great shishkabab with side orders that was really good. I totally recommend taking this trip. Pura vida!

Love this tour

I've celebrated a few friends birthday on this tour. The guides are fun and friendly. The boat is just the right size. Big enough where you can find different places to hang out (either shaded or with sun) and when you find dolphins or whales during whale season you're low enough where you can get some great photos of the marine life around you. I love this tour and recommend it all the time. Oh and they serve a great lunch too. Really yummy.
