After exploring the surface of the ocean, we will anchor near the shores of Isla Chora, onto the delightful white-sand beach full of hermit crabs and iguanas. You can cool off in the clear blue sea while continuing your search for underwater life. Beneath the surface teems a lively, colorful world.

Dozens of Dolphins
May 2021
This was one of the best activities in Costa Rica. Our guides patiently searched for the dolphins. While searching we saw several Bonita aka flying fish. When they finally spotted some dolphin, it was a bigger thrill than we had imagined. Dozens of spotted dolphins swam along the side, under the center and all around our boat. This was followed by snorkeling near the large island in Samara harbor. A great morning in the beautiful Pacific Ocean

Lovely experience - Highly recommended
Mar 2021
Amazing experience. Booking was a breeze and everyone was very responsive.
Alex and captain ?? went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience on the catamaran . We were only 6 people on the boat and everything was super clean and felt extremely safe. We saw - and followed - dolphins, turtles and a sailfish. Snorkeling was fun as well. Highly recommended.

Excellent ocean tour
Feb 2021 • Family
Had an excellent experience on the Ocean Safari - Dolphins + Snorkeling! We actually had a trifecta of getting to see dolphins, snorkel - and saw humpback whales! Our captain Jorge and first mate were informative and took great care of our group, the catamaran boat Nimbu was extremely comfortable (even has a restroom) and made it easy to get in and out of the water for the snorkel - highly recommend this trip!

Many great sea animals!
Feb 2020
I really enjoyed seeing so many different animals such as turtles, sting rays, whale with its baby and dolphins of course. I do wish we would have stayed longer with the dolphins and had a better chance to see them as the rotation on the front of the boat wasn't the best for us when we got up there we had to sit on the side and couldn't see much. I would definitely recommend fixing this and would have loved to see the dolphins from that angle.

Nice adventure on the sea
Feb 2020
We booked Ocean seafari 2 in 1. It includes snorkeling and boat tour. This is a very good experience. Unfortunately we couldn't find dolphins but we did find tortles and whales! It was not expected and yet we saw whales. Crew team is very nice.

Great day!
This was a great laid back adventure for us and our young kids. Ricardo the guide was passionate and went out of his way to make things interesting for us. He even stopped the driver on the ride back to show us local fruit trees and picked some fresh star fruit for us. We saw many dolphins and got to swim and snorkel at the end. I will say, though, that the boat was smaller than I expected and I got pretty sea sick (which I'm prone to, not their fault). If you're prone to getting sick too, definitely take something before you get on the boat!

Great people to deal with
We did the dolphin and whale watching tour. They picked us up and dropped us off in front of where we were staying. The guides were knowledgeable and pleasant. We'll be using them again the next time we go to Samara. We also used their shuttle to and from Liberia. Our driver Daniel was a pleasure to deal with pointing out things of interest along the way. I would highly recommend giving them a chance.

We loved our experience with this company! Alan was the best guide, he share some amazing fruits with us and really knew what he was saying. You can clearly see that he loves what he’s doing and love his roots. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about it, they even come to get you wherever you are AND they are on time! I highly recommend Sámara Adventure Company.
