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.

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! The first day we went on a snorkeling... More

We chartered a boat with Almaco during our recent stay in Playa Ocotal. Our tour guide, Carlos with Green Life Tours, recommended them. And boy were we glad! We booked the boat for the entire day - 9am until sunset. We told our guide, Owen, and captain, Wilbur, we wanted to do basically everything - and they came prepared! Fishing,... More

Had a fabulous morning guided by Guayo and Michi. We took our two children ages 12 and 15 with us and they were enthralled. They let us choose the pace and there were so many activities to choose from. We chose dolphin watching, a journey through the mangroves, SUP, snorkeling and sub wing. Guayo joined in the diving and was... More

We go out with Almaco every time we are in Costa Rica and it is always the highlight of our trip! Snorkeling, sub wing, tubing, wake boarding, water skiing, incredible fishing, truly delicious lunch, snacks, drinks, and more. The guides are very knowledgeable and experienced and can find anything on the snorkeling trips - turtles, sharks, tons of fish, octopus,... More
