Overview

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, wakeboard, waterski, inner tube, subwings, and hydrophones, on our morning and sunset tours, and unforgettable full day beach barbeque tours with delicious gourmet food.
