True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast,"...

True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast," Manuel Antonio's beautiful coast is rich in both marine and terrestrial wildlife. The mountain rain forest slopes right down to the beautiful white sand beaches.

A morning or afternoon (sunset) cruise aboard either our Sailboat, or Trimaran, is the perfect way to enjoy all that the Manuel Antonio Coast has to offer.

As you sail past the offshore islets, which serve as a rookery to many sea birds, including brown boobies, frigates and pelicans, you'll marvel at the graceful way they soar. You will thrill to their amazing displays of fishing prowess, as they dive into the ocean, and fly away with their catch.

As your boat glides through the water, you will likely encounter Dolphins, which love to swim in our bow wake. Occasional Giant Sea Turtles and whales are a special treat, when they appear.

One of the highlights of your tour is snorkeling, while at anchor in a beautiful Jungle Bay. All of your snorkel gear is provided by the crew of Sunset Sails. A guide will lead you to the reef, which is home to many species of beautiful and fascinating fish. If you float cracker crumbs, you'll be amazed, as schools of fish dart all around you, in a feeding frenzy. Parrotfish, damselfish, sargeant majors, wrasses, puffers and many more beautiful fish abound on the reef. If you have an underwater camera, you might want to bring it with you.

Of course, one of the real highlights of our Sunset Cruise, is the Sunset. As the sun sets into the ocean horizon, it often creates spectacularly beautiful displays of color. It's a perfect, romantic ending to a beautiful day in "Paradise"

Whether on our Trimaran or Sailboat, Sunset Sails Tours is your number one choice for a wonderful and relaxing boat tour in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

We chose to book our day trip of Snorkelling & Dolphin watching with this company rather than one of their larger rivals. The crew worked really hard to be welcoming and provide excellent, friendly and personalised service from beginning to end. We felt in safe hands on the well-maintained boat. Drinks were plentiful and the cooked lunch was very good.... More

We were SO lucky to share the boat with only one other couple. Alex was attentive, friendly, and quick to provide food and drinks. He was also really good at spotting wildlife and making sure that we all could see it. We saw dolphins, turtles, birds, and fish during our sunset cruise. Snorkeling wasn't great because of the water quality,... More

We were part of a group of a few dozen who chartered the Trimaran Lorelei with Sunset Sails for a birthday celebration. The boat was very comfortable, clean, and the perfect size to allow personal interaction--not the mass transit that other companies sail. The trip took us out off Punta Catedral in Manual Antonio National Park--not a long trip. Our... More

It was suggested we use a bigger company, but had read the reviews for Sunset Sails Tours and decided to go with them, we were not disappointed. From the staff, Alex, Christopher and Quirico(sp?) the father and the captain they outdid themselves. The personal attention, the food, the drinks, and of course the the trip itself, everything was top notch.... More

We had a great time. It's a small boat so you're not one of many, and can actually talk to people. It's a family run company. We saw dolphins, swam, jumped off the water slide into the ocean, had a good solid meal and some drinks, then watched the sunset and came back to the marina. The snorkeling is not... More

I normally don't opt for tours but I'm so glad I did. This was recommended through our hostel and it was a great way to end our time in Manuel Antonio. We started in the afternoon and got to see dolphins along the way. Eventually when the boat stopped, we were able to stop and snorkel and they provided the... More

We can not say enough good things about this trip and the staff!! We went on the morning tour and it was just our family of 5.

The size of the boat was perfect, just enough people so that we could make friends but not overcrowded like the other boats we saw. Not only is the food amazingly good but the staff is outstanding. They are spontaneous, social and caring! Amazing experience and if you are clumsy like me and think you will drop your camera or... More
