This tour begins at the marina in Playa Flamingo. Travelers will board a luxury catamaran and set sail along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Your captain will navigate about 5 miles from the marina, giving you access to lovely isolated beaches and snorkel locations. Enjoy a cocktail and views of the ocean as you glide along—the ship’s open bar includes beer, wine, rum, vodka, cacique, tequila, mojitos, margaritas, soft drinks, and water.
Eventually, you’ll stop in a tranquil bay and drop anchor. A snorkeling guide is on hand to show you the best snorkeling spots and help you find tropical fish, starfish, sea turtles, dolphins, and maybe even whales. This is a great opportunity to see some of Costa Rica’s most colorful marine life. You’re also given the option of sea kayaking, fishing, or relaxing on a white-sand beach.
While you do this, a chef will prepare a delicious spread of food, including options like chicken burritos, guacamole, refried beans, vegetables, chips and dip, pico de gallo, fresh fruit, and cookies.
After eating you’ll head back to the marina at Playa Flamingo. Those that are on the afternoon tour will enjoy the sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
There are both morning and afternoon tours available. Morning tours leave at 8:30 AM and return at 12:30 PM. Afternoon tours leave at 2:00 PM and return at 6:00 PM. Private tours can also be arranged.

On a beautiful sunny day, we set sail out to sea. The captain and the crew were so attentive, friendly and made our trip amazing! We didn't see too much while snorkeling, but did see dolphins and sea turtles during our trip out to the north coast. The captain slowed down so that we could all see and appreciate the sea animals! Free flowing cocktails and delicious food topped it all off to make it a spectacular day out! I would definitely recommend Panache Catamaran sailing to everyone!
This was one of my favorite excursions!!! This trip is so awesome!!!!!! It was a lot of fun and the crew was incredible! They made it so much fun and they were so accommodating for my food allergies - made me feel special. Highly recommend this trip!!!!!!
