The sailing tours depart from Playa Tamarindo on a 66-foot sailing catamaran, the Marlin del Rey. This large boat is registered for up to 85 passengers, and it is capable of reaching 25-knot speeds under sail. A forty foot beam provides space for guests to soak up the sun and enjoy the day, while a huge main saloon hosts an open bar and snacks of chips, dip, fruit, ceviche, and salad.

Daily tours depart at both 8:30am and 1:30pm. The morning Day Sail snorkeling tour leaves Tamarindo Bay and sails north to the glamorous beach of Playa Conchal. Here, the boat drops anchor, and the crew prepares snacks. Guests can enjoy both the cool temperate water and beautiful white-shell beach. Many choose to snorkel among rock reefs in search of colorful fish and eels.

The Sunset Sail Tour departs from Tamarindo Bay at 1:30. On this tour, the boat skims along the coastline past Playa Grande and Bahia De Los Pirates. The boat then puts out anchor in tranquil bay, giving guests time to enjoy snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing on the boat. Meanwhile the crew will prepare delicious snacks. Then, the tour sails back to Tamarindo for an amazing sunset over the water.

Marlin del Rey presents excellence in comfort and service with a friendly bilingual staff. While you're in Costa Rica, skim silently along the coast, feel the sun on your face, and look off the bow for dolphins, flying fish, sea turtles, and perhaps even a breaching whale.

What to Bring

Light fresh clothing, towels, swimming suit, sunscreen, sun glasses, hat, sandals, camera. (No walking with shoes on the catamaran is allowed)

What's included

Traveler Comments

This was amazing! Loved the views and being able to swim. And again, the timing was off for this and we got back later than the confirmation said.


One of the most special days my daughters and I ever had. Captain and crew were super careful with everything. Great food after the snorkeling. We saw a whale, best sunset ever. Thank you for suggesting this event!
