Snorkeling Tour at Marino Ballena National Park

Uvita
  • Encompassing 13,300 acres of ocean (5,400 marine hectares) and the largest coral reef on the Pacific side of Central America, the Marino Ballena National Park is a snorkeler's paradise. Fish to be spotted include parrot fish, spotted rose snapper, pacific dog snapper, and butterfly fish; turtles and manta rays can be seen cruising slowly through the water, and a variety of sea-floor creatures - including starfish, sea cucumbers and sand dollars - can be observed creeping slowly along the bottom of the ocean. The park's 18 different species of coral reef can likewise be enjoyed, providing snorkelers with a colorful and intricate perspective into some of the ocean's most vital life-forms. Furthermore, dolphins and whales can occasionally be seen plying the waters around the boat.

This tour includes visits to Isla Ballena - where much of the snorkeling is done - and the Ventanas Caves, wonderful natural water passages that, if weather conditions permit, the boat's captain will navigate the boat through.

This tour lasts 2 hours.
