Guanacaste Snorkeling Tours is the perfect adventure to explore the Papagayo Gulf marine life and discover different secluded beaches accessed only by boat, you will relax on white sands and brown beaches with turquoise and warm waters to swim. Enjoy visiting as many beaches as possible, visit a cave and discover the colorful marine life of our Pacific Ocean.
Guanacaste Snorkeling Tours will take you to some of the premier spots and secluded beaches of the Papagayo Gulf. The tour starts at 8.00 am for the morning tour or 1.30 pm for the sunset tour, with 15 minutes of navigation to the first spot for snorkeling. Also, we can find playful dolphins swimming alongside or behind the boat and turtles. During their season, it is possible to observe humpback whales and their calf.
The calm and clear waters of the Pacific Ocean are also excellent for diving and snorkeling. The ocean here is abundant in nutrients which make it rich in marine life; some of the fish you may see are angelfish, Moorish idol, puffers, surgeon-fish, snapper, parrotfish, damsels, and a variety of eels. Turtles, sting, manta rays, and the non-aggressive reef shark may also be spotted. Depending on your snorkeling experience will determine which site we go to first.
All of our Guanacaste Snorkeling Tours make a stop at Playa Huevos, where you can explore a nice cave that is possible to visit during the low tide. The beach is very calm, and it is possible to snorkel from the beach. Another stop is Playa Jicaros, located inside the peninsula; during the low tide, this is a natural clear pool. Depending on the tide, we can also visit Playa Palmares or Nacascolito.
The beaches and spots chosen for your Guanacaste Snorkeling Tours will depend on tide levels, wind direction, and speed. We also consider your experience in the ocean or as a swimmer; we want to be sure you will have plenty and a safe adventure with us.
We can pick you up at most of the hotels and beaches near Playas del Coco, but depending on the tide, ground transportation could need it. If we don’t have a double tour, we can set your adventure to be enjoyed during the best time along with the low tide.
