Luxury Rentals & Private Boat Tours in Costa Rica: A Perfect Combination

Costa Rica and Tamarindo, especially, are a haven for on-water experiences, luxury cruising, sunset private boat tours Costa Rica, and so much more. Whether you’re here more for the luxury rentals Costa Rica Guanacaste or for the adventure itself, the country consistently serves up tours, experiences, and accommodations that create forever memories.

Private Cruise

When it comes to quintessential Costa Rican experiences, few surpass the allure of a catamaran or yacht cruise, especially at sunset.

At first glance, a cruise promises sheer enjoyment: board private boat tours Costa Rica in the early afternoon, glide to a secluded cove for swimming, snorkeling, and beachside lounging. Perhaps you’ll catch sight of an octopus or colorful tropical fish. Sink your toes into the soft sand, float in the Pacific’s gentle embrace, then reboard for a tropical picnic featuring chips, guacamole, fresh fruits, veggies, and other delectable snacks – all before sailing off into the sunset. Literally.

But oh, the sunset. Words like “awe-struck” and “breathtaking” seem tailor-made for this experience. Just an easy cruise from shore, a sunset at sea somehow feels other –as though you’re drawn miles closer to the sun. It’s the kind of moment that quickens your pulse and begs you take deeper breath, as if to inhale a memory now etched into eternity.

For an added touch of luxury, opt for a private charter: in addition to the standard offerings, enjoy an open bar stocked with beer, rum, tequila, vodka, and cocktails. You’ll also have greater flexibility in shaping your itinerary, including the option to choose your boat.

Our selection of premier vessels ranges from 38’ to 52’ catamarans, yachts, and sailboats, boasting multi-level decks, dining areas, air-conditioned salons, deck hammocks, spacious bedrooms, freshwater showers, and other luxurious amenities. Our luxury vessels feature private bathrooms, swim-off and -on transoms, expansive decks, generous sleeping quarters, and more.

Water Sports

Costa Rica promises so many quintessential on-water experiences. Here are a few of our guests’ favorites:

Ocean Kayaking

If you crave an adrenaline rush with a splash of saltwater, consider an ocean kayaking tour. You can take it easy by paddling near the shore or ramp up the adventure with a challenging excursion to Capitan Island – a 40-minute paddle each way. This journey promises stunning scenery, snorkeling opportunities, and a half-day of exhilarating physical activity.

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

Think you have good balance? Put it to the test with stand-up paddle boarding, affectionately known as SUP, a beloved sport on Costa Rica’s North-Pacific coast. Our two-hour session takes place at one of our favorite tranquil beaches, where you'll learn to stand, balance, and glide over the Pacific waters. And if you take an unplanned dip, just blame it on soaking in paradise!

Sport Fishing

Costa Rica, and particularly Tamarindo, is world-renowned for sport fishing – and for good reason! Our waters are teeming with marlin (black, striped, blue), yellowfin tuna, mahi-mahi, snapper, grouper, roosterfish, jacks, wahoo, sailfish, and more.

Join us for an unforgettable fishing expedition with the best boats and crews in Tamarindo – skilled, experienced, and friendly. Choose from half-day, 3/4 day, or full-day tours spanning near-shore to deep-sea fishing, lasting 5, 7, or 8 hours.

Surf Lessons

Tamarindo boasts world-famous surf for all skill levels – from massive waves to gentle breaks.

Our epic surf lessons cater to beginners and seasoned surfers alike. With patient and knowledgeable instructors, you'll conquer the waves that suit your confidence and skill level. Whether it's your first time on a board or you're seeking a new challenge, our certified instructors will tailor the lesson to you.
