Last Saturday we took our friend Sam who is visiting us out on a Catamaran, one of our favorite things to do here in Costa Rica. There are a few Catamaran boat options in our area but we like the Marlin Del Rey that leaves out of Tamarindo. The owner of the Marlin Del Rey is a parent at our kids school so he gives us a nice discounted rate. But not only that, they have a great staff and a really great boat.
We take the sunset snorkel tour that leaves at 1:30pm and brings you back in around 6:00pm. You spend about an hour getting out to a snorkeling spot and then about an hour and a half snorkeling and eating a light lunch, it’s all you can drink too! They provide all the snorkel equipment, life jackets and noodles. Depending on the time of year you can see sea turtles and dolphins in the water.
Usually my kids just jump off the back of the boat, which is a low platform close to the water, but this time they jumped from the front of the boat which is about a 8 foot drop. I am sure my mom will not appreciate any of these pictures. I didn’t capture a ton of photos, because I was too busy jumping too!
