    So much fun!
    Tara_S, Mar 2022
    So much fun! The food and drinks were great and the staff was so friendly and helpful! Would 100% do this again!
    Small but ok
    johnpawley8, Feb 2022
    This is a classic case of you get what you pay for. The boat is much smaller but that’s not a bad thing if there were half the amount of people people on board. The staff was supper nice. According to the staff the seas in 2022 where not favorable for this type of adventure. The boat gets pushed around a lot because of its size and power. We never sailed we just motored the whole adventure unlike the other larger catamarans

    Ready! Set! Sail!
    MaryAnn_L, Jul 2021
    This by far was the best boat cruise I have been on! In addition to the all inclusive drinks, we had some really delicious food on board. But isn’t just it! The crew was amazing and very entertaining. They took all the necessary precautions to keep us safe and took it very seriously. We had such an amazing time and my only regret is that my friends and I can’t do it all over again! Next time I am in Tamarindo, I will be sure to book this tour again! By the way, the views are just absolutely breathtaking! If you’re lucky, you might even see some sea turtles along the way!

    Unreliable
    Gillian_A, Oct 2022
    They cancelled on us 20 minutes before our scheduled time due to a “last minute problem”. Did not see it until we were at the departure site looking for them. There were many other groups of people going for boating tours so we were very confused. Would not recommend to others, they are not reliable.
    Great Experience
    YuNeek_J, May 2021
    Thank you so much for the great experience that we had. We had Dennis, Gerardo, Oscar and they made our experience one to remember. I would definitely recommend them.

    Take any other boating excursion
    Kallista_Z, Aug 2021
    This trip had the potential to be fun. But it became a boat of nightmares midway through. Daniel and Javier were our skipper and captain, respectively, and they put us in complete danger. It was storming when we went in the ocean, but that wasn't the problem. When we docked at the beach Playa Huevo, Daniel told us to we were about to swim to the beach. Javier told my friend that she should only take a pool noodle without a life vest and she's not a swimmer. She told him she's only been swimming for one month. Another passenger who was drunk told her to use a life jacket as well as a pool noodle. Then when we arrived to shore after swimming for about mile. The storm started to pick up again, the waves became choppy and aggressive. Half of the passengers that swam to storm were beginning swimmers, and they started to panic. Even I was scared because the waves picked up, there was lightning and thunder, and I was tired from the first swim. One girl lost her retainer when a wave hit her. And Daniel was not good at insuring there would be no panic. My other friend had to swim back to the boat to get us another paddle board to help. Even the captain of another boat that was docked there jumped in the water to help us safely return to the boat. Because it was so unsafe, we requested to be returned to Tamarindo before the conclusion of the trip. I only swam to shore because I thought we were snorkelling there, then Daniel said we couldn't because the water was too brown. I still don't know the purpose of having us swim to shore and I don't know why Daniel advised us to do that in those conditions. It was poor management and judgment that put us in graver danger than necessary.

    This Tour Allows Far More Than 16 Passengers- Avoid If You Are Concerned About Safety.
    Amy_N, Dec 2021
    The tour allowed 25 people to sign up - it was not capped at 16 as the description reads. When my husband questioned the staff on the beach about the number of passengers, they pretended to not understand him. He speaks fluent Spanish so I am sure they understood what he was asking. One of my daughters and I decided not to go on the tour because of the number of passengers. When they returned my husband said he was the only passenger that spoke Spanish and he conversed with the crew. The crew was friendly enough, but the catamaran was crowded and there would have been nowhere for two other passengers to sit.
    Sail Away!
    Molly_G, Jul 2021
    Loved the guides, activities, and views! The crew was very attentive and aimed to please! This is more than just a sunset cruise. Having plenty of shade made the start of the trip comfortable and access to paddle boards and snorkel gear while we anchored enhanced an already enjoyable trip. Cruising along the coast as the sunset was the cherry on top.
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    Hola Molly, Thank you very much for your review. We love to know you had a great time aboard the Dream Chaser, we really appreciate your kind words and we hope you back soon. It was really nice to meet you. Pura vida!
    Long Boat Ride
    Mirline_L, Jan 2022
    Enjoyable long boat ride out into the middle of the ocean to swim and snorkle. The music going out to the snorkeling spot could have been more diverse to make the ride more fun. Coming back the music improved greatly and the sunset was picturesque. Overall it was an entertaining trip.

    Nothing Fancy, but Good
    Korrie_R, Feb 2022
    The trip was good, the water was rather choppy which made it hard to travel where we were suppose too. Staff was nice, & the lunch they made was really good as well.
    Perfect day
    tessa_g, Aug 2021

    Not a Great Experience
    Erika_W, Jun 2022
    Captain was not nice at all although the rest of the staff was very friendly. I feel like they should have known that the water was too choppy to sail on as more than half of the passengers got sick and vomited. We were not offered a refund or change of date, just a bunch of apologies. We ended up having to turn around. Not the best decision making on the part of the company or the captain. Other tours cancelled their trips due to the conditions.

    A very different experience
    nadia_a, Aug 2021
    This review is based off of my experience and precious experiences I’ve had on other catamarans. The water can be very choppy here in Costa Rica so when being on a smaller boat with possibly 15 people it can definitely feel cramped. Being on a smaller boat can definitely have you feeling everything on the water and if you are someone like me or not you have a high chance of getting motion sickness. My entire party was feeling sick after this experience, even those who don’t have motion sickness. This is not the crews fault but they could have been more prepared for it, as they have had people who do get sick. They were more focused on the other participants and partying with them. Also, telling us to vomit on the side where there is no bar while the boat is bouncing recklessly. We sure were ready to leave this boat. As we did enjoy the stop at the beach and the down time but the time back and forth there was nowhere what we expected. I would recommend looking at other, bigger boats, if that is what you are use to and want to experience the least amount of sea sickness.

    Disappointing
    kiersten_s, May 2021
    Very disappointing- crew over served passengers who became belligerent and inappropriate in front of my god son. No food left by the time I got in line. Bad bad experience
