Tortuga Island one day tour from Puntarenas
Board a luxury catamaran and explore the Gulf of Nicoya and Tortuga Island on this full-day, yacht tour with a skipper and crew. Sail to the island to enjoy a half-day of free time to take a banana boat ride, lounge on the beach, or play a little volleyball. Take a break with a four-course lunch in the shade served on linen tablecloths before sailing off past some of the Gulf’s protected islands.
What to Expect

After pickup at your Puntarenas at 8:00 a.m. a private dock and full breakfast. Board Calypso’s luxury yacht catamaran Manta Raya for the 90 minute ride across the Gulf of Nicoya. Enjoy local fruit onboard along the way.

Upon arrival at Tortuga Island, snorkel in the turquoise water and take a banana boat ride as part of your 5-hour stay on Tortuga Island. Savor a 4 course gourmet lunch served on tables set with white linen under the shade of umbrellas and enjoy live music and unlimited soft drinks and fruit juice (alcoholic drinks can be purchased at the bar). Beach chairs, hammocks, a volleyball court, and a slack line are also available. 

In the afternoon, board the Manta Raya for a Tour of Discovery of some of the protected islands in the Gulf of Nicoya, including Cedros Island, Jesusita Island, the bird sanctuary of Guayabo Island, Sugarloaf Island, Gypsy Island and San Lucas Island which used to be a maximum security prison, before returning to the dock, then re-board the bus to return to your hotel in San José.
