About
On Serendipity we celebrate sailing, nature and our deep appreciation for the ocean. She is a 50 foot monohull sailing yacht (Beneteau Oceanis), crewed by an experienced, safe and bilingual crew. We are not a catamaran, we are not a booze cruise. All of our charters include a premium open bar (no well alcohol on Serendipity), a fresh and healthy appetizer and our made to order signature chicken tacos. We will provide all snorkeling and fishing gear and one of our crew will guide your group on a snorkel. Overnight trips are available to local anchorages and Witch's Rock and Ollies Point in the Santa Rosa National Park.

Awesome experience! The boat was clean and high quality, the captain and staff were friendly, professional, and provided great service. It was a small group and very laid back and relaxing. Quality food and drinks were served, an hour plus spent in a beautiful calm bay/beach and a sail back during sunset. One of the best excursions I have taken on a vacation. If you are looking to relax and avoid the chaos of the booze cruise, this is a gem.

We were originally interested in one of the catamaran tours but we were a bit turned off by the label of "booze cruise". If you just want to get drunk with other loud Americans and motor around on a catamaran there are lots of options. Then we discovered Serendipity charters. This is a true sailing experience with a wonderful crew that went way beyond our expectations. The boat itself is very comfortable with 14 passengers and 3 crew. We all staked out our real estate on deck and in the cockpit but eventually we all moved around freely and it never felt crowded or unsafe. The sailing itself was very comfortable and the captain was extremely communicative about what was happening at all times. We were able to snorkel around a nice rock formation where we saw plenty of fish and a few turtles. They also served us great cocktails and delicious food throughout our trip. The porpoises guided us for a little while and then we had another amazing sunset as we glided back to the marina. All in all it was worth every cent and we would eagerly do it again on our next visit.

Our group of eight had a great time with Captain Bismarck and Jonathon. They treated us so well with delicious cocktails, snacks and lunch. They were personable and worked so well together. The snorkel and swim spot was enjoyable. Then we had tacos for lunch that were so good! They cared for their passengers, and were very engaging and safety conscious. The beautiful sunset with great friends with perfect music selection made for a fantastic finale to the day! We highly recommend.

Our trip was fantastic!!!! Bismarck, Christopher and Daniel were amazing. The food and drinks were good. Snorkeling was a blast. Seeing the sun going down at the same time the moon was up was incredible. Truly breathtaking views on a beautiful sailboat. Highly Highly recommend Serendipity Charters.

Wow. What a great experience. Bismark and his crew too such good care of us. We went out with our extended family. 7 adults and 7 children. The treated us like royalty. The sailing was wonderful, the cove we anchored in was quaint and had fun swimming and snorkeling. Lunch was fabulous and the drinks were...... copious.

If you want to SAIL...... take the sloop, skip the catamarans.

Highly recommended.

Amazing afternoon! 13 people was enough so it didn’t feel excess. Definitely not the booze cruise some of the catamarans can be!
Crew were delightful and food fabulous I will certainly do this again if I return to beautiful Costa Rica

I cannot recommend Serendipity highly enough!! It was a fabulous day! Six of us booked the all day private charter. Jonathan was our captain and Gerald was his mate. We loved them. They anticipated our every need and were so gracious, fun, and friendly! The sailboat was a 50 ft well-appointed monohull. The food and drink were wonderful and the snorkeling was great as well. I will be back!

We sail with Serendipity every year we come. We love the sunset cruise and have sailed both with Lucky 13 & private charter. The food and drinks are delicious & plentiful. They have even improved over the years. The service is top notch. We appreciate that they use the sails as much as possible. The marina location makes it so much easier to comfortably get in and out of the sailboat. The best thing is the passengers are limited which makes for a great experience.

Thank you for continuing to choose Serendipity, we know you have many options out there. We also find that 13 is the right number for the group sails. We love sailing and have a brand new sail on the way to us right now! Hasta la proxima! -Geneva
