Great cruise! Afternoon departure with a nice ride to a decent snorkeling site. I had lower expectations for snorkeling in CR based on other reviews but I estimate that I counted 15+ species in 30 minutes. Back on the boat we had a very good...More

Our tour started out with being picked up from the hotel. The ride to the pier was about 15 minutes long. At the pier we received wavier bracelets, and waited for about 5 minutes until our coat was called. The boat was great. It had...More

Our large extended family took the Planet Dolphin Sunset Cruise on the Tom Cat. Although it can hold 150, there were only about 50 aboard which made for a nice experience. The boat is clean and has bathroom facilities. We cruised along the coastline seeing...More

This boat tour was very average. Snorkeling took place in an area that was way too small for the number of people, and they started using the slides at the same time so people were constantly at risk of crashing into each other. The lunch...More

We went on the afternoon tour which included snorkeling, food/drinks and nice tour. We were lucky enough to see humpback whales while out on the boat. Due to the current we didn’t see many fish, but would still recommend.
