For those who are unfamiliar with a Trimaran, it is very similar to a Catamaran.  In fact the only big difference between the two, is that the Trimaran has a main hull and two smaller outrigger hulls, while a Catamaran has two hulls. 

Enjoying a Catamaran Sunset Tour in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica is the same as being on our 49 ft Trimaran which offers plenty of shade and space for all passengers.

We had a fantastic time seeing the beautiful coast of Manual Antonio and the stunning sunset. The crew was especially friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed drinks and a delicious fish dinner. I recommend this tour that is smaller and more personalized

Amazing, my wife and I had a blast. The guides were all very personable and easy to talk to but also very respectful and observant of the mood on the trip. They have a sixth sense on when to chat and when to leave you to enjoy. They cooked a quick meal below deck and it was delicious. Golden fried fish, freshly caught, that was flavorful and cooked to perfection. They honestly got it better than a lot of upscale restaurants I've been to. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Recomendadísimo, la atención de la tripulación fue excelente, vimos delfines, hicimos snorkel, nos dieron bebidas, agua, y un almuerzo riquísimo. Pudimos alquilar un velero solo para nosotros y el precio es razonable, se pasa muy bien, mi familia y yo estamos muy agradecidos.

Esta experiencia fué increíble! Nuestro guía Bryan y su equipo estuvieron estupendos durante todo el viaje. La vista en el catamaran era hermosa y alcanzamos a ver una ballena y eso que no era la temporada. Nos fuimos muy felices después de ese paseo tan extraordinario. Definitivamente volveremos en el futuro.

Muy recomendable. No sólo vimos 3 ballenas jorobadas, algo que nos avisaron de que tal vez no fuera posible ya que no era temporada, sino que fueron encantadores y nos llevaron a ver muchos y variados peces de colores.Esta familia te cuida y terminan llevándote a hacer snorkel a una zona llena de peces de colores y cuando sales del agua, te dan de comer rico y sano.Lo mejor, cómo te cuidan y te hacen sentir.

Con un buque encantador de préstamos, no hay preocupación del distrito social. Podría tener una gran parte de las ballenas mama para ser bebé. Un monopolipulgante una maravillosa vista, beber, servicio de comidas, tiempo para nadar en el mar, y la mayoría de ellos son los mejores.

This trip was AMAZING!!!! The crew/staff/chef worked so hard and were all so genuine and kind and helpful and knowledgeable. My family and I highly recommend this trip! We did the snorkel sunset cruise with dinner and drinks. The food was excellent! Along with snorkeling there is a slide or you can jump off the top of the boat. We saw dolphins the entire trip! They swam right along with the boat, jumping and playing. The views, the swimming and the sunset was perfect. I can’t say enough about the team of guys who ran the trip. Thank you!!!!

We absolutely LOVED the sunset sail! The trimaran was super comfortable, the food was delicious, the music was nice... and the captain and his staff were great! We could see more than 20 dolphins and the captain really made an effort to ‘chase them’. We had nice drinks throughout the trip and the spot for snorkeling was very beautiful. One of our best experiences in Costa Rica - highly recommended!

Our experience was fantastic! They took us to a coral reef where there were many schools of fish which gave us a great snorkelling experience. We had ample time to swim in the ocean. They provided us unlimited drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and the dinner served was simple but tasty. They also provided seconds to everyone who wanted more. The total boat trip was approximately 4 hours.

Un couple de français de 60 ans, enchanté d'avoir choisi SUNSET SAILS TOURS pour une sortie sur l'océan PACIFIQUE en trimaran, de 14heures jusqu'à 18h. Nous avons d'abord naviguer en découvrant les côtes du Costa Rica, puis rencontrer des dauphins et enfin pratiqué le snorkeling au milieu de nombreux poissons, sans oublier nos descentes depuis le toboggan du bateau. Pendant toute la sortie, l'équipe a été à nos petits soins, cocktails de bienvenue, autres boissons, et un très bon repas. Une excellente ambiance entre tous les passagers de différentes nationalités. Certains ont chanté et dansé. Nous avons assisté a un très beau coucher de soleil avec applaudissements. Mille mercis. PURA VIDA AMIGOS

This was a major highlight while we were in Manuel Antonio. You won’t find a better team than Sunset Sails. It’s basically three tours in one-you go whale watching, sail at sunset and snorkeling. It was so much fun! The dinner they served us was delicious!These folks really treat you like family. I’m so glad we booked with them!

This is only the second review I have ever left in my life but I felt whole heartedly that I should come online and give these guys 5 stars.Friendly guide/server/chefs, good drinks, great food, nice boat. Always available and asking you if you need anything else.Also really enjoyed the size of the boat and that it they normally don’t fill the boat to max capacity for more space for everyone.And we got to see dolphins!Awesome!

This family owned catamaran tour company will have you feeling like family by the end of your tour. Brian, Diego, and Christopher had my partner and I laughing so hard throughout the whole thing. We saw so many neat fish while snorkeling, saw a handful of dolphins, and got to just chill on the boat when we were done snorkeling. The food was bomb. So so so good. Amazing! They offer vegetarian and gluten free options if it's needed, but I would highly recommend getting the fish option because it was unreal! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a more personalized tour and for anyone wanting to support local. You will not regret choosing Sunset Sail Tours, trust me!

We had such a great time on the sailboat, delicious food, plentiful drinks, amazing fish (snorkels weren't the best so bring your own if you have one). Our boat was mostly a slightly older crowd than it seemed to be for the larger more party oriented boats. The sailboat takes 25 and the trimaran 40, both were pretty full and have enough shade. No dolphins for us unfortunately and it's the wrong time of year for whales (although someone did claim to see one a couple of weeks ago). Very nice staff with great convo!

Our sunset tour was one of the highlights of our trip, Ecotermales Fortuna hot springs being the other. We saw a lot of dolphins, which was thrilling. The crew was super nice and efficient. We enjoyed the rum drinks and the dinner. It was nice to have a chance to snorkel and swim as well. It was a lot of fun.

We booked the sunset sail afternoon tour in Feb 2019 during our honeymoon in Costa Rica and we loved it! Very friendly, fun staff, great food and atmosphere, clean and neat boat and we even spotted humpback whales! We loved that it was a smaller boat as compared to some other catamarans in the area, what makes the experience kind of feel like going on a cruise with friends! Great value for the price!

Really great boat ride with amazing crew! Our 2.5 years old boy was able to join us with his life west while we were snorgling. The captain of the boat even made sure that he would also see all the fishes using his little trick 🙂 The lunch cooked onboard was really tasty.Muchas gracias!

My family did the sunset tour and it was a highlight of our trip! The staff was so friendly and made it so fun, and kept the food and drinks flowing! They attended to every need and were so helpful. The snorkeling was amazing and we saw dolphins during the boat ride! The water was beautiful and the sunset was gorgeous.There were about 30 people on the boat and we met some really nice people. I like the fact that it was smaller because it felt more intimate rather than some of the huge boats that carry like 100 people.Would highly recommend! Worth every penny.

Christopher, Alex and the rest of the staff was professional and very kind. They don’t overcrowd their boats like tours in the US which we really appreciated. Would go with this company again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much guys! Pure Vida !

One of the best decisions I made was booking a Catamaran tour with Sunset Sails Tours. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. I really enjoyed that they went out of their way to make sure everyone on the boat was having a good time. They even offer some medicine in case anyone suffers from sea sickness.

Unfortunately the visibility was poor because of the recent weather, but that didn't stop this from being an amazing trip! The tour guides/crew were all extremely hospitable and friendly. The food they served was very good, and they were always very perceptive to the needs of those on the boat. Even with a large crowd that we weren't part of, my wife and I never felt unnoticed or forgotten. Trip was gorgeous, water was pleasant. Would definitely recommend

We joined one of their morning sail tours and had a wonderful time. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and the boat was not crowded at all, so that everyone had enough space to relax and have a good time. We sailed along the beautiful coast of Manuel Antonio and were able to spot some dolphins, which was a wonderful experience. Snorkeling wasn´t great, since the water was too murky, but the staff told us before booking - that was very professional! But even without snorkeling we had a very good time. Free Drinks, delicious lunch, nice music and a refreshing swim in the water, we couldn´t ask for more.Thanks for this awesome experience, we can recommend this tour to anyone traveling around the Manuel Antonio region.

This place was one of the highlights of our trip. We were picked up from our AirBNB, and brought to the docks. The staff was insanely helpful, and offered us drinks the entire time. When we got to where we were going to snorkel they made sure all of our gear was perfect and led us to a spot with lots of fish. After snorkeling we were able to jump/slide off the boat, along with a delicious lunch/cocktails. Overall very well organized and super enjoyable. Highly recommend.

When we visit again, we will definitely book another trip! Pura Vida

I went on the trimaran cruise from quepos with sunset tours. We had a fabulous time, the crew were all great, they followed the birds and led us to dolphins which was awesome! The boat was perfect, the cocktails flowed and everyone had a great time! Even bad weather did not dampen it. I enjoyed it so much, I went back for a second cruise solo, but they didn’t have enough bookings due to a major storm the night before, and we got put on a ‘Dolphin’ catamaran tour instead and it was nowhere near as good

I traveled with a group of 8 friends, we booked the catamaran for one morning to go whale watching and snorkeling. On the catamaran they provided juice, rum drinks, pineapple for a snack and fish, rice and veggies for lunch. 2 of us are gluten free and they provided a fish option for us as well. We all had a great experience and we did see multiple whales! Followed by a boat ride, and a snorkel/swim. After snorkeling and swimming we went back to the dock for lunch because multiple people were sea sick, which was fine with everyone. It did not take away from the experience. Lunch was delicious! Minor and the boat crew were fantastic!

Just returned from a great morning onboard with Sunset Sails. Alex was an excellent host and ensured everybody had a wonderful morning. As it is off season there were only 6 passengers, which made if feel like an exclusive tour. We saw a great variety of sealife, including Spotted Dolphins, Pelicans and flying fish. Lunch was amazingly good, fresh fish with rice and potatoes. The crew were highly professional and friendly. If you are going to Quepos/Manuel Antonio - book this tour as the boat is smaller and the crew are great. Thanks guys for a lovely morning on the water.

We took the 4-hour sunset cruise on a catamaran in April 2016. The boat held a lot more people than went so it didn't feel crowded at all. There was a slide and plenty of shade. The service was amazing! We were handed drinks almost immediately and they keep coming. We were served a late lunch/early dinner of traditional food which was very tasty fish. We were pampered and waited on constantly. We went snorkeling near a coral reef where the guide actually threw out food to make sure some fish would come around for us to look at! They had a fresh water shower for us when we got out of the ocean. The people were friendly and fun. We had a blast and I highly recommend using them!

All-around amazing experience! We went on a sunset sail. It was very relaxing, there were free cocktails and the staff was very attentive. You get to go snorkeling and slide into the sea before being served a warm meal of vegetables, salad, rice, beans, and fish. I'd definitely recommend to anyone- families, couples, friends

A faire absolument !
We had a great afternoon on the water with our guide Miner, our captain Jorge and our chef Stanley. The approximately four hour afternoon cruise which gave us an opportunity to snorkel, provided us with a lovely meal and drinks, took us around the shore of national Park Manuel Antonio then took us farther out to view dolphins and returned slowly to the marina as we watched the sunset. We were looking for a smaller group tour. This boat accommodated approximately 24 people and was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for a lovely day

I didn’t want to go on a big party boat, and this was just perfect 😍 soooo relaxing, very friendly staff who made it even more enjoyable, great food, just the right number of people on board, and fantastic sunset as promised 😍 we didn’t see dolphins but we had an amazing afternoon.

You guys are the BEST! Thank you for a great afternoon yesterday! We had the best time. I highly recommend you to everyone! What really made it spectacular is Bryan & Chris!! You both mingling with everyone made us all relaxed and we made some great friends while aboard your vessel. You father (Captain) knew exactly where to go and we seen lots of spotted dolphins! Keep doing what your doing because EVERYONE had a great time and you made sure of that! The meal at the end was the perfect ending! Thank you all for this amazing time! Can’t wait to come back!

We had a wonderful experience on the morning boat tour. Minor was an excellent guide, and the rest of the crew was incredibly friendly. I definitely appreciated the smaller crowd on this boat, as it made for a more personal experience. I would highly recommend this tour!

We joined one of their morning sail tours and had a wonderful time. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and the boat was not crowded at all, so that everyone had enough space to relax and have a good time. We sailed along the beautiful coast of Manuel Antonio and were able to spot some dolphins, which was a wonderful experience. Snorkeling wasn´t great, since the water was too murky, but the staff told us before booking - that was very professional! But even without snorkeling we had a very good time. Free Drinks, delicious lunch, nice music and a refreshing swim in the water, we couldn´t ask for more.

Thanks for this awesome experience, we can recommend this tour to anyone traveling around the Manuel Antonio region.

I went on the sunset and snorkeling tour. Since it was low season, it was just four people on the boat. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins or much fish since the sea was murky, but that was out of the hands of the tour company. I still had a lot of fun and the tour guide Alex was not bad to look at 😉

A group of 6 of us did the Valentines Day Sunset Cruise and it was absolutely amazing! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip to CR....the staff were very friendly and were always making sure that everyone was being taken care of and had everything they needed. The dinner provided was very good and you were offered seconds. Try the pineapple, definitely WAY better than what we have back here at home. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. The marina is beautiful by day, but especially gorgeous at sunset. Visit the gelato store while there....yummy!!!

The steady flow of fruit drinks, the tropical music, and the beauty of the coastline made our trip so relaxing. It's definitely worth the cost and I recommend it to everyone!

True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means “Rich Coast,” Manuel Antonio’s beautiful coast is rich in both marine and terrestrial wildlife. The mountain rain forest slopes right down to the beautiful white sand beaches.

A morning or afternoon (sunset) cruise aboard either our Sailboat, or Trimaran, is the perfect way to enjoy all that the Manuel Antonio Coast has to offer.  Our catamaran cruise is ranked on TripAdvisor as one of the best things to do in Manuel Antonio.

As you sail past the offshore islets, which serve as a rookery to many sea birds, including brown boobies, frigates and pelicans, you’ll marvel at the graceful way they soar. You will thrill to their amazing displays of fishing prowess, as they dive into the ocean, and fly away with their catch.

One of the highlights of your tour is snorkeling, while at anchor in a beautiful Jungle Bay. All of your snorkel gear is provided by the crew of Sunset Sails. A guide will lead you to the reef, which is home to many species of beautiful and fascinating fish. If you float cracker crumbs, you’ll be amazed, as schools of fish dart all around you, in a feeding frenzy. Parrotfish, damselfish, sargeant majors, wrasses, puffers and many more beautiful fish abound on the reef. If you have an underwater camera, you might want to bring it with you.

As your boat glides through the water, you will likely encounter Dolphins, which love to swim in our bow wake. Occasional Giant Sea Turtles and whales are a special treat, when they appear.

It is always a thrill to see the reaction from our guests when we encounter dolphins on our Manuel Antonio Coastal Boat Cruise. The dolphins that are most frequently seen are the Spotted Dolphin, Bottlenose Dolphin and Snipper Dolphin.

For those interested in viewing the Humpback Whale, the best time to see this magnificent mammal is from August through the end of October.  We have written an article about our whale watching cruise in Manuel Antonio.

Of course, one of the real highlights of our Sunset Cruise, is the Sunset. As the sun sets into the ocean horizon, it often creates spectacularly beautiful displays of color. It’s a perfect, romantic ending to a beautiful day in “Paradise”.
