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.

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.

Thank you to the Captain for showing us dolphins and a good spot to snorkel and swim! We made some great friends on your boat and it was because of you all mingling and making us feel comfortable.

What a fantastic morning! We did the AM tour-transportation to the marina, dolphin spotting, snorkeling, drinks, an amazing lunch and magnificent staff. 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.

My family and I had a great experience with Brian and Christian of Sunset Sails! They are both knowledgeable and entertaining and go out of their way to accommodate you! Furthermore, with Sunset Sails, your are not part of a “cattle heard” they are a small company that gives you individual attention! Best of all, the fresh food was out of this world!! 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!

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”.
