North Pacific - Sámara / Carrillo
Ocean Safari 2-in-1 (Dolphin Sightseeing & Snorkeling)

If you have never seen a dolphin or a whale, your chances are good on this tour. The Northern Pacific has much fame in spotting many different species of sea mammals. We will go 2 to 10 miles offshore from Samara and Carrillo beaches where one can feel the ocean breeze while gazing at the coastline scenery during our search for these playful animals. You could be lucky enough to see Spotted dolphins, Central American Spinner dolphins, Common Bottlenose Dolphins, and Humpback whales.

Along the way back to the coast, we will anchor near the shores of Isla Chora, the delightful white-sand beach full of hermit crabs and iguanas. You can cool off in the clear blue sea while continuing your search for underwater life. Beneath the surface teems a lively, colorful world normally hidden from view. Take advantage of the marine life of Costa Rica.

Come experience the wonders of the ocean.
