Jaco – BOAT TOUR
Tortuga Island. A small Island in Costa Rica……That has an International reputation. Turquoise blue waters, a white sand beach fringed with Coconut Palms, and a coral reef teeming with colorful tropical fish. It is all that and more.
Come with us as you leave Herradura bay (Jaco) for the journey by boat directly to Tortuga. (With us you don’t need to sit on a bus for well over an hour to Puntarenas).
The Boat journey gives you a chance to see some of the impressive coastlines and relax and enjoy some early morning sun while our staff sees to your every need. Enjoy fresh local fruit and a rum punch or two. We have our own rum punch we call Happy Juice. it is complimentary all-day
On arrival at Tortuga, you will go directly on the snorkeling tour around a coral reef, where the number and types of tropical fish will amaze you.
On to the beach to relax while your crew put the finishing touches to a fantastic lunch.
You have some free time to enjoy the Island.
On the way home, you usually find the Dolphins off the coast and they are always a delight as they come and play in the bow wave from the boat. Always a treat. Humpback whales migrate through the area. At certain times we can see them every day. Currently (March 2012) we are seeing them from time to time, but not every day. That said we saw them every day last week!
