The sometimes high swells and strong currents combined with the steep volcanic rock structures make snorkeling on our shoreline virtually impossible and generally dangerous. For this reason we don’t offer snorkeling along this shore!
But fortunately the only 16 nautical miles distant Isla Tortuga “Tortuga Island” offers the best snorkeling conditions in Costa Rica!!
Tortuga Island, a small island on the other side of the Gulf of Nicoya, provides a protected beach with candid white sands and several rock formations. This pristine environment is ideal for a pleasant and safe snorkeling experience.
Tortuga Island is also a great place to scuba dive and offers other recreational activities which makes it a perfect place for a family or group trip. Activities include:
– just hanging on the beach in a comfortable lounger
– renting a jet ski
– riding the water banana
– scuba diving
Our Tortuga Island snorkeling excursion is usually a full day experience from 8 am to 4 pm and includes a tasty lunch on the beach under the shade of the local trees.
Combined activities are available and can be reserved ahead of time.
