We had such a wonderful experience with Bahia Aventuras -- first going to Caño Island and then to Corcovado. The guides were very professional, very safety-first oriented, and incredibly knowledgeable. In fact, one of our guides went out of his way to take my husband and I on a personalized hike across Corcovado, even though it was meant to be... More

We did the 'snorkeling at Cano Island tour'. This tour was amazingly beautiful. During the snorkeling we saw turtles, sharks and amazingly colorful fish. We had lunch at a very idyllic remote Island. The group was not too big and the diving instructors were very willing to help with the less experienced snorkelers.

The snorkeling tour was from 1:30pm - 3:30pm and we were taken to 3 spots to snorkel. The last spot was to murky with sediment so we didn't get to snorkel there but the first 2 spots were great. We saw all kinds of fish and even saw some pretty large sea shells. Our guide, Risto, was great and he... More

Really fun day, small boat trip about 10 on board. Saw dolphins and turtles on the way to Cano Island. With snorkels and flippers provided we jumped into warm waters with white tip shark, turtles, colourful fish, swimming through a shoal of silvery jack fish. Very caring crew, who gave us total support whilst in the water and checking to... More

Great family day trip. The guides are excellent and knowledgeable about Costa Rica as well as the fish you will see while snorkeling. Everything is done perfectly including the picnic lunch on your own private beach. We visited 3 snorkel spots, saw fish, eel, manta rays and a shark. The lunch stop was so relaxing and the beach was perfect... More

I had made a reservation then didn't even get a reply back until I emailed them to ask a question. We left at 4 am that morning and by the time we made it to utiva we couldn't even find the place. To make matters worse the GPS coordinates didn't even work. I emailed them telling them what happened and... More

We booked this excursion at the recommendation of staff at our hotel. It was the best day of our trip to Costa Rica. I was a little leery of the 1 1/2 hour boat ride, each way, but it was all part of the adventure. Our guide Reymer, and all of staff were great. We did two hikes, and had... More

We booked two tours with Bahia Aventuras, the Cano Island snorkling trip and the Corcovado hiking excursion. We had a fantastic time on both and loved our tour guides. We saw a ton of wildlife during both excursions and learned so much along the way. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgable, we really can't say enough great... More

5-star snorkeling and customer service. We 3 joined about 20 on 2 boats for the 1+ hour trip to the Cano Island Marine Preserve. 3 guides showed us a plethora of fish species plus rays, sharks, and turtles in 3 snorkeling sessions. Then a ride to semi-private Violines Island for lunch, before returning to Uvita--I can only give Violines and... More
