Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: A full-service yacht charter and sailing tour, we cater to small groups and families to provide an intimate and all-inclusive experience of Guanacaste's coastline. Seeing wildlife can never be guaranteed, but we often see dolphins, sea turtles, jumping manta rays and depending on season and luck, humpback whales! Depending on weather, we select the best spot for snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and exploring secluded coastline. An experienced guide will lead you through the waters to discover species of fish, sting rays, starfish and various marine life. While you're in the water, we're in the kitchen! We serve a delicious meal complete with snacks, fresh cut fruit, Matteo's fresh and famous guacamole, and refreshing drinks including water, juices, sodas, beer, wine, local spirits and Prosecco.

We went yesterday on a sailing/snorkeling trip with Manta Ray Sailing. We were picked up and dropped back to our vacation rental in Potrero, which was very nice and convenient. We had an amazing time: we got to hold a live blow fish, tiny octopus and two star fishes.
Drinks were plentiful. For lunch we were served cheeseburgers, chips with guacamole, salsa and fruit, which was great. As unexpected wonderful surprise we were offered wonderful Italian espresso and cookies.
We finished off the evening with dancing on the deck... while sailing back and enjoying amazing sunset views. it was as good as it gets!
Many thanks to captain Mateo, Kender and Carola!

Talk about timing, as we are coming back into port, after a great sail and snorket, the sun begins to set and the perfect music accompanies the sunset. It was wonderful! Food was good, and the beverages were flowing. We had a great time as did the entire boat. We weren't overcrowded like some of the other sailboats we saw, easy to move around and everyone passengers and crew interacted. A fun afternoon/evening.

Matteo and his crew were amazing. The best snorkeling experience I have ever had. The crew was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food and drinks were tasty and fresh, the boat was clean with plenty of room for all.
The highlight of the trip was Kender ....wow. While giving the snorkeling tour, Kender would dive down in the deep ends of the ocean to bring us sea creatures! Was really awesome to touch a blow fish, octopus, starfish, a sea cucumber...and many other creatures!
If you are looking for a great snorkeling experience or just a nice sail on the Pacific, this is the perfect attraction. You can't go wrong with Matteo and his crew.

What a great experience. My family and I spent the day on the Manta Ray sailing with Mateo. The views were amazing. The snorkeling was fantastic. The crew was knowledgable, warm and helpful. I would highly recommend as a "must-do"!
