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 took a morning sail/snorkel cruise with Matteo. It was truly the highlight of our trip. We sailed to a private beach and were led in a snorkeling expedition by Bismarck, his crew. They prepared a delicious lunch which we all enjoyed very much. The boat was beautiful and the drinks free flowing and the music set the mood. Highly highly recommended!!! Don’t miss!

The best thing about the Manta Ray is they are very flexible and you can take a private tour if you don't want to join with the daily crowd. I was lucky enough to be invited to join some friends for a day tour and it was an absolutely amazing day.

You are met on the beach and take a small boat out to the Manta Ray and given a full briefing. Then you set sail with the stunning view of the Costa Rican coastline. Matteo and his crew Luca and Jeffry were fantastic! They were always there on hand with drinks but also information about all the beaches you can see or anything in the waters we are sailing by. They really make it a relaxing and enjoyable trip.

Luca guided us on an informative snorkel tour at a beautiful beach location (expertly chosen by the captain as we were in the windy season) where we got to see some marine life (including an octopus and sea cucumbers :) ) but also you have the option to use the stand up paddle board or kayak as well and take time for a swim.

Snacks, lunch and drinks were perfect with a large range of drinks to suit everyone, try the Manta Ray cocktail!

Sailing back through the sunset was breathtaking and the music selection hit the right tunes the whole day.

We were thoroughly taken care of and everyone enjoyed the trip so much we didn't want to get off the boat!

Thanks Manta Ray, hope to come back again soon!

Super awesome day 11 - 6 with Manta Ray......Did not want loud party boat with drunk people. Just what we wanted for our family of 9. One 84yr old and a person with some physical disability but the crew was attentive and able to meet all of our needs. Food was awesome, service was great, sail was beautiful and we will remember it always! Well worth the money!
