Part of what makes Costa Rica the world's premier destination for ecotourism is its extensive coastlines. Explore the waters off Guanacaste aboard the Blue Dolphin, a 40-foot catamaran that slices through the surf and offers a fully stocked bar, paddle boards and kayaks for your enjoyment. Breathe in the salt spray and keep a lookout for dolphins, turtles, whales, and spectacular coastal views.

Simple adjustments could make this much better
, Aug 2021
Trip would have been more enjoyable if they could limit the passengers to 30-35 , we had over 50+ people which made it difficult to move around. Several food items ran out before everyone could eat (chips, tortillas..etc). Crew was attentive and helpful. I would suggest separating the booze cruise crowd with the young families to make sure it is enjoyable for both groups.

Hi Rachel, Thanks for the feedback. I am not sure that you have the correct boat. Blue Dolphin has a maximum capacity of 35 passengers and we usually limit it 30 passengers. We do have families and revelers as we like to have a lively boat. Regardless we will review our food quantity calculations, thank you.
Beautiful Sunset

Amazing experience. Francisco and Fermin and the rest of the crew made our experience memorable. The views were to die for.
Amazing Sailing Experience!!

We were picked up and dropped off on the resort beach so it was great from the very start! (No driving)Tour guides took great care of us constantly keeping our drinks full. The beach, caves and sunset were amazing! We even saw some dolphins. It was an awesome experience and we highly recommend!
Great time had by all

Great time was had by all. The boat was incredible, the drinks where plentiful and we made friends that we ended up hanging out with the rest of the trip. Crew was also amazing.

Thank you joining us. We are so happy you enjoyed your day with us. One of the reasons we love Blue Dolphin is because of the communal layout, as one my favorite things about traveling is meeting new people. We hope your new friendship and memories of Blue Dolphin last for many years.
Disappointed Experience
, Jun 2021
We booked and paid for the tour using their inline service. We were told that it was overbooked after of course they took our payment. Now it will take 5-10 days to get our money refunded. Happened to our friends as well. We both had paid confirmation tickets but they booked someone that came into their office before checking Ygritte online confirmation. Sorry so Unprofessional. Will Never book this tour and you shouldn’t either!!!!

Hi, thank you for your time for your feedback. We were very disappointed we could not accomodate you on your requested date. We have been limiting the number of people on the boat due to Covid. We contacted you and offered you alternative dates but they did not suite your schedule. We are sorry you are so disappointed. After speaking with you, we immediately advised Trip Advior to issue the refund. Unfortunately we cannot controll Trip Advisor´s refund policy, had you booked directly with us your refund would have been within 24 hours.
