    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Bill Beard's Costa Rica, 331 Calle 472, Provincia de Alajuela, La Fortuna, Bosque del Mar All Suite Beach Resort, Playa Hermosa Costa Rica

    Ground transportation is provided from most hotels in Playa Hermosa, Playas del Coco, Playa Ocotal, Playa Conchal, Playa Flamingo and Playa Tamarindo areas. You will be picked up approximately 30-45 minutes prior to the 1:30 pm departure time.

    Board small dinghy that will take to you the larger catamaran vessel.  Set sail on and glide along the pacific coast watching for whales, dolphins, turtles, leaping rays and flying fish. A line is cast off the stern for you to try your hand at fishing as you cruise along. Stop at a secluded bay and begin your snorkel adventure as the crew prepares a light meal and delicious snacks.

    Later, the crew will pull anchor and raise the sails so you can motor slowly across the bay. The crew will anchor once again, so you can watch the spectacular pacific sunset as the sky explodes into a multitude of colors. Tour ends as the sun sinks below the horizon. Open bar is included for duration of tour.
