During this small-group tour limited to a maximum of 10 people, paddle in your kayak along the beautiful Pacific Ocean coastline making intermittent stops to view wildlife in their natural habitat. With your bilingual (English/Spanish) naturalist guide, explore 3 of the best snorkeling spots along an active coral reef system. Hotel pickup, kayak, snorkeling equipment, snacks and lunch are included.Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time when you book.
You'll be picked up from your hotel in central Manuel Antonio around 8am or 1pm, then head to Pez Vela (Sail Fish) Marina in Quepos, where you'll begin your water-based adventure. After a quick safety briefing and instruction, you'll board your open-seat kayak and begin paddling and winding along the Manuel Antonio coastline for a total distance of about 1 mile (about 40 minutes). The pace of the kayaking adventure is determined by your group’s abilities and interests and is generally punctuated with stops, where you'll admire the abundance of wildlife in the area. You'll stop to enjoy a leisurely swim at the hidden jewel of Biesanz Bay and indulge in the delicious local snacks in a picnic area. Afterwards, take the opportunity to interact with a bilingual naturalist guide and the best snorkeling spots as you experience three small but growing, active, and astounding coral reef systems nestled very close to the shore of Biesanz Bay. Passengers will snorkel about 45 to 50 minutes in total and utilize the included snorkel equipment. Upon completing your snorkeling experiences at Biesanz, you'll board your kayak and continue paddling towards Manuel Antonio National Park. Here, you'll admire the nearby nesting islands which exotic booby birds and frigatebirds call home all year round. When your kayak and snorkeling experience comes to an end, you'll enjoy lunch in a restaurant before returning to your hotel approximately 4 hours after pickup.
