From the moment we arrived at Coco beach we couldn’t have been in safer hands. Everything was explained in detail but clearly. Staff were courteous, attentive and helpful at all times particularly when embarking and disembarking the dingy and the catamaran. The lunch prepared on board was delicious and looked good too. I am a fussy eater so this is a big compliment. Drinks were plentiful and rubbish and dirty cups were removed and tidied away constantly. When the boat arrived at the cove where we could get off and swim, snorkel or be transported in the dingy to island, there was a range of flippers, snorkels and noodles to use. I found the noodles very helpful for buoyancy in the warm pacific water. Lunch was served shortly after the swim and we were certainly hungry after our swim. After lunch we set sale to music and the sails were released to take advantage of the wind, while we watched the sun go down. The sunset was a little disappointing as it was very overcast . However, this didn’t detract from its beauty and the whole experience. This trip is also good for seeing wildlife such as whales beaching, seabirds and dolphins. We were very lucky to have experienced all of these.

I can't compliment this crew enough. We had a group of 24 which was more than difficult to organize. To top it off I had booked the wrong day. Cinthia was amazing at helping last minute transportation and getting all these people to the catamaran, and nobody knew the difference. This was our wedding present to the couple and their families and to say it was the favorite part of the trip for all is an understatement. I don't know how to express how much fun we had or the memories we made with the crew, the food, the drinks, everything was SPOT ON! Thank you for all of your help. We were going to do private, but couldn't get people to commit and I'm so glad we didn't. You never know who you are going to meet on adventures, and we made great friends on this trip and the CREW, was so amazing to all of us. Thank you again and again. Top notch!

A large group of couples went on an afternoon snorkel cruise with a return at sunset. We had a fantastic time. We have done several cruises before with other boats that were good, but nothing to compare to this crew. The entire staff spent all their time serving food and drinks and accompanying us snorkeling to make sure everyone was safe and happy. We were all impressed with the outstanding service from the crew.
I would recommend this outfit to anyone.
Great job Marlin Del Rey

We picked the day we went specifically because it was windy and we wanted to go for a sail. The fact that in addition to sailing & snorkeling they advertise fishing from the boat, paddle boards, going to a secluded beach, plus an open bar and nice food was what got us to book with this operator. But once we pulled anchor there was no signs of sails going up even though we had perfect conditions so I asked a crew member and he said the captain never puts up sails going out, just coming back. Why? He shrugged his shoulders and just said “that’s the way the captain does it”. So we motored over to a beach with a half dozen other boats already anchored there (so much for secluded) and jumped in to go snorkeling with no instructions as to were to go or what to look for. We headed over to the area that looked most likely to have coral and found a 95%dead reef. So disappointing. We returned to the boat after awhile and were served a very nice ‘lunch’, and after a bit headed back to coco were we started from. After a few extremely watered down drinks we switched to beer and wine and kept waiting for the captain to turn off the engines and sail. Eventually the wind picked up and they did turn off the engines for about 10 minutes but it was such a shame to have wasted all that beautiful air earlier in the day. On another note, they did put out a fishing line but didn’t bother to go through a school of working tuna not too far from the boat. Again another missed opportunity. You would think with Covid and the limited number of guests they have these days that they would be offering the best experience ever, not the run of the mill trip they gave us.

My daughter,granddaughter and I took the sunset snorkeling tour on Dec. 29,2019 on the Tres Marlin.The crew was absolutely wonderful, especially helpful to me as I use a cane and have problems getting around on land let alone boarding a tender in the surf! They were all very kind and helpful, bringing me my lunch,making sure I had good seating,all with great attitudes and cheerful smiles. The tour itself was amazing, my daughter thought the snorkeling was well organized with good instruction and easy entry.My granddaughter loved filming the sea turtles and dolphins.Sunset was spectacular! Since I am 84 I wasn't sure I would be able to do this tour, so happy I was! Certainly recommend Marlin del Rey and their crew.

I have been on the Marlin del Rey many times and always had a fantastic time. This trip was even more amazing. It was all about the crew. There was a gentleman that was going on the trip from Coco beach and he had MS. The crew helped him on the small boat which was bouncing like crazy with the waves. Then when we arrived at the catamaran a crew-mate lifted him on his back and carried him onto the boat. WOW! It was a super windy day and we still had an amazing time. Saw dolphins on the way back to Coco :) So I applaud the efforts made by the crew to make sure everyone had a good time. I would highly recommend them!

A Costa Rican friend recommended this tour to me so we booked. It honestly could not have been better. I was a bit concerned about the max number of guests in a group, but it did not feel crowded or "cattle callish" at all. What struck us most was the service. All staff were constantly asking if I needed a drink or water, or I needed anything at all. The food was good. The snorkeling was fun and the sunset was amazing (I would definitely pay more and go on the afternoon option.) There were all ages on the boat and it was fine for kids. My husband and I brought 4 young adults (19-21) and they loved it. Can't say enough good things about this tour.

This was a great experience. We travelled north we saw a whale breach and then he just showed off for a while. Went to a lovely cove to swim and/or snorkel. A great luncheon on the way back of bbq chicken, rice, Pico de gallo, different kinds of chips, fresh fruit and chocolate chip cookies. Drinks are free and there is lots of staff to deliver them if you haven’t got your sea legs yet. The staff make the whole trip super enjoyable and a do not miss adventure. Big shout out to Jeffry who was awesome.

We went on the sunset/snorkeling cruise and when we were heading back from snorkeling our captain heard of some whales in the area and took us to see them. There were approx three adults and two babies. They performed for all the boats that were there. It was so awesome!! The crew on the boat were very good. They looked after everyone and made the trip so comforting.

Overall, it was an okay experience. This was more of a party boat, the tour was so packed we couldn't actually find a place to sit down on the boat since we were the last to board (almost 40-50 people on the boat). The service from the crew was excellent, but being around other drunken/rude tourists really isn't our scene. Overall, the snorkeling was okay. The water was murky, and swimming around 15 other thrashing snorkelers was more than enough for us. The crew was doing their best to make sure everyone had a drink in hand and plenty of food. The captain did his best to follow a group of dolphins on the way back. Beyond that, nothing spectacular. They don't actually raise the sails, despite more than adequate winds. I'd suggest the other smaller sail boat tours if you are not wanting the party experience.
