Sun, sea and fun on a 100-foot passenger catamaran cruise in the Gulf of Nicoya to Isla Tortuga. Depart San Jose early in the morning and travel via air-conditioned bus to Puntarenas (about 2-1/2 hours). Continental breakfast will be served on the bus, and coffee is served upon arrival at the dock.

Designed from passengers' suggestions over the years, the Manta Raya features an underwater viewing window, fresh water shower area and full bar. The spacious main salon opens to an expansive deck area which includes two jacuzzi pools, allowing passengers to cruise in luxury and comfort. Manta Raya's aqua-jet propulsion allows for shorter travel time and more time at the beach or snorkeling. A ramp is attached to the Manta Raya on arrival to the Island, allowing you to disembark directly onto the beach.

The cruise passes seven different islands, including the famous Isla San Lucas, location of a former prison, before passengers disembark on Isla Tortuga. Appetizers are served prior to lunch and a full bar is set up on the island. A freshly prepared, hot lunch is served mid-day with chilled white wine, followed by dessert and coffee. You will board the Manta Raya mid-afternoon for the return cruise to Puntarenas. On arrival at the dock, coffee is served prior to boarding the bus for San Jose.

Includes: Round-trip transportation San José-Puntarenas-San José, continental breakfast served on the bus, fresh fruit and soft drinks on the Manta Raya, lunch with white wine served on the Island, services of cruise director, taxes and entrance fees in effect at the time of booking.
