Dolphin Watching and Snorkeling

Book This Trip

We offer dolphin watching + snorkeling excursions from either Puerto Viejo or Cahuita. Choose the tour which works best for you.


Take a beautiful ride along the coast of the Cahuita National Park to spot Atlantic and Bottlenose dolphins. After seeing the dolphins, we cruise back to the reefs of the Cahuita National Park for snorkelling! After the snorkelling we head back to the Cahuita head where we will stop to enjoy a snack of fresh fruits and something to drink. From the head there is the option to walk back through the National Park (unguided) or take a ride back by boat.

Should you wish to combine this tour with a guided hike through the National Park or add a couple of hours fishing to it, please let us know and we will advise price.

A minimum of 2 passengers are required to operate this tour; if you are a solo passenger, please contact us and we will try to book you on a day with other passengers.
