Going to the ocean in Manuel Antonio, is a must. And your Iguana Catamaran Tour proves it right. As when you are on board of the boat looking at the rainforest touching the waves, the amazing landscape of hotels and houses blended in the bright green shades will stay in your mind forever.
The colors are deep, the breeze cools off the heat of the tropical sun and the dolphin’s sightings cheer the faces of all passengers.
Your Iguana Catamaran Tour will begin at the marina in Quepos. where your crew will be waiting for you. You will meet your guide and start slowly gliding into a breathtaking trip.
The catamaran is very comfortable, and quite big, so you will have plenty of space to see to all directions, while enjoying fresh fruit and the music onboard.
You will get closer to the small isles in front of the National Park and see several species of marine birds. Chances to see bottle nosed and spotted dolphins are quite high and in season the sightings of Humpback Whales are very usual.
Northern humpback whales normally arrive in Costa Rica in December and can be spotted until around April, while southern humpback whales season goes from July and to early November. The peak season is without a doubt, August to October.
If you are traveling in the morning hours, you will go into a popular diving spot in the area and delight in a snorkeling session. While in the water, you may see several species of small fish, starfish, octopus and sometimes, when lucky, you may even watch a sea turtle feeding around.
If you are taking the tour in the afternoon prepare for a breathtaking sunset.
As we all know, dusk in the tropics is fast, however, when you are sailing, in the soft movement of the waves, time seems to stop as the sky turns pink and orange, sometimes with a faint green or a radical purple glowing behind.
It is a unique and magical experience and will keep a place in your heart forever.
