Tortuga Island Catamaran Tour – From Jaco

From: $131.00 +VAT


Tortuga Island Catamaran Tour with Costa Cat

Tortuga Island is located off the coast between Jaco/Puntarenas and the Nicoya Peninsula. It is a small island with a beautiful white-sand beach and is one of the better places to snorkel in Costa Rica.

Tours to the island can be done out of the nearby Playa Herradura (about 15 minutes from Jaco) on a large 54-foot catamaran, the Costa Cat.

At the Marina, you’ll be served a light breakfast on the boat before heading out to the island. The ride out to the island takes about 45 minutes and is very scenic, passing other small islands along the way. 

Once you arrive, you can snorkel, take banana boat rides (included), hike the short trail, or just relax under the palm trees from the comfort of a beach chair. Watersport rentals such as jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks, and paddle boats are also available.

The interior of the boat (sitting area) has A/C.

Cost: $131 per person adults, $108 per person children ages 4-13. Rates plus 13% tax. Children 3 and under are free.

Offered: Pickup time around 7:00 a.m. If meeting at the Marina, check in time is at 7:15 a.m. Boat leaves at 7:45 a.m.

Duration: You will return to Los Suenos Marina around 3:45 p.m.

Includes: Round-trip transportation from Jaco, Herradura, and Los Suenos, light breakfast aboard (coffee, juice, water, muffin, and fruit), rum punch and margaritas, soft drinks, water, and sodas, lunch on the island (rosemary grilled chicken, sautéed potatoes, yellow rice, and 2 kinds of salad), 3 activities on the beach (snorkel tour, banana boat tour, and eco hike), and use of chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys for kids on the island.
