Starting at $106 per adult


If you are looking for a fun and relaxing way to take in the beautiful Manuel Antonio coast, the Ocean King Catamaran Cruise is the perfect activity for you!

The day starts off with a transfer from your local Manuel Antonio area hotel to the Quepos Pez Vela Marina where the boat is docked. This is a short drive and you will likely pick up some other travelers as well.

The Ocean King is a 100 foot long catamaran style boat that is outfitted for some serious fun in the sun! The main area has space for up to 100 people and the second deck has room for another 150 people. The boat offers two huge trampolines, two Jacuzzis, two winding water slides, an enormous bar, living room, and four bathrooms and four showers.

The cruise will take you along the gorgeous Manuel Antonio coast. You will pass by rolling green jungle covered hillsides that disappear into the sea, tropical islands and all around beautiful scenery. Eventually you will reach Playa Biesanz where the boat will stop for a break. You will be able to swim and water slide off the boat. Snorkeling gear will be provided to those that wish to do so. Manuel Antonio is not the best place to snorkel, but you may be able to see some tropical fish.

As the boat travels along, keep a lookout for marine life. During the green season you may be able to see whales or sea turtles. Dolphins are around most of the year and will often cruise along with the boat.

While you may see some wildlife, the main attraction is fun and relaxation. The Ocean King provides a Costa Rican style lunch. You will also have access to fruits, snacks, and Costa Rican brand alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

After returning to the marina you will be returned to your hotel. Including transfers, the cruise is expected to last around four hours for those staying in Manuel Antonio and longer for those staying in other locations. This is subject to change due to the nature of the tour. This relaxing tour includes transportation, drinks, lunch and snacks.

The cruise was enjoyable and it was great to see the sunset from the water. Logistics probably took longer than needed, having to drive to multiple hotels, then to Quepos to register everyone, then to the marina. I think if people were most interested in snorkeling I would recommend a different excursion. That part was short and crowded, with little chance to see anything in the water. However, we really did have a good time.


A very fun and enjoyable boat trip. My husband and I are boat people, so we loved being out in the water. The scenery was terrific, and the snacks and lunch were incredibly good. Staff on the boat were very nice. Snorkelling wasn't very good, but my grandson loved jumping off the top of the catamaran. I would recommend this tour to anyone. It was terrific value for the money.


This was so much fun, big party on the water. Staff super fun too. Cheers.


Very fun cruise! Definitely a booze cruise and a daytime hangout. The staff were really friendly and made sure we had a good time. We stopped to jump off the boat, snorkel, or go down the slides. There wasn't really a "tour" aspect of it, but I wasn't really expecting there to be.


The boat guides were perfect, the driver who picked us up seemed irritated.


Was unexpectedly fun! Totally a booze cruise, but still enjoyable for the non-drinkers. Beautiful scenery, and we lucked out because we got to see humpback whales during our cruise. The snorkeling was okay - can't see anything. But, we still enjoyed swimming in the water. The staff on the ship were all attentive and the meal provided was good.


It was fine


The views were awesome, loved seeing the dolphins!! Lunch was delic


The food and drinks were amazing we had so much fun jumping off the top into the water, snorkeling and using the water slide. This is the best way to end the trip!


The tour was fine but too short.


Lively tour. I was lucky to see dolphins on the cruise. Music is old school but fun and the drinks and food were good.


We didn't know how much we would enjoy jumping, diving, and somersaults from the top story into the water. The catamaran is so big that other boats enjoyed watching the people from our boat jumping off the top deck and sliding down the slides. The fish and meal served as part of the tour was delicious. Enjoyed the scenery, and the dolphin families riding along beside us. Also, alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic drinks are included. My daughter really enjoyed her first time snorkeling as well. This was probably our favorite tour in the Manuel Antonio region.


The cruise was great for some party time. We had great drinks made by great bartenders, and seeing some whales and jumping off the boat to swim made our day!


Great Tour.


The snorkeling was not that great but the cruise was definitely fun anyway.


Party boat,


This was probably our favorite day of our vacation. We met so many fun, interesting people. The food was excellent! Snorkeling was marginal but we did find a lot of dolphins to chase.


Getting there was a little disorganized. We had to go to their office first and then get back on the bus to go to the docks. But after we were there, it was very smooth. It's a party boat; and we had a great time. Food was great. The locations it went were very nice to see; snorkeling was great but a bit crowded as it met us with several other boats. I would have liked to see us spend a little bit more time in the snorkel stop so we could enjoy the slide and jumping off the boat a few more times. The staff was very nice, fun and accommodating.


What better way to watch the sun set on the Pacific?
