Are you ready to go kayaking along the beautiful Manuel Antonio coastline? If so, this is a great tour for you! The day starts off when you are picked up from your Manuel Antonio area hotel and brought to the Pez Vela Marina at Quepos. When you arrive, your guide will provide you with a life jacket, double-seat kayak (singles available on request), and then a quick safety and operational lesson for the kayak.
As you paddle along the coast, you will pass by the beautiful Manuel Antonio coastline. An emerald jungle covers the hillside that rolls down to the coast. And out in the Pacific Ocean, small tropical islands teem with nesting birds. Truly a gorgeous sight to see!
Eventually you will reach Playa Biesanz, a hidden beach that few tourists get to see. There, white sand meets the green jungle frequented by plenty of wildlife. While on shore you can take the opportunity to walk the beach, go for a swim, and use the snorkel gear that will be provided. Manuel Antonio is not known for great snorkeling, but you will likely see some colorful fish and during certain times of the year, dolphins, turtles, and whales have been sighted.
After some fun in the sun at the beach, a group consensus will be taken on whether to kayak further to observe nesting coastal birds or return to the marina. When you do return to shore, a hearty lunch will be provided to replenish your energy.
It must be noted that this activity is performed on the ocean so there can be strong waves and currents at times. Experience with above seat ocean kayaks is preferred. Participants should also be reasonably physically fit. Children 7 years old and up may go but might be placed in a double kayak with an adult.
After the tour, you'll be returned to your hotel. Including round trip transportation, the tour is expected to last around 4 hours, though this is subject to change. In addition to transportation, this trip includes guide, kayak, snorkeling gear, and lunch.
