Overview

Hop on board this well-reviewed combo tour and experience ocean exploring at its finest. The Combo Tour- Snorkeling, Caves and Whale Watching tour is a nature enthusiast’s dream and an animal lover’s paradise. You’ll travel as a group to visit a number of different areas in search of humpback whales, bottle nosed dolphins and schools of colorful tropical fish. You will also have an opportunity to snorkel in two famous spots, one of which is a natural underwater cave.

There is nothing more amazing than watching a 40 ton Humpback whale show off its beauty with a jump in the air followed by a massive tail splash. This is what thousands of people have been witnessing in the Osa Peninsula area for many years. In fact, this area is considered to be one of the best places for whale and dolphin watching in the world. On this combo tour, depending on the season you’ll be in search of Humpback whales, Bottle Nosed dolphins, Spotted dolphins, sea turtles, bi-color parrot fish and more. Humpback whales visit Costa Rica between mid-July to late October and again in mid-December through late February.

The tour starts off from Uvita beach, where you will meet your friendly and knowledgeable guides and captain. As safety is their number one priority, they will bring on board lifejackets for everyone, lots of water, and go over on board safety rules.

Throughout your trip, you will stop at a few different landmarks to go whale watching and snorkeling, such as the Whale’s Tail, Ballena Island, Tres Hermanas Islets and Ventana Sea Caves. Your captain will choose the best spot for snorkeling depending on that day and you will have the opportunity to take advantage of the high-quality and clean snorkeling gear as you jump into the glimmering ocean waters to explore the colorful underwater world. Your guide and captain will tell you interesting facts about the surrounding vegetation and wildlife you may see.

You will also get to visit the Ventana Caves, a rock formation of over 200 caves created naturally through the tectonic movements of the earth created throughout thousands of years.

During your trip your guide will crack open the cooler and provide fresh tropical fruit, as well as water and beverages while you can relax and enjoy the sunshine and beautiful surroundings in paradise. Included on this half-day tour is bottled water, fresh fruit, guide, boat, snorkeling gear. Transportation can take up to an hour each way depending on lodging location. Please note that snorkeling is only available during the dry months due to visibility (Late November through June).

We only saw 2 whales from far away and it was not possible to snorkel because of low visibility. I also thought it included more caves. PS we were aware that we would probably not do snorkelling given that it is the rainy season.

Absolutely fantastic, the guide was excellent. Friendly and helpful. The Marina was beautiful.

Poor weather meant we were a bit rain battered by the time we returned. Saw whales, though and the snorkelling was fun.

The tour was great. We were able to see the mom and baby humpback whale! The guide showed us other sights and various birds. Unfortunately the water wasn't clear so we were unable to go snorkeling (which we knew was a possibility) but we were able to jump off the boat and go swimming. The guide had a great sense of humor.
Just a note that you get on and off the boat from the shore. The guides had waterproof bags to put cameras and phones in so they didn't get wet in the waves. Just be aware that you will likely get wet getting on and off of the boat. We didn't know this ahead of time but had brought a change of clothes with us so it wasn't a big deal.

Once again love this tour. Great tour guide. Snacks and education
The transfer to Uvita was great as well. I didn't see a spot for this, but I wanted you all to know they did a great job as well.
