About this experience

This activity is by ZUMA TOURS


We will start the day by taking you on a 45 minutes boat ride along the coast with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean on the right and the beautiful landscape of the NICOYA PENINSULA on the left. During the boat ride, most of the time, you will be able to see cheerfully dolphins, jumping manta rays, primitive turtles, or if you are lucky you can even enjoy watching humpback & pilot whales.

Once we get to the paradisiacal TORTUGA ISLAND we will anchor our boat next to the best points for SNORKELING and Scuba Diving. The volcanic rock reef is surrounded by crystalline waters and home of Angelfish, Porcupinefish, Morays, Needlefish, Spotted Eagle Rays, and many more tropical beauties that will make it for you an extraordinary snorkel experience.

After the amazing snorkeling experience, our captain will take you to the wonderful white sand beach of Tortuga Island where drinks and fruits will be waiting for while the lunch is ready. For lunch, our cook serves fresh BBQ fish (tuna fillet now) or chicken, sauteed vegetables with delicious grilled potatoes.

After lunch, the afternoon will be yours to enjoy. You can go for a hike, a swim, rent a kayak, a banana boat, take a little “siesta”, or just chill at the beach. And then as the day comes to an end, we will get back on the boat for a beautiful ride back to Montezuma town.

Scuba Diving: as soon we arrive on the Island the diving club boat will come to pick you up, for the one immersion we advise due the tour time. The visibility average is between 2 and 7 meters. What have on this waters is nice volcanic rock formations, a big school of fish, rays, morays, white tip sharks. We provide all the scuba equipment, and of course a Dive Master or an Instructor as a guide,  we just need to know your wetsuit size.

If you are not certificated you can join us on our diving tour, doing a discovery, which is the beginning of diving, as soon we get to the island you will take another boat for that. Starting with exercises on calm water on the beach no deeper than 2 meters, to get used to the equipment, and after a professional dive no deeper than 7 meters, always with a Dive Master or the instructor.
