The half day outrigger canoe tour is unique to Costa Rica. We pioneered the use of outrigger canoes as a great way to take groups on the ocean way back in 1999. Our outriggers (Hawaiian style canoes) are a great equalizers of abilities. Your steersperson in the canoe takes care of controlling your direction and everyone gets to the most beautiful beaches around at the same time. The canoes are more efficient than kayaks and paddling is a little easier. You will glide past spectacular cliffs filled with frigate birds and pelicans and your guide will point out interesting landmarks. We snorkel (when conditions permit) from the beach so we have lots of options if someone in the group is into monkey and bird watching or beachcombing.
