  • About the tour

    As Manuel Antonio specialists, we encourage you to enjoy one of Costa Rica's most beautiful coastlines by kayak. Whether you are an individual, a group or an adventurous family, this challenging but rewarding ocean paddling adventure is just what you are looking for. The adventure begins near the Pez Vela marina in Quepos, in Naomi Park and winds along the Quepos coastline to Punta Quepos.

    Enjoy a rare gem in Manuel Antonio, a hidden treasure called Biezans Beach and Bay, for a refreshing swim, delicious fruit and hydrating drink. Let your bilingual guide take you to the best snorkeling spots as you search the volcanic reef for small mollusks, fish, octopus and other, but actively amazing tenants of the reef located very close to Biezans Bay. After an unforgettable experience in Biezans, continue paddling and admire the nearby nesting islands where exotic Bobees and frigate birds call you home all year round. And finally, end your adventure with a hot lunch with typical Costa Rican flavor at a local spot in Quepos before returning to your residence in Costa Rica. Overall, this kayaking adventure is fun for just about everyone. It's a great way to experience Costa Rica's exotic coastline in a way that only Manuel Antonio can be shown.
