Turtle Island is located in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica. Throughout the gulf it is the only island that has white sand and turquoise water.
We leave from Montezuma at 9:15am and the tour includes lunch, drinks and snorkeling equipment. The journey to the island takes 50 minutes along the coast with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the peninsula.
During the boat ride you may see dolphins, manta rays and turtles. From July to October we often see humpback and pilot whales.
Close to Turtle Island you have the opportunity to discover the underwater world around different snorkeling spots. The volcanic rock reef is surrounded by crystal clear water and is home to different types of corals. If you are lucky, you may discover species like angel fish, marlin, blowfish, and many other marine beauties that will make this day an unforgettable experience.
After snorkeling our captain takes you to the island to enjoy some fresh fruit and drinks while lunch is being prepared.
For lunch our cook will serve fresh barbecued fish or chicken with the dressing of the house, served with rice, green salad, vegetables and bread. We also have a vegetarian option.
We have a ranch properly equipped with tables, a gas cooking grid to prepare the food. We are located in the best area of Tortuga Island, on the side of the channel next to the mountain.
After lunch you can enjoy a walk along the sandy beach of the island, rent kayaks, a banana boat, jet skis, or just take a nap under the palm trees.
The departure of the boat back to Montezuma is around 3pm.
