Check out this YouTube video by Dan What’s Inside Family which features our Ocean Kayak tour with artisanal fishing activity!
Our recreational Ocean Kayak tour is now done in Playa Karolas, a beach with a private entrance restricted by The Preserve at Los Altos Resort in Manuel Antonio. You will be able to ocean kayak away from the crowds unlike any other Ocean Kayak tour in Manuel Antonio due to where we have the tour and you can enjoy the wildlife without disturbing them. We have brand new Malibu 9.5 Kayaks made by Ocean Kayak. Our guides are certified by the ICT, the Costarican Institute of Tourism which means they are professionally trained according to the rules of the government of Costa Rica. Snorkeling is included at no extra cost! This tour is very close to the best snorkeling spot in Manuel Antonio which is in Playa Biesanz so no heavy kayaking will be required to get there. This is a recreational tour for adults, children, and seniors. There is also a Paddle Boarding option for no extra cost for families that have some people that want to Kayak and others that want to Paddle Board.
All tours include round-trip transportation in a comfortable, new, double air conditioned 12-people-van (driven by the owner, Dante), from/to the guest’s hotel or private residence in Manuel Antonio or Quepos, refreshments (water, coconut water, and fresh fruit), paddle board, snorkeling equipment, life jackets, rash guard, and an experienced and safe, bilingual (English and Spanish) instructor. A 20-minute instruction and security talk is given by the instructor to the guest, prior to entering the water.
We offer paddle boards with this tour
Example: If there is a family where the mom and son want to do kayaking while the daughter and father want to paddle board, we will offer BOTH options in this tour for the standard price of one! ($49/person)

We wanted to learn how to surf and have some fun while in Manuel Antonio. Dante’s was recommended by the hotel and scored high on TripAdvisor so it was an easy choice. They didn’t let us down and gave us a fantastic morning with pretty big waves and super clear instructions. The crew helped us all the way out there in the waves and didn’t settle until the teenagers surfed standing up. As for the 6-year old he was having fun bodysurfing on a boogie board. Next time we’re around we’ll make sure to stop by and develop those skills further. Pura vida
