About The Boats
Your safety and well-being are our principal concern and you can be sure that we apply the highest level of safety standards on board the boats. We have three dedicated vessels operating on this ferry route, with the biggest accommodating up to 25 passengers comfortably. We also maintain our boats to meet the high marine safety standards in place. Each of the boats has a shade canopy covering approximately 70% of the passenger area, so you can choose to sit wherever you prefer.
Time to Take Off
Propulsion on the biggest of the boats is by way of powerful twin outboard engines delivering an awesome 400HP. Sit back and relax as our skilled crew head in the direction of the Nicoya Peninsula, or guide you back to Jaco on the return leg. They will provide a running commentary on anything interesting along the way, including where best to spot great marine wildlife. The water boat taxis make an impressive sight as they whisk you smoothly across the sheltered waters and power you effortlessly to the other side.
Booking in Advance Only
Strict regulations require us to keep an accurate passenger manifesto for safety purposes. This means we can only take bookings in advance of travel. Please also note our basic terms and conditions of carriage – this you will find in the Transportation Details section above.
