5/5 experience, we enjoyed beautiful weather, some nice drinks and lunch, as well as stunning views of the Papagayo beaches - unforgettable experience :) There was enough time at the stop to swim around, snorkel and use the available kayaks. Also, the pickup was very fast and on point - we didn't have to wait at all and were brought back just as swiftly. Fully recommended.

I had a fantastic time. It was a great introduction to diving and Connor was brilliant - instructive, patient, funny and educating. The whole experience was great- I had fab communication prior to the dive and it all felt very personable.

Great Extreme boat, saw dussins of dolphines, friendly crew. Well executed logistics (pick up from hotel and back), topped it ofd with some sparkling & tasty cake!

Pick up from hotel really efficient. Beautiful boat. Staff were good fun and looked after us superbly. Nice amount of time at sea and plenty of nibbles and drinks.

This was a perfect experience from pick-up to drop-off. The jet-ski ride was exciting, exhilarating, amazing! I loved it, and so did my 14-year-old son.
