Ocean Kayaking (Manuel Antonio)

Do you want to experience the Pacific Ocean like never before on your trip to Costa Rica? Ocean Kayaking in Manuel Antonio is the perfect way to spend your day.

On this 4-hour excursion, you’ll not only enjoy the invigorating activity of paddling through the crystal-clear waters of the ocean, but you’ll also get the chance to visit Costa Rica’s captivating aquatic wildlife in its natural habitat. Your kayak trip includes a stop in Biesanz Bay, a spectacular secluded cove that is the perfect spot for snorkeling among the native fish and sea turtles.

Fun for All Ages

Fun for All Ages

Ocean Kayaking is the perfect outing for your family. Because it’s easier than kayaking on a flowing river, paddlers ages 8 and up are all welcome. No previous experience is required to take part in the beautiful trip into the Pacific. With top-of-the-line kayaks that seat either one or two people, you can team up or fly solo on this diverting excursion.

Will this be your first time kayaking? Never fear - each group taking part in Ocean Kayaking will be accompanied by an experienced guide who will provide a safety orientation and tips for the ultimate on-the-sea experience. Your guide will lead you to the best spots to take in the natural wonder of Costa Rica from the sea.

Take In Stunning Landscapes

Along with your sunscreen and your towel, be sure to bring along a waterproof camera when your shuttle picks you up from your Manuel Antonio hotel for a half-day of kayaking. You’ll want to capture plenty of memories of the incredible, varied geography you pass by during the trip.

On the way to Biesanz Bay, you’ll paddle past tiny islands that are the nesting homes of many marine birds that call Costa Rica home. Gaze upon the majestic mountains of the Pacific’s Ring of Fire from the base where these towering landforms meet the ocean, impressive peaks created from volcanic and seismic activity.

Take In Stunning Landscapes

On your journey, you'll glide tranquilly past pinnacles of stone and cliffs covered with the flora of the rainforest. Breathe in the fresh ocean air while you create lifelong visual memories of the stunning natural formations around you.

As you kayak to the bay, wave hello to passing pelicans and turtles. Keep an eye out for a shimmering flying fish leaping out of the water's surface!

When you arrive at the private beach of Biesanz Bay, you'll take a break from paddling. Spend a minute resting your arms and soaking in the glorious sunshine, but don't leave without grabbing a snorkel mask and exploring the underwater ecosystem up close! Dive into a world of fantastic color as you visit the home of parrotfish, angelfish, starfish, and more along the bay's coastline.
