If you will have a rental car, prefer to take a bus or will already be on the east coast of Costa Rica before the tour, we can meet you at the Moin wharf where the boat tour begins (rate adjusted accordingly).

The day tour rate of $75/person includes 4-5 hours on the boat and the complete lunch with a natural fruit beverage.
During the green sea turtle season (late June - mid-Oct.) we can arrange for a bilingual guide to take you to see nesting turtles in the evening after dinner. The guided beach walk and boat transportation to the assigned beach area is $20/person for this 2 hour optional activity.
There is a $4/p conservation sticker which can be purchased in the village to contribute to the Turtle Spotter Program. By having trained local spotters find nesting turtles who radio the guides to bring people onto the beach at the appropriate time, the number of people on the beach at any one time is reduced thus reducing the disturbance to the turtles. The sticker program also supports community development projects.
