What You Can Expect:

Daily Half Day Trip

Our Schooner Sailing Ship sets sail daily from Tamarindo beach Costa Rica, weather permitting. Daily tours meet at El Pescador Restaurant at 12:45 pm on the beach.

As we set sail you will enjoy snacks, and Open Bar throughout the trip. We head for Playa Huevo, and upon arrival, you can go snorkeling, swimming, go to the beach, or just laze around on the boat. Antares is 80 foot long, so she has a lot of space, and we have many bean bags on deck for very comfortable seating!! We then set sail for Playa Tamarindo, enjoying the amazing sunset and arrive back on the beach just before dark.

Witch's Rock Overnight Tour

Witch´s Rock surf trips are amazing for surfers to enjoy in comfort. No need to spend hours bouncing about in a powerboat and getting sunburned. Antares Sailing Adventures offer overnight trips, including drinks and food.

Antares is a 1947 Sparkman and Stephans design, so she is a great sailing vessel. Antares is also available for private trips, Witch´s Rock surf trips, parties, etc

Full Moon Tour

Once a month we enjoy a full moon party aboard the famous Antares Sailing Adventure Ship. We head out to catch an amazing sunset sail at 5 PM, and then come back to the anchor. Antares offers an Open Bar and Snacks. Once back on anchor we serve a delicious supper. Enjoy live music until 10 PM.
