What Makes Manta Raya Catamaran Cruises Unique?

Manta Raya leaves from the pacific port of Puntarenas and this gives our passengers an opportunity to see first hand the hustle and bustle of a busy fishing port city, the oldest in Costa Rica.  Puntarenas is also where international cruise ships dock for the day.

Manta Raya is 71 feet long and 32 feet wide and comes equipped with two giant hammocks stretched between twin hulls and two fresh water pools, perfect for sightseeing and sunbathing on her expansive forward deck.
Manta Raya, comes equipped with a bow ramp to quickly and safely disembark her passengers directly onto the beach.

Manta Raya Catamaran Cruises extends the tour by taking her passengers on an Island Cruise in the Gulf of Nicoya on the return trip from Tortuga Island. Manta Raya glides past more than seven islands: Biological Reserves, National Parks, the maximum prison island of San Lucas (now closed), two smaller islands that are nesting grounds for the Magnificent Frigate and Brown Pelican plus numerous small homes along the shore of the Nicoya Peninsula including a small Manta Raya Catamaran Cruises is more than just a boat ride to a beautiful white sand beach. A day with on the Manta Raya is an opportunity to explore more of this beautiful country from the comfortable deck of a super yacht built just for you. DON’T MISS THE BOAT!!!!
