What You Get: All-inclusive Charters
Experience the epic surf, majestic beauty and secluded beaches of the Pacific waters of Costa Rica and Nicaragua in privacy and comfort aboard the Aquadesiac!
Question: Why deal with rental cars, teeth-jarring roads, hotel check-ins/check-outs with boards and bags and worrying about your gear "going missing", or traveling for over an hour each way in a 25ft panga buffeted by whitecaps during your Costa Rica or Nicaragua surf trip, only to still be battling through crowded line-ups and missing out on some of the best breaks these areas have to offer? Answer: You won't have to, with Costa Rica Surf Charters!
Leave the hassles and crowds behind as we escort you in comfort to Witch's Rock, Ollie's Point, Playa Negra, Mal Pais, or the world class breaks of Nicaragua aboard the Aquadesiac. Kick back on this 52-foot motor yacht and enjoy the awesome scenery and great food between surf sessions, hitting some of the most excellent (and less accessible, less crowded) surf spots along this beautiful stretch of the Pacific coastline. CRSC offers partial or full day and liveaboard/overnight excursions for surfing, diving, coastal tours to secluded beaches, snorkeling, fishing, sunset tours or voyages to special destinations.
Our surf charters focus on the remote breaks of Northwest Costa Rica including Witch's Rock & Ollie's Point, the entire Nicoya Peninsula from Playa Grande to Mal Pais and Southern Pacific Nicaragua. Custom liveaboard charters are our specialty; just let us know what you would consider to be your trip of a lifetime and let us make your dream a reality! (See charter rates and descriptions / itineraries on our "Surf Trips" and "Dive Trips" pages.)
Live-aboard Surf Charters:
Imagine waking up on the Aquadesiac and being the first in the water at Witch's Rock or Ollie's Point for an uncrowded 2-3 hour dawn patrol session before the panga fleet arrives to deposit 20 or more other surfers in the lineup. After a couple of hours of crowd-free surf, enjoy an ice-cold Imperial with a delicious meal while you contemplate your next session from the comfort of your charter boat, deciding whether to join in the fray or just relax until the pangas motor back to shore around 3:00, leaving you and your friends to have the waves to yourselves once again until nightfall!
Live-aboard Dive Charters:
If diving is your thing, our Gulf of Papagayo is the sweet spot for some of the best diving in Costa Rica! Since the Aquadesiac is the only private, live-aboard dive boat based out of this area, you can have world-famous sites like Bat Islands and the Catalinas to yourself for hours, where you'll see why Costa Rica is so well known for the diversity of marine life it has to offer. While other divers from the day boats play hide-and-seek with each other, you can join them or have a freshly prepared meal and relax on board until the crowds are back on shore and you can end the day with another dive with just your boatmates.
Liveaboard Dive and Surf Charters:
Love to surf and are also a certified diver? Maybe you've been diving for years and have always wanted to give surfing a try, or you're a surfer girl whose boyfriend has been trying to get you to become a certified diver, like him? Learn how to do either or both with CRSC! We can customize a charter that includes both surfing and diving, with or without instruction, as necessary. Call for details.
What You Get (Accommodations and Meals):
The Aquadesiac is equipped with comfortable cabin sleeping facilities for up to 6 passengers, or you may choose to spend the night under the stars on the fully cushioned bow deck or upper deck. The Aquadesiac is also equipped with 2 bathrooms complete with showers, galley, 500 gallons of fresh water, a 110 inverter, huge sundeck, two barbeques, a large salon and a 1200 mile range so no destination is too far. (Get more details and see photos of the boat on "The Boat" page.)
Join us for a half or full day charter and we will take you to secluded beaches and snorkeling destinations only accessible by boat, where you may see giant manta rays, huge schools of fish, octopus, eels and more of the diverse marine life that Costa Rica has to offer. If you prefer, just sit back and cruise the coast with schools of dolphins playing in the bow wake and come evening, take in the beautiful sunset. Full day surf trips are also available to Witch's Rock and Ollie's Point, with all of the same amenities.
