Kayaking tours in Costa Rica

Costa Rica by Kayak

Join Ben and his guides for a 7-day, 6-night kayak tour get-away in beautiful Drake Bay, remotely located on the Osa Peninsula in southwestern Costa Rica. Learn more about Costa Rica and the Osa Peninsula and why we chose this area.

Enjoy comfortable accommodation and home-cooked meals in a family-run bed and breakfast.

Drake Bay and the Osa Peninsula are known for their predictably calm seas and light winds. Due to Drake Bay's unique rainshadow microclimate, there is no wind before noon every day, ensuring calm seas for paddling each morning.

Because of the intense tropical mid-day sun, paddling will generally be limited to mornings and afternoons leaving ample time for swimming, hiking, or relaxing in the shade.

Beginners welcome

At Drake Bay Kayaking we specialize in introducing beginners of all ages to sea kayaking with a relaxed, easy-paced approach.

We provide all the safety equipment required and quality, Canadian-made single kayaks.

A group size limited to 6 ensures that individual attention and instruction are received.

Tour itinerary and paddling routes are customized to your experience level and preferences to maximize your comfort and safety.

For the more experienced kayaker, nearby exposed coastline, large ocean swells and surf landings provide ample challenge and excitement. Running rapids in the tidal river and kayak surfing the sandbar break in the bay offer additional thrills.
