More than 60.000 passengers

We have proudly provided more than 60,000 adventure experiences aboard our luxury, 55 ft. catamaran since the maiden voyage of our custom designed and built Costa Cat in 2016.

Our Captain, Jim Kitchell, and his brother Joe, want all travellers onboard the Costa Cat to have the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable trip in a comfortable and safe way. Our boats comply with all the requirements requested by Costa Rica authorities, such as MOPT, and we hold a Tourist Declaration of the ICT.

We currently have two catamarans, Costa Cat I & CostaCat II. Both luxury, Costa Rican vessels were built to safety specifications approved by the United States Coast Guard (U.S Coast Guard) and are fully insured.

Our bilingual crew has exceptional experience in the tourism industry as well as knowledge of climate, Costa Rican biodiversity, weather fluctuations, boating, and wildlife. Their expertise will be sure to impress you. Maybe they can even entice you to spend more time in this paradise area of Costa Rica.

On each of our tours, you will be accompanied by the best and most experienced guides. They have a plethora of knowledge of the area’s animals and treasures that you will discover during the trip. All guides are bilingual and able to assist you with your needs throughout the duration of your experience with us.


Jim has been captaining sport fishing yachts in the Los Suenos Marina & Resort since 2001. In 2014, he convinced his brother to build their very own dream boat. 

They decided to combine years of experience and expertise to design, and custom build, the Costa Cat I using the most modern and creative techniques. You’ll notice a comfortable, first class airplane style interior cabin, twin hull design for smooth cruising, and ample space for guests to lounge in the sun and open sea air, or relax inside in the fully air-conditioned cabin. 

With the capacity for up to 70 people, the trip to Isla Tortuga takes 45 minutes cruising at 18 knot. There are two bathrooms onboard and you can have assistance from our bilingual crew and fresh water at any time during the trip.


Coming in at 39 feet, this new model is slightly smaller than the original. Also designed and built by Kitchell Boat Works, the Costa Cat II can seat up to 49 passengers. The open concept catamaran features a snorkel ladder, 1 bathroom and has the ability to cross the Costa Rican Pacific at a 20 knot cruise.
