costa cat cruises crew

We are proudly a family built, owned and operated Tortuga Island Catamaran excursion! Come and experience the magic for yourself aboard our 55 foot luxury catamaran!

Jim has been captaining sport fishing yachts in the Los Suenos Marina since 2001! The glistening, crystal waters, biodiversity, and country steeped in rich culture captivated Captain Jim so much that he decided to relocate to Costa Rica and build his own dream boat experience with his brother, Joe.

In 2014, Jim convinced his brother Joe, also a boat captain and master composite boat builder, to come down to Costa Rica and begin construction of the Costa Cat dream! 

Jim and Joe developed the idea to create a luxury catamaran that would allow them to share their passion for boating with others. The custom designed and built Costa Cat has been cruising the Pacific waters since 2016 and continues to provide award winning service to adventurer’s from all around the world. This incredible venture has been so personally rewarding for the Kitchell Brothers, that they are currently crafting additional boats to ensure that all travellers to Costa Rica will get the opportunity to experience Tortuga Island in comfort. 

With Costa Cat, we guarantee you a day in paradise that you will never forget. Get in touch with nature, spend time with family, and create new friendships. Our professional and highly experienced bilingual staff will wait on you hand and foot, and are eager to share their plethora of knowledge about the area!
