Corcovado Sirena Boat Tours

NEW: This high season December 2018 – April 2019 we will be offering boat tours from Puerto Jimenez to La Sirena Ranger Station Corcovado National Park.

The Audaz is a 86 ft long and 22 ft wide old shrimp fishing boat that has been refurbished and renovated to fit the needs of large groups of up to 100 people.

On the first story, the Audaz offers a fully equipped air-conditioned kitchen and restaurant made to serve large numbers of people, as well as a bathroom with shower, an outdoor shower, and a large air-conditioned seating area. The second story is on open air and offers a fully equipped bar, as well as a captains private room and the captain’s bridge.

The boat is fully licensed and insured, and has all up to date safety equipment on board. The smaller boat (Doña Tere II) will drop off passengers safely from the big boat to the beach in La Sirena.

Starting in December of 2018 the Audaz will be offering boat tours from Puerto Jimenez and Drake Bay to Corcovado National Park (La Sirena Ranger Station). Below please view our schedule of available boat tours and pricing.

We encourage you to book your tour IN ADVANCE due to limited park permits per day! We recommend to plan ahead at least 2 months ahead of your desired tour date. Especially in high seasons permits sell out fast, and you may not be able to get on a tour on short notice.
