Testimonial: Our family of four (two teenage girls) loved everything about this tour! What an incredible, thrilling experience! Our two guides, Roberto and Daner, made us feel safe and in good hands...they took us one by one through a cave which was the most exciting experience we've ever had. We loved Roberto describing points of interest and loved Daner's beautiful fresh fruit display. We felt like it was their goal to make sure we had a wonderful experience. So special and very much appreciated by our family! Thank you :)

This was a great experience all around. Booking the tour in person with the very delightful and informative Rachel: got us all prepared for what to expect. The staff at the office super friendly, Thanks Jose! After a quick ride to the start of the tour, we had a great couple of hours with Victor, a super guide who pointed out lots of things about the ecology of the mangroves and had an excellent eye for spotting wildlife that you might otherwise paddle right past: three kinds of kingfishers, mangrove hawk, raccoon, boat-billed heron, two-toed sloths (3), and even a three-toed sloth and a very elusive great curassow on the way to the launch. Wonderful refreshing perfectly ripe fruit after the tour. A morning very, very well spent. HIGHLY recommended!
Here is a great review we just received from the teacher of a group of students. This is one of many student groups we take during the summer months to teach about the amazing ecosystem of the mangroves.

Testimonial: "Fantastic kayaking trip with Pineapple Tours! My students and I had a wonderful time exploring the mangroves and seeing unique biodiversity along the beautiful coastline of Dominical. The guides were extremely friendly and professional, and did a wonderful job coordinating a fun and safe kayaking experience in Costa Rica. I have used other companies in the past but Pineapple Tours clearly provides the best experience. Thank you for the wonderful time!" Visited June 2016

We went on the 1/2 day kayak tour of the mangroves, a snorkel experience and time at the Whale's Tale. I am so impressed with Pineapple tours. It was only the two of us signed up and instead of doing the minimum for a less than full time slot, we felt like we got the royal treatment. Everyone we dealt with were super nice and helpful. Our guide Jovino was the highlight of the experience. He was born and grew up in the area so his knowledge and stories were incredible. Instead of rushing back as the day ended, he made sure we had all the time we needed and we were even on the water for the start of the sunset and treated to a tropical fruit meal on the beach until almost completely dark. It was amazing. I would highly recommend them as your tour company of choice in the Dominical area.

"Went ocean kayaking to the Whale's Tail south of Dominical. You think the view is beautiful from the beach??? Well, you get a whole new appreciation and point of view from the kayak out in the ocean. The shoreline is breathtaking! We were also able to take a few minutes to go snorkeling and see some of the sea life inhabiting the area.
The guides were really nice and were focused on our safety first and foremost. Victor, the one guide, gave us a really nice history lesson when we went kayaking up the river to see the mangroves. Costa Rica is a wonderful place full of rich history and culture and it was an added bonus to get that knowledge with our tour.
Finally, Rachel and her husband were really friendly and helpful too!! She was patient answering our million questions and made sure we had all the info we needed to enjoy our tour. Also, they even helped us out the day after our tour and rented us beach chairs and an umbrella for a heck of deal!"
Overall, Pineapple Kayak Tours exceeded my expectations. When I am back in Dominical I will be using them again and referring all of my friends to them!

"We took the 7 am kayak tour through the mangroves with Victor as our guide. He is a knowledgeable local and made the paddle thru the mangroves interesting and informative! We were lucky enough to see white- faced monkeys swinging and jumping in the trees, lots of birds and a sloth up in the tree tops! He even took us to a quiet area in he mangrove to meditate and reflect at the end. Loved the experience! Rachel was very helpful setting up the tour. Great spread of local fruit at the end of the tour too!"
"Intelligent, exciting, surprising."

"I went on the Mangrove tour with two guides from Pineapple tours. They worked very well together and made for an easy and seamless transition from the shop in Dominical to the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out a variety of species of bird, crab and iguanas. He even spotted a hummingbird nest with 2 chics. The tour was unforgettable and I'd recommend to anyone."

"We had an awesome tour with our local guide, Michael. He was very helpful and knowledgeable on both water-related activities. We had a healthy lunch of a mixture of fruit and cold water at the "Whales Tail" before kayaking back to the beach. Within one day, Pineapple Tours sent us free pictures from our adventure. I would highly recommend this tour to future Dominical visitors."
