About us



Bay's Island Cruises Corporation begins when a young farmer, a worker of a maritime tourism agency, begins to dream about his own business. Today, more than 30 years later, Bay Island Cruises is a proudly 100% Costa Rican Capital Company, owned by Mr. Luis Fernando Sánchez Mora.

At its beginnings, with the Bay's Princess yacht, the company was exclusively dedicated to sail to Tortuga Island, but, thanks to the demand, the idea of building a boat with greater capacity and comfort was born, to offer our customers exotic destinations within the Gulf of Nicoya.

Today, we provide unforgettable experiences at impressive destinations by means of our high quality customer service and our highly trained personnel. During your journey with us, you will enjoy the lush natural attractions that our beautiful country offers.

A highlight of our Costa Rica Vacation
We had an excellent time! The whole staff is super nice, and attentive. The boat ride is beautiful, the island is beautiful, the food was tasty, they even washed our feet as we entered the boat leaving the island. This trip was the highlight of our Costa Rica vacation.

This is a great tour that I would recommend if you go to Costa Rica.
You will board a Catamaran fun boat from the Pacific coast of Costa Rica into the Golf of Nicoya. Where You will experience a breathless and relaxing sailing through several small islands, while being served fruit trays and drinks by Costa Rican sailors dressed in white. Narration of the history of the islands is provided as well as music by a Costa Rican band and entertainment as well.
