Thursday 19th October 2017 – Quepos

We were up at 7.30 this morning for a trip in a catamaran to spot whales and dolphins. The rain from the previous night had, thankfully, stopped and the weather was warm and dry but the sky overcast.

After breakfast at the hotel we were collected by minibus to be driven the short distance to the port. Here we received our wrist bands before we boarded the boat for an 8.30 start.

We has a departure drink and the boat cruised ou out of the harbour and along the coast. The views were impressive, with the lush rainforest rising directly from the shore.  The boat headed in the direction of the national park and you could see the route of the road that we had taken the previous day, with the various hotels, lodges and hostels lining it.

The boat then headed out to sea to spot where in their migration. We did see a turtle in the water quite close to the boat, but sadly we weren’t lucky enough to see and whales or dolphins.

We headed back towards the shore and into a bay where we moored up and were able to go swimming, use the slide in the back of the boat and jump from the roof!

Lunch of pasta and fish kebabs was then served before cruised back to the harbour for 12.30.

We spent the afternoon relaxing and shopping for some tat (souvenirs) to take home, avoiding another heavy and lengthy thunderstorm, before meeting with the rest of the group for food!
