Private Party Boat Rental in Costa Rica

This is without a doubt THE BEST EXCURSION in Jaco for a group of friends and family on vacation in Costa Rica. Imagine a half day or full day on the pacific with some food, drinks and a DJ spinning your favorite tunes. Jump off the deck into the warm ocean water where you can do some snorkeling or simply relax on an inflattable donut.

Choose between cruising around some private beaches near Jaco and Los Sueños for a half day tour (approximately 4 hours), or chartering a full day trip which can also include going to Tortuga Island. Below we will go over the details and options available for your Costa Rica Party Boat Experience!


The Jaco VIP 50' Party Boat

Above is a video of our most popular party boat where you can see a mix of the various options available including a DJ, going to Tortuga Island for the day, and hiring several boats which is great for large groups.

The boat includes a Captain and Mate. There is a salon with seating, and one bedroom with a queen size bed. The AC unit will keep the indoor area somewhat cool but not cold. There is a built in stereo system where you can connect your phone to play your own music (DJ with equipment is available as an add-on).

Some basics are included with the party boat (see below). You can bring more beer, mixers or alcohol with you, as well as any snacks you might want during the day.

Half Day Shoreline Cruise. (12 to 4pm)

Pick up from your vacation rental house is at approximately 11:15am. We can make a quick stop to purchase some supplies if needed, but best to be prepared before hand. Also a good idea to eat something before leaving the house... or get the upgrade!

The Party Boat is anchored in Herradura Bay next to Los Sueños Marina which is approximately a 12 minute drive from Jaco. Once aboard, your captain will cruise around the area to some secluded beaches a few minutes to the north. Here you can party, chill out, jump into the water, and swim up to the beach. After this take a quick trip south to see Jaco Beach from the water.

Full Day Private Party Boat & Charter to Tortuga Island (9am to 5pm).

The most popular reason for the full day charter is to have a private boat take you to Tortuga Island. This nature reserve island is known for it's white sandy beaches, clear warm waters, ocean actvities and laid back vibe. Most of the ticket boats depart the island at around 2:30pm which may give you the opportunity to enjoy the beach and facilities for a couple of hours to yourselves.

Full Day Rates: (up to 10 people)

*Prices listed for up to 10 people. For groups of more than 10 people, add $100 per person up to a total max of 35 people.

Important Notes and Details.

A $500 non-refundable security deposit is required to book a party boat. That deposit will go towards the cost of the charter. You will only lose the deposit if you cancel for any reason. If the captain cancels due to weather or any reason, you will be fully refunded.

Jaco VIP does not own any of the party boats. Sometimes mechanical issues occur and the charter will be canceled by the boat owner. Jaco VIP has no control over these cancellations. The boat owner will always make safety the first priority. Should your charter be canceled by the boat owner, you will be given a full-refund
