This is a photo of people getting off a raft as they were returning from a catamaran sailing cruise. I guess they all had seen so much of the sunset already that they were content to walk ashore with their backs to the glorious sight behind them. Tomorrow, I will show you the sight that the people saw in front of them as they walked inland on the beach. The people had obviously had a good time. They had taken a catamaran sailboat operated by Blue Dolphin Sailing.
Tamarindo Bay does not have a pier, so the tourist excursion and snorkeling boats and fishing boats anchor in a protected area of the bay and they escort tourists from the beach to the boats on little rafts or boats. The bay is partially protected from the ocean's waves by a small rocky island and a reef.
I previously posted a photo of the sunset taken from another
sunset sailing cruise in Tamarindo. There are boat trips for snorkeling and scuba diving, and deep sea sports fishing is very popular. Some of the people who rent our condo come to Tamarindo primarily for the sports fishing (rather than the many other activities.)
