Flamingo's Top Tours & Excursions
Playa Flamingo offers excellent scuba diving. Specifically, the Catalina Islands exist 10 kilometers (about a 45-minute boat ride) offshore of Playa Flamingo, and are a great place to see giant manta rays that can grow up to 20 feet across. These manta rays visit the islands for regular “cleaning” sessions, which involve the local fish nibbling parasites and dead tissue off of their skin. Devil rays, spotted-eagle rays, white-tipped reef sharks, and dozens of varieties of tropical fish also can be seen around the Catalina Islands.
The large Flamingo Beach marina is a sportfishing base, but it is temporarily closed. While recent plans to expand the marina have been put on hold temporarily, the US Coast Guard is said to have invested millions in building a new facility adjacent to the marina, and Flamingo residents are excited for the marina project to resume.
Flamingo Beach also offers exquisite sailing tours. Two catamarans service the town; the 34-foot Lazy Lizard and the 37-foot Panache offer morning and afternoon cruises that offer sport fishing, snorkeling, or simply sunset sailing. There is also a 52-foot sailboat, the Shannon, that specializes in private trips for groups of 2 to 20 people, including multi-day voyages.
There are numerous fun-filled day-trips from Playa Flamingo, including a visit to Rincón de la Vieja, a geothermal hotspot and national park that offers fascinating geology and superb hiking. The park has wonderful examples of dry forests and humid forests, and is home to the lake-filled crater of Rincón de la Vieja volcano. Other fun days trips include white-water rafting, ATV tours, canopy tours, kayak fishing, natural mud-treatment and hot-spring spas, and horseback riding tours.
