a lay day at the recent Los Sueños Open Billfish tournament
in Herradura, Costa Rica, PMY’s Capt. Patrick Sciacca
tried his hand at a rainforest canopy tour with Canopy Adventures
Jaco. After trucking up a mountainside and strapping into his safety
harness, the tour consisted of swinging from tree to tree high (a
couple of hundred feet) over the rainforest’s deck on
angled cables. (Some of the cable runs on this tour were 500 meters
in length). If you’re into high-altitude, high-speed
fun, and enjoy incredible views of the Pacific, Capt. Sciacca highly
recommends trying this if you’re down this way. The
tours average about $55 American and last about an hour and a half.
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
Have a look and see what you think. ▶
