You will enjoy the most emotional and incredible activity never seen in Bocas del Toro: “Coral Surfing”. With “coral surfing” you can surf above the coral, see the wonders that this sea has to offer, cover a large area effortlessly, test emotions you've never tasted in your life and having fun like a dolphin...You will never forget it.

It's like nothing I've ever done before, but there's just not that much to see in the water. Definetly try twisting. Don't do it if your ears are very sensitive to pressure : you CAN equalize, but you have to hold the board with one hand and you need some arm strenght to do so,

Maurizio and Mattia were great guides, both very personable and very informative. With snorkeling, you go past the normal "here's your mask, off you go" and dive into a learning adventure under the sea (I couldn't resist the pun), learning about the types of coral and marine life around the spots they take you. Then coral surfing is a unique... More

Amazing experience!! Snorkelling was great fun and the guide was excellent at finding and pointing out sealife and corals... The actual coral surfing was intense, you get just enough time doing it to enjoy yourself but not long enough to get uncomfortably worn out... Perfect balance of activities... They also offer an extra service of recording your surf on a... More

One of the best activities in Bocas. Lots and lots of fun. I felt as if I was flying under water. The people are passionate about marine life and very professional.

We had such a great time snorkelling with Maurizio and Mattia. They are really lovely, caring people who are truly passionate about what they do and about protecting the beautiful environment which they introduce you to. Like another reviewer says, all the other tour guides in the area simply drop you off at an area which may or may not... More
