Deep boarding is awesome.....ya gotta try it! The places we visited were some good and some great. Snorkeling was in a good location...not great. Isla Zapatilla - beautiful beyond description. However, lunch was below average....bring your own. I hope you know some Spanish. We were lucky to have some European's to translate for us....otherwise...our guide advertised as English speaking....but not... More

We chose this company due to its great reviews and were not disappointed! We had an amazing time, ended up being the only customers for the day in the company of Guillermo, Aurelio and the captain :P All very friendly and relaxed! We could stay in Cayo Zapatillo for 2 hours and a half, exploring and relaxing at the beautiful... More

Although slightly pricier the Zapatillo tour with under sea Panama was definitely worth it! Timothy and Guillermo were great guides as we saw dolphins, sloths, did some amazing snorkelling and the deep board experience was incredible!

Just went there in the morning to ask if we could join a group of 8 people we already knew were going the same day. The crew made no problem at all out of it, although we booked only a few hours before the start. Had a great time, we saw beatiful wildlife and enjoyed deep boarding a lot.

Our tour was great. We booked private for 2 and rented a GoPro. We had 1 boat driver and the guide who took our photos and videos under sea which was perfect! Having a private tour allowed us to dictate our tour and enjoy it the way we wanted it to. It was pricier than a big group tour but... More

I hoped by booking a tour (Zapatilla) at this place I would have one of a better quality, good guide, etc. However, the guide was far from enthiusiastic and his English was really bad. Also, we had quite a big group (13 people). The places we went to were nice but I see no reason at all to pay the... More

We were lucky enough to pick the perfect day weather-wise but we were told that if it hadn't been possible we could've gone out the day after. We went out at about 10.20 with Moses who explained everything to us. We stopped at dolphin bay and stayed to see a baby playing with it's mother then we went off to... More

This was our favorite all day adventure on Bocas. I've never seen this activity anywhere, but it's best to think of it as snorkeling on steroids. Don't be intimidated, as Moses (our guide) was friendly, a great guy, and an excellent and patient instructor. You can dive as deep as you want along awesomely beautiful reefs, or stay near the...
