Start the day off seeing dolphins right by the boat; then onto a hidden island (where they film a season of Survivors), relax on the beach or go looking for sloths on the trail; next go snorkeling in some incredible reefs. You get plenty of time to go off on your own and explore. The deep-sea diving is something out... More

I've been on several of these day tours on the island, but trust me there is none like this one. From the start the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Our captain, a die hard sea man, very funny. And now the best part of the tour is the deepboarding experience. Gives you a very different view of the marine... More

Approached this location on a whim as there are tons of places in bocas offering excursions. After the gentleman explained the tour and pricing, we booked right away without even going to other locations to compare. And I'm glad we did! This tour was amazing! The staff was FANTASTIC! Very knowledgeable and down to earth and funny! So glad we... More

Deep boarding was the best activity I ever did in the water. You can't miss this! The people are great, they go out of their way to make feel good and enjoy the tour.

You have never heard about deepboarding??? Never mind... neither had I, until a couple of weeks ago!!! They give you a transparent plastic board... relatively small (maybe 2ft wide), body-shaped, and they pull you with a boat, at a speed of near to 2 knots. If you push the board down, you'll plunge in the ocean, as deep as you... More

This was our best day out. We were so warmly greeted and our group was so happy. The 2 crew were terrific. We saw Dolphins and sort of glimpsed sloths. Loved the snorkelling in clear water and even attempted the water boarding with patient instructions. The picnic was fun and we walked through the national park enjoying some swimming although...

Staff was amazing! Big thanks to them! The underwater deep boarding is must try. It is like flying underwater. The whole day trip was great and the good thing was that there were enough room in the boat for everybody. We saw other boats from another company's and they were backed with people and it didn't look so comfortable. We... More

We visited the tour desk on Wednesday asking to book a transfer to Panama City for the Saturday morning. We were given the information and asked if we could pay by card but we could not so we went to get some money from the ATM. There was a problem with the ATM so we couldn't book on Wednesday. The...

We had a blast with the crew. The deep boarding was a true adventure, like waterskiing underwater at a pace you can observe the sea life. We did 2 excursions and we got an extra go at deep boarding both days. The tour of the neighboring islands and snorkeling were also quite good. The second tour was a bust due... More

We were staying in Punta Caracol, a slightly far location compared to others. Because of that, I called and wrote 2 emails (website and direct email) to confirm that the location was not an issue for doing the activity. Even further, on our arrival to Bocas del Toro, we step over their office to get for the 4th time verbal... More
