Kerry and James were able to accommodate last-minute plans, that included two discovery dives for my teenagers. Wish I travelled to Panama more, because I would make it a point to head back to Pedasi as often as possible. Thanks again for a great day!!

Isla Iguana is a good dive site for sea creatures. The coral is not your Caribbean coral but the life it sustains is tremendous. Dives here are not deep so a great place for most anyone to dive. The second dive was a drift dive...More
