Overview
More
Crystal clear water, amazing reefs, corals and giant fish, starfishes, sea urchins, all this and more in a day dedicated to the sea and all its inhabitants. Holding a special device you can immerse in an underwater paradise. You can reach up to 8 meters deep, cause of the large string that, insured at the boat, pulls you very softly. 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.

The tour of the different island was FANTASTIC. Loved the crystal clear water and the temperature was great. Can't say enough of the trip, highlight of my visit to Panama (9 weeks). Loved snorkeling and seeing the sloths. Well worth the money.

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...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...More
