We had an excellent day on the water. Marcel knew two perfect snorkeling spots where we were able to get some great GoPro footage. We even got an octopus on camera! Sailing was Soooo relaxing, especially when we constantly too noisy water taxis everywhere. He was a great personality and knew a ton of local history. This was one of... More

On Sunday night we booked a spot for 2 people on the boat for the following day. When we got there they informed us there were some troubles with the motor and the trip might have been cancelled. After 10 minutes the guy confirmed us it was cancelled and offered us to join the following day. According to his words,... More

Roger was the perfect captain. We had a wonderful sail, nice lunch, two nice snorkeling stops and the wind kicked in to finish out our perfect day. Would definitely recommend.

This was an incredible experience! The reefs in the mangroves are unique, colorful, and beautiful. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and very helpful. We enjoyed the sandwiches, beer, water, music, and overall relaxing setting on the water. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a relaxing adventure that's unique to Bocas!

I had a great time relaxing and exploring the two snorkeling spots, and we saw lots of dolphins! The sandwiches were delicious as well.

Whilst enjoying breakfast at the german bakery (see my other Posts) we bumped into Marcel, a 55 year old, fit pirate looking, German born local. We already booked a regular tour,but were talked in to joining Marcel on the H20, his majestic catamaran. The weather was extraordinary and the boat was spacious enough to fit the eleven of us: all... More

My wife and I sailed with Marcell in mid-June. The weather was perfectly sunny but not overly conducive for sailing. Marcell still made the most of the poor wind and all had a great time. The snorkeling was actually better than I had anticipated as there is still a lot of live coral in the area rather than a bunch... More

Relaxing day trip on a catamaran with two spots for snorkling. We have seen several dolphines and a shark. The first snorkling spot was close to the Mangrove: I have never seen so many fishes outside of a tank. Skipper speaks Spanish, English and German. Meeting Point was in the park. (I have needed a call to find that out.)

We booked a trip with Bocas Sailing spontaneously. Marcell answered our E-Mail request within a few minutes and picked us the next day up at the park from which we went to his boat. We had luck that only 2 other guests have booked the same day so we have been a small group of 4 people and there was... More

I had a great time with Marcell as our captain! Myself and 3 friends had this catamaran to ourselves for an entire day. Marcell made us sub sandwiches and bartended. He took us to a great spot for snorkeling (although I did get a sea urchint splinter so I recommend water shoes!). We also saw a bunch of Dolphins. I... More
