“What a day! Lovely family”

Coral Surfing Day Tours
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“What a day! Lovely family”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

We had such a great time snorkelling with Maurizio and Mattia. They are really lovely, caring people who are truly passionate about what they do and about protecting the beautiful environment which they introduce you to.

Like another reviewer says, all the other tour guides in the area simply drop you off at an area which may or may not be good for snorkelling while they stay in the boat. Maurizio and Mattia, however, get in the water with you and are particularly keen to share their knowledge with you. They are very patient with anyone who isn't a particularly strong swimmer or who may take a little longer to get used to the mask etc. They have a great eye for spotting fish, particular types of coral etc. I remember they spent ages making sure that everyone had seen the baby nurse shark and massive balloon fish. They are really not in it for the money - but because they love what they do and they want to make sure that everyone is able to explore the incredible underwater environment that Bocas has to offer.

Keep up the good work, guys - if we ever go back to Central America, we'll definitely come to pay you another visit!

“Made by people that love what they do!”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

Coral Surfing is managed by the most passionate people I have seen on a snorkeling trip.
These guys jump into the water with you and explain you all about the marine life in bocas.
Join a family that love their job and want to share their passion for marine life with you!
We never looked at the time...they were having just so much fun as we also had. We had a wonderful lunch at the beach in Zapatilla... sitting at the beach.. eating home made italian Food... then we did the famaous coral surfing!! I have to admit I was a little bit scared of doing it but it was completely safe and FUN!

The most incredible experience I learned was to snorkel in the mangrooves! I would have never imagine to see so many corals and life inside there! I thought it was a joke when they said that we were going to snorkel there! A once in a lifetime experience!

I did previously another tour recommended by my hotel. A local guide takes you on a boat tour. He 'pushes' you into the water in a place where all other boats go and tells you you have 20 min to stay in the water before going for lunch. You stay alone in the water... then they take you to a rest where he receives a commision for bringing you there... and then he takes you as fast as possible back to your hotel...
