Owner description: ATV/Quad Rental Flying Pirates - ride an ATV, with or without a guide, through a private, off-limits-to-everyone-else, 1,500 acre rainforest! Your day begins in the heart of Bocas town, where you will be picked up and shuttled to our secondary location just outside of town. We offer surf racks, for those of you wanting to hit the waves while you are out, and all of our bikes come with lock boxes attached for your cameras and cash. Wind your way out of town until you hit Bluff Road and just keep right on going until you reach our property. The Flying Pirates trails will take you through the jungle, then alongside pristine beaches, all perfect for a pit stop and some swimming. Rock Beach, La Piscina and, the newly accessible Blue Lagoon, are all gorgeous natural water formations perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Explore the caves at the tip of the island, and return through Monkey Trail. If you rev your engines a little bit, the monkeys might just yell back at you.

“Flying Pirates is Team WorldTour APPROVED!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We rented from Steve and Rhonda yesterday, and just had a blast! The property was nice, the trails in good shape, and the quad gave us no problems. No matter your riding experience, it seems there was a section for you to ride. The beach out at the end of the trail is gorgeous, and the island gives you a great view from the top!
We would gladly go and do this again!

“Best time in Bocas!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I recently traveled to Bocas with two friends for one of there 30th birthdays and we rented ATV's from Flying Pirates our last day of our trip and it was the most fun we had. We wished would have discovered it sooner; we could have easily done this multiple days in a row. The self guided ATV tour was absolutely amazing with the trails clearly marked but still providing a sense of adventure and freedom of choice. There was so many sites to stop and see along the way we didn't have enough time with a half day rental to stop for more than a few minutes at each one. Towards the end of the trail there is a great opportunity for a short 30 min hike to the point where there is a single house with a horse tied off in the yard on a pristine beach with an amazing little uninhabited island a hundred meters or so from the beach. Also in this area is some bat caves that we only ventured a little ways in. One of the best parts of the trips was after we returned to the garage with the ATV's we enjoyed all you can drink beers with the owner. He was one of the most interesting characters I have ever met and had endless stories to share about base jumping and other crazy adventures. If you are traveling to Bocas this is a must see attraction!

“Amazing day trip!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I did this a few days ago, and I wanted to write a review before we left Bocas because we had such an amazing time!! The guys and girls that work for this company are extremely personable and helpful and the actual ATV-ing was unreal! The trails varied from super easy to moderately difficult so as beginners we felt like we experienced it all! Plus free beers at the end of your trip to get to know the people that work there, how could you go wrong there!? I highly recommend this to anyone!!!

“Insanely fun!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I and our friend rented quads from these guys for a full day. It was a blast! There are extensive trails to explore with some sections for going fast, some for off roading through the jungle and a stretch along the beach. Go all the way to the lagoon. Beautiful. The staff was awesome. Professional and fun. When you get back, they give you as much beer as you can drink. Love these guys! Absolutely worth the price for a really special and fun day.

“We love Flying Pirates! ”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We went there to rent the quads for one day with our kids. We really, really had an amazing day! Before the tour everything was properly explained, the trails, how the quads worked and about any damage.

The private property with the trails are beautiful and amazing! Nice private beaches, a lagoon, pristine waters, jungle. There are monkeys, sloths, birds and just unspoiled nature. Everything you could wish for!

At the end of the day we returned, drink some beers (for the kids there was sprite and pirate ice tea) and suddenly we rented the quads for 3 more days!

The people behind Flying Pirate are really nice. We could honestly say Norma and Steve are amazing and lovely people, we think (and feel) we find some friends on Bocas! Hope to come back! Isabelle and Ties want to go back now!
And always welcome at our place :)
