Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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.

We rented a pair of Quads from this guy. Had as small problem and it was dealt with right away. Rental is affordable and almost a necessity there.

“The Best ATV Rental there is!!!! Ever!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My friends and I do a get together trip every year or two and we always do a ATV rental in what ever exotic place we go. Most of the time it's a boring old guided trips on atv's that never go thru anything remotely fun. But in Bocas boy did we have another thing coming! Not only were we allowed to run free but the trails were better than anything we could have imagined! Miles of beautiful rain forest surrounded by monkeys, ocean and wildlife! Trails so fun I wish we wouldn't have done it on our last day cause I'd have been glad to do it over and over just to go on all the trails we didn't have time for. Good for newbies (just take the jungle highway and blow your mind) or the more experienced (the monkey trail). I CANNOT STRESS HOW MUCH FUN WE HAD! The staff was great (all the beer you can drink when the trip was over) and the ATVs were amazing( no four wheelers with golf cart engines) the real deals. This place made our trip and Bocas was amazing without it! If you love adventure or just a good time NOTHING AND I DO MEAN NOTHING COMPARES! There is a hike around some caves to a beautiful private beach that is cool too if you need a break from the excitement and some amazing beaches to rinse the mud off. All in all I'd give it 10 stars if I could. If you are ever in Bocas or just wanna have a great time this is the place to go!

“A great adventure with a great company”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

I've rented many different types of vehicles while traveling and this experience was the best. The trails were incredibly fun with river crossings, mud patches, tight trails and great swimming spots. It was a great way to see the island. If you rent overnight you can take the guad to the turtle tours with the conservation group, you will save cab fare witch will offset a lot of the cost of the quad. It was great fun and a great value I highly recommend it. Great employees and owners!!

“Hold on to your seat!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We rented an ATV for 2 days from Flying Pirates. We wanted to see more of the island and since we were staying at Playa Bluff beach, the taxis cost $15 to town, so we though we would combine our in town activities with the rental.

The first day of the rental we decided to ride up to La Piscina & The Blue Lagoon, which we think were beautiful but we were so stressed out from the ride up there we didn't really enjoy them. The jungle trail was treacherous, muddy, and beyond what we anticipated. Perhaps we exceeded our age limit on this trek! The way back on the "jungle highway" was much better.

The next day we drove out to Starfish Beach on a nice paved rode, so much better!

The staff of Flying Pirates was great. We rented from the office in town and we were sent by taxi (their cost) to the warehouse to pick up the ATV and receive instructions. Upon returning our ATV we were taken back to town in time for our scheduled boat trip.
