Although slightly pricier the Zapatillo tour with under sea Panama was definitely worth it! Timothy and Guillermo were great guides as we saw dolphins, sloths, did some amazing snorkelling and the deep board experience was incredible!

Just went there in the morning to ask if we could join a group of 8 people we already knew were going the same day. The crew made no problem at all out of it, although we booked only a few hours before the start. Had a great time, we saw beatiful wildlife and enjoyed deep boarding a lot.

Our tour was great. We booked private for 2 and rented a GoPro. We had 1 boat driver and the guide who took our photos and videos under sea which was perfect! Having a private tour allowed us to dictate our tour and enjoy it the way we wanted it to. It was pricier than a big group tour but... More

I hoped by booking a tour (Zapatilla) at this place I would have one of a better quality, good guide, etc. However, the guide was far from enthiusiastic and his English was really bad. Also, we had quite a big group (13 people). The places we went to were nice but I see no reason at all to pay the... More

We were lucky enough to pick the perfect day weather-wise but we were told that if it hadn't been possible we could've gone out the day after. We went out at about 10.20 with Moses who explained everything to us. We stopped at dolphin bay and stayed to see a baby playing with it's mother then we went off to... More

This was our favorite all day adventure on Bocas. I've never seen this activity anywhere, but it's best to think of it as snorkeling on steroids. Don't be intimidated, as Moses (our guide) was friendly, a great guy, and an excellent and patient instructor. You can dive as deep as you want along awesomely beautiful reefs, or stay near the...

Start the day off seeing dolphins right by the boat; then onto a hidden island (where they film a season of Survivors), relax on the beach or go looking for sloths on the trail; next go snorkeling in some incredible reefs. You get plenty of time to go off on your own and explore. The deep-sea diving is something out... More

I've been on several of these day tours on the island, but trust me there is none like this one. From the start the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Our captain, a die hard sea man, very funny. And now the best part of the tour is the deepboarding experience. Gives you a very different view of the marine... More

Approached this location on a whim as there are tons of places in bocas offering excursions. After the gentleman explained the tour and pricing, we booked right away without even going to other locations to compare. And I'm glad we did! This tour was amazing! The staff was FANTASTIC! Very knowledgeable and down to earth and funny! So glad we... More
