Despite calling themselves an eco tourism / environmentally friendly company, seems like most of their guides disturb wildlife - pull sloths out of water just to make them pose for a photo or have a tourist take a picture.

This is a great way to see the island and surrounding snorkeling areas. If you want perfection and need things to go like clockwork, maybe sailing isn't for you. Try a cruise ship instead. We had a nice intimate trip after waiting for more adventurers...More

Marcel was great! He took us to a couple of great snorkeling locations (vibrant coral, various fish and reef life) and made sure we saw dolphins before heading back in. Decent price, lunch was great. If you're looking for a chill day full of fun...More

If you want to see Bocas del Toro from the water, forget about the speedboats and go on this tour instead. We did snorkelling in two different spots off Isla San Cristobal and Isla Solarte, which was great. We didn't spot any dolphins in dolphin...More

Marcel did a great job of picking unique and excellent places to sail, snorkel, and watch dolphin. Even though the wind was light, he made the best of it and we enjoyed a relaxing day of sailing. Highly recommended! Bring cash, they don't take credit...More

As other reviewers have mentioned, don't plan too much around a trip with Bocas Sailing unless you choose to privately charter their boat. We booked a trip two days in advance and paid down deposits, and were told the only reason they'd cancel is if...More
