Had a nice day sailing around Bocas, met some good people. Didn't see one dolphin, the snorkeling was good. Sandwiches and beer were good. Worth the trip.

FIrst the bad thing: Marcel the owner can´t guarentee good weather. But even with rain and without wind it´s a great experience. And with son and a little bit of wind it´s perfect. I did the tour four times and enjoyed it always

Very beautiful coral formations, lots of dolphin sightings, lunch included. Our captain, Eddie, was delightful and informative as he skillfully maneuvered the catamaran, and is a great sandwich maker as well!

I will be staying in Bocas del Torres next year. How much would an overnight private tour cost (in April, 2017)? If we took your "public tour" about how other many people would be joining us, and what would that cost? Errol Pomerance

Hello, I tried to get in touch through your website over a week ago but nobody has responded to me yet. Do you have an email address that I may email you at directly? We are interested in booking a private day for 5 of us.
