Did the 3-hour snorkeling tour of Boyarena sandbank, Mogo-Mogo, and Chapera. Weather was perfect, sun was out, and the fish abundant. The waters are calm and reefs teeming with life. Guillermo is an efficient captain who explained where to swim and snorkel, then left us to our own devices. $70 for the morning is a truly fair price for the... More

I had dive before but I needed a review and Guillermo was very kind to review and he made me feel very comfortable. My husband and I had a... More

Coral Dreams was a great dive! While there, Guillermo, our very informative dive guide, showed us an assortment of fish, lobsters, two sharks, star fish, sea urchins, etc. Guillermo was very easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and professional. On our trip, we dove here and in Portobelo. Hands down, Contadora Island offered the better diving. Our only problem with... More

My wife and I did an introductory scuba session on Isla Contadora in the Pearl Islands in the Bay of Panama. Guillermo's friendly approach and professionalism made it a wonderful adventure in this Island paradise. The conditions and the dive site could not have been more beautiful. Clear water, warm skies and exotic and colorful fish. Highly recommended for the... More

Coral Dreams is the best place to get certified! Guillermo is a great diver, patient, experient, and responsible ! The skills I have today I owe to him, and the passion I have is a result from his inspirational diving. Roxy, his wife, is a sweetheart, and the best boat pilot in the Caribbean :) It's just a great place... More

I was looking forward to snorkeling on Contadora Island. However, on the day that we arrived, there was low visibility and we couldn't really see anything. At the shop, they seemed to know that there was low visibility, but they stayed positive and convinced us that "you never know." We stopped at a few islands and walked around/went swimming. This...

My wife booked this and it was a great time! We took a boat out about 15-20 minutes to a large sand bar in the ocean, then another 10 minutes to a huge coral reef. Lots of species to look at. Even boated by the island where they shot survivor. Guide brought water and talked lots about the area.

We booked a snorkelling trip with Coral Dream to visit 2 islands and a snorkelling stop. All staff were super friendly and helpful. There was no-one else originally signed up for the trip we wanted to do, but as promised they emailed us to confirm others had signed up and the trip would take place. Due to weather conditions our... More

Well organised and friendly a really relaxing 2 tank dive although currents can be quite strong. Captain and dive team know their stuff. An enjoyable way to spend a morning on isla contadora before hitting the beach then the bar for a sundowner such a hard life ha!

Efficient, organized & knew his craft- Guillermo was a very good tour operator. He was responsive to our last minute email request for a snorkeling trip for our family of 5 and we trusted his expertise. He gave us services as promised- didn't feel rushed at all. We arrived from Panama City via the 7:00 am ferry into C' Dora... More
