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

We just spent our Christmas Eve on a fabulous 3 hour snorkeling excursion with Coral Dreams on Contadora Island. The trip was easy to arrange and reasonably priced & Captain Guillermo could not have been friendlier and more knowledgeable. Before the snorkeling began, we stopped first on a pristine massive sandbar-island to collect seashells, climb on lava rocks and take... More

Guillermo is a very kind and professional bi-lingual guide, the tour to Mogo-mogo and Chapera islands and the Bayonera sandbank were a lot of fun for my mother (who doesn't snorkel) and for me (beginner snorkeler). It is reasonably priced at 50$ pp. I would recommend it especially if you are staying for several days in Contadora and would like... More

Same day emailed back and got on the 10am tour. Nice extended time in the water as opposed to some companies who get you in and out we had plenty of time to explore each area.

We tried booking the snorkeling in advance. We passed their office a couple of times when it was closed. We ended up emailing them and with somewhat of a confirmation we just showed up. We had to wait a bit, then everyone paid and we picked up our gear. Very relaxed, it's an island after all. It was a friendly... More

We rented our snorkel gear for 2 days. They were very accommodating and prices were average - pretty much what we would expect to pay.

If you come in Panama to see whales - and if it is the good season - go to Contadora and meet Guillermo at Coral Dreams. We made two boat trips whit him, and we were not disappointed : the first trip (afternoon) was more than interresting, with several humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and - pretty rare - a group...
