Marcel (the owner) was an amazing host/captain. A real down to earth brilliant man. My husband arranged a private sunset sail to end our wedding day and it was just perfect. He even brought out cups and chilled out bottle for our Pellegrino celebratory sunset drink (we don't drink, but if we did, this would make an excellent party cruise!)... More

We had a grand day sailing with Captain Daniel on Naylamp. Four of us spent a pleasurable ride on the boat up to the mouth of a river;saw several dolphins along the way. Then we kayaked up a mangrove canopied mild river, saw a few sloths; about a half mile of mild leisurely paddling. From there we hiked the jungle... More

We booked the all day catamaran trip for $48 each. It was really good, we saw lots of dolphins jumping out of the water and swimming beside the boat. Then we went to the first snorkelling site- the coral was really colourful and there were starfish. There weren't many fish at that stop- the attraction is moreso the coral. Then... More

The trip is a little more than a half day and includes many destinations: Coral Cay, Dolphin's Bay, and Zapatilla. Salvador, the captain, was very informative and professional and his son was a great assistant. There is a lunch provided halfway through and were very good turkey subs and beers and other beverages. A refreshing late afternoon break with sliced... More

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.

If you want to see dolphins in the Dolphin Bay and don´t bother them by approaching too close to them, if you want to do some snorkeling in the best places around Bocas, if you want to do a peaceful, all day long boat trip without a loud motor of a motor fishing boat and if you want to get...

My mom and I visited Bocas as our last stop on a three week excursion through Costa Rica and Panama. Upon arriving, we had high expectations for Bocas Sailing from TripAdvisor reviews and recommendations from our hotel manager. We only had a day to spare, so we figured that this would be the best way to see a lot of... More

My boyfriend and I unfortunately only had one full day in Bocas Del Toro, and I am very glad we spent it with Bocas Sailing. I really wanted to go to Dolphin Bay, and after reading some reviews I was afraid of going with a tour that would harm the dolphins. Bocas Sailing is great because it is on a... More

His hawkers on the street accurately described exactly what we were paying for. My wife and I wanted a small group and were lucky to get 4 other multinational extremely personable people that made the trip even better. This captain really knows his stuff, and we were really happy he wanted to see if the VIOLENT storm front was safe... More

What a nice and relaxing trip. Sailing around the islands of Bocas has been fantastic for my girlfriend and me. Our captain showed us two nice and different snorcle spots and we went to see the Dolphine Bay after the motorised tourists boots left...it has been full of dolphines. Amazing! And he fished a massiv Barracuda! It has been a... More
