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

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

Bocas is full of motorboat tours offering to speed you around the different islands on the cheap. All I can say is their passengers looked longingly at us as they spend by in their cramped boats while we lazed around the spacious catamaran taking in the sights and the sun. Worth an extra $20? Most definitely. The owner, Marcel, is... More

I have done this tour for over 40 times! I am a tour guide and always bring my groups over here, who love it as much as I do! So much better than driving one of the speed boats, if the wind is good, the sails go up and you can just enjoy the sun and have a great relaxing... More

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!

Although there are many reviews for a number of tours that take you around the highlights of the islands, the Bocas Sailing option is a little different. The catamarans (they have two) are more a "sailing" opportunity than the "whizz there and back in a water taxi" that most of the others seem to offer. For $45 per person, you... More
