We spent the day on the catamaran with another family. Sighted many dolphins. Snorkeled at two different reefs - colorful coral and fish plenty. Captain Marcel is very knowledgable about the marine and local life. We were served delicious club sandwiches and pineapple snack. Drinks were plenty for $1 apiece. The sailing was so smooth and relaxing that two young... More

Had such an amazing day out on the water, such beautiful scenery and plenty of dolphins coming up to say hello! The captain of the boat "Marcel" had such knowledge of the whole area having lived there for such a long time. Snorkelling at 2 very beautiful locations i couldnt beleive how much life and colour these particular reefs had.... More

probably my highlight of the trip in Bocas. The Captain Marcel was excellent, snorkling good, the catarman trip excellent. We saw some dolphins, and the day ticked all the boxes. for only a little bit more than what you'd pay for the smaller motor boats to do similar, this is well worth it.

We've been on a lot of tours, but none have been so chill as Bocas Sailing. We had a beautiful day, seeing dolphins, and snorkeling among prime coral reefs (I saw at least 20-30 different types of fish) and had fresh pineapple and delicious deli sandwiches included. Unlimited beer, water, pepsi and other drinks were very reasonable (honor system!). We... More

Definitely need to do this while in Bocas! Brewster Rooster signed us up and Captain Marcel took us out. We loved everyone we got to meet and Marcel made us feel as though he was just taking a bunch of friends out for the day. We got to snorkel and drink fresh coconuts and $1 beers all day! BEST SANDWICH... More

My travelling partner and I booked this full day with Captain Marcell....it was perfect in every way, from Dolphins to starfish. Marcell is very informative about a variety of subjects in addition to being a great host. If you visit Bocas Del Toro....don't miss this trip!!!!

This was a fantastic day. My family of 4 was lucky to get the whole boat to ourselves. The weather looked dreary at first, but it quickly turned beautiful. A great lunch was served, the best sandwich in Bocas, we also had a few sodas and beers. Eddie was an awesome friendly captain, and a very cool guy. I found... More

Went to Bocas with my sister and a friend. We originally planned to stay in bocas at a hotel. However we soon discovered it was too much of a party place and the music played till 3am outside our window. So we moved to Naylamp and sailed for 4 days with Daniel. It was amazing! Great food, snorkeling and relaxing.... More

we had such fun, even though we had fairly rubbish weather (and we're scottish), but such a lovely time swimming. I'd recommend anyone to bring warm clothes as it does get chilly out there on the sea. The food was lovely and the fish were wonderful. Marcel is dead nice, although doesn't give you as much info as i'd have... More
