5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

What a wonderful way to enjoy the day in Bocas. Captain took us out dolphin watching and snorkeling while even providing a wonderful sandwich for lunch. We highly recommend this trip to anyone who wishes to experience Bocas from the water.

“a beautiful day on the catamaran with captain hardy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

....this is the best tour you can get in and around bocas. we had such a wonderful day sailing across see to different spots. first we went towards dolphin bay and enjoyed watching dolphins having fun - not too far from the boat. (luckily we choose to sail - since the masses of motor boat tours that we saw before made a lot of loud noices. hardy explained us that they are very disrespectful with the nature and the dolphins and are even driving on top of them - which kills several of those beautiful creatures per year). our calm and slow way of exploring the sea made them feeling way more comfortable. for all people who care to keep and protect this natural beauty around bocas I suggest choosing the sailing option. for the 40 (5 USD student discount) you get an unforgettable day on the catamaran, sunbathing, relaxing, beautiful snorkeling spots, a big sandwich for lunch AND captain hardy explains all about the nature, animals and if you are interested also about sailing.
if I ever come back to bocas, I will for sure go again with captain hardy!

“Incredible snorkeling. So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We spent a day with Harley on the catamaran and had so much fun!! It rained as we were leaving the dock, and was tempting to get off, but I am so glad we didn't. The rain cleared up 10 minutes out of town, and the rest of the day was just perfect. We headed out to the mangroves and snorkeled for an hour. We saw HUGE starfish, and all kinds of other fish that I do not know the names for. After snorkeling we returned to the boat, where Harley had lunch ready for us.

Our second snorkeling spot was a reef on the way back to town. We hand fed the fish and were surrounded by hundreds of them; big ones, little ones, all sorts of them. Just beautiful and a wonderful way to spend the day.
