Exactly what we wanted: sea kayaking, lots of snorkeling, camping on the beach - perfect! Snorkeling at the camp beach was great so we could be in the water as much as we wanted. We wanted tons of snorkeling and that's what we got.

Michael and his crew ensure you maximize your time on and off the water. Plenty of paddling time so we could get a sense of the Island's unique yet diverse flora and fauna. Balanced with ample time to relax too! For me food can make or break a camping trip. Adam (our trip leader) and Michael went all out making... More

From there our group of 7 went on kayaking expeditions and had lots of opportunity to snorkel in the warm tropical waters. The reefs were teeming with beautiful colourful fish, healthy coral...

We spent 8 days in the Santa Catalina area. Took some surfing lessons from Michael and spent the first couple of days learning to surf. Michael was so chill and positive. Proved that you're never to old to play in the surf. Spent the last 6 days on a sea kayaking trip to Coiba Island. Had a fantastic time with... More

Adam was just great with our kids and especially our 6year old Sean. I highly recommend Fluid Adventures! We are already thinking about our trip next year and we hope to include... More

Good shop right at the beach. $10 per hour for a kayak or paddle board. $25 for a half day. Adam was nice and really fair - I thought I would kayak for a half day but only did around an hour becuase the swells were too big and he refunded the difference with no complaints. I would go back... More

Liz was a fabulous guide....from her tireless spirit, nutritious and delicious backcountry cooking, anecdotes about nature, and tour of the stars....she is an unbelievable captain. The snorkel spots were... More

We spent 2 nights on Coiba. 3 families, 12 people. 6 kids, 15 years old and under. Liz and Adam were our guides. They were fun and made it educational. It was a highlight of our Spring Break vacation in Panama.
