We visited the tour desk on Wednesday asking to book a transfer to Panama City for the Saturday morning. We were given the information and asked if we could pay by card but we could not so we went to get some money from the ATM. There was a problem with the ATM so we couldn't book on Wednesday. The...

We had a blast with the crew. The deep boarding was a true adventure, like waterskiing underwater at a pace you can observe the sea life. We did 2 excursions and we got an extra go at deep boarding both days. The tour of the neighboring islands and snorkeling were also quite good. The second tour was a bust due... More

We were staying in Punta Caracol, a slightly far location compared to others. Because of that, I called and wrote 2 emails (website and direct email) to confirm that the location was not an issue for doing the activity. Even further, on our arrival to Bocas del Toro, we step over their office to get for the 4th time verbal... More

Had a great tour day, despite the rainy weather. Alex and Esteban our tour guides/driver were so friendly, and deep boarding was so much fun! One thing I would suggest, is maybe include a drink/beer within the tour, I didn't want to pay an extra $10 for lunch, but would have been nice to have something included. Great staff at... More

We enjoyed our experience. Booked it from our hostel and was picked up by Undersea Tours at our dock on Solarte Island. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Sloth island and the dolphin watching were okay. Zapatilla was beautiful. The snorkeling was decent. Lots of free time to explore the island and snorkel. We hiked to the other side of... More

We booked the tour with Moses and his brother, and went a full day. Zapatilla, sloths, dolphins, deepboard and snorkling: we've done it all, drinks and food included (pasta). It was nice until jellyfish starched us during the deepboarding activity, which is why I and my family were not able to enjoy it as much as we would have done... More

No complaints about the guide or the captain of the boat, who were both friendly and knowledgeable. Booked the whole day tour for $50, which was expensive for what you got. It should have been a half day for a third of the cost. To be fair we did everything on the itinerary, seeing the sloths, the dolphins, Zapatilla, deep... More

We got promised a LOT Of things. But Dif not get close to everything. When we asked the lady in charge why, she attacked us and called us liers. And the tour itself was nothing special.

We did have a really good time this day, enjoying the beautifull islands. However you book a snorkeling tour, do not higher your expectation too much. If you are really into scuba diving, this would be a fun expierence too, only this activity is only 15-20 minutes. Later on, you will go snorkeling as well and see beautifull nature. The... More
