Rarely Seen

The dolphins are rarely seen. Paying the price to go on a boat trip to see the dolphins is a gamble.

Amazing Snorkeling
Feb 2020 • Couples
The spot was one of the locations are catamaran tour took us to. The water was so calm and it was so easy to float along and snorkel. We saw the most amazing coral at this location! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Disappointed
Feb 2020 • Couples
We only saw one dolphin which was chased up and down by 10 boats! When we have seen dolphins before in other countries like the phillipines the dolphins have been swimming in and around the boat. Here however the boatmen seem to lack respect, play loud music and drive them away.

You can see some dolphins that is very cool. Kinda overpriced but like isn’t every tourist thing in Bocas overpriced?

Dolphins!!
Nov 2019
We saw several, fins, tails, dorsal, and it was just great. The tour guide was quiet but he found us what we were looking for. We made a stop in Zapatilla and it was a nice place to spend time for a coffee.

Dolphins were there and were beautiful

The dolphins were present in several groups but disturbed by a few a-social boats. These stupid boat drivers raced with extremely high speed and loud beat music in between the dolphins, very dangerous for those and not done, lack of respect.

See dolphins
Aug 2019 • Solo
Was on one of the many boat tours from bocas town. Stopped in the bay for about 15 min. Saw a pod of three dolphins that would intermittently pop up. Lots of other boats trying to see then which takes a way from the experience but pretty cool if you really want to see dolphins in nature

Great visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
We went to Dolphin Bay by boat and got to see lots of dolphins. It was fascinating to watch them come up several times then go back down for a minute or so and then reappear, I highly recommend.

As a part of our tour, we stopped to see dolphins in their natural habitat. These beautiful animals seem so carefree and relaxed.
