My family of 4 took a private boat tour of the surrounding islands from this company. Our boat captain/guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave full justice to timings everywhere he took us. We saw several corals, star fish, other fish, several beautiful islands en route and visited the beach on Zapatillas island. On our way back we saw mating of the sloths on one uninhabited island, which was a unique experience. Pricing was reasonable. I would very highly recommend this company to any travelers visiting Bocas and seeking to do a private boat tour.

We wanted to support a locally owned business when booking a tour of the wonders around Bocas and so glad we found Boteros de Bastimentos! Captain Boy gave us a brilliant day of snorkeling, sloth sighting, and beach lounging, and then was a great contact to have other days for short water taxi trips between Bocas Town and Bastimentos. He has a wealth of information and stories to share about this fascinating place.

Edgar, the owner piloted the boat out to Zapatilla Island. He spoke English quite well. He was polite and pleasant and a skilled boatman. We saw nice small fish in the corral the walked along the lovely island. On the return we had a real treat as he took us to a restaurant and many beautiful fish while we swam among them. He also showed us a sloth and many starfish and was an enjoyable person. I highly recommended using his services.

We had Dimitri as our boat captain and tour guide. He was very eco friendly and careful around the dolphins, and pointed out animals as went went around the islands. He was a great driver and got us to the different locations before the other groups arrived so we had some time to enjoy the island alone! He was great and I highly recommend him for water taxiing or touring!
