We sailed with Daniel for 3nights 4 days and had a wonderful time! Daniel was very kind and attentive to what type of things we would like to do. He showed us beautiful places to snorkel, views of the land, phosphorescent algae and dolphins just to name a few. The boat was safe and comfortable.
The food on the boat was amazing, Daniel is a fantastic cook! He cought fresh Spanish Mackerel made amazing ceviche and planned a fun evening beach BBQ.
My teenage daughter, husband and I would highly recommend Daniel for a sailing adventure. We now consider Daniel a friend and know you would too if you decide to sail with him for a few days!

Dolphins, nice amazing colourful snorkelingspot and nice food. The Tour takes one day and you "sail" the sea with only a little motor. It's so much nicer (the snorkling is so much better) and more relaxing than the cheaper motorboat rides with the locals (i did both). Just a nice expeariance and probably the best thing i did at bocas!

This excursion was every bit as good as we had hoped it would be! There were only six of us on a boat that could hold up to twenty, so we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. We were there in late May, the beginning of the rainy season, but we had a beautiful sunny day until the very end, when we barely beat the rain back to Bocas. We've never seen such beautifully colored coral and fish, and the water was warm enough that my wife, who doesn't like cold water, had no complaints. The captain, a German who speaks several different languages, was as laid back as they come, and a great storyteller! Paying $45 for a whole day of sailing, snorkeling, and dolphin viewing was the best thing that we could have done in Bocas. Highly recommended!!!

We did a couple snorkelling excursions with other companies while in Bocas, and this is by far the best experience! We sailed far away from the crowded spots, and got to snorkel two amazing reefs -- one with very colourful coral and starfish, and the other with lots of colourful fish that swam right beside us. The dolphins were very playful when we saw them, and got closer to our sailboat than the motorboats. Sailing on the boat was very relaxing, and you could lie down and enjoy the view. Lunch was included in the price and was tasty, and the drinks were reasonably priced (and cold)! You could also bring your own drinks and put them in the cooler which was nice.

Marcel took us to some of the most pristine coral snorkelling we'd ever seen in our lives. We loved the whole day.
