Owner description: ATV/Quad Rental Flying Pirates - ride an ATV, with or without a guide, through a private, off-limits-to-everyone-else, 1,500 acre rainforest! Your day begins in the heart of Bocas town, where you will be picked up and shuttled to our secondary location just outside of town. We offer surf racks, for those of you wanting to hit the waves while you are out, and all of our bikes come with lock boxes attached for your cameras and cash. Wind your way out of town until you hit Bluff Road and just keep right on going until you reach our property. The Flying Pirates trails will take you through the jungle, then alongside pristine beaches, all perfect for a pit stop and some swimming. Rock Beach, La Piscina and, the newly accessible Blue Lagoon, are all gorgeous natural water formations perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Explore the caves at the tip of the island, and return through Monkey Trail. If you rev your engines a little bit, the monkeys might just yell back at you.

We planned to hire the ATV's for 2 hours, but the people at Flying Pirates already told us they would not expect us to be back in that time. It was indeed extremely good fun, so we stayed in the jungle for about 4 hours and had one of the best experiences of the whole vacation. I would definitely recommend anyone who goes to Bocas to rent these ATV's and get out to the wonderful (and huge) property of Flying Pirates on Isla Colón!

We hired the ATV for 4 hours, it was spectacular. We visited the most beautifull beaches: clean and fantastic ocean views. We also drove in the jungle; an amazing experience! Only the clients of Flying Pirates can visite the farrest part of Isla Colon. Its definitely worth seeing! The crew is friendly, helpfull and the ATV's are well maintained. Everyone can and should hire an ATV to explore the island. Fantastic!

All I can say is do this, you can thank me later!! Had an absolutely fun/amazing time plowing thru the trails that Flying Pirates create for you. You can access beaches with not a sole around while taking in all the sights and sounds. Im from Las Vegas, land of entertainment, and haven't been this entertained in a long time! Steve and Rhonda run the company and are awesome people. I rented for 4 hours for 60 bucks and was able to explore a lot of the terrain, but you may want to go longer so your not rushed. Just as tempting as it is, DO NOT ride on the beach or you will be fined heavily. Other then that, have a blast!!

We rented from Flying Pirates 3 times. Twice we rented the quads, which were the bomb! Rented for all day and explored the island, especially the jungle. Was the highlight of our trip. The last day, we rented the jeep and went to Bocas del Drago.
Very nice peeps at Flying Pirates and we will definitely be seeing them again!
HIGHLY recommend this place!

What a perfect and fun way to see Colon Island, we ended up going 3 times in one week!
Really affordable too.

Obvious stops included Playa Tortuga, Playa Bluff, Bocas del Drago and Starfish beach, but there are lots of little trails into the jungle to explore on foot if you want to see howler monkeys.

Also worth a visit on the way home: the Smithsonian Institute does free guided tours on Thursdays and Fridays from 3-4 and 4-5 (you'll see caymans, sloths, night herons, Island frogs and get lots of interesting info).

Rhonda and Steve who run Flying Pirates are lovely people too, so kind and helpful. Be nice and don't accidentally lock your keys in the box...
