Cayo Zapatilla One Day Tour

Bocas Town

On your way to the island you’ll keep an eye out for dolphins gamboling near your boat. Your tour will also make a stop at Cayo Coral so you can do some snorkeling. Cayo Coral is renowned as a snorkeling site – it has amazing coral reefs and huge populations of tropical fish. In the clear Caribbean water you’ll see shapes and colors of fish that will make any aquarium seem tame.

Your boating tour will continue past the mangrove shores of Zapatilla Island. The tour guide will point out some of the island’s idyllic beaches. Zapatilla is uninhabited, except for a healthy population of sloths.

This is where your tour group will get to try deep boarding, an activity that combines snorkeling and water skiing. You’ll go underwater in snorkeling gear, while holding on to a specially designed plastic board. This board will allow you to coast through the water as the boat pulls you along. Afterward you’ll have lunch on the island and a period of free time – you may choose to explore the island’s hiking paths, relax in the sand, or do some more snorkeling near the beach.
