This tour offers travelers the chance to snorkel along the Caribbean coast of Panama. You'll snorkel at some of the best spots near Portobelo, and in the process will enjoy beautiful scenery both above and below the water.
The tour begins with an 8 AM pickup from your hotel in Panama City. From here, you'll drive to Portobelo, which will take around 1.5 hours. Once you arrive in Portobelo, you'll meet up with your boat captain and head out to the snorkeling site, which is about a 10-minute boat ride away.
The site is at a colorful coral reef, which begins at about 3 feet (1 m) underwater. This section is a good place for beginner snorkelers to get comfortable breathing and looking around beneath the water. The site also includes a 50-foot (15-m) vertical wall, which offers an interesting opportunity for more daring snorkelers. While snorkeling, be on the lookout for a range of tropical fish.
After this excursion, you'll eat lunch and then take a short drive around Portobelo. You'll then drive back to Panama City and will reach your hotel between 4 and 5 PM.
