Panama’s coastal waters are filled with all kinds of tropical fish and marine life. Coral gardens protect small colorful fish, while sea cucumbers and starfish move slowly about the ocean floor. Snorkeling tours allow travelers to jump into the water and watch these incredible creatures. Knowledgeable local guides bring tour participants to the best snorkel spots and equip them with snorkels, masks, and fins. All you have to do is look down and enjoy the view.

This tour combines snorkeling with a speedy twist. Instead of swimming around the corals, your boat will tow you along as you hang on to a specially designed board. On a deep board tour you’ll see huge schools of fish gathered around coral reefs. The underwater landscape off the coast of Bocas del Toro is varied, and the water is a bright, emerald green.
