Snorkeling Tours in Panama
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 introduces you to the Guna, one of Panama’s indigenous groups. They have full control of the white-sand islands and blue waters of San Blas and govern themselves independent of the rest of Panama. On this tour, you’ll visit two of the 365 islands that comprise the archipelago.
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.
Do you want to try scuba diving but are unsure about plunging into a full certification course? If so, this is the course for you. Discover Scuba, operated by the Panama Dive Center in Santa Catalina, lets you scuba dive without a certification. It’s a great way to learn to use scuba equipment, try diving, and get a quick introduction to the ocean.
