I booked the snorkelling tour through another company (Habla Ya :http://www.hablayapanama.com/ecotourism/bocas-del-toro/snorkeling/) and had no idea that the main operator of the tour are these guys. I learned that on the day of the tour. Our tour guide and the captain were quite nice and friendly, and we have no complains about them. However, the itinerary based on which we had... More

They treated me like family at least it felt that way because I was in Bocas Town two weeks and they always called me to let me they had a trips available. I couldn't beat the prices and excellent service anywhere else. I went to Cayo Zapatilla which is the longest excursion that cost about $50 includes all equipment, transportation,... More

I booked the tour with the expectation of the doing the deep board and the snorkelling around Zapatillas. However, I was a bit worried because I had never done any of them before. Both the instructor and the captain were quite friendly and helpful. Both of them offered me advice as they noticed my lack of experience even with the... More

If you want to go to Zapatillas Island, I would definitely recommend you to go with this company! Of course there are many others that offer a day trip with about the same program, most of them have a lower price. But nevertheless, you should go with Under Sea tours. Paying a bit more for such a day trip is... More

★★★★★ The "Under Sea" guys are top! Friendly, cooperative and not too expensive. We've made the Zapatillas tour, which is a 7 hours boat trip, where you will see dolphins, incredible landscapes -and if your are lucky- even sloths! The best: Deepboarding! This special activity makes a lot of fun! Tim&Elli

I went on the Zapatilla tour with my partner and daughter. As promised, it lasted from 10 until 5 and we really felt like we'd had a full day out - our daughter looked ready to fall asleep on the boat coming home! You definitely get your money's worth. The tour started with a visit to dolphin island and we... More

My sister, 7-year old niece, and I had the opportunity to participate in an UnderSea tour to Cayo Zapatilla 2 one week ago. We would like to highly recommend UnderSea Panama: from the detailed information they provide at their informational booth to the interactions with all the tour guides, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My niece was particularly thrilled about... More

We went on this tour June 8th and had an EPIC time, at first we were hesitant about the all day, $49.00 /person trip but after talking to MABEL at the booth, decided to go ahead with it. There was 12 of us in the party, ages from 25 to 65+ and everyone had a great time. All different languages... More

We did the 49 dollar deepboard tour. Luckily the group was not big and we had a very friendly guide and boatsman. Our first stop was to see dolphins, but we didn't get to see them (they gave us a 70 percent chance to see them, so this can happen). We were promised to stop and look for them on... More

Hi! First of all, we want to apoligize about not having that day fresh fruit during lunch time, the instructor forget it at our office, and about the current that couldn`t let you do deepboard or snorkeling at Zapatilla, well is up to nature and we can`t control it the night before it rains a lot and it rains during...

we did the deepboard snorkeling trip. It cost us $49/person for the day. Caught bus in town, headed to dolphin viewing area first. this was ok... you occasionally saw a fin or one pop up, but a bit underwhelming for most of us. then we headed over to sloth island. this could have been boring, but luckily a little guy...
