Coiba Island Excursion

Panama – Coiba Island (4 Day Trip)

We will take you (or a small group) to Coiba Island, a 300,000 hectare National Maritime Park. The island was formerly a penal colony but is now a protected, pristine habitat and a refuge for all kinds of wildlife, including 147 species of birds, howler monkeys, crocodiles, lizards, and leatherback and hawksbill turtles. The underwater visibility ranges from 60-80 feet. Excellent birding, hiking, snorkeling, whale watching (seasonal) and relaxing on an untouched island. This is a fabulous experience!

Panama offers wonderful anchorages in quiet coves of uninhabited islands; explore natural parks only accessible by boat, snorkel at coral reefs or dive for fresh seafood. Take the launch ashore to sunbathe on a deserted beach then enjoy sundowners and a bonfire barbeque. Whatever your choice it will make for an unforgettable cruising experience! English speaking captain & crew are dedicated to making your cruise a memorable experience.

The best months for long distance sailing charters are November through June although most months are fine depending on what part of the country you are in. We can meet your group anywhere on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica in Golfito, which is a two-day sail, or choose a Panama departure. By taking advantage of departing from Panama, you can maximize your time at your desired locations ending your trip in Golfito.
