Tour Description

Start your day at the Isla Colon marina, in the capital city of the Province of Bocas del Toro. From here you will be taken to our first stop, the beautiful bay of Bocatorito on San Cristobal Island, a mangrove nursery for bottlenose dolphins and their calves.

From here you will navigate to Crawl Cay to jump in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea and snorkel around a great diversity of coral reef surrounded by multicolored fish.

Then, you will enjoy a delicious Caribbean style lunch before getting back in the boat to navigate through the mangrove-rimmed islands of Bastimentos National Park, toward the entrance of the trail that takes you on a 20 minute walk to Red Frog Beach. As you go, our guide will try to locate the elusive Strawberry Poison Dart Frog (Oophaga Pumilio), endemic to this island.

You will be back in Isla Colon at around 4:00 pm.
