COIBA

Coiba is Spectacular. The most unique and exotic snorkel/diving destination in Panama is here at Central America's largest Island. Once a penal colony until 2004, Coiba has been preserved with all flora, fauna and marine life intact.

Humpbacks come through July until November. Whale sharks are present all year but most active in our dry season from December through May. Turtles, manta rays and an incredible variety of tropical fish are usually at play every dive.
