By far one of the most popular day activities is a day long snorkeling and beach trip by boat. Very easy to organize with independent water taxis in Bocas. If you're willing to join others to fill a tour boat (8-10 people), average cost is $20/pp. If you are a group of 4 or more, we can recommend trusted boat captains to take you on a private tour. Perhaps stop by the Super Gourmet and stock up on delicious deli sandwiches and munchies for a picnic lunch at the beach

The most popular circuit includes Dolphin Bay (yes, you usually do see dolphins), Coral Cay (exceptionally beautiful reef, lotsa fish! Then lunch in one of the restaurants over the water) and then an afternoon sunning, swimming or surfing at Red Frog Beach. Including Zapatilla, gorgeous! uninhabited island, part of the Bastimentos National Marine Park, will increase your fare to $25/pp. Day Tours are also available to Boca del Drago, Starfish Beach and Bird Key.
