A Wonderful Experience - It was a windy, cool day and we were the only couple on Captain Jacob's boat, but we STILL had a 5 bubble experience. It was a bit too chilly to swim, but we found dolphins and turtles and Jacob took us on a grand tour of the bay.... We stopped at Shell Island, where he took the boat to the beach so we would not even have to get our feet wet. Could not have asked for a more personable tour guide.

Best tour in PCB! - Captain Jake and Bosun Willow were the best guides we could ask for. Although the water was too cold to get in, we had a great time. We we able to see alot of dolphins and turtles. The stop at the private beach was the cherry on top. We throughly enjoyed our trip and will be booking again next time we are in Panama, with hopefully warmer water. ​

Worthwhile Trip - Captain Jacob and Willow were great! Got us right out to the dolphins. Saw a massive pod of 30. A little too wavy and chilly to jump in with them. Then a nice trip to see turtles and a stop at shell island to explore. A great two hours on and in the water!

Amazing excursion!!!! - This is our 2nd year doing this excursion and it’s amazing. Jacob and first mate Willow are the best! We went to all the spots and saw so many dolphins, sea turtles and one manatee (rare). This is our favorite thing to do in PCB. It’s for young and old alike. We will do this again next year as well. You get to see so much of PCB from a different perspective.

Dolphin tour - The boat captain (Carter?) was very knowledgeable. He took us to a wonderful spot where we saw dolphins jumping. When we got our fill, we then went to the shallows and looked for and found a sea turtle and sting wray. It was cold so when we got to shell island, we did not swim.

Fun Swimming with Dolphins 🐬 - Super fun “swim with dolphins” experience today. Captain Stan found the dolphins right away and did a great job of getting our family in the water near them. We were within a couple of feet of dolphins multiple times. Highlight of our trip to PCB for sure. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a unique adventure!

Wonderful Spring Break - Amazing time! It was a little windy but Captain Stan was great and took us out and we saw so many dolphins! One even came up to the boat to say hello! My son braved the cold waters and jumped in a few times to swim with them! Such a great memory! We will definitely do this again! Well worth it!
