WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Isabel

Highlight of my trip to Panama

The tour was amazing! Andrew, the owner, is absolutely brilliant. He explains everything in detail - from photography to nature. I never felt rushed and had time to concentrate on taking some good shots with the camera. The equipment - boat as well as camera and lens - is in excellent condition! What I really appreciated was the fact that Andrew respects the animals and their habitat. Even if you are not into photography, I would certainly recommend the tour to see Panamas wildlife.

Gary & Michelle

Highly recommend! Wow! A Must-Do in Panama

This was one of the most unique and intimate tours I have ever experienced. Owners Andrew and Pauline were so knowledgeable on everything we saw and incredibly gracious and flexible hosts. Captain Johnny was all smiles and very talented at finding wildlife. The pictures we took were straight out of a National Geographic magazine, I have zero talent for photography but Andrew was so helpful, patient and a great teacher, I came away with so many outstanding photographs

We left with such an amazing good feelings.

Must do!

I found this tour browsing TA, and I couldn’t have been luckier! I had the chance not only to see my favourite animals up-close, but also to take incredible pictures of them :D
Everything from pick up to drop off was perfect, and Andrew is one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve met; you don’t want to miss out this experience!
Thank you so much for everything to the whole crew!

Family friendly

Our tours are best suited for nature loving Independent Solo Travellers, Couples and Families.

Children, accompanied with a parent, are very welcome, and encouraged to have a unique Wildlife Photography, Fishing or Kayaking experience with us.

Mobility Impairment friendly

Our boat was specifically chosen because it has a raised flat deck.  As the deck is at the same level as the jetty, it is very easy to walk on and off, and to be seated on a comfortable padded swivel chair. The boat is very stable and safe.
