With a profound respect for the rich and diverse environments that we visit, our guided trips combine great people, great food and great places. We run these trips in partnership with our friends at Fluid. Your experience will include a focus on skill acquisition, the natural history of the area, cultural and environmental awareness, small group sizes and a whole lot of fun and exploration!! We will camp, snorkel, bird watch and live amongst this pristine jungle environment.
Day 1 – Depart Santa Catalina early morning via boat launch and local captain. Travel 90 minutes along the Pacific Coast to Isla Coiba. Register at the ANAM Station and tour the Natural History Museum. Take a short paddle to a secluded bay to set up our base camp. Enjoy an afternoon snorkel right from our own beach with the potential to see rays, sharks, turtles and puffer fish. Our camp is often visited by capuchin monkeys, herons, kingfishers and hummingbirds. Finish the day with a tasty meal, a beach-side fire and explore the unimpeded night sky.
Day 2 – After a hearty breakfast and searching for signs of visiting night life, we set out for a day of paddling. Kayak past a swamp mangrove, before stopping in to explore Mango Beach where you can beach comb for hidden treasures and visit with the Howler Monkeys, black hawks and osprey. Next stop, Isla Granito de Oro to snorkel amongst the diverse species. Finish the day with a paddle back to camp and a well deserved meal and some relaxation before exploring the dusk activity and night sky.
Day 3 – After breakfast we will break camp and paddle back to ANAM station where we will have opportunity to enjoy the facilities, hike, bird or relax before heading out by boat to access one last snorkel spot that we could not access by kayak..possibly beautiful Canales Afuera! After our snorkel and lunch we then return back to Santa Catalina in time for an afternoon siesta, surf or in time to catch your bus out of town to continue on your adventures.
