Dolphins Bay, Crawl Cay and Zapatilla Cay Expedition
Tour DescriptionBocas del Toro is a colorful, Caribbean-style archipelago with incomparable biodiversity; a unique and privileged destination for the observation of fauna and flora.
This full day tour begins with a short boat ride to Laguna Bocatorito or Dolphin’s Bay, where it’s almost guaranteed to spot the semi-permanent population of bottlenose dolphins that graciously will play around the boat. The dolphins of Bocas del Toro seem to have a special predilection for this bay, due to the abundance of small fish, crustaceans and squid of its waters.
After this, you will visit two of the most important snorkeling points in the area.
First, you will make a stop in Crawl Cay – one of the most popular snorkeling spots in Bocas del Toro. This tiny island is surrounded by lush coral gardens with an abundance of tropical fishes, coral heads and colorful sponges.
Then, a visit to Zapatilla Cay, located on the southeastern of the Bastimentos National Marine Park – 30 minutes’ boat ride from Crawl Cay.
Zapatilla Cay is considered the most beautiful island of the Bocas del Toro Archipelago and offers visitors pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters and some of Panama's most attractive coral reefs - with lots of tropical fish, and crevices full of lobsters, crabs, eels and an immense amount of tiny sea invertebrates.
