My husband and I had a blast on this excursion. The trip was very organized, check in at Balboa Yacht Club was easy, be sure to bring your passport, suntan lotion, hat, sunglasses & towels. The catamaran was very spacious with the most popular area being on the nets. It’s a little scary at first but once you’re settled on the nets, it’s very relaxing. The music and drinks were wonderful, it’s definitely a fun party boat. We made one stop in the middle of the ocean before getting to Taboga Island. At this stop everyone was invited to take a swim in the ocean, life jackets and noodles were provided. My husband is a great swimmer and said it was very refreshing. The excursion was definitely worth it to visit Taboga Island, it was beautiful and we were able to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for $15. They also have a restaurant with delicious Panamanian food & cute pineapple cocktails. However, it takes a while to get your food and we were only on the island for 2 hours.I definitely recommend this excursion, it was worth it.

The entire trip experience (Oct 29 9am-3pm) was very enjoyable. I booked via Trip Advisor for a nice discount: $75. The vessel & bathrooms were very clean & well-maitanied. The 6 member crew (plus 1 captain) were very pleasant and attentive. The snacks we're tasty, the lunch hearty, and the music & drinks did not stop flowing. The seas were too rough for one one of the island stops, but that just meant we spent more time at the sheltered island stop, which gave us more beach time, as well as an opportunity to walk-around the little town. The crew kept a vigilant watch when we stopped for a swim, helping guests with float "noodles". The guests were a nice mix of Panamanean families, couples and American groups. Even though there was moderate partying, it is suitable for families with children. There is plenty of shaded seating. Highly recommend it!

The boat itself was extremely comfortable and modern with delicious full body nets to rest and comfortable seats. It was extremely clean and relaxing.

The trip was amazing to Taboga including a dip in the water behind the island for ourselves. The whole time well selected music was playing and I everything was just the right amount of time. Docking to and from the island was fast and easy.

Crew was excellent and treated everyone well. Amazing time all around

We spent a wonderful day on the water with the crew of the Red Cat. There was good music, drinks, food and great staff to bring it all together. We swam off the catamaran and then spent a few free hours on the beach at Taboga Island. (Side note, my wife got a 1/2 hour massage on the beach for 15$) We will definitely do this daytrip again when we return to Panama city.

The sailing to and from the island was my favorite part of the experience. At one point one of the members taught us dance moves to several of the songs. The staff were wonderful. The ladies were helpful, enthusiastic and friendly. I definitely recommend this tour if you want a chill time away from the city. Also the lunch was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the macaroni salad. Lastly the restroom was clean ladies.

This was the second time we’ve done this trip. Large comfortable catamaran with a relatively smooth ride (obviously weather dependent). Comfortable covered benches and tables to sit at, and the four netted areas up front are popular areas to sit. Lots of standing room too.

Friendly and welcoming crew. Price includes bar, water, snacks, and a starch heavy lunch.

The first stop at the back of Taboga Island is our favorite. You anchor in a small bay and have 45 or so minutes to swim around these prestige waters and undeveloped side of the island. The second stop is a 2-hour stop at the island village. Meh, dirty beach and town that is still largely shuttered from Covid impact.

You return to the boat for lunch, and then about an hour “sail” back to the yacht club. This was our second times, both trips were by motor only.

Pluses: get to see Panama City by water, get relatively close to ships waiting to access the canal, extremely clean boat, and friendly staff.

If you are looking for loud music, drinks, people dancing, wild teens jumping from mesh to mesh, disrespectful to all, just running around the boat, this is your trip. If you want something more relaxed, for couples, with subtle music and a calmer day, this is not the trip to do. This can be a fun trip for the appropriate ages and expectations. Service is good, not great, food is meh but it can be fun for people wanting to get drunk and be a little wild. Our group contained 12 teens celebrating someone and they were really annoying, loud and nobody kept them in check. We were a party of 4 mid 40’s and had this kids running to and from theough the nets where we were relaxing. Needless tosay, every trip they did we would be bouncing. It wan’t one needed trip, it was 25 trips each running back and forth. This might be great for some, u fortunately although the idea is great, it was not for us.

Good Afternoon, thank you for taking the time on writing this review. I would like to mention that we advertise having animation and music, we have customers from different counties and ages, so we try to keep everyone together with a good atmosphere. Once you do the second stop at the lunch time, we put relaxing music so the sailing back suits after a day at the beach. During all the excursion we have part of the crew specifically watching customers, so it's very strange for us your comment regarding people been unchecked, but we thankfully accept your comments and we will try to get better. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations.

The on board team made this into a great trip. They got people animated, talking, even dancing!
The trip to the swimming spot is about an hour on the catamaran, then half an hour to jump and swim in the warm water. Then around the island to a beautiful beach, and an hour and a half beach time. Then lunch on board and return to the city. An idyllic day!

Hello! We had a group if 14 people from Oklahoma USA who wanted to spend a great day on the water while visiting Panama City. We booked the 6 hour Mega Catamaran the day before we went. It was one of the most memorable things our group did on aur vacation. The crew is amazingly friendly and helpful. They speak both English and Spanish. We had an adorable hostess from Venezuela..sorry I've forgotten her name...but we loved her! The swimming stop and island stop in Taboga were both exceptional. Lunch was delicious both on the boat and in Taboga. We had a blast! Go! Stop thinking about this tour and just Go! Terri - happy sailing vacationer.

This is the 4th time I have arranged for a full day outing on the Redcat for myself and 50 of my friends. We are all retired and live in Panama . The captain and crew always puts on a 5 star day. Very well organized and from the time of check in, to waving goodbye it is a full day of sun and fun. Lots of great music, dancing on deck and sun on the nets. The drink cups were kept full and lunch has gotten even better from years past. Thanks again to Paula and the Redcat family. Looking forward to an outing again next year. Panama Friends
