Me and my wife's first time sailing and snorkeling. They Captain and crew were wonderful and very nice. The boat was great. We loved the rum punch. We saw several dolphins up close and loved the snorkeling. We had a great time and will do it again next time we visit Panama.

Glad to hear that you were able to find some hermit crabs and a star fish. Sometimes the sea creatures really make you have to hunt them down! However, most times they are pretty easy to find. I am truly sorry though that you slipped and injured yourself on the stairs. We will definitely take your feedback into consideration to ensure customer safety for the future. Get well soon!
