Since 1998, Surfer's Paradise has run boat trips out to the world-class waves located off of Panama's breathtaking and largely undeveloped region of Chiriqui on the Pacific Coast. Located on a private island overlooking the Sandbar Break (one of the best and most consistent breaks in the region), we are just a short boat trip away from a variety of left and right surf breaks. Whether you're an experienced surfer hunting for empty tubes, or a novice looking to learn to surf in a beautiful setting far away from the hassles of your local crowded lineup, we can find waves for you. There are over 12 surfbreaks to choose from with breaks going from beginner to advanced. Other activities include snorkeling, fishing and hiking to the island waterfalls.
