My husband and I took our nieces to Panama as a present for graduation. The girls had traveled some but had never been on an expedition like the one we had with Blue Adventures Panama. To be honest, neither had we although we sport fish every available time we travel. We requested Carlos give us a day that he would most enjoy for a day off the coast. We started on our way to the Northern Pearl Islands, stopping to troll and catch a bonita and a dorado. Then we graced one island where the blue footed boobie's hatch their young before traveling back to the Galápagos for their adult life. After a delectable serving of yogurt and granola on a beach line, we headed to some snorkeling...well, sort of. We actually detoured to a dealer reef so that Charlie (mate and Carlos's son) did some free diving for our pompano ceviche. He also speared a few rooster fish along the way for a special at their restaurant they recently opened (Maagoo's Tacos). The second half of the day we traveled to a gorgeous cove for sandwiches and that delectable ceviche, along with a freshly chilled pineapple for desert. Everything we ate on our charter was hand prepared by Carlos and Charlie, as well as being eco-friendly to the waters of Panama. Carlos educated us on the fragility of the oceans and the coast of Panama. We saw first hand how the reefs are suffering from commercial fishing boats leaving remnants of their gear which kills helpless sea life. We were so thankful we had a crew that had such respect for their home. The honest and integrity of Blue Adventures Panama provided an experience of so much more than just a day on the water. Carlos and Charlie have a soul-driven passion for the sea which shines through in their work. We were thankful to be along for the ride. Our day ended with "popcorn" manta rays jumping and frolicking out of the water as we glided across the water. Dolphins followed us along our route, blessing our day from below. Our nieces were in amazement of such a wonderful day and continued their thankfulness throughout the rest of our vacation. Making an impact on adults is a wonderful accomplishment. Impacting the soul of a young mind and spirit will impact a lifetime for those girls. Well done, Carlos and Charlie!!! Well done! We ended our day with dinner at their restaurant, Maagoo's. Let's just say that if you miss Maagoo's, you miss the end product of the day we had. Maagoo's is there for all to experience whether or not they can book a day charter with Blue Adventures Panama. It is a MUST if you are in or around Panama!

We booked a day trip with Blue Panama in March 2019 and was not disappointed. There were 8 of us that spent the day with Carlos and Shaun. We saw dolphins and jelly fish on our way to Pearl Island. Pearl island was beautiful and full of shells to gather. Breakfast and lunch were spot on. Red Snapper was caught while fishing and lots of beer was drank. Carlos was very concerned about his guests and made sure everyone stayed hydrated and used sunscreen!! A great time was had by all.

A big thank you to my new friends at B.A.P. What a fantastic trip, they designed the adventure to suit me and my freinds and threw in some of their own flare. Carlos and his son are true professionals with plenty of personality. If you want to check out the Pearl Islsnds in style this is the way to do it. I look forward to our next trip out to the islands!

My wife and I chartered a boat for an extreme adventure in October. Carlos is fantastic. He has an incredible vision to see where fish are. Caught a number of large fish but more than that we had a great time boating and exploring remote islands. His on-the-boat ceviche was a special treat! You've got to go on one of his trips if you can! Worth every penny!

We booked a pearl islands tour through blue adventures panama. Carlos was first-rate. We were able to fish on the way to the islands, had a nice lunch, played with my family on a beautiful deserted beach, swam, toured the islands. It was an excellent purchase. Highly recommended. Carlos customized our trip based on what we wanted to do. High-quality people run this organization. You can't replace that. I'm a veteran traveler. I've booked excursions and trips all over the western hemisphere. The one thing that you can't replace is honesty in the person running the organization. That is what you get here, you will get a first rate trip from someone who is going to provide what they say they will. Excellent product, excellent boat, good people. I've been ripped off and purchased mediocre products that left a bad taste in my mouth many times. Don't let that happen to you. Book a trip with these guys. Imagine this, the boat is EXACTLY as pictured on the website. How many times have I seen a beautiful boat on the web and a piece of trash when I show up at the dock, more times than I can remember. Carlos looks just like he does on the site too. Imagine that, accuracy in advertising! My trip was actually June 1, 2017. But here I am more than a year later writing a review. I just came across their contact information and remembered I hadn't written one.
