PANAMA DIVE SITES

Located on a chain of sixteen volcanic islands 18 miles from the Lodge and features excellent diving with clear waters and a variety of marine life. 

One of the most pristine places to go scuba diving in Panama is Isla Secas. This destination is part of a national marine park which has kept the area underdeveloped. Unlike other countries, don’t expect to find lots of tourists competing to go to the same sites. Most likely it will just be your boat diving on the site.

Coiba Marine Park is the considered the best panama dive sport for big marine animals and it is located 90 minutes from our dive center.

Coiba is a UNESCO world heritage site that is protected because of its incredible biodiversity. It is connected to the Galapagos islands in Ecuador and Isla Coco in Costa Rica by an underwater  mountain chain.

The reefs of Coiba is the largest reef system in the Eastern Tropical Pacific.  Depending on the season divers can see exotic species such as whale sharks, several species of shark including hammerheads and manta rays.

The presence of an infamous prison on Coiba Island deterred the development of the region, and after the prison was shut down, conservation agencies recognized the area as one of the most ecologically important in Central America. 

The area has 10 + dives sites.
