If you are thinking of having your first experience scuba diving or getting your diving license then Bocas del Toro may be the perfect place to do it. Our archipelago has warm waters- between 27 and 29 degrees – which makes the experience particularly comfortable, especially since you have to spend a lot of time in the water doing exercises when learning to dive.
The dive sites around the archipelago create an ideal place to learn to dive because the waters are typically very clear- between approximately 12 meters of visibility- and thus allow even the most timid of divers to relax under the sea and feel comfortable in this magical new blue environment.
As a dive location, Bocas is popular for its colorful coral formations and for having three shipwrecks that you can visit. Additionally, it has a plethora of different marine species such as southern rays, spotted eagle rays, lobsters, nudibranchs, parrotfish, barracudas, squid, starfish, crabs, trumpet fish, seahorses, puffer fish, etc. When luck is on your side you may also encounter nurse sharks and manta rays.
