As of 8/30/21, Isla Contadora no longer requires visitors to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result in order to come to the island.

Snorkeling/ Spearfishing Trip Descriptions and Difficulty Ratings:
By far the most popular ½-day tour is the island-hopping/water activity tour; a half-day spent boating between destinations where you stop for water activities, i.e., snorkeling, spearfishing, etc. It’s a private tour, so we can visit several beaches to accommodate guests who wish to explore by land (time permitting). (Con mucho, el más popular excursión de ½ día es el / la actividad de agua recorrido viajando a la dos islas; Es un tour privado, por lo que podemos visitar varias playas para albergar a los clientes que desean explorar por tierra o mar.)
End of tour – Relax at day’s end to enjoy lunch at a local restaurant or beach bar. Basic snorkel gear is included. Spear gun equipment is not included but rentals are available. (Se incluye equipo de snorkel or pesca. Spear fishing equipo no está incluido, pero es disponibles para alquiler).
What makes this tour so unique and memorable is that the guide is in the water leading each guest to enjoy new experiences that they might otherwise hesitate to try without someone with them; for example, spearfishing in relatively shallow water or drift snorkeling with the current around an island.
- If snorkeling, we will need to know the shoe size of all snorkelers who will require snorkel equipment. If children are snorkeling we will need to know their approx. weight for outfitting them with life jackets.
- Tour difficulty rating: moderate to difficult – depending on the snorkeling/spearfishing expertise of the guest. We empower the guide to make changes in the snorkeling/spearfishing destinations to match the physical comfort & safety of guests.
After your fishing trip, you will have time to enjoy the amenities of a beach club or relax on the beach before boarding the ferry back to Panama City.
