Coiba Tour Schedules – Departure Dates

Since we partner with locals, we avoid separating them from their families on important holidays, so we don’t go to Coiba on Panama’s Mother’s Day (8 Dec); Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year; We avoid Carnival and Easter weekend.

If you wish to plan ahead for your vacation and Coiba trip: Tides are good the weeks of new and full moons (low tide mid morning) and also just before and up to the first and last quarter moons (low tides in the afternoon). But please contact us!
