Coiba Tour Schedules – Departure Dates

Access to some reefs and trails depend on the tides (the difference can be as much as 5 m/17 ft), so some days are better for visiting Coiba than others. We also have to contemplate the Covid-19 Pandemic but provided life is getting better, below we have identified the best departure dates for the coming season  (starting November 2020 and into 2021) as listed below.

Since we partner with locals, we avoid separating them from their families on important holidays, so we don’t normally 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!
