Coiba Island & Cerro Hoya Tour Schedules – Departure Dates

We are glad you are planning dates. Due to COVID-19 and rehabilitation of infrastructure, no one is allowed a permanent camp yet, but we can camp for 2 nights or 3 even for a price (two boats need to go for setting up and breaking off the camp).  We are minimizing the camping trips for 4 to 6 people, but we can do 8 too. The camping trips have 1 night in Heliconia and 2 nights on the Coiba camp. You will be back around midday in Heliconia B&B.  The trips are scheduled with the best tides. Ask us if you prefer camping.

We continue to offer our Coiba Bahia Honda trips! This now popular package has 1 night in Heliconia and 1 night in a fisherman’s village (with air conditioning) on an island in Bahia Honda at 30 minutes from Coiba. With this tour, if weather permits, we will be back in Heliconia around 4 pm. If weather is windy, we rise early to return earlier in the afternoon.

Both tours snorkel in 5 reefs and do 2 walks. The camping has a mangrove tour by boat as extra.

The very long daytrip (9 hours) we only offer upon request and most often for birders only walking and no snorkling. We provide several other day trips within Mariato District (we are NOT in Santa Catalina), including Cerro Hoya National Park, Mangroves by foot or by boat, Tidal Pool Adventures, Garden short trips or Observation courses. We hope to entertain you for more beside the Coiba trip!

We partner with locals and try to avoid separating staff from their families on important holidays. This is why 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 also don’t schedule Carnival and Easter weekend because they tend to be more crowded than we like.
