Our Boats, the best of eco-diving in Panama:
Our professional dive boats were built in 2014. In order to offer the most fascinating eco-diving in Panama, we chose extremely seaworthy, smooth-riding fiberglass 'Panga' boats. Both of our boats are able to navigate the most unusual and elite dive spots in the area, so with Bocas Dive Center you will see an astounding underwater view of sharks, manta-rays, plus a wide spectrum of magnificent marine life. Having two boats allows us to take up to 20 divers at a time and to visit the most exclusive locations for eco-diving in Panama.
Chica and Grande also allow BDC to simultaneously offer expeditions for both beginning and experienced divers. Our boats are always stocked with oxygen tanks, breathing regulators, a first aid kit, spare diving gear, an ice chest, and refreshments that include soft drinks, water, and fruit.
Powered by a 200 horsepower Yamaha 2-stroke engine, this 24 foot boat is environmentally friendly and allows us to promote eco-diving in Panama. Chica is equipped with a VHF radio. She safely accommodates up to 7 divers plus staff and diving equipment, in addition to all of our extra supplies on board.
Grande, at 31 feet, is the fastest dive boat in Bocas. It is powered by 2 200 horsepower Yamaha 4-stroke engine and equipped with a VHF radio. Grande easily and safely holds up to 13 divers, plus staff, diving equipment, and all of the supplies we keep on board.
