In the Community

We love engaging children of all ages and inviting them into our wonderful world under the sea. We help them experience the uniqueness of the beautiful beaches, reefs, and mangroves surrounding Bocas while they learn to snorkel, free dive, and even scuba.

Ask us about our young leadership program in which young adults with leadership potential are trained, mentored, and encouraged to be active participants in our dive shop in Panama.

We are also very proud of our quarterly Coral Reef Conservation Dive. Four times a year we supply our staff and volunteer divers with free gear and air while they help clean a designated area of our delicate marine ecosystem.
