Tiger Rock, a favorite of everyone on the BDC team, is the tip of a seamount that rises from the seafloor and protrudes only a couple of meters above the ocean’s surface. Descending past 30 meters, it is the perfect location to deep-dive with the comfort of Nitrox. It is an hour boat-ride from Bocas, and is appropriate only for certified advanced divers. BDC instructors will determine the best days to visit Tiger Rock, based on maritime conditions. As you circle the seamount during your dive, you might pass schools of dolphins, blacktip or silky sharks, and an extensive number of bottom dwelling creatures that hide in the crevices of the wall. You can also see gorgeous corals through the clear blue water at this impressive site , and it could be your best dive in Panama!
Escudo de Veraguas, a 1.3-square-mile island located off the Caribbean coast of Bocas is a full day adventure for certified, advanced divers. Surrounding the island are 247 acres of amazing coral reef with 55 species of coral. Home to about 120 Gnobe Bugle native fishermen, the island boasts stunning beaches and spectacular diving in its nearby waters.
