Panama Day Trip by Seaplane

Isla Coiba, a “must visit” destination off Panama’s Pacific Coast

Isla Coiba National Marine Park is renowned for its pristine beaches, clear waters, and abundant marine life. This marine reserve has been rated by National Geographic as one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. 

The park comprises a group of 38 islands. It is home to 760 species of fish–including 33 shark species–and 20 species of whales and dolphins. Coiba has one of the largest coral reefs on the Pacific Coast of the Americas.

During your day trip, you’ll be accompanied by a bilingual naturalist guide. Once you arrive, you’ll enjoy world-class snorkeling, bask on remote beaches, and explore the island. LANDED can also arrange scuba diving, tours to the Isla Coiba Prison Penal Colony, or hiking Isla Cobos is search of wildlife.

These day trips can begin in the morning in Panama City and have you back in the city in time for dinner. Without a seaplane, you’d need to sail two days from the mainland, on top of ten hours of driving, an overnight stay in Santa Catalina, and four hours of open-water boat transport.

Isla Escudo de Veraguas is an eden of white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and vibrant wildlife. This remote Caribbean island is located approximately 10 miles from the coastline. It has no permanent inhabitants.

The island is a wildlife sanctuary for dozens of threatened and endangered species. This is vital habitat–home to the elusive and critically endangered three-toed pygmy sloth.

Isla Escudo is ringed by 250 acres of coral reef, with at least 55 species of coral. These waters provide a natural labyrinth for snorkeling. We can also arrange stand-up paddleboards and immersive experiences with an expert naturalist guide or biologist.

Reaching this natural sanctuary can take up to three days if you’re coming from Panama City. By seaplane charter, the island can be reached in one hour.
