Package: 1 Day of Diving & 2 Nights in Santa Catalina
- Duration: 1 Days (approx.)
- Location: Santa Catalina, Veraguas
If there’s two of you (or three or four), this package is for you. It includes two nights in Santa Catalina, one day of diving (2 dives), the transport to Coiba National Park, all the equipment, the guide/instructor, and lunch (sandwich and fruit) on your diving day.
We ask you to meet us at the dive shop the day you arrive in Santa Catalina in order to try on your gear and finalize payments. Then we will send you to the hotel we will have booked for you. After a hopefully restful night, we will expect you at the dive center at 7.30 for the briefing.
The boat usually leaves between 8 and 8.30 in the morning and comes back at about 4.30. We do two or three dives a day. Two dives are included in the price. If you’d like the possibility of a third dive, please indicate so in the available add-ons. Note that the third dive is subject to weather conditions (especially in the rainy season) and costs an additional $20.
This package includes a basic private room (double, triple or quadruple, depending on how many people you are booking for). If you’d like to stay somewhere fancier, please indicate so in the available extras.
- 2 people: $430
- 3 people: $628
- 4 people: $826
- Hotel upgrade: $50 per person for two nights
- Premium upgrade: $80 per person for two nights
We do not guarantee a specific hotel, since it is subject to availability.
Daily entrance fees to the national park: $20 for foreigners, $5 for Panamanians and residents (this needs to be paid in cash).
Other Extras Available for this Package:
- Add a third tank per day of diving: $20 (subject to weather conditions)
- Get your Nitrox certification: $95 per person (requires you to come to the shop the day before your diving early enough to do the theory)
- Nitrox tank: $10 per tank (you must be a certified Nitrox diver)
Booking this package:
When you are making your online reservation, to ensure availability, please select your first day of diving on the calendar, not the day you arrive here. Also, indicate your preferences regarding beds (singles or doubles) in the special requirements section. We will begin looking for a hotel and confirm your reservation as soon as we have found suitable accommodation for you. Once everything is confirmed, we ask each diver to fill in our waiver (the link will be sent to you with the confirmation).
