Sea Kayaking Adventure Vacations in Panama

The abundant coasts of Panama, host to more than 1500 islands, offer both the beginner and the seasoned sea kayaker boundless opportunities for exploring, island-hopping and touring! Our sea kayaking vacations in Panama are based primarily off the Pacific coast of the Veraguas and Chiriqui provinces, where the abundance of water provides a lifeline to a particularly diverse and abundant host of plants, animals and mammals.

We offer a number of sea kayaking pre-scheduled multi-day trips to the islands in Golfo de Chiriqui and Laguna de Chiriqui, as well as Coiba. Our pre-scheduled sea kayak trips are typically a week long, expedition-style trips, meaning that once we begin, we carry all the food, water and gear that we will need for the duration of the trip. Our sea kayak guides are highly experienced and well-trained to take care of every detail, both on and off the water. And the gear that we provide has been painstakingly selected with your comfort and safety in mind. We have all the logistics nailed down to get you out there where you can explore and play!

Although we offer there great pre-scheduled trips, the best possible chance for getting absolutely everything you want out of your sea kayaking trip is to actively participate in designing your itinerary. We have a professional commitment to offer you an amazing trip at an affordable price, and the cost is variable, depending on the length of your trip, your choice of accommodations and your dining preferences.

Sea Kayaking Seasons in Panama

The rainy season generally lasts from May to December. In the morning, the sky is clear and the weather warm. It usually begins to rain between noon and 2pm and the rain can last into the evening. Nights are particularly cool at higher elevations.

The dry season generally begins in December and lasts until May or so. On the Pacific slope, where we base the majority of our adventures, the dry season is warm, with lots of sunshine and very little rain other than a light mist called Bajareque (found at higher elevations). However, on the Caribbean side, the dry season is less distinct, as it still rains occasionally in the afternoons and evenings.

Golfo de Chiriqui National Marine Park Beginner Sea Kayaking

This trip is designed for beginning paddlers. Instruction will be provided on paddling technique, self-rescue, navigation, packing and other elements of expedition sea kayaking. Generally, we will not paddle long distances (only about 4 to 6 miles per day) in order to have time to snorkel, hike, fish and relax on the beaches.

We run this trip during the dry season (December to April). During this time, the wind and swells are usually light on the Pacific side of Panama. We can run the trip during the rainy season as a custom trip. During the rainy season, the swell and wind are usually more challenging and we have heavy rains late in the day into the night.

The Parque Nacional Golfo de Chiriqui, founded in 1994, is a 14,740-hectare marine park that encompasses two-dozen islands and their surrounding waters. The park is home to howler monkeys, leatherback and hawksbill turtles and has an abundance of bird life. The park is located off the Pacific coast of the Chiriqui province, not far from the major city of David. Although not terribly remote, the area is not heavily traveled. Once you are out in the islands, you may see an occasional fishing boat and maybe some motorboats, but generally we will have the islands to ourselves.

Isla Coiba National Marine Park Intermediate Sea Kayaking

This trip is designed for experienced paddlers because of the isolated location, remote beach landings, strong currents and the possibility of waves and wind. Depending on the skills and abilities of your group, we tend to limit distances per day to 8 to 10 miles so that we have enough time and energy to snorkel, hike, fish, and explore Isla Coiba.

We run this trip during the dry season (December to April). During this time, the wind and swells are usually light on the Pacific side of Panama. We can run the trip during the rainy season as a custom trip, but it becomes an advanced paddling trip because of the increased swell and wind in addition to heavy rains.

Isla Coiba is the center of one of the world’s largest marine parks and a UN World Heritage Site. Until 2004, Coiba was also home to a penal colony. The park itself, founded in 1991, is made up of 38 different islands and is home to the 2nd largest coral reef in the eastern Pacific. Coiba is the largest island in Central America (50,314 hectares) and the marine park covers 430,821 hectares.

The marine life is incredible in the park. There are orcas, dolphins, humpback whales, sea turtles, huge manta rays, tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks and much more! The beaches are nesting grounds for sea turtles, and the island itself is home to at least 36 species of mammals and 150 species of birds. Coiba is also home to several species of monkeys, crocodiles, and has one of the last concentrations of scarlet macaws in Panama and Central America. Around 80% of the island is still pristine rain forest. The presence of the penal colony in the past coupled with the fact that it takes a 2 hour motor boat ride to get to the island, means that the park and Coiba itself are largely untouched.?There is an ANAM (Panama’s park service) station at one end of the island and a police station at the former penal colony. Otherwise, the island is uninhabited and remote.

Out & Back Price: $2300 per person for 5 Days/4 Nights. $500 deposit required to book a trip. Deposits are non-refundable.Full payment due 30 days prior to trip.*Please contact us for special group pricing.
