Enjoy some of the world’s best adventure and exploratory diving in the Gulf of Chiriquí around Coiba Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Observe the fascinating and dynamic underwater world of the Tropical Eastern Pacific, an opportunity to encounter some of over 760 species of fish and 33 species of sharks including the schooling scalloped hammerhead.

Dive sites range from calm, shallow, protected inshore reefs, islands and break rocks, to the high voltage diving on deep pinnacles and sea mounts. The sites offer encounters with a great variety of marine life, and also to observe behavioural habits and witness the symbiosis between many species. Most dive sites are littered with cleaning stations which attract many pelagic visitors, giant fish, turtles, mantas and shark. Between May and November keep an eye out for migratory visitors such as humpback whales, orcas, sperm whales and several species of dolphin.

An adventure for the more experienced divers. 

MV Yemaya sleeps 16 people in two master cabins on the forward upper deck, each furnished with double beds. Along with a further six cabins, located on the main deck, each with three quarter and/or single beds. All accommodations aboard have plenty of natural lighting and views of the ocean provided by large picture windows. All are well laid out and very clean and comfortable.

Should you wish to explore the country further after your liveaboard, Panama offers a range of exciting things to see such as the Panama crossing, beautiful beaches, islands, rainforest with fantastic birdlife and diverse architecture, all steeped in history. Take some time to visit the Soberania National Park for its birdlife and the Chagres River to meet the local indigenous Embera people.
