What people are saying about Puerto Colón

Very courteous and entertaining staff. Everything that was promised was also like that and beyond. The vegetarian lunch option on the 5 hour tour was good and we were given some information about the marine life too. But it was mainly the motivation and the spirit of the crew that made this trip so great. I would definitely recommend.

Very nice, well organized tour. Very friendly team and information in various languages. We did the 3 hour tour. There were sandwiches and various drinks (alcoholic and soft drinks).
