Adventures & Activities

Remote and unknown to all but the most intrepid, Islas Secas is an idyllic base from which to undertake a true marine safari.

There are countless Panama activities and adventures to choose from. Snorkel or dive amidst the aquatic wonders of the Gulf of Chiriqui, explore the biodiversity of Coiba National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, fish the storied waters of Hannibal Bank and Isla Montuosa, or get up close with a migrating Humpback whale in the waters around Islas Secas. Our dedicated Adventure Concierge is an expert on the varied possibilities and will help you select the Panama activities that will connect with yourself and with nature in its purest form.


In waters famed for their extraordinary fishing, who better to lead our fishing program than legendary angler Carter Andrews? Serious anglers love our proximity to Hannibal Bank and Islas Montuosa; newcomers appreciate the patient guidance of our knowledgeable staff.


Islas Secas’ true wonders reveal themselves below the water, where the diversity of marine life quickly becomes evident. Our onsite SCUBA instructor and dive boat will help certified and novice divers alike on their marine safari quest.


Panama is the only place in the world where humpback whales migrate from both the Southern and Northern hemispheres. Every year these welcome visitors put on quite a show for our guests, who thrill to get up close with these majestic creatures.
