The wildlife and views from the tower are incredible, but the natural history lesson alone is worth the climb. All life zones known to the tropics, from the mountains to the coral reefs below the ocean's surface are visible from the Canopy Tower. This vantage point above the forest's canopy gives you a bird's-eye view of the entire archipelago.
Lunch is a typical Panamanian dish, salad, and homemade cookies served at our dock. For the tour group we have either a chicken or vegan option. Make sure you let us know when you make your reservation which option you prefer.
We include fresh-squeezed juices, refreshing rainwater, sodas, Panamanian coffee, and a selection of teas as part of the tour. We send rainwater in reusable water bottles to quench your thirst on the trail and in the ocean.
The kayaking part of the tour departs from Tranquilo Bay's comfortable facility. Our our staff will handle the preparation, maintenance and portage of the equipment. We provide snorkel gear for the tour so you may explore the underwater garden that includes tropical fish and vibrant coral reefs. All you have to do is paddle and absorb the breath-taking scenery.
For those new to kayaking, we will give you a lesson to familiarize you with the equipment and techniques to prepare you for your adventure.
