Great crew, plenty of food throughout and amazing sites. More than worth the $$!!! One of our friends booked their tickets for the wrong day and they were still able to accommodate them vs sending them away while we all boarded.

The Red Cat catamaran tour was outstanding. The vessel is clean. The food and drinks are well stocked. But the crew especially Kady and ida are just magnificent. Well worth the money.

We had a great day. It was easy to book and because we are staying outside of Panama City we just caught an Uber to the meeting point at the yacht club. We checked in straight away and boarded the yacht at the end of the dock. The police check your passport when you go on the wharf - I can’t understand why... it seems they are just checking that you have a passport ! The boat was purpose boat for cruising and it’s clean and new. Even the toilets are clean and function perfectly. There was fresh cut fruit and cake and pastries available as well as coffee, beer, vodka and rum. My wife is a wine drinking so she was a little disappointed with that but if that’s the worst of your troubles then you’re having a pretty good day. We motored to a bay at the back of Taboga Island and swam for about an hour then moved around to the town side of the island and were brought ashore by tender. We looked around the town although there’s not much to see and ended up at a tiny cafe where we had a beer for a dollar. Then at 1.30 pm the tender took us back to the boat where lunch was served. There was chicken in some sort of white sauce and 4-5 salads. It was great. Then we motored back to the yacht club. It was a great day. The staff were all cheerful and very charming. We’d go again It was brilliant !

This is a tour that should not be missed. It is a beautiful fun filled time spent on a really nice Catamaran and the entire crew is super nice and very attentive to guests. I loved the ladies and their interaction with each guest that made us all feel extra special. I love the safety and care they take of the boat and ensure that everyone is having a great time. The Island of Taboga was so relaxing and beautiful I didn't want to leave! I will definitely be taking this tour again on my next trip to Panama!

From beginning to end this was the best part of our trip! The crew was the best and we made great new friends. Food and drinks kept flowing. Swimming in the Pacific Ocean was a great experience for my family and Taboga was a beautiful of the beaten path experience as well. Worth the money and more. A DEFINITE MUST DO

From start to finish this was an excellent trip. We were greeted by crew personnel on time at the appointed location. Once on board we were briefed on the day's trip. Being a boating person I found the boat clean and well maintained designed for a group tour. Because of no wind we motored out to Taboga Island. We did not swim at the first swim stop as my wife and I both had colds but most everyone on the boat went swimming. Lunch on board was very good and plenty of food as we motored to anchor off the beach of the town. We transferred to the skiff and spent the free time in walking into town walking the main street. WE stopped in a little eating establishment and had the best Pineapple Shake I have ever tasted which cooled us down. Getting back on the boat was a challenge as the wind came up suddenly but the transfer went smoothly. We were unable to sail back to Panama City as it was too windy but the boat took the waves in stride and the group and crew danced all the way. This was a fun trip, one I would recommend to anyone.

This was a fantastic tour! The crew made the trip fun, the drinks were plentiful and the lunch was tasty. The view of Panama City from the ocean was mesmerizing, I would recommend this trip to anyone looking to spend a few hours out on the water.

It was my birthday and we had a great time on this excursion.

This is probably one of the best excursions I have ever taken on a trip. The crew was simply amazing, views were spectacular, the food was great, the music was playing, the drinks pouring... I would definitely book it again if I am ever back in Panama. My only preface, this is an ADULT oriented tour. I would not take children younger than 15/16ish, nor boring old folks like my parents -- love you dad! that don't like loud music.
