Diving Coiba Island

Coiba Marine Park is a top Panama diving spot, an incredible experience that draws beginners and experienced divers alike from around the world. The marine park is a remote marine preserve 14 miles off Panama’s southern coast. 

Coiba Diving Marine Life

Coiba is teeming with a diverse range of unique marine wildlife. With over 760 species of fish, 33 types of sharks, 20 species of whales and dolphins, and more coral reefs than Panama’s neighbors in the eastern Caribbean, Coiba is one of the most unique diving locations on Earth.  

This diversity of marine wildlife exists in this region due to the Humboldt Current which delivers cold, nutrient-rich water toward the surface that makes it possible to sustain the rich biodiversity.

Why Scuba Coiba

Diving in Panama is one of the few locations in the world where both northern and southern humpback whales migrate to give birth and teach their calves to swim and dive. It’s not only whales, however, who understand that this area is a safe refuge.

Other marine animals such as hammerhead sharks and giant manta rays can often be spotted in season within the safety of the reserve area.
