Panama may be one of the only places in the world where you can Dive Two Oceans in One Day. Other places where this is possible are in the cold Patagonian waters where the borders of Chile and Argentina meet or in South Africa in a spot where it is possible to drive from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a few hours. Because of Panama’s thin width, going from coast to coast takes less than an hour.
Doing the Dive Two Oceans in One Day in Panama will definitely give you some serious scuba bragging rights, since very few people will ever be able to claim they have done this! One dive will be done in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Which goes first depends on the weather conditions. On the Pacific Ocean you will depart from Panama City on a 30 minute boat ride to Taboga Island. Going to the Caribbean Sea takes an hour and a half to reach Portobelo, then an additional boat ride which can be 10-15 minutes depending on the chosen dive site.
Pick up will be done at 7 a.m. from any hotel in Panama City with a return time of 6 p.m. Dive Two Oceans in One Day is a full day tour which includes lunch.

Important information: divers must be certified with a licensed diving certification to be able to do the Dive Two Oceans in One Day. It is recommended to organize a group of four divers to have a more accessible price since the single diver price is quite high. Price is per diver for the total number of divers in a group. 4 divers will have to pay each the same amount to reach the total of the tour. Single divers can contact us to confirm when there are other divers doing the tour in order to join and pay a lower rate.
