Panama scuba diving and travelWhether is snorkeling or tank diving, the diving enthusiast is bound to find his appeal in any of the various waters of Panama. Panama offers both, the lively and colorful clarity of Caribbean style Atlantic; the vast and mysterious Pacific Ocean full of large marine species, exactly where Panama scuba diving and travelBalboa discovered it; and the jungle encircled Gatun Lake, bed of the Panama Canal.

The isthmus of Panama, running on an east-west axis, finds the Atlantic Ocean on its northern shores. Starting from the west, the first dive site is Bocas del Toro. The scuba diving in and around Bocas can be enjoyed throughout the year, with most of the dive spots no more than one hour boat ride from Bocas town. The water temperatures is very tropical and constant, so full or even short wetsuits are not required. Water visability varies from one dive spot to another, and is always dependent on weather conditions. The months of September and October are traditionally the better months, due primarilly to more suitable climatic conditions. During this period there is less rain and wind, allowing for clearer water conditions.
