Good people, good driver. Was very easy to organize. Got a round trip to red frog marina, they dropped us off for the day and picked us up at night. Driver was waiting at the dock right when he said he would be. Would recommend.

We did the Dolphin, snorkel, red frog package. Miguel our guide spoke some English so that was good. We did see dolphins and that was nice. The snorkeling was just ok its off a boat and so you must be able to swim well. Lunch was overpriced and nothing special. Then red frog beach ......terrible you have to pay $3... More

This company do not want to offer tours so I recommend using Undersea Tours who do. When we arrived at the office, the only staff member was sitting in a side room watching football (Ghana in the World Cup) and when we asked about a tour for the next morning he barely took his eyes off the tv, then shuffled...

Similarly to other reviewers here Jampan caught our attention because of the 7$ RT for the transfer to Red Frog (Bastimentos). We took the first boat to the island (which is awesome) and returned to the dock on time for the 2.30 boat back to Bocas. Mind you, this is not a 'deserted' dock. There is a Park desk where... More

We did the tour of Dolphin Bay, snorkeling in Crawl Cay, lunch and then Red Frog Beach. It was amazing to watch the dolphin's swim!! Our guide didn't leave until everyone was ready. Then we went snorkeling, the coral was really pretty and there were some fish to check out too. The snorkeling gear wasn't the best, though. We brought... More

After reading some of these review, it is my understanding that Jampan does more than just island transfers, which is what I used them for. The price of $7 round trip to Red Frog Island seemed reasonable, as others were telling me $10. I took the 10:30 departing shuttle to the island and was told that they would return for... More

Thanks to all the other reviews for Jampan on Trip Advisor. As result of reading them, we chose them to take us out on a private tour for the day. Cost $120.00 for three of us. Esteban came to collect us at the dock of the Tortuga Suites Hotel which saved us the time and effort of getting into town.... More

You cannot do wrong doing this trip... More

I was really excited about doing this tour and was not disappointed. It was just me and my boyfriend - who didn't want to go because he thought we would not see dolphins...was he wrong. Although our guide told us this was not mating season when there are 10 times more dolphins, we did see quite a lot. I was... More

My friend and I had the occasion to take a tour with Jampan. We started with Dolphin Bay and ended with Red Frog Beach. Being squeamish of boat tours, I am thrilled to report that it was beyond my expectations. The distances we traveled were broken up into manageable chunks, and the snorkeling was the best I have experienced. Our... More
