Description:

What better arrangement can you get than having your dive center, hostel, and living space all in the building that is directly over the ocean.

The perfect buyer would be someone who wants to retire, continue to dive, give courses, and operate a no stress business.

One thing we liked about this place is the various seasons: crazy busy high season, a smooth middle season and the slow season that allows us to take vacations and fully enjoy the laid-back Caribbean life style.

We have a compressor that could take nitrox, a local 25 ft panga (local type boat) that has just been transformed into a real dive boat (not yet photographed), 48 wetsuits, 20 BCDs, 34 pairs of fins, 26 quality snorkel gear including rash guards, dive computers, course material, website, social media and a stellar reputation. We are strategically located in the middle of town where all the action is.

Our passion for diving and the marine environment brought us to do things very differently from our ‘eco’ dive briefings, to the way we lead our dives. We also earned unique credentials such as Green Fins and Blue Certified all of which has created a niche clientele looking for a more meaningful dive experience. We actually have fun with our clients.

The hostel/guest house has an owner’s private space, 6 rooms each with private bathroom, a large kitchen for the restaurant, a shared kitchen for backpackers, large deck and dining area where guests enjoy a beautiful view and spectacular sunsets. There is a manager/cook person that has been with the guesthouse for ages is willing to stay on.

If you want to up it a notch, there is room to grow all 3 businesses: dive center, guesthouse, restaurant; all have the necessary legal documents and licences.

We are located in the Archipelago de Bocas del Toro, Panama on the beautiful island of Bastimentos. The community still has a true laid-back Caribbean atmosphere and pace of life - there are no cars, only sidewalks and footpaths, and of course boats. Life is good! 

We are willing to stay on as long as it takes to have a smooth transition and, if necessary, train the new owner for the  ‘eco’ part of the operation. We also hope we could continue to work with the new owner on an as needed basis and would offer a more than excellent deal.
