Granito de Oro and Coiba Island

Mar 26, 2019 - National Geographic Quest


“Granito de Oro”: It’s a small little island set around its borders in perfect white sand and just enough trees for our beach chairs. We retrieved the kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, and many more went for the snorkeling gear. What was witnessed was nothing short of incredible. We saw large schools of fish of all kinds of colors and shapes. Later in the afternoon we sailed toward the bay of Panama and came out to the weather decks looking for wildlife.
