Boat Tours - Boating Providencia and Santa Catalina - Colombia

Make a complete circle of Providence and Santa Catalina in a boat. Group tours leave every day for a morning at sea, visiting Crab Cay, Lovers Bridge, Morgan's Head (a large rock that, from the right angle, resembles a human head in profile), Machineel Beach and other sites. Unfortunately, all the tours seem to show up at the same places at the same times.

You can also charter a boat to take in the above sites—and even more. Ask to be taken to places others don't go—like the best snorkeling spots. The advantage is that you can arrive when the group tours aren't there, and thus more peaceful. Share the cost with other travelers, and it turns out to be the better option.
