I. Trip Report      

1. Cloud and Forest, 7 nights with Adrift Adventures Staff - Testimonial, November 2008


Hello Javier this is Kissle.  I just wanted to personally thank you for the great trip.  Ben, Dustin, Eric, Myke and I all agree that the rivers we ran with you were among the most memorable we have yet experienced.  The whole week was very exciting and enjoyable.  Every day a new adventure was awaiting us.  I can't imagine a more productive way to experience adventure in Panama than the way you hosted us.  I would and will reccomend Adventuras Panama to any of my friends, family or clients who are thinking of Central America as a destintaion.  

I also wanted to compliment your personal character for being unnaffraid to take a chance and follow your passion, adventure.  I think it's pretty cool that you are bold enough to take a chance to do something great with your life.  So many people are unhappy with the lives they live because they have abandoned their passions.  Adventuras Panama is a great outfitter and I hope you continue building it up and up, there is no limit. 

Thank you,

Joshua Dayne Kissle Kopinsky

2.  Chagres Challenge in Helicopter - August 3, 2008

Well, this trip version is what I called cheating on "The Challenge".  But with style !

Two executives of an engineer firm with its eye on the Panama Canal current projects, decided to give a surprise present to her co-worker.

They arrive to the helicopter hangar at Albrook Airport, and she was alreary surprised for an unexpected ride.  It was a great aerial view of nearby Panama City and Canal.  Them, it was excited to fly over the jungles of Chagres National Park almost touching tree canopies over the hills crests.  

But her biggest surprise was to land in the middle of no where and finding a raft with guides ready to take them across all that vast jungle that they just over flew.

It is amazing that in only an aproximate 18 minute chopper ride you can reach such a remote place that requires a full day hike to get out, if you know your way out. Or a pleasant float toward Madden Lake.

1.  Adventures Panama exhibits in USA

For the second consecutive year we will be participating in the biggest USA Outffitter Association Marketing and Management Conference: American Outdoors Confluence.  In our booth  we will have a  window to what Panama has to offer.

Last year, the generalized perception among participants were that Panama will become the next adventure destination of choice.   

2. Adventures Panama raise its standards even higher

Not only with top of the line new gear but also by training guides in Wilderness First Responder.  Congratulation Nelson and Luis for passing all courses and become the first Adventures Panama certified guides on this specialized course.  

3. Wellcome Meike !

For couple of months now we had been honored to be choosen by Meike Steinert from Hamburg, Germany as the company she selected to full fill her academic requirement working abroad.

Meike it is not the first german student we had had at our office and we are so optimistic about this almost untouched market that Adventures Panama now has a phone number in Hamburg.

We took Meike along with the Adrift Adventure group and here is her testimonial:

Thank you very much for letting me go on the trip! I really enjoyed the trip!

It was great to see the other faces of Panama, as well as getting more experience on the water.  The camping, the water and the whole nature is just amazing!

Also the group I went with was very crazy, but then also so much fun! They had a blast too!

The group as also I were impressed by how nice everybody who "served" us was all the time! And the guides from Aventuras Panama are really good guides too.

Thank you so much again!

Dustin and  Kissle confronted a dilema when they went back to their ducky after scouting this rapid at the Chagres River.  The group had left  them with only one paddle on it ! It didn´t take them a second to figure out it was a break away paddle... a piece for each. 

And they both had a great swim when confronted a rapid they didn´t have enogh to paddle with.
