San Blas Sailing
San Blas – Panama Canal – Panama City
Here's an audacious way to explore not only the Indian populated islands but also the most remote coves of this gorgeous archipelago in Panama. Your captain (most of the time the owner himself) will moor the sailboat in the most crystalline, turquoise waters of the Caribbean: Hollandes reefs, Chichime's lagoon and between other unique spots.
Snorkeling the virgin great barrier coral reef, kayaking freely around the keys, meeting remote Kuna Indian families, cooking a BBQ grilled fish on the break for lunch or dining aboard when lobsters and giant crabs with good Chilean wines is the ordeal.
Sailing softly from an island to another (sometimes accompanied by a dolphin family) is a real relaxing experience as this part of the archipelago is totally protected by the great reefs and offers calm waters.
The fleet offers catamarans and monohulls from 38' to 62' exclusive of shared boats, 3 to 14 day trips offering a large range of pricing. Exclusive boats for 2 to 8 guests (quote on request). Consult us.
Fleet: Catamarans, Monohulls
