Day 1 – Let’s go to Paradise!
We will organize the shared 4x4 Jeep to take you form your hotel or hostel in Panama City to the coast where a speedboat will be waiting to take you to your sailboat in San Blas. Once onboard, the captain will welcome you with a light breakfast, give you the boat briefing as you get to know your home for the next five days, and then you are ready to star exploring paradise! While you swim in the crystal clear waters the captain will get you stamped out of Panama. As these are the islands closest to mainland, they tend to be the most touristic so it’s a perfect time to buy artisan souvenirs and enjoy a barbecue or traditional food prepared by the Kuna community.
Day 2 – San Blas islands
While having breakfast on board, weigh anchor and sail to the next set of islands. You have arrived at the central cay! Anything is possible! Play volleyball, football, and enjoy a coco loco at the island bar. Each boat is different, so on each trip, the crew will tell you the plan for the day. At night, lie out on deck and watch the stars while sharing stories with friends. Relax or party it up at a bonfire with music on the island.
Day 3 – The most exotic islands await
Your last stop is at the easternmost exotic islands! These are the most remote and best for snorkeling, exploring, taking a dip in the turquoise waters, or simply relaxing in the sand. You will spend the day enjoying paradise while the crew prepares for the open sea. You will depart for Cartagena in the evening of this day (weather permitting).
Day 4 – Open Sea
Wake up at sea! Relax and enjoy as you cross the 200 nautical miles of open ocean. If you are lucky, you may get a visit from a family of dolphins swimming along with the boat. Chill out and listen to music, play cards, or read a good book. On a clear night, watch the shooting stars! If it is cloudy you can get a glimpse of the amazing bioluminescent plankton glittering in the boat’s wake. Hopefully your crew will catch a fish or two and you can have some fresh sashimi or ceviche.
Day 5 & 6 – You have arrived!
Open Sea & Welcome to Cartagena! You may arrive on day 5 or day 6 of your trip; it all depends on the sailing conditions and the time of year. Wind, waves, and currents can affect the duration of the crossing year round. Bienvenido a Colombia! Your sailing adventure ends in the colorful Caribbean city of Cartagena! No long bus rides to worry about! Hang out and organize your luggage while your captain takes care of getting you stamped into the country. After saying goodbye to your captain and crew you will disembark with your memories and new friendships in the port of Manga, it is just a 5-minute taxi to the walled city.

FAQ 5-nights sailing trip

FAQ 5-nights sailing trip

Will we get to sail?

The windy season runs from mid-December to April, where strong winds are common, usually making it a great time to set sail! Outside of windy season, especially during June, July, and August, winds can get quite quiet which can make it difficult to sail.

It is important for captains to sail on schedule, which means there are times where they are forced to rely on the motor when the winds aren’t complying in order to do so. While the captains prefer sailing, safety and comfort are our top priorities for both the passengers and the boat. If sailing is important to you, we recommend booking a smaller fiberglass monohull.

What will the weather be like?

It depends on the time of year! May to November tends to be the calmest time of year to sail between Panama and Colombia. You might intermittently get brief rain showers, but it usually clears up within a couple of hours or so. December through April is a windy season which usually provides excellent conditions for a sailing adventure! The tropical climate of the Carribean San Blas makes it an excellent place to travel year round!

What is there to do in the islands?

Anything is possible! Explore paradise, play volleyball, soccer, snorkel, kayak, take a dip in the turquoise water, meet the locals, buy souvenirs, relax or party it up at a bonfire with music on the islands. The possibilities are endless!

Can I bring alcohol & Snacks?

Yes! Three meals a day, water, coffee, & tea are all included in the price of the trip, but we always encourage passengers to bring their own snacks, beverages, and alcohol as well. Coolers will be provided for you to store and chill any beverages you bring.

Do the boats cater to special diets?

All of the boats can accommodate vegan, gluten free, pescatarian, and vegetarian diets. There is a 25 usd fee to accommodate all special diets (15 usd to the chef for the added effort and 10 usd to the boat to buy ingredients).

It is important to advise us of any allergies or dietary restrictions when finalizing your booking, failure to do so will make it difficult for the crew to accommodate your diet. Please note, you cannot change your diet once the tour has begun.

Do I need a visa or yellow fever certificate?

You may need a visa depending on the country of origin of your passport. We recommend asking your embassy if you are unsure. The yellow fever vaccine is only required upon arrival to Panama or Colombia if you have been to Brazil in the past six months.

Can I take a surfboard or bicycle?

All our boats can accept surfboards and bicycles, but they do charge a fee to bring them onboard. There may also be additional costs to transport them to and from Panama City.

Can I travel with my pet?

It depends on the boat! Only boats that arrive to or depart from Puerto Lindo, Panama can take pets. If you are interested in taking your pet with you, let us know beforehand and we can ask the captain!

What do you wear in San Blas Islands

Pack light! You are headed to the beautiful Caribbean islands of San Blas; so bring comfortable light clothing good for the beach and don’t forget your bathing suit!
