Sailing tours in Paradise

A pessimist complains about the wind….an optimist expects it to change…….a realist adjusts the sails. Our perception of our surroundings color our own vision of life. Our choices determine the course we navigate through life.

Join us on an epic sailing adventure from Cartagena, Colombia to Portobelo, Panama via uninhabited islands in San Blas or vice versa.

On An Island In Paradise

San Blas Adventure boat Cartagena to Panama

On our island hoping sailing adventures we visit beautiful mostly uninhabited islands through the San Blas Archipelago of Panamá.

These remote coral atolls with their coconut palm lined white sandy beaches are surrounded by pristine coral reefs with an abundance of sealife. Where you can walk off the beach and after a short swim, enjoy snorkeling through an aquatic wonderland.

After a day of swimming, snorkeling, playing and relaxing under the shade of the coconut palms. There is nothing better than a beach bonfire on a remote uninhabited island.

Join us on one of our voyages from Panama to Colombia or visa versa.

The Legend Of Pelorus Jack

Pelorus Jack was a Risso’s dolphin that was famous for meeting and escorting ships through a stretch of water in Cook Strait, New Zealand, for 24 years between 1888 and 1912.

Photographic records indicate that Pelorus Jack was a Risso’s dolphin, a species that’s incredibly hard to find in New Zealand. He was often described as white or albino.

Pelorus Jack was first seen around 1888 when it appeared in front of the schooner Brindle when the ship approached French Pass, a channel located between D’Urville Island and the South Island. When the members of the crew saw the dolphin bobbing up and down in front of the ship, they wanted to kill him, but the captain’s wife talked them out of it. To their amazement, the dolphin then proceeded to guide the ship through the narrow channel. And for years thereafter, he safely guided almost every ship that came by. With rocks and strong currents, the area is dangerous to ships, but no shipwrecks occurred when Jack was present.

Jack was last seen in April 1912. There were various rumors connected to his disappearance, including fears that foreign whalers might have harpooned him. However, research suggests that Pelorus Jack was an old anima, so it is likely that he died of natural causes

Boat trips from Cartagena to San Blas Panama

Ave Maria Sailing trip Panama to Cartagena

We are ready again to depart Cartagena, Colombia and sail to the San Blas Islands. Where we will stay for 3 full days and enjoy the paradise that it is.

Snorkeling and exploring the brilliant diverse coral reefs with their abundance of marine life.

Chilling in hammocks under the shade of the coconut palms which line the beaches of the island we visit. Of course with an ice box close by for refreshments.

We will enjoy an all you can eat beach bbq buffet. Followed by a bonfire in the evening… That’s just how it is in the quaint Caribbean paradise.

Each day we visit a different, just as beautiful island paradise. Then on our 3rd evening in San Blas we will raise anchor and sail off into the sunset towards Portobelo.

With half of 2018 now past and a little time to reflect on what the season thats past has brought.

I am happy to advise that during our trips Sailing from Panama to Colombia or from Cartagena to Panama;

  • Less than 5% off of our passengers have experienced seasickness.
  • We have seen way more dolphin activity. Including much more frequent visits by dolphins while anchored in San Blas.

Thank you to all the great people who have enjoyed these sailing adventures with us. It’s been a pleasure to meet you all.
