Boat Panama to Colombi
It’s not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

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.

Boat Panama to Colombia
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.
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
An irrelevant though fabulous tale.
We love our dolphin friends that regularly visit us during our sailing voyages from Panama to Colombia
