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
