About San Blas Sailing (Est.1997)
Some captains and first mates from the San Blas Sailing team:
Founded in 1997 by Bernard and Jean-Charles, San Blas Sailing is the the largest and more reliable sailing charter agency in Panama. After many years of sailing, they decided to stay in Panama. Due to an increasing demand for charters on this archipelago, they decided to gather all sailboats under the San Blas Sailing company and begin offering cruises. There were many obstacles but they overcame them all until finding a well -organized and reliable formula.
Since 2009, San Blas sailing is part of Nativa Tours, a tour operator recognized by the “Panama Tourism Authority (ATP). This will now allow you to make reservations as well as many other excursions within the Panama territory – besides San Blas – or to reserve any of the packages put together by the Nativa Tours team.
Because of the lack of facilities as marinas, docks, mechanics, gas stations, shops, water, etc…. no bare boating is offered. Sending the food and beverages by plane from Panama City requires an organization and contributes greatly to the operating cost: however, this isolation preserves the authenticity of the place and keeps away the mass tourism.
