About San Blas Sailing (Est.1997)
San Blas Sailing was founded in 1997 by Bernard and Jean-Charles…
Since 2009, San Blas Sailing is part of Nativa Tours, a Tour Operator recognized by the Panama Tourism Authority (ATP). This now allows them to book other excursions in Panama – in addition to San Blas – or to book one of the “packages” developed by the Nativa Tours team.
The offices are located in the heart of Panama City, 10 minutes from the Albrook domestic airport. 3 languages are spoken, including French, English and Spanish.
All our sailboats belong to their owners (only VIP One, Nikita and Jivago have a crew) who live on board and will be your guides during your cruise.
Due to lack of infrastructure such as marina, dock, mechanic, gas station, shops, water, etc … no sailboat is offered without a crew. Sending food and beverages by plane from Panama City requires organization and contributes to a large part of the running costs: however, this isolation saves the authenticity of the place and drives away mass tourism!
San Blas Sailing supports various projects to help the indigenous Guna, including the Program for the Protection of Sea Turtles and other programs.
