This BAHIA FOUNTAINE PAJOT offers 6 double with private bathroom and toilets en-suite. Though she is not a recent production, she offers lots of space with her large cockpit and generous cabins.

The Nikita catamaran, which has been sailing since 2004, is the perfect manned sailboat for the Guna indigenous archipelago. This huge and impressive catamaran is the ideal one to get close to the turquoise waters of the San Blas beaches.

She is fast and powerful when sailing; in addition to its great balance and stability, thanks to the easy handling of the Genoa headsail.

    Fernando / Niño did a very good job. Boat was great, places we went amazing. Food was excellent. It came fresh from the sea and Labor made nice dishes of it. Snorkeling gear could get a check -up / update.
    It was a great experience we would not have missed!

    Bonjour Melody j’espère que vous allez bien?! Tout d’abord je tiens à vous remerciez pour votre flexibilité malgré les imprévus. Et ainsi de nous avoir donné la possibilité de profiter de ce séjour mémorable. Ces quelques jours à bord du Nikita ont été incroyable et la compagnie de Niño et de son fils Leiber n’a fait qu’amplifier notre bonheur. Premièrement se sont très bonnes personnes et deuxièmement ils ont été aux petits soins pour nous👌🏻🙏🏻! En résumé nous avons passé un fantastique séjour et nous regrettons de n’avoir pas réservé quelques jours de plus😢! Nous n’hésiterons pas à recommander votre agence si nous entendons que des personnes souhaitent se rendre au Panama! Je vous souhaite tous le meilleur à vous et à votre équipe! Au revoir

    Hola Jaime. Antes que nada queremos agradecerte por TODO absolutamente todo el apoyo que tu y tu grupo nos han brindado durante este proceso.

    Todo fue genial! Barco, itinerario, comida y sobretodo “niño y ronnie”! Muchas gracias. Recomendaremos el servicio a nuestros amigos

  • Steve & Anne Muntz – July 2015

    Hi, We just wanted to rave about our great trip with Nino and Roney on the Nikita! Anne and I had an amazing, relaxing, delicious and fun-filled four days cruising around the San Blas Islands. We\’re telling all our friends about our great trip and we hope your business grows, but only enough that the islands are not too cramped with the tourist crowds. Thanks so much!

  • Jorge Guzzi – Junio 2015

    Hola Eunice, Quería agradecerles la excelente atención del cap Niño, y su ayudante ana, nos hicieron pasar unos días excelentes, son muy buenos anfitriones, siempre dispuestos para lo que necesitáramos.

    Gracias, y prometemos volver.

    tripadvisorOur family of 4 had a fabulous 3-day sailing experience with San Blas Sailing, and if you are thinking of chartering a boat and sailing the San Blas Islands, look no further. San Blas Sailing is a well-run company and exceeded all of our expectations for a great trip to the San Blas Islands. JC was our very experienced captain and Roney was his wonderful assistant. The islands are gorgeous, we enjoyed learning about the Guna people, and JC and Roney were incredible hosts and went out of their way to make the experience enjoyable for us. At the end of the trip, Roney even took my daughter and I to his village and introduced us to his family members so that we could learn more about the Guna lifestyle and culture. Visited May 2015

    Je souhaite anticiper un éventuel questionnaire pour vous faire part de toute notre satisfaction quant à la prestation réalisée à bord du NIKITA. En quelques mots:

    Le capitaine, particulièrement disponible et attentif à notre bien-être à bord, pro dans la conduite de son navire et une excellente connaissance du site. Son co-équipier Ronny, d’origine Kuna, excellent cuisinier et prévenant à notre égard. Très bon esprit, d’humeur égale, convivial et sérieux dans l’accomplissement des taches à bord. Nous n’avons manqué de rien, nous sommes sentis en sécurité (à bord et durant les sorties pêche) et sommes repartis ravis, enchantés de nos vacances à bord du catamaran. Merci de bien vouloir transmettre à vos contacts tous nos remerciements.

    A Unique Paradise

    tripadvisorWe rented a charter through San Blas Sailing and could not have gotten more from it, San Blas is truly an extraordinary place to get away from it all, relax, enjoy life, and savor the beauty of deserted islands, corral reefs, and a lifestyle apart. The local Kuna Yala indians are proud and rightly so, they are protecting a very special part of the world and a culture that owes nothing to any other in the world. We motored/sailed for 4 days and anchored each night a a new and more beautiful island, played on the sand by day, snorkelled by afternoon, and enjoyed a fine meal of crab, lobster, or fish plus a glass of wine by night, it is hard to imagine a better or more relaxing vacation. Thanks to our excellent capitan, we got to see and enjoy a unique paradise at an incredibly reasonable rate and with nothing but positives to remember. Highly recommended.

    San Blas Sailing amazing. Stay on Pepita

    tripadvisorI had not planned this vacation very well, all i knew is that i wanted and needed to get away last month, a friend had talked to me years ago about Panama and the San Blas islands, it was time to go explore what it was all about. I found the company “San Blas Sailing” online, looked at their website and excellent reviews, emailed them inquiring about possibilities and options available, and our trip was organized and booked in no time.The team in their Panama City office responded right away, was so helpful and professional, I felt immediately at ease and confident that this was the company to travel with and trust with our wellbeing and our vacation.

    Our San Blas sailing adventure aboard Jivago with Jean-Charles and Yuri is one of the best vacations we’ve ever had, it was an astonishing 3-weeks-escapade in a haven of peace, wonders and beauty!

    Our brilliant crew couldn’t have been more thoughtful and attentive to our every need and desire, JC set up a dreamy itinerary for us in the San Blas, all the way to Cartagena and back. We got to experience the life on Jivago (a first time sailing experience for both of us), but we also got to spend time on many islands and meet some of JC’s lovely friends, Kuna and fellow sailors. To mention only a few of our daily activities, my favorites were probably snorkeling the gorgeous reef in different areas, eating the catch of the day deliciously prepared by our genius chef and captain JC, discovering the Kuna culture, swimming every morning in such a pristine, lush and amazing setting, sailing the open sea to Cartagena, kayaking to a Colombian village, dining under the stars with the most fun and warm hosts I’ve had the privilege to meet and their friends. The photos may speak better of how happy we are and how good it was, I can’t remember when was the last time I smiled so big and so much, for so long.

    We are so thankful to the San Blas Sailing team for setting everything up for us in such a perfect way, and our beloved captain-now-friend Jean-Charles and his assistant Yuri for giving us the time of our lives in the San Blas. We learned a ton, enjoyed it all like there was no tomorrow, and shall return as soon as we can. I highly recommend this voyage and company to everyone, experienced or not, family, couple or single, there’s something for everyone, it’s amazing!

    Magical trip-Can’t wait 2 do it again! PEPITA/San Blas Sailing is the way to go!

    tripadvisorSi desea reservar un viaje en velero no busques más que . Reservé con Jorge que no podría haber sido más atento, profesional, servicial y atento durante todo el proceso de reserva hasta justo antes de nuestra llegada. No es un momento pasado donde teníamos alguna dudas sobre lo que él había confirmado para nosotros. Su conocimiento y paciencia fueron muy apreciado.

    Habíamos reservado la pepita para nuestro viaje. Originalmente un grupo de 6 y 4 se convirtió en el último minuto, con dicho esto no estaban en el mejor de bebidas alcohólicas.

    que se revirtió a nuestra llegada, nos recibió nuestro capitán Gilbert y luego la anfitriona encantadora/chef Elisabeth.

    No puedo decir suficientes cosas buenas sobre Gilbert y Elisabeth. La mitad de las veces que no nos dimos cuenta de que estábamos allí y la otra mitad nos reímos y pasar el rato con ellos. Gilbert es el capitán ideal para un viaje como este, aventurero, eficientes, respetuoso y muy fresco. Elisabeth es un cocinero excelente que puede hacer algo sobre la marcha, ella es también increíblemente divertido, dulce y entendido que ella es kuna. Juntos hacen un equipo increíble que se enorgullecen de la cultura kuna y tradiciones. Tuvimos el privilegio de conectar con artesanos locales y los residentes durante algunas visitas de la isla.

    Este viaje fue muy especial y memorable- hemos hablado hacerlo otra vez. Estamos todos bien viajado y acordó nunca tuvimos una experiencia como antes. San Blas es verdaderamente mágico y fácil enamorarse. Esperamos reserva con San Blas Sailing nuevamente y con Gilbert & Elisabeth.
