    After intensive research, we ended up selecting San Blas Sailing as our catamaran agency, primarily due to the responsiveness and detailed answers from Eunice during the planning process.

    We initially had reservations about the requirement to pay in before the trip (most other agencies collect a deposit but allowed you to pay the rest when you get on the boat) but the agency was as advertised and everything worked out fine!

    We opted to drive to the departure port (SUVs only) ourselves and Eunice was extremely helpful in providing us details (what model we should rent) and general directions/information. NOTE: The road to Puerto Dibin, although paved, had a lot of potholes and inclines!

    As for the experience itself, we selected catamaran Valpar 44 with Captain Roberto. He brought us to a few different islands and was very knowledgeable on questions that we had. More importantly, he was a GREAT chef and alongside with Sylvie and Eduardo, made sure our family of 4 (parents + 4 and 2 year-olds) had all our needs taken care of!

    We really enjoyed the beauty of the San Blad islands, food and hospitality of the crew. We communicated with both Eunice and the captain (who told us which water taxi to take from Puerto Dibin) primarily using Whatsapp and email.

    We are definitely coming back to San Blas!

    Thank you!

    Decidí viajar con mi esposa e hijo menor en sus vacaciones de Semana Santa a Panama.
    Eunice nos organizó la gira para la Ciudad de Panamá, Bocas del Toro e islas San Blass.
    En esta vimos la ciudad antigua, Canal de Panamá, diferentes tribus indígenas, playas, animales selváticos y otros lugares insólitos.
    También viajamos a través de San Blas Sailing a las islas.
    Valpar fue el catamaran, Roberto fue el capitán. La pasamos de maravilla. Excelente comida, playas inolvidables y servicio de primera clase.
    Esperamos volver nuevamente en un futuro cercano.
    Agradecemos enormemente a Eunice por organizar el viaje. Muy profesional, fácil de comunicarse y atenta.
    Gracias nuevamente por su servicio.

    Hi Jaime, I hope you are fine. It is quite a long time after our last contact. We have very busy time after our return from Panama, but very nice memories. We would like to let you know that we were very satisfied on the Roberto’s catamaran. He is very nice, and  experienced person, and a very good cook. We would definitively recommend him to everyone who decides for San Blas Islands. We wish you all the best, and best regards from Slovenia, Tjasa, Miha, and Tin Ster

    De retour des Îles San Blas je voulais vous faire part de mes commentaires. Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux grâce à Roberto notre capitaine et Alvin son marin. Ils ont étaient formidables. Les talents de chef cuisinier de Roberto sont étonnants. Dignes d’un chef étoilé ( langoustes au four, carpacio de poisson, poisson au sel, pasta merveilleuses Seviche mexicain etc etc. ) Sa connaissance des Îles et des indigènes nous ont permis de découvrir le lieux d’une manière exceptionnelle. Nous ne pouvons que recommander à vos clients cet équipage toujours prêt à faire le maximum pour faire plaisir. Je vous autorise à diffuser cet e-mail

    Amazing experience

    tripadvisorWe had a fantastic time with Roberto and Mira aboard Lady Jane during our sailing trip in San Blas Islands. They showed us the nicest corners of the archipelago and we enjoyed very much the sailing, snorkeling (so much to see, even rays!!), beach barbecue, Guna culture and the great food Roberto and Mira prepared for us. They were always very helpful and friendly hosts and we especially enjoyed a visit of Soledad Miria where due to Roberto´s knowledge of the Guna people we had the opportunity to see how they live without being too “touristy”. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience of living on Lady Jane for 5 nights, our Carribean dream came true!!
    We also booked through San Blas Sailing and found that it was well organized although there was a delay of one hour in the morning for the transfer from the hotel to Cartí. We had experienced drivers and there was no problem at all if you know that you have to cross a hilly area on small but paved roads to get to the Carribean Coast. We would have only wished a little more information on the boat jetty where to find the right transfer boat but could finally manage to find it ourselves.

    Sailing on Lady Jane

    tripadvisorReservamos 3 noches en vela la Señora Jane por San Blas Sailing. El barco está limpio y en buenas condiciones y Roberto, el capitán es excelente. Es divertido, interesante y muy bien informado sobre San Blas tener navegamos allí por 10 años. Comimos un montón de mariscos frescos – Roberto es una cocinera excelente. Recomiendo encarecidamente este barco para explorar las hermosas islas de San Blas.

    Sailing on the Lady Jane
    tripadvisorWe booked a 4 day tour of the San Blas islands through San Blas Sailing. We sailed with Roberto on Lady Jane. It was very comfortable and the food was fabulous. We ate grilled Lobster, pasta with Octopus and different kinds of Ceviche. One day Roberto caught a Tuna and we had grilled steaks. It is a magical part of the world and a sailboat is the best way to see the islands. Roberto has been sailing in San Blas for a long time and knows everybody and exactly where to go for the best swimming and snorkeling. He was a very entertaining host and made sure that everyone had a good time. A four day tour felt like just the right length of time, it was relaxing and never boring.

  • Debbie Baird and Judy Bell: December 2012

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Judy and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with Roberto, our captain and the Lady Jane in early December. I think feedback is important.

    Roberto was gracious, had a sense of humor, a great story teller and you could tell he truly loves to sail and be on the water, it’s in his veins. His ship, altho old was in excellent condition and clean. Having sailed in this area for so long, he has a great rapport with the local Kunas and we stopped on a few of the small islands where we purchased molas, fresh caught fish and lobster and one Kuna lady cooked our fish and made us coconut rice that we enjoyed under a palapas on the most beautiful beach. Roberto knew of some pretty great snorkeling spots and we took advantage of them. Roberto can really cook fish… and his signature fish carpaccio put any other ceviche we had in Panama to shame. We had just had one “almost” glitch.. we dropped anchor for lunch and Roberto mentioned where we would be anchoring that nite and where we would be visting the next day…Uh.. we were leaving the next day! Glad he brought that up. No biggie we just picked up anchor after lunch and high tailed it back to island near the airstrip for our early morning departure. I just wanted to give you some feedback as we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time on the Lady Jane and with Roberto and we would highly recommend Roberto and his ship.

    Ya estamos de regreso en el hotle El Panamá. Todo ha salido en forma excelente. Quiero agradecerte a ti y a tu jefa por haber ayudado a que organicemos esto en tan poco tiempo y solucionando no pocos obstáculos. El Lady Jane y su capitán Roberto son excelentes. Roberto es buen capitán, chef y persona; fue muy grata la estadía. Sin dudas volvería a ir con él.

    PD: finalmente compré un caña en el lugar que me indicaste. Fue una suerte, ya que – contra tu pronóstico- hemos pescado bastante.
