    Our family of six spent a wonderful week in the Guna Yala (formerly San Blas) Islands of Panama aboard the beautiful 48 foot catamaran Zenith in December 2021.  We booked our trip with Melody of San Blas Sailing.  Melody was nice, easy to work with, and arranged a first class trip. She arranged charter flights to other beaches of Panama, transfers, hotels, and our charter of Zenith.  Everything went very smoothly and right on schedule.  The highlight of our trip was our time on Zenith.  Captain Fred and crew Marina were hospitable, caring, friendly, and fun!  Captain Fred’s deep knowledge of the San Blas islands meant that we spent each night in a beautiful protected anchorage right off the beach of one of the many amazing, mostly uninhabited small tropical islands there.  Both he and Marina seemed on very good terms with the few indiginous Guna who do live out on the islands.  This meant extremely fresh fish or lobster for dinner each night!  Marina’s meals were generous and delicious. She was able to accomodate our daughter’s gluten intolerance by making a special delicious dish for her when the menu dictated it.  The Zenith is really well laid out and equipped for this kind of charter. The staterooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. Zenith has all the snorkel gear you could want, SUP’s and kayaks.  The water is so clear and warm that it is just as good to swim to the islands as SUP or Kayak. The snorkeling ranged from good to excellent depending on the reef.  We highly recommend San Blas Sailing and the Catamaran Zenith!!

    Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

    Une équipe qui a répondu parfaitement à nos exigences :
    – une croisière aux San Blas de 5 jours, organisée juste pour nous avec de très belles rencontres, des paysages à couper le souffle, des fonds marins d’une richesse inouïe sur un bateau très confortable, des langoustes et du poisson pêché du jour fantastiques !
    – un séjour dans la région de Chiriqui (Guadalupe et Boquete) avec encore de belles découvertes très bien rythmées. Location de voiture, choix d’hôtels parfaits.
    – Une journée qui a commencé avec le train “Panama Railway” de Panama à Gatun. Là notre chauffeur/guide, passionné et passionnant, nous attend pour nous faire découvrir le Canal (écluses de Gatun) puis route vers Portobelo, découverte de la région et retour avec notre guide à Panama City.
    15 jours de rêves et aucun point négatif ni de regret. Tout notre séjour a été parfaitement rythmé, encadré juste quant il fallait comme il fallait. Un très grand Merci à toute l’équipe !

    Buenos días Eunice,

    Nos gustaría daros la enhorabuena por el fin de semana tan bueno que nos habéis hecho disfrutar. La organización has sido perfecta desde el primer momento (avión, recogida, etc..) El trato que nos ha dado Fred el capitán y su ayudante Martina ha sido excelente!! Siempre estaba atento a lo que necesitásemos, pendiente de todos los detalles. Nos ha hecho sentirnos como en nuestra casa desde el momento en que llegamos. La comida buenisima, las bebidas siempre frías, nunca falto hielo, los equipos de buceo, pesca, kayack, etc de primera clase. Los camarotes, baños y demás instalaciones del barco perfectos con todo tipo de detalles.

    De verdad First Class!

    Vamos a recomendar a todos nuestras amistades que contraten el Zenith con su capitán Fred y que conozcan San Blas atraves vuestro.

    Una vez mas enhorabuena por tener al Zenith con su capitán Fred!!

    Muchas gracias y volveremos pronto!

    Chère Melodiy,

    Juste un petit mot pour vous dire que nous avons passé un sejour vraiment agreable dans l archipel des San Blas et avons ete ravis. Le temps a ete magnifique et les paysages de toute beauté.
    Nous avons beaucoup economisé pour partir tous les 7 pour cette semaine de vacance et ces vacances ont été tres reussies et reposantes. Gilbert et Amarylis ont ete d une grande gentillesse, tres professionnels et ont fait de ce voyage un moment exceptionnel malgré un incident avec certains de nos enfants qu ils ont su gerer avec calme et intelligence et avec notre soutien.

    Nous vous souhaitons ainsi qu a votre famille une tres bonne année 2017

  • Thierry (Bob) et Corinne – Février 2016

    Bonjour Bernard et Melody,

    Nous voulions vous remercier pour la superbe expérience en croisière sur le Catamaran pour visiter les îles San Blas et de la chance que vous nous avez accordée d’être les seuls clients à bord.

    Gilbert et sa compagne étaient très prévenants et nous étions dans un climat serein et apaisant. Les repas furent très copieux et de qualité.
    Les lieux où nous avons jeté l’ancre étaient très beau également.

    Bien cordialement,

  • John Fraser – June 2015

    Hi Jaime, We had a most amazing weekend on “Destination Unknown” with Captain Gilbert and his assistant Amaryllis. They were incredible hosts and went out of their way to make our trip a lifetime memory. Thank you for all your last minute arrangements – we will be recommending your company to all our friends!
