Involving the Gunas, Our Greatest Achievement

Followed by the foundation of San Blas Sailing in 1997, our Guna Crew Project started. Involving the native communities of Guna Yala with the tourism was our goal. After a few years of training and hard work we are proud to announce that the project is a total success. We are currently hiring 3 full time Guna Captains and 2 assistant.
