Best Sailing Experience in San Blas

I took a 3 night / 4 day sailing trip around the San Blas Islands region of Panama on Fernando’s 46 foot steel hull yatch called Bau Mau. It was a great adventure. We motor sailed to 3 locations exploring different island settings, sadly the prevailing winds were not favourable to unfurl the sails. The swimming and snorkeling was excellent at each location. Each night the yatch was anchored close enough to a beautiful island group to enjoy the views yet far enough away to avoid being annoyed by any insects. Fernando was a great skipper and perfect host. He was an extremely competent captain, keen to share information about all aspects about operating a yatch at sea. I enjoyed steering the boat and doing ocean navigation. Fernando was very knowledgeable about the local Guna Yala people and their culture. The meals Fernando prepared were plentiful, nutritious and tasty. A sailing adventure on BouMou is more suited to the traveller seeking an authentic San Blas experience. I would highly recommend reaching out to Fernando if you are planning a sailing trip to the San Blas Islands. He provided timely responses and ensured all my questions were answered.

Fantastic spot and a lot of fresh healthy food. Fernando did always his best so that we could have a wonderful time on his boat. He organized the arrival and departure very well, offered us options what to do and what to eat and served us almost every day fresh fish cached by himself.

Thank you! Wish you the best!
