Welcome to Maia!


The Crew

Brazilian Captain Gabriel knows San Blas like the back of his hand and will take you on unforgettable sailing, fishing and snorkeling adventures. He loves to play the guitar as well so make sure to ask him to bring it out after a nice evening meal. His first mate and partner Cota is a wonderful hostess. She's very artistic and very creative. The third mate is their adorable 2 year old daughter Maia. Maia was basically born on the water so is a great sailor. She loves to take dinghy rides with her dad and taking walks on the island to play with island pups and local guna kids.
