We had an incredible experience sailing with John and Eileen in San Blas! Their extensive knowledge of the area was impressive; they knew the best spots for snorkeling, secluded beaches, and even introduced us to the local Guna culture. John's passion for surfing was infectious, and Eileen's energy kept us active with island sports and activities. If you love adventure and exploring nature, John and Eileen are the perfect hosts to make your trip unforgettable!"


Our trip with John and Eileen was nothing short of amazing! Having sailed in San Blas for over 15 years, they were like seasoned navigators who showed us the hidden gems of the islands. We loved learning about the local traditions and meeting the friendly Guna families thanks to their close connections.
