This experience is a must for those travellers seeking a true and unique experience. We spent 10 amazing days in the San Blas islands for Christmas. Due to the global pandemic and the lack of the impact of other boats and tourists, dolphins, turtles and other marine life had proliferated in the area and often came amazingly close to our catamaran. It was a total joy to meet the local kuna indigenous and get to understand their amazing culture and ways. Food was totally fresh and amazing and the boat had all the comfort we needed, meeting our expectations. Our transfers in and out were quite easy, smooth and trouble free thanks to Chris (the manager). He also took care of our dietary needs (2 vegetarians) and was able to provide local rum to complement the alcohol included, furthermore, and unlike other companies we contacted, he kept us informed at all times of all developments on movement restrictions and other useful information regarding our trip. Most important of our trip was the sense of stillness and total peace we have experienced nowhere else, we take that back with us. Thank you!

Covid-19 reschedule, all good! Just a quick thank you to the team at Catamaran Adventures and specially to Chris and captain Mat for not letting us down and helping us change our charter dates for our scheduled trip this past Easter and at no extra cost. We received a much appreciated bonus of a free upgrade to a bigger/nicer catamaran. We learned that a few feet in a boat mean a lot! San Blas islands and the whole region are now back again open for tourism. Previous to our trip we were informed that we had to wear a mask at times, keep safe distance and most important bring our own PCR test from home. We were totally ok with that and got our tests the afternoon before our departure. No issues on any of our transfers, we did get our results checked at both Panama and San Blas borders. The islands we visited were totally out of this world, and we saw no other tourists at all. This just does not happen! This trip really meant a lot to us, we are now ready to go back to "civilization" and miss dearly our adventures in San Blas Islands. Greetings!

Sailed w Captain Franco & Paula on their 40’ Catamaran. Excellent trip, incredibly remote & gorgeous islands. Paula is a wonderful chef, inquired what our food requests were & created magnificent meals. Boat was very clean, beds comfortable & drinks were always on the ready. Franco is a Very knowledgeable Captain, listening to his sailing stories was fascinating. All transportation to & from Panama City to the Catamaran happened without a hitch. My kids said it was their favorite trip we’ve ever done!!!! Well done Catamaran Adventures!!

The San Blas Islands are amazing, and chartering a boat is the best way to see them. I came here with my family, and we had an unforgettable experience! Activities included cultural exploration, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, swimming, and relaxing. Our captain and crew made delicious food and were very personable. Two times we even had freshly caught fish as we were sailing. The water is like a bath, and the brisk wind keeps you cool. The road to get there from Panama City is long and bumpy, but the drivers are competent and the views along the way are amazing!

We would like to thank the whole team at Catamaran Adventures: Chris, the charter coordinator responded to all our mails and requests instantly and helped us set up the transfers in and out San Blas by plane, also the captain Ohmar (translates to "Oh-sea!" for showing us this unique part Panama and the Caribbean, Lu, the cook and her natural meals also deserves our gratefulness, we never ate so good on board any of the sailing trips we have embarked on, and they are plenty... Last but not least, thank you to Jose, the kuna indian on board and our guide to the local indian community, we really felt welcomed by all of them. BTW, the boat was huge, 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, etc... Great team, perfectly coordinated on the Salina 48, a truly delightful experience for my family of 6.
