As years behind, lobster, crab, conch and octopus catch and distribution will be banned in San Blas from March 1 - June 30th.

Lobsters in San Blas as well as other commercial marine species face normal threats, therefore, regulations such as catch limits, size restrictions, and closed seasons can indeed help protect the lobster population and prevent their decline and ultimately their dissapearence.

Guna indigenous economy, specially in the outer cays, is almost completely dependant on our sailing charters in San Blas.

Dutch Cays is indeed an amazing place comprising numerous and amazing coconut filled islands, crystal clear waters, reefs and nature but economy is simplified to say the least and locals make their living mostly by selling traditional molas and diverse handicrafts along with lobster and other delicious crustaceans that by the most part end up in our guest’s plates.
