June July: Summer Sailing the San Blas Islands, what to expect?
Greatly reduced tourist activities along with almost empty anchorages welcome those who venture to explore the islands during the so called "low season".
Panama sailing charters during the summer: what should you know before booking your catamaran vacations?
With summer just around the corner it is time to choose between the best available Caribbean sailing spots, but why choose the San Blas islands as your next summer holiday destination instead of for example the Virgin Islands, the Grenadines or the Bahamas?.
What should you expect from such wild and untouched part of the Caribbean?
1st: Panama is out of the Hurricane zone unlike the other sailing destinations mentioned and therefore the conditions you will encounter will be mild, easy and suitable for all types of groups including families traveling with small children.
Why would you want to risk your vacations by sailing inside the hurricane zone during the summer months?
Exposing you and your family or group and putting to risk your much awaited vacations to the typical Caribbean sailing holidays may not be the best thing to do, specially not during summer. We do get calls from guests with cancelled sailing charter vacations because of Hurrican X or Tropical Storm Y stood in their way, not in Panama and not in San Blas.

Can you spot Panama on the map?
2nd: rain and climatological exposure in the San Blas Islands
May - beginning August: offer variable weather with occasional short duration rain showers and light wind. Perfect water visibility for snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. What else can you ask for?
3rd: low tourism and boats
Christmas, Carnival along with Easter holidays are the most requested dates for sailing the San Blas islands, Yes, those dates are just wonderful and very importantly they coincide with our vacation period back home, but why miss out on having the opportunity to explore with almost no other boat or vacationers around? Choose sailing the summer months to get lost in the most safe, unique and untouched part of the Caribbean
We still have some availability for the summer. contact us with your vacation details.
