Not a boat tour, but an island experience

Being on a speed boat means you get to spend most of the time on the islands, showing off the beautiful beaches and villages. In 4 days you are only on the boat around 8 hours in total, and there is no ocean crossing. On the trip you’ll sleep on the islands, spending two nights in Kuna villages and one night camping on a deserted island.

The crew has years of experience both in boating and in San Blas. They work closely with the Kuna, giving you a unique opportunity to meet the local people as well as experience the pristine beaches and waters on offer.

BY BOOKING THIS TOUR, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND, ACCEPT AND AGREE OUR FAQ, TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND OUR LIABILITY RELEASE.

Our relationship and your experience
After many years of operating in San Blas we have developed very close relationships with the local indigenous community, the Kuna. Being able to share this experience with you, and share you with them, is an integral part of our trip and what really sets us apart.
Throughout the trip you will be meeting locals who work with us, communities that we work closely with, and villages where we buy supplies like fish/seafood, rums, & ice, etc. We highly respect the communities in our route and we plan our trips in a way that we don’t exhaust the villages with our visit.
Most of our crew are from these villages and we are welcome there.
As an individual you are welcome to go around villages to talk with and meet the locals.

Photos:
Photos are a big deal in Kuna Yala, some will ask you 1$ for taking a photo of them, some will completely refuse. In all cases you will need to start a conversation with them first and then ask for a photo.
Kunas children will go after your camera and make your photography a dream! However, you will still need to ask their permission and if their mother or father is around, you will need to ask permission from them.

Coconuts:
The San Blas islands are coconut plantations planted by the Kuna. Every coconut, no matter where you find it, has an owner whom you need to find and pay before going crazy banging it on rocks and whatever you can find to try and get it open. Kunas have machetes and they will open it for you.

Village Rules:
Always wear a shirt in villages,
Ask before taking pictures. Sometimes the Kuna may charge you 1$ for picture.
Please don’t offer alcohol to the Kuna, particularly rum, the results are not fun for anyone!
You can bring things for the Kuna kids. Some suggestions are: books, pens, volleyball, basketball, football, any game…. It’s better to give these kinds of things than sweets.

Watching where your money goes is very important!
Come with us and support the local families. Ethical travel doesn’t mean we want tourists to stop having fun, we just want them to think about how they’re spending their time and money.
Be a conscious traveler, with an awareness of the place you’re going and whether or not the money you spend benefits the economy of the local hosts.
We work very closely with the Kuna on all aspects of the trip and most of the money from your fare stays in San Blas, distributed among the local people we work with and the different communities we visit along the way.

We travel between Sapzurro/Capurgana in Colombia and Carti in Panama. This is literally from one end of the San Blas Islands to the other.
We are THE ONLY tour that takes you through the full archipelago of San Blas. Passing through all 365 islands.

NO OCEAN CROSSING: 
Traveling this way you’re always in sight of the coastline, weaving through paradise islands and indigenous villages.

COLOMBIAN HIGHLIGHTS:
Visit Sapzurro, Capurgana & La Miel on your way. Some of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean.

MEET PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE WORLD!
We encourage a wide mix of ages within the group, from old time adventurers to short break professionals to first time travelers.
Every combination of people makes a unique, one off, atmosphere onboard. There is no upper age limit. All you need is a normal physical condition to get on and off the boat, and an adventurous team spirit!

Depending on the season, our trips leave from 5 up to 27 crew not included.
All meals are included
from lunch the first day to lunch the last day of the journey. 10 meals in total.
Snacks are not included.
Dietary requirements: Please inform us of any dietary requirements. If you are vegetarian, vegan or have allergies etc.
Our menu is based on traditional caribbean cooking with a gringo touch, using fresh seafood, lobsters when available, chicken, vegetables, fruits, rice… The seafood in San Blas is first class and we serve lots of it!
We buy our fish directly from the fisherman on some islands or the locals prepare delicious meals for us. We stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables,vegetarians and vegans will enjoy healthy dishes. The crew usually serves fruits between the meals or after the meals.
We are proud of our food, our teams and the Kunas cook with passion. Sometimes we do not cook per plate but in one big batch caribbean style so it will be hard to separate ingredients just to cater for those who do not like garlic or onions etc. Remember that you are on remote islands! You may have to make a small exception sometimes.
We always work to improve and do our best to satisfy our guests!
DRINKS ARE NOT INCLUDED
Water: We recommend around 1 gallon per person before the trip as you can also buy water on some of the islands.
Cold beers, sodas and coconuts: can be purchased from most of the islands during the trip with a cost of $1-2 depending on the island.
Rum: A popular drink among guests, should be bought before the trip as it is usually not available on the islands.
NO. We take care of your stamp in or out of Panama and your entrance fees for each island. On the Colombian side stamping in is free* and is done in Capurgana. But you will have to pay 20$ on the way from Panama City to Carti our departure point for Kuna Yala Entrance fee.
