Axel is a great host and Sea Level is an amazing way to explore the beautiful archipelago. Axel's cooking is top notch and there is plenty of space for multiple people.

Skipper Axel was a wonderful host. We met him at a restuarant to go grocery shopping before boarding the boat. He had already picked up most of the groceries which was nice. He took us to some beautiful snorkling spots. Sailing with Axel is a great way to see all the islands. The bedroom has a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom had hot water which was a pleasant surprise. Highly suggested place to stay!

This is a great, relaxing way to experience Bocas. Axel knows his way around well, and so we managed to hit fantastic snorkeling spots and beaches at times when no one else was around. He'll share all his knowledge and insights and get to know you too without imposing himself too much. The boat is tight, like boats usually are, but there are lots of places to relax and move around in or out of the sun. We spent the majority of the time on board, so I'd suggest bringing your own music, reading materials, etc, so you can pass the time in other ways besides taking in the amazing scenery and peaceful sounds of lapping water. We had a great time after some confusion at the start. After we met Axel at the meeting place, we had to do more shopping than we anticipated and so we had to carry heavy shopping bags onto the boat in addition to our luggage. We hadn't thought of meal planning because we were happy to have Axel do it, so it was a little disorganized. Add in the downpour at the time, and it was kind of an inauspicious start to the trip. But after we got ourselves all settled in and to our lovely anchoring spot, it was just really, really fantastic.

Daniela in a private message to axel: " Axel, you did a great job taking care of us. You took us to wonderful places at the best times always keeping our pleasure in mind, it's an experience none of us will forget." Axel: Sure part of the experience of a sailing trip is how much shopping there is to be carried to the boat when there are four guests - have to talk with Amazon about drone delivery, I have a prime membership and expect a quick response - but Daniela: Why did you volunteer to help shopping if you don't want to carry bags? You could have been sitting in the coffee shop, legs up . . . I was not only your skipper but cooked all the meals with several courses - with and without meat - and heard a lot off "delicious" while eating. DANIELA, I run the cooking for four people with Lobster, Mahi Mahi, Calmar, Shrimp, Beef and Chicken not to mention vegetables and side dishes and you had only to set up the table and wash the dishes . . . luckily Christy loved to wash the dishes and did a fantastic job . . . and You don't even mention my good cooking but brag in public about having to carry your small luggage and some shopping 150 feet . . ? Did I pretend SEA LEVEL is a CRUISESHIP all included?

Axel was a great host. He was very communicative from the beginning - he answered all the questions I had before booking and after booking. He was very clear on where to meet and what to expect during our stay. His boat is beautiful and our room was perfect for us with our own bathroom. Axel is a wonderful cook and he has inspired me to cook with different ingredients at home now (that Madras curry!) It was a wonderful stay and Axel is a gracious host and sailor! Thank you Axel for a great trip!

Response from Axel:
Andreana, it was my pleasure to have You onboard and I enjoyed your feedback . . . Thanks for the compliments for cooking and the dedicated dishwashing. CURRY just explains a mix of spices and there will be a lot of madras curry. I tried a lot of different one, after years my favorit is the Madras Curry from Spiceologist via Amazon . . . I wish You all the best . . . skipper Axel

Definitely one of the best experiences I could have imagined touring the Bocas. Axel knows the islands really well - great spots for snorkeling, bays for dolphin watching or remote and deserted beaches. He stirs the boat through reefs like it is nothing. From grocery shopping to a wish list for our dinners (thanks again by the way for the great lobster, pulpo and tuna you prepared for us!): we had a wonderful time on his boat. He is quite flexible as well, since we could shift our booked dates without a problem. Thank you very much!

We so enjoyed our time on the sailboat with Axel; not only is he a great Skipper knowing his way around the area and what to show you, he is also a wonderful chef who prepared amazing meals for us during our two night/three day experience. The boat is lovely and makes an excellent change from staying in a hotel. Axel made sure that we saw and experienced all the interesting and beautiful sights to see in and around the Bocas Del Toro islands. Our time on board was not only exciting for us but relaxing as well. I spend many hours lounging and reading in the hammock on deck which is also covered to protect from the sun's hot rays. If snorkelling is your thing than this is by far one of the best places to see many beautiful sights. My husband enjoyed hours of snorkelling in the beautiful clear waters. Thank you Axel for a wonderful experience that will stay with us always.

We booked the sailing trip around Bocas del Toro for 3 nights which allowed us to spend quality time at a few beautiful locations. Although it was my third time in Bocas del Toro, it was a new and beautiful experience. We were blessed to be accompanied by dolphins not only once. The final highlight for me was that Skipper Axel allowed me to park the boat, which was super exciting. We had a wonderful experience with Skipper Axel. His sailing boat is just beautiful and definitely the best in Bocas. Axel made great effort to keep putting smiles on our face and communication with him was very easy. It was a fantastic trip.

You already had a big smile in your face sitting in the Inflatable we used to get to SEA LEVEL and I knew You will enjoy our Tour. You told me about your life in Hong Kong - did not want me to play any music - just enjoyed the slow motion and the silence . . . So easy to make You happy may be because You had Lobster every day . . . Thanks a lot . . . skipper Axel
