About this listing
Per new AirBnB policy we can't offer sailing trips! From now on our boat will be like a hotel where you sleep and eat! If you want to sail, snorkel or fish you can arrange it once aboard at no extra cost, separately from your AirBnb contract.
Blue Sky is a very large custom built boat, 52 ft. length, and 16 1/2 ft. beam (width). Due to the boat size and width, much like a catamaran, she is very stable. This makes a very good alternate to the expense of chartering a catamaran!
The spacious main saloon has large opening windows, a 360 degree view, guests refrigeration, ice maker, large sette opens to make a double berth, and a table that opens for dining up to 6 people.
There is a very large aft deck with a table and chairs, the big shade awning is removable awning for dining under the stars. There is plenty of room on the fordeck for sun tanning or yoga.
We've been sailing in the San Blas islands since 2006 and have many favorite snorkeling and kayaking spots with crystal clear water and beautiful beaches to take our guests. Perhaps you would like to snorkel a shipwreck, or we can arrange for a guided waterfall hiking tour thru the mountainous rainforest! We can introduce you to some of the indigenous Guna Indians, they will offer you handicrafts to buy.
Interaction with guests
Let us know what activities you prefer and we can plan your itinerary.
Blue Sky is a very safe and kid friendly boat. We have children's life jackets, and inflatable kayak/snorkel vests.
Regarding meals, we like to include fresh seafood, local vegetables and fruits. We are happy to accommodate special diets.
The San Blas islands form an archipelago stretching 100 miles east and west just off the coast of Panama. The mountainous rain forest runs along the entire coast.
The waters are crystal clear with amazing snorkeling. The reefs are filled with beautiful corals and tropical fish.
The islands are inhabited by the friendly indigenous Guna Indians living in huts made of bamboo. They often come by our boat to sell fresh seafood and their handicrafts.
Other things to note
Transportation to/from our boat is a combination of SUV 4X4 and launcha boat.
An SUV driver will pick you up from your hotel in Panama City, then drive you thru the mountainous rain forest to the Carti coast in the San Blas islands. There you will be met by a motorized launcha boat. The launcha boat driver will take you to where our boat will be anchored.
*Rates do Not include transportation to/from Panama City to/from our boat. There are several SUV and launcha services available. Please note, while we are happy to recommend a SUV or launcha boat service, and make reservations for you, these services hire their own drivers. We are not affiliated with the service. Payment is in cash directly to the person providing the service.
Once you are onboard we will give you an orientation tour for your safety and comfort.
We do not smoke, but smoking is permitted on the aft deck. No pets allowed.
My husband and I have been living onboard our various boats over half our lives. We raised our son onboard from conception to college. We love having guests from all over the world share our cruising home and sailing lifestyle.
