Sailing San Blas Islands

Pantalasa started with the intention of taking our guests to the most beautiful and undiscovered islands in the Caribbean Sea. We discoverd the San Blas Islands of Panama some years ago, and were so impressed by the beauty of their white sand beaches, lined with palm trees and magnificent coral reefs, that decided to put together a yacht charter, to share with you the most pristine waters and islands we have ever been to. We have been living in San Blas since then, chartering our 50 foot sailboat and still discovering new wonderful anchorages and amazing uninhabited and virgin islets. There are nearly 365 islands to explore!

Live a unique experience by sailing San Blas with Pantalasa and savor our passion for sailing & cooking! Check out some of the activities you, your family and friends can do on your sailing charter in San Blas:
