“Santana Catamaran”
Review of Blue Sailing

Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

We spent the last 5 days on Santana sailing from Panama (Puerto Lindo) to Cartagena and we would highly recommend the trip. The crew ( captain Jose Alberto, Marcela and the cook James) made the trip unforgettable, we always felt safe and the freshly cooked food was delicious. Moreover we were fascinated by the beauty of the San Blas Islands. The Santana is really comftable, has two toilets, snorkeling equipment for everybody, fishing stuff and there is always drinking water provided.
USB-charging was also possible!:)

We have just sailed from Cartagena to Panama on the Big Fish 1 and had the trip of a lifetime. I am not a sailor and was slightly nervous of the open sea crossing, plus it was expensive so wasn't sure if it would be worth it. However it was amazing, lying flat and taking seasick tablets meant the crossing was fine, and the islands are so beautiful we completely fell in love. Definitely wasn't ready to leave after five days, diving in the sea and eating Francia's delicious meals was very hard to leave. Can't recommend the crew enough - Hari, Francia and Luis are a star team, we felt safe at all times and they were really lovely and great fun to be around. We were lucky enough to have a fab group on board, but to be honest we think Big Fish 1 is a boat with a great atmosphere and it would be hard not to love it!

Blue Sailing and the crew of Amande were stellar. Blue sailing was there to answer all of your pre-trip questions. The pre-trip emails go a long way to help you get organized. I can’t say enough about the boat crew! Gali worked culinary wonders in the kitchen. The boat was always organized and spotless. The crew worked so well together they provided a great and welcoming atmosphere for all on board. Dingo and Cezar did a great job sailing the boat and finding all of the cool and deserted snorkeling spots.

Had the best sailing experience this past week on the Gitano del Mar, with Elena, Rosie & Jonathan! The boat was wonderful and Rosie was incredibly accommodating to vegan diets! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this boat to anyone!

The 5 days on the boat were part of our 6 week travels through Central America. And we consider those days as the best part of it. We never ate so good in whole Latin America like on the boat. The meals were fresh (fishing ourself and from the islands) and cooked with love and passion! thanks Gally! :) The whole boat trip was super uncomplicated, safe and friendly. We felt comfortable and as a family. Snorkling, discovering the most beautiful island group in Panama and having a blast with every body on the boat. THANK YOU!
