Ideal for cruising Panama and Costa Rica in the most exciting way. While others offer a standardized sailing experience, lacking in flexibility and providing impersonal onboard services, we provide you with a vivid cruising adventure. Ten days of pure exploration starting from Puntarenas Port, Costa Rica or Flamenco Marina in Panama City, Panama. The jungles with their spectacular plants and wildlife, the unique white sand beaches and the Panama Canal crossing, are only some of the myriad treasures our Panama cruise has to offer.
Perhaps one of the best and most common activities in the tropics is Snorkelling. Swimming in the warm tropical waters while enjoying and observing the marine life with its numerous different types of colourful fish, is a must-do experience. Coming closer to nature at its best.
The crystal clear turquoise waters surround volcanic rock reef and sandy ocean floor. With very little ocean current around the island, it makes for an ideal place to scuba dive. The underwater volcanic rock formations and pinnacles are home to small hard corals, sponges and gorgonians while the protected biological reserves offer the chance to see rays and sea-turtles. Plus, you’ll see large schools of fish swimming overhead on almost every dive.
Simply a photographer’s natural playground. You’ll never run out of subjects with such diverse ecosystems like rainforests, beaches, mangroves, waterways, mountains and an abundance of wildlife.
