Ensure your crew are route savvy

Off northeastern Panama, in the indigenous territory of Guna Yala (previously known as Kuna Yala), are the San Blas Islands, an archipelago of more than 370 islands that offer a perfect mix of stunning white beaches, crystal-clear water, sailing and an authentic Indian culture.

A slightly off the beaten track destination, there are a few tips vital for anyone looking to take a private yacht to or charter a superyacht in the San Blas Islands.

1. Ensure your crew are route savvy

“It is quite challenging to cruise the San Blas, but Eric Bauhaus’ guide The Panama Cruising Guide 5th Edition is very accurate,” said Carolijn Bijker, founder of Oceantrips. She advised visitors to use common sense, never navigate in the dark and always check the depth sounder.
