Tour Highlights

  • Experience the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal firsthand as your sailing yacht navigates the locks and channels that connect the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic during a daytime sailing.
  • Explore Isla Coiba, a UNESCO World Heritage site and national park known for its stunning biodiversity. Opt to snorkel in its pristine waters to witness vibrant marine life and coral reefs.
  • Immerse yourself in the lush beauty of the Rio Seco Rainforest. If you like, trek through dense vegetation to encounter exotic flora and fauna while hearing a symphony of tropical birds.
  • With an expert guide, spot monkeys, sloths, and colorful birds amidst a backdrop of rainforest and coastline at Manuel Antonio National Park, a biological oasis known for its diverse wildlife and beautiful beaches.
  • Explore the museums and architecture of San Jose, Costa Rica and Panama City, Panama, gaining insight into local culture and history.
  • Our sailing yacht allows us to access smaller ports and more remote destinations than a typical cruise ship, resulting in a more authentic and off-the-beaten-path exploration of the region. Sailing also provides a travel experience characterized by the gentle sway of the sea, the sound of the wind in the sails, and the serenity of being away from the bustling crowds.
