Our three day vacation at the Flying Ginny, sailing through the San Blas islands of Panama, was nothing short of excellent. The captain Elena and chef German were super friendly and energetic. I’m not a fan of seafood, but the combination of the fresh local fish and lobster, and German’s cooking talent managed to delight me every single time. The islands are breathtaking, the ocean is warm and full of reefs and sea life. We even saw dolphins! During only three days we snorkled multiple times, swam in the ocean, went fishing (and caught a barracuda!), had a bonfire, went paddle boarding, bought the beautiful hand made pieces which the native Kuna people sell, and enjoyed many talks, laughs and unforgettable meals. This was a beautiful experience for all of my family, we felt disconnected from any stress or anxious feelings and at peace during the entire stay. I couldn’t recommend this trip more. Thankyou Elena!

Just got back from the best catamaran tour in Panama’s San Blas Islands. We did 3 days and 2 night aboard the Flying Ginny with captain Elena, cute doggy Nali and her mate and best cook Lupe. Not only is Elena super skilled and kind, but we gained a wealth of knowledge about the Kuna and the San Blas islands.

The islands were the most gorgeous I have ever been too. Elena took us to the most remote islands to relax on our girls trip. We also enjoyed speaking with her in the evenings about her own life and experiences on the boat and in San Blas. Lupe cooked the most delicious meals with fresh local fruits, veggies and seafood that was purchased directly on board from the local fisherman.

Elena took us to purchase local items from the local Kuna people and we even had the famous Mocal maker Lisa join us on board to show us her beautiful items.

I can’t recommend Elena enough for your own special San Blas experiences.

Just came back from the best vacation of my life (with my 3 girlfriends) on the Flying Ginny. Elena and her mate, Lupe, were truly amazing and inspiring women. We learned so much about the San Blas islands, the indigenous Guna people, and about the coral reef. Every day was an adventure. We snorkeled, sunbathed, floated on Nicole the unicorn, played with Nali (the sweetest watchdog), visited islands to purchase molas from the Guna women (and even met Lisa, the famous mola maker —what a treat!). On a clear night we slept under the stars and it was breathtaking. The food every day was amazing, with fresh catches purchased from the Guna and lots of fresh vegetables, cheese, and bread. In the evenings, we laughed & shared stories, and Elena was truly a fount of information and had such a deep understanding and connection with the Guna people. Lupe prepared a cake at the end to celebrate our 40th birthdays. I couldn’t think of a more fitting end to a perfect vacation.

Our experience with Helena’s catamaran was absolutely amazing!! San Blas is a beautiful place, and being able to visit the different islands, while enjoying the boat, was great. The accommodations are super confortable, spacious and fun! Helena took great care of us, from her delicious cooking to adapting the routine to our preferences. It was a great pleasure spending time with her and with Nali and we would definitely come back!

Honestly it was the perfect balance between adventure and luxury perfectly harmonized. We enjoyed the ocean, paddleboarding, beach and sports; to later go back to a fancy delicious dinner with great wine. It was the best of all worlds.

It was very comfortable, great space in the boat to have fun and very very clean.

Help and service from Elena was fantastic and clear.

This boat is so awesome. We spent 5 days aboard and we had such a nice time. Our Captain Elena was superb and got us to the best spots aswell as some good sailing. The cook Lea was on fire, every meal was so good and she kept us well hydrated with awesome cocktails.
If you're not sure if this is the yacht for you then I can safely say that this was one of the nicest yachts we saw during our time. It has so much space especially with the nets in the front.
Go for it you won't regret it.

Elena and her crew are dedicated to giving you the best possible experience of San Blas. She altered the charter to our wishes while her cook made some delicious meals worthy of a micheline star. Nali (the dog) was such a nice addition. We'll definitely be back!

The all inclusive charter on board of Flying Ginny was a fantastic experience! We had the chance to visit outstanding places on the islands of San Blas and got in contact to the locals, very interesting indigenous people. We had an amazing time together, snorkeling over coral reefs, playing beach volleyball, fishing...... and always excellent food and hospitality. Elena and her crew are really professionals and experienced, always accompanied by their nice dog Nali.
