We spent a very pleasant three days with Debbie and Breeze aboard the Blue Sky. It’s an older boat which requires maintenance and care and they do this well, providing clear instructions upon arrival on how to respect the boat. The food is good and prepared each mealtime by Debbie. It can be difficult for them to get fresh supplies - although we had lovely fresh fruit, it’s a shame we could not have had local fresh fish. There is however a new grocery service, which arrives at the Blue Sky by local boat. For us, the highlights were the snorkelling and the kayaking, led by both Breeze and Debbie. They are very accomplished sailors, so we felt completely safe in their hands at all times. The atmosphere on board is at a lovely slow pace, enabling guests to chill out and enjoy themselves. Thank you both Debbie and Breeze for contributing to our wonderful stay in Panama.

Thank you for taking your time to write a nice review. Glad you had a good time. That is what our trips are all about, having fun! We had a lot of fun kayaking and snorkeling with the two of you! I especially enjoyed just the three of us having a girls afternoon snorkel. It is such an amazing spot and no one one else seems to realize that such a tiny island that isn't big enough to have even one palm tree is surrounded by such a vast beautiful amount of live coral and colorful fish! Regarding fresh fish, the fish we served with the fish taco buffet had been caught the day before. Breeze filleted the fish and it was stored in our freezer over night. Although the Gunas came by with fresh fruits and such, no fishermen came by during the few days you were with us. If they had of, it would have certainly been on the dinner menu! Unfortunately there are no guarantees if fish will be caught that day or not. It generally depends on the weather. If it has been rainy, and the water is cloudy it is hard for the fisherman to spear fish. We would love to have you sail with us again! Sorry you had to go home so soon to cold weather.

Debbie and Breeze are excellent sailors, wonderful hosts and the dining is superb! Most of all, their knowledge of the local culture is formidable. I enjoyed the tour of the waterfall with local Guna guide Lisa immensely! Thank you so much

Thank you for a great review! We really appreciate you taking your time to do so! We enjoyed showing you the islands. Glad you enjoyed the sailing, our cooking, and the waterfall hiking tour with our Guna Indian friend. The waterfall tour is not for everyone, especially young children. But for those fit enough for hiking and swimming, it is an amazing trip! We do hope you will come sail with us again soon!

This was our second trip to Sailing Blue Sky and we picked up where we left off. Laid back atmosphere, sailing every day (the trade winds were up), snorkeling, hanging out on the beach. What's not to like? We had the king sized bed with the en suite bath again. Very comfortable. My only disappointment was I did not catch a fish. But hey, a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work, especially if you are sailing at the same time! If you like lobster, conch, red snapper, look no further. Our favorite part is probably our hosts. Attentive, considerate, but most of all fun, especially once we have dropped anchor for the night. We like a couple of rounds of Mexican Train Dominoes and some of the excellent Panamanian rum, or maybe Breeze will pull out the guitar! Tocumen airport was the low point again. Arriving is not bad, but don't plan on getting a seat at the departure gate. The duty free was closed for renovations so get you rum before heading to the airport! All in all highly recommended!

We spent 3 unforgettable days on the blu sky. 3 days full of love music sun and relax. We forget about the clock and follow the natural light to wake up and decide when going to bed. The islands are wonderful and sailing is the best way to enjoy the islands. Debbie and Breeze are two wonderful persons and a perfect company: Debbie make sure that every meal is a special moment and Breeze make sure that the conversation is always interesting. An amazing experience

We spent three days aboard the Blue Sky with Debbie and Breeze and had an incredible stay! They are the best couple ever and very friendly and welcoming. The place is paradisiacal, islands everywhere, where each one has its charm. The first day we went with breeze to snorkel one of them and saw a lot of marine life. The second day we snorkled with Debbie on another island, and the third day we went kayaking to a wonderful island and just for the two of us. The boat is very comfortable, Debbie's food is very good. And you always feel a warm and pleasant atmosphere. Some tips: Do not bring a lot of clothes. It is not necessary. Bring a light jacket for the evenings. The food is abundant, it is not necessary to take more.

Thank you so much for your excellent review! We really enjoyed having you both sail and snorkel with us! Glad you enjoyed the kayaks, and some time on your own private tropical island. Thanks for the kind words regarding my cooking! It was a lot of fun having you join in with us singing along with Breeze's guitar playing! All the best wishes for your marriage, thanks for spending your honeymoon onboard Blue Sky! We look forward having you join us again soon! Happy Holidays!
