Superyacht Charter San Blas Islands

San Blas Islands Yacht Charter

Private Yachting Cruises in the San Blas Islands

A paradise of coral reefs, sunken shipwrecks and thatched beach huts, the San Blas archipelago is made up of the remote outer islands and the busier community islands. With 360 islands, best explored by motor or sailing boat, it is a true Robinson Crusoe-style escape of powder-sand beaches and simple living. Rent a crewed superyacht with YPI to have the best cruising possible in the San Blas Islands. This is an example of an eight day yacht charter itinerary for San Blas. Yacht charter itineraries are created individually for every client based around personal preferences and how you want to spend your time onboard your superyacht in South and Central America.

Superyacht Charter  Isla Flamenco

Isla Flamenco

Welcome to Panama

Land at Panama’s International Airport and meet your motor or sailing boat captain for the quick 1-hour drive to the marina at Isla Flamenco, where your superyacht will be anchored and ready for your arrival onboard. Settle in and get to know the boat, enjoy welcome drinks and a fabulous dinner prepared by the onboard chef.

Superyacht Charter Shelter Bay

Shelter Bay

Pacific to Atlantic

Today we will be joined by a specialist Panama pilot, who will guide the motor or sailing boat through the world-famous Panama Canal, crossing the country in its entirety to arrive at Shelter Bay on the country’s north coast. The superyacht will then continue on to San Blas, about 65nm further east along Panama’s north coastline.

Superyacht Charter Isla Porvenir

Isla Porvenir

Island Gateway

Stop in this island’s Kuna Indian-operated office where the captain will collect immigration and cruising permits. Take a walk around the island or spend a day on the superyacht’s water toys overlooking white-sand beaches.

Superyacht Charter Coco Bandero Cays

Coco Bandero Cays

Snorkel Heaven

Some of the most beautiful cays of the San Blas, the Coco Bandero Cays are surrounded by a reef extending 4 miles around the cays. The waters here are gin-clear. Grab a snorkel or a clear-bottomed kayak and go exploring in the underwater world, alive with colourful fish including snappers and groupers.
Superyacht Charter Holandes Cays

Holandes Cays

Private Anchorage

On to the Holandes Cays, a small archipelago of 21 paradise islands protected by a 7-mile-long barrier reef. These cays are the furthest islands from mainland Panama and boast wonderful fishing and snorkelling in clear blue waters. Stop at Swimming Pool Anchorage, one of the best known anchorages in the islands, located between Turtle Island (or BBQ Island) and the stunning Isla Benedup. Enjoy a beach barbecue prepared by the superyacht crew. Adventurous charterers can head north to find a tunnel that guides you underneath the whole reef.

Superyacht Charter Isla Perro

Isla Perro


Isla Perro is one of the top snorkelling spots in the San Blas Islands, with a well-preserved sunken army gunboat ready to explore with dive gear or a snorkel, only 5-6m beneath the surface. If the tide is low, you can see its rusty bow sticking out of the sea; at high tide you can snorkel over and around it spotting fish of all sizes and large coral fans. By night under a new moon, witness the magical effect of bioluminescence from small squids and plankton onboard your motor or sailing boat.

Superyacht Charter Turtle Island

Turtle Island

Coral safari

Called Turtle Island after the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs between May and August, enjoy a snorkel alongside this tiny island to explore its colourful corals. Inhabited by a single Kuna family, the island is great for simply wondering around or napping in a hammock. Return onboard your motor or sailing boat for a dinner of fresh lobsters caught that day.

Superyacht Charter Panama



Returning to Panama by small plane for onward travel marks the end of your superyacht charter. Make a pitstop in Casco Viejo if desired, a charming neighborhood lined with rooftop bars and innovative restaurants.
