Only 1 out of 10 islands are inhabited at all! This leaves us a abundance of wind swept beaches to explore. The flatwater kiting and sailing around the Islands is so spectacular that the Cabrinha Off Shore Odysseys listed it as one of the top ten destinations on the planet to kitesurf. The wind season at the San Blas Islands starts in the middle of December until middle of May. Blowing consistently 12 - 25 knots more or less every day. So the ideal kite sizes for this trip are 9, 12, 14 and 17m. One of the many benefits of being on a sailing boat is that we can always sail to windier locations if needed.

The Destination

The local people that live on the islands are called the Kuna, with a fascinating culture they are a wonderful example of an how an indigenous population can flourish with their age old customs while surrounded by the modern world. They are both friendly and welcoming to tourists. The Kuna people protect their land keeping it wild, healthy and beautiful, the best way to experience these islands is by boat. Because the native preserve their land, the wildlife thrives on these islands. You will find a lot of tropical birds, insects and small reptiles as well as marine life such as dolphins, sharks, stingrays, crabs, lobster and much more! The San Blas islands are close to the equator meaning beautiful, warm weather the whole year. Buildings are a rare sight on these islands as a majority of them are completely uninhabited.

The Experience

Over the course of the cruise, you will visit and explore islands and kite spots that few have been. San Blas has been voted one of the best places to kite and sail in the world and it's easy to see why. The marine and wildlife thrive, you will kite with dolphins, turtles, zerba fish and lively corals beneath your feet. Snorkelling gear is available on board for your use and it is highly recommended to snorkel the reefs and experience the marine life for yourself.

To add to the amazing beauty and wildness of the islands, the wind blows almost everyday over the summer. You will get a session in everyday if you desire. Morning and sunset sessions are amazing and these are the times the wind blows the strongest. Evenings will include bonfires on the beach and dinner on the boat. You will leave this trip with life-long friendships and some awesome new kite tricks!

Kiteboarding Lessons

Unlimited free coaching from our on board instructor is included (one-on-one lessons will be an additional cost). Beginners are welcome, though we recommend starting with a week of lessons at our kitesurfing guesthouse in Punta Chame before the trip.

A Light Wind Day?

From December to April the trade winds blow so we expect very consistent wind over the season. However we are working with the elements so in the rare case of a few light wind days we have you covered! We can go on jungle treks to water falls, SUP, Fsshing, snorkelling as well as exploring islands and meeting the Local Kuna.
