Sail for Panama and it’s incredible islands from March 1 – March 12, 2019 on the journey of a lifetime.
Like its famed canal, Panama itself is a fascinating mosaic of colors, textures and humanity’s invincible will to co-exist with the environment. BSSA takes special pride in showing travelers Panama through the intimate perspective of a small vessel. With their profusion of coconut palms, white sand beaches, unexplored coral reefs, and luxuriant jungle spreading to the water’s edge, the San Blas islands are just one example of the special moments that await on this unique small ship cruise.
Panama has been a popular cruising destination for years due to the awe-inspiring Panama Canal and its designation as one of the most diverse, natural ecotourism destinations in the world. With Blount, you will visit the “Whole Panama,” transiting the full length of the canal and experiencing both the Caribbean and Pacific sides of this remarkable country. Experience a fascinating mosaic of colors, textures and communities living in harmony with nature. In this area of the world, time seems to stand still as we introduce our guests personally to native cultures that most will only read about. A jungle river leads us in hand-carved ‘cayuga’ canoes to the home of the Choco Indians where we are greeted with warm hospitality by people still living in harmony with nature as in the days of Christopher Columbus. This spectacular trip is like visiting old friends, and is one BSSA’s’s most exotic experiences.
