Your Sailing Experience
Treat yourself, family, or friends to sailing on Decision. She is a magnificent boat! You can go on an overnight cruise, or charter her for up to a week! Your cruise will be customized to your desires and interests. Let us know how many in your group, and how long you'd like to go for, and we'll take you on a sailing voyage you'll never forget. Just bring your swim suit, sun hat & sunscreen, and camera, and we'll look after the rest!
Your hosts, Captain John, and First Mate Jane, will skillfully and safely take you sailing among some of the most beautiful and pristine waters of the Pacific. Captain John has sailed most of his life in Canada and loves racing. John & Jane sailed Decision down the Pacific coast to Panama in 2012, a thrilling voyage of a lifetime. For the past 2 years, they have explored the Chiriqui Gulf Islands. They welcome you aboard Decision and look forward to being your hosts and sharing the beauty with you!
"We don't have much control over the wind, but we always have fun with whatever Mother Nature sends us!", says the Skipper. "Safety and fun are priorities, and in that order!"

Tour Trip Durations
Choose cruising trips of 1 to 5 nights. You will be greeted at the quaint fishing village of Boca Chica, about 45 minutes from David. From the marina there, we will head out with high tide and begin weaving our way through a myriad of beautiful islands.
Depending upon the number of nights you choose, we will vary between sailing in open waters, stopping to swim, exploring islands, and dropping anchor for the night at one of the gorgeous islands.
On 3 to 6 day cruises, we can stay anchored a day or so at one of your favorite islands, if you'd like, and enjoy swimming, snorkeling, exploring the beaches, and just relaxing in tropical beauty!
What's Included & What to Bring
Your cruise is all inclusive. You will be served 3 tasty and nutritious meals each day. All food, snacks, and plenty of water, sodas, and fruit drinks are provided. Bedding is provided for your berth. Also available for your enjoyment are snorkeling equipment and boogie boards.
Just bring your camera for the amazing scenery and a lifetime of memories, a sunhat & sunscreen, and a towel. Pack light as you'll be barefoot in light shirts, shorts, or swim wear most of the time.
Note that Decision is an alcohol and smoke free boat. Alcohol and safe boating don't mix. Your safety & health always come first on Decision.
Charter Decision for a full week. Perhaps you are an experienced sailor and your boat is on the hard for the winter. Come to Panama and sail in tropical paradise! We will act as your guide. Panama is easily accessible from all international travel hubs. We will coach you on travel arrangements.
Or, if you are less experienced, we will give you as much help and direction as you wish. Your skipper is provided.
For bareboat charters, plan your own provisioning if you wish. Customize your charter according to your interests & abilities. For barefoot chartering, we will act as your guide, and you chart your own course & skipper. We are here to help you every step of the way.
