Almost Spring | Panama to Cabo

Arrive: IGY Marina Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Length: 19 days, 18 nights
Focus: Adventure Sailing, Upwind and downwind offshore sail training

We’ll depart Panama and punch out of the doldrums up the west coast of South America, crossing the dreaded Gulf of Tehuantepec before arriving in Cabo San Lucas. We’re en route to Hawaii for a rendezvous with science, so we’ll be moving fast. The crew will get a chance to gain some serious Ocean miles in the Pacific, and up a coastline that is rich in fish and birds – maybe you’ll even get to catch a tuna!

If you’re interested in going through the Panama Canal, you can join us in Colon for the transit then continue on to Cabo.

The combined cost for doing so;

Trip Price; $2532/£1880 –  Discount applied

Early Bird Price; $2890/£2142 – Discount applied

This trip can count as a qualifying RYA Ocean Yachtmaster passage – contact us to discuss!
