i was looking for a boat to cross from cartagena to panama and couldnt get any information about it.
so i went to Club Nautica in Cartagena where i found a 47 feet boat Kite
with american capitan Patrick Canning. The trip was just wonderful, we safely came to panama spending 2 great days on San Blas islands.
There were 2 other small, 30 feet boats going from Cartagena to panama, but they just didnt look right as their colombian owners, so i took Kite.
When we arrived to san blas, i met passangers from those colombian boats, i guess capitans name was Fernando, so all passengers were complaining about their trip and they said that the capitans hardly gave them any food and boats were in terrible conditions. Neither they had rafts or life save jackets.
so passengers from other boats tryed to get on our boat to reach panama, that much they didnt trust their colombian boats.
now we are in panama safely, and i strongly recommend to anybody who wants to go from cartagena to panama or from panama to cartagena use capitan Patricks service on his beautiful 47 feet Kite.
