Cool Boat - Colombia to Panama

Just came over from El Porvenir to Cartagena on "Stahlratte", a huge boat crewed by lovely people. It´s returning to Panama on the 1st December. There is room for up to 17 guests and probably quite a few motos. Cost: $275 pp & $150 per bike. This was a very comfortable and safe sailing option via Las Islas San Blas. Good company and nice German food, especially the coffee! All proceeds go to preseving this 100 year old vessel. PM me for more info. and pictures/telephone numbers etc.

Exclamation Oops!!

Sorry, that should read $275 per person!! I have changed it now.

Hello mate, yeah, customs and all that is taken care of by Manfred, a large German. Cost per bike was $10. I´ve done this trip twice now, and this was easily the best experience.

More info on this

Just got more info on this...

Cost is $275 per person and $250 per bike, departure is 1st December but you have to be in Cartagena by the 28th to sort out paperwork (assuming customs stuff).

More info is at: http://www.stahlratte.org/

Doubt we'll make it there in time, but will give it a try.
