Re: Las Perlas, Panama - Info

There are many boats cruising the Las Perlas. They are close in to Balboa and Panama City. The tides are 19foot, so you have to be pretty careful drying out. We did 3 or 4 trips out to the Las Perlas 2nd half of last year. Some pics on the blog. There isn't any formal check in. Most boats do their checkin at Flamenco in Balboa. There are CostaGuardia boats that occasionally check papers. Gets a little crowded on the weekends when the sportfishers from Panama City are there. Moorings in Contradura are for the takings the rest of the week.

Re: Las Perlas, Panama - Info

How about that! We were in the San Blas last week, in Portbelo right now and not quite sure where to next. But we may very well bump into him, so he can buy me that beer. I haven't seen Clive since the early 2000s in St Maarten where he was recruiting crew. One classic memory was having a beer in the old Soggy Dollar, looking out over the lagoon at the right moment and seeing a "deposit" fall out of his stern long drop. Ahh, what beaut memories of pre-holding tank days!

Just to keep it as a small Internet connected world, I'm around the corner from you in Isa Grande, waiting for this wind to let off a bit before slogging to the San Blas.
