Panama City Marinas or Yacht Clubs

I'm researching marinas near Panama City and am becoming confused. I'm told that the name of the Flamenco Yacht Club is actually " Fuerte Amador Resort & Marina", yet when I try to access their website I go around in circles, always coming back to links to 'www.flamenco-island.com' which is inactive.

Then I tried finding information about the Balboa Yacht Club. Most information talks about it burning down, but some recent sites refer to beautiful facilities and racing programs.

Can someone who is/has been there recently please fill me in? Are either or both active? Good dock facilities? Active websites with current information?

Thanks very much.

Re: Panama City marinas or yacht clubs

Don't know a thing about Yacht Clubs, but there are a ton of marinas in PC. we spent a couple of weeks there this summer,prepareing a boat for delivery. did some cruising around and it's a watery place lots of marinas and private docks lots of places to moor and a couple of nice anchorages. Nice place met some nice folks Bob and Connie PS most yacht clubs don't care for bearded old men LOL

Re: Panama City marinas or yacht clubs

My boat is moored at Taboga (7 miles off shore) of Panama City. Here is the cruisers information you need.

There are very good moorings areas (free) on both sides of the causeway-BUT, weather determines which side you anchor.
