Fun and special memories

"Being on the Mintaka was an unreal experience. Our journey couldn’t have been as special without our awesome comrades whom we shared some fun and special memories. We learnt so much about sailing and boats, picking Manfred and Petra’s brains and prying into their fascinating life of living at sea."

A great boat

"I loved my time at the San Blas and really thanked myself for choosing this boat trip instead of the scary and shady boarder crossing. I would definitely recommend to take this trip if you are in the area and the Mintaka is a great boat to experience this tropical paradise!"

Probably the best meals

"We would definitely recommend them and give them a good review. They run a tight ship, have a nice boat, take small groups, and probably have the best meals of any of the backpacker boats sailing this route"
