Captain Manfred and his lovely wife Petra actually built this boat themselves and have been sailing it since 1991. They have sailed around the world… twice!

Ahh! Manfred, Petra, you are the invisible foundations upon which these once-in-a-lifetime experiences are built upon!!

02 . gourmet -

All though all Colombia Panama Sailing sailboats offer great food Mintaka takes it one step further. Mintaka and Petra used to own and run a large restaurant in Germany. They have not forgotten the skills in the kitchen. Prepare for the best dishes served under sails.

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

The advantages of sailing Mintaka includes traveling in a smaller group. The sailboat itself is spacious, but only takes 8 passengers. This will give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow travelers while you experience the authentic sailing experience with some of the best skilled sailors around.
