Incredible Island Paradise Found! We Might NEVER Leave San Blas. SV Delos Ep 360

We make it to the paradise of San Blas, Panama and promptly consider never leaving! Our first stop in this incredible spot is Cayos Chichime, where we immediately head into the beach to stretch our legs. We find swaying palm trees, golden colored beaches, and gin-clear water. The locals are super friendly and I buy a gigantic lobster to celebrate our anniversary dinner! On the outer reef a gigantic wreck looms, which begs to be explored. It’s the San Blas Ferry, once the Grand Manan Ferry from way up north. It’s an incredible story how it ended up washed up on this reef, and you’ll have to watch the video to find out how! After a few days in this chill spot we set sail to Cayos Holandes to meet up with our buddy Colin from Parlay Revival for a weekend cruiser regatta.

Sea-Sick as a DOG Sailing to San Blas Panama. – SV Delos Ep. 359

In this episode we explore the nature of seasickness, and with the sea-state resembling a washing machine we have our task cut out for us. With 200 NM ahead of us we set sail at night to make our passage to the San Blas Islands. Instead of a sailing family we become a puking family and struggle to safely navigate Delos, while taking care of a sick baby, all while we feel like we’re going to toss our cookies ourselves! In the end we pull it together and make landfall at sunrise in the amazing San Blas Islands!

Swarmed by Cayucos & The Coconut Telegraph in Effect! SV Delos Ep 358

Months of planning and preparation are complete and we’re off the dock and cruising again! Topped up with veggies and fruit we immediately depart Bocas Del Toro for the San Blas Islands. En-route we end up in BlueField Lagoon, a little known but very calm and peaceful lagoon in the middle of no where. We’re immediately swarmed by Cayucos who are excited and surprised to see us. They sell us lobster, and ask for pencils and books for their kids. I decide to take a picture with our instant camera and word spreads like wild fire! Before we know it Delos is swarmed by cayucos all wanting to have their photo taken. The Coconut Telegraph is in full effect and word is spreading FAST 🙂 Right up until I run out of instant camera film. We also get taken to a pretty sweet waterfall by a couple of kids that’s actually in their backyard.

Sadly 😭THIS ISN’T a Coral Reef 🐠 SV Delos Ep 357

We find an unexpected surprise on the bottom of Delos 🙂  The race to get off the dock heats up! We tackle the last of our project list which includes cleaning Delos’s bottom which has turned into an artificial reef of sorts. I’ve never seen anything like this! The soft growth is at least 8 inches long in places and it takes a few hours of hard work to clean her up. We head into town for a quick provisioning mission and I fix a last minute fuel leak before we finally untie the lines and back to our natural place floating around!

I can’t believe we found it! SV Delos Ep 356

After hearing a rumor of a bat cave running deep under the island we decide to seek it out. We spend the afternoon searching by dinghy and finally run across a man living on the edge of the jungle with his family. It just so happens that the cave is on his families land and he’s willing to guide us! He leads us through a narrow, winding jungle river followed by a muddy walk through the jungle where we find the entrance to the cave. We put on our cave gear (swim suits and headlamps) and are led through the darkness into a cave full of spiders and bats complete with a river running through it! After another 30 minutes of walking we reach the end of the cave and take a swim in a cold fresh water pool. Sierra loves it!

Off-Grid Private Island House with SHARKY neighbors & MorMor Visits! SV Delos Ep 355

MorMor arrives fresh off the plane from Sweden! We visit a friend’s off-grid over-water house complete with resident nurse shark population for amazing snorkeling, and I replace some of the crusty old lines on Delos with fresh and snazzy new ones.

After MorMor (Karin’s mom) arrives from Sweden we decide to set out on an adventure into the mangroves. As we come around the corner I spot a house and head in to take a closer look. It turns out that it actually belongs to someone we know and she invites us up for a tour of her private island, which has an amazing house built over the water complete with a resident nurse shark population. Sierra gets to snorkel with her first shark and she loves it! After snorkeling and exploring I decide to wakeboard back to Delos to tackle a project of replacing the running rigging on Delos.

Living our BEST LIFE & Watermaker DIY | SV Delos Ep 354

Dashing for the border, exploring the jungle, swimming in mangroves, and repairing our water maker is all in a few days work out here. Super-mom Kazza only got 30 days on her Panamanian Visa. So we dash for the border and cross our fingers that we’ll get to stay longer! We make it safely back into Panama and after a bit of jungle exploring on our little island we go on a dinghy adventure deep into the mangroves where we experiment with our new over/under camera housing. We get some fantastic shots and Baby Nuggs has an incredible time swimming in the clear waters. I decide to tackle our watermaker troubles and end up replacing the membranes. We are now cranking our amazing quality drinking water and Delos has never been closer to leaving the dock for the season!

Boat Project DISASTERS! SV Delos Ep 353

In this episode we nearly sink Delos with fresh water, the damn toilet gets blocked and sprays poop everywhere, the cheaply built grey water pump gear shears off, the fresh water pump quits, and the new pump is too high pressure and ends up blowing the faucet off the sink. Oh yeah, and Sierra gets peed on by a monkey. Such is boat life! At least we’re in a beautiful place and able to keep our spirits high with walks on the beach and exploring the jungle wildlife here in Panama.

Goodbye Delos! We’re off… Sailing Vessel Delos Ep 351

Over the past 18 months we’ve sailed 7,000 NM and visited 7 different countries! Now the task at hand it to prepare Delos for long term storage in the Panamanian jungle before we fly to Sweden to visit family. There are many things to be done including folding sails, vacuum bagging clothes and food, and of course servicing the mechanical components and water maker to make sure everything functions when we return. In between preparations we take a few moments to enjoy our beautiful surroundings and reflect on the amazing, incredible time we’ve had onboard with The Little Nugget.

The Hardest Part of Sailing- (Bye Bye Taylor) – SV Delos Ep. 350

The hardest thing about this lifestyle is finding new and creative ways to integrate as many “That’s What She Said Jokes” as Possible … J/K it’s really saying “Until we meet again” to all the incredible people we share our time with! In this episode it’s time for Taylor to return home to visit family and get her own boat ship-shape and ready to sail for next season. We decide to head to a dock as we also plan to fly to Sweden to visit family. On the way to the marina we get hit by a 40+ knot squall. After waiting out the blow in deep water the weather clears and we arrive at the Red Frog marina where we immediately begin a long list of projects to get Delos ready for storage in the jungle. First off is fixing the fuel dipstick, which turns into a delirious debate of twerking and “That’s What She Said Jokes”. Finally the day comes and we bid our good friend Taylor Fair Winds and send her on her way.

DRONE NAVIGATION in Uncharted Shallow Waters- SV Delos Ep. 349

The only things between us and our destination is a stretch of uncharted shallow waters.  In this video we set out for Zapatilla Cays, just on the other side of a shallow, poorly charted pass. I jump in Maggie to use the depth sounder and fly the drone while Karin and Taylor remain onboard Delos. After a few tense minutes we finally make it through and to our destination- Zapatilla Cays! We have the entire island to ourselves and celebrate by cracking open a few coconuts and enjoy mixed with local Abuelo Rum 🙂

Exploring a Mind blowing Wild Island (We’re Falling in Love Here) Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 347

In this feel-good episode we show why we’re falling in love with Bocas Delos Toro! Please support our sponsor by visiting https://kamikoto.com/delos for an incredible deal on these amazing knives! We decide to set out on a rainy dinghy explore mission and come across a spectacular speck of land miles off the coast. It’s just a speck in the ocean, but home to many exotic bird species. We anchor Maggie and swim ashore to explore this incredible island that reminds us of something out of Jurassic Park. On the way home we make a detour at the beach where we come across our first Sloth Sighting. Karin goes a little Sloth Crazy and literally waits there until it decides to move so she can capture it on camera :). We spend the evening exploring the beach, drinking cheap margaritas and pina coladas, and generally just enjoying our life the best way we know how.

Our New Backyard is PARADISE! SV Delos Ep 346

The ability to change our backyard is something we absolutely love about the cruising life. In the still heat of the morning we wake up to the paradise that is our new backyard. The conditions are perfect so we decide water sports are in order and the entire crew hits the water for a wakeboard session. Things take a sad turn when it’s time for JaeCee to fly home, but it ends in laughter when she has an un-forseen encounter at the airport…. Still laughing about JaeCee and her interesting situation we decided to hoist the hook and venture out for some exploration and snorkeling at a place called Hospital Point where we find amazingly clear water, a cool drop off, and a beach all to ourselves.

One Week At SEA… Sailors Let Loose! SV Delos Ep 345

You’ve spent one week at sea with nothing but blue all around you. A speck of green appears over the horizon. Then the smell of land hits you in the face. Suddenly you are surrounded by green jungle. It’s exciting and an assault on your senses all at the same time. So what’s the first thing you would do? In this video we show the experience of making landfall after sailing from Mexico to Bocas Del Toro, Panama. The crew is incredibly pumped and after clearing in with Immigration and Customs we immediately head into town to celebrate with drinks, dinner, and dancing. Soon we find ourselves immersed in the jungle Paradise that is Bocas Del Toro, Panama. We explore the jungle, smash ourselves in the surf, and swim with dolphins in the anchorage!

How SAILING helps you LIVE in the NOW. (Part 6 of 6) SV Delos Ep 344

Sailing brings people together in the most wonderful ways, and can help you to live in the NOW! After a week and nearly 1,100 nm sailed the crew is in the zone. We’ve fallen into a healthy cycle of sleep, eat, watch, and repeat. We’ve shared stories and intimate moments, laughs and meals. And so it’s a very bitter-sweet moment when we realize we have less than 1 day until we arrive in Panama. We make the most of it by hoisting our giant down wind sails on our dual-pole setup. It goes smoothly until a mishap with timing on our fore guy brings the pole flying back ad Jade’s head and gives her a good whack. She powers through and we ice her down, and the reward is the amazing display of flying both head sails powering Delos dead downwind. We have an incredible afternoon of sailing and douse sails just before we’re hit by a line of squalls at night. The crew reflects on what an amazing passage it’s been and how much (or how little) we’re looking forward to exploring Panama!

ROUGH SEAS- The Truth About Offshore Sailing (part 5 of 6) SV Delos Ep 343

We’ve been at sea for the better part of a week. The days, nights, and miles under the keel are flowing by at a rapid pace. The seas and winds are building and Delos is slicing through the waves towards our destination, sailing due South towards Panama. The crew officially has their sea legs and tackles some domestic tasks that we wouldn’t dare to in the first few days. Like make a gourmet iced coffee, cook a full scrambled egg breakfast for the entire crew, and some much needed eyebrow sculpturing. Plus lot’s and lot’s of hours spent sailing and staring at the horizen. This video is a glimpse into what it’s like to be on a small boat in the middle of the ocean.
