Wild Card


Since 2010 Wild Card has been one of the most popular sailing trips on offer for backpackers between Panama and Colombia. Weighing in at 40 tonnes she provides much less bumpy ride in comparison to a smaller fibreglass or wooden sailboat.

Wild Card has a large deck space including an awning, ideal for lounging while anchored in the islands. 20 passengers in total can be accommodated so there is always a good mix of personalities and a fun atmosphere on board.

The boat has a full commercial licence to operate and passes all safety requirements and inspections by the regulating authorities


Wild Cards captain is Charlie. He is a popular character with all guests who travel with him.

He has been sailing since his early twenties in various parts of the world including the Caribbean and South America. Originally from South Africa he now calls San Blas home after many years operating charters and boat deliveries.

Charlie always has a great support crew on-board with him which sometimes includes his wife Nathalie and son Keenan and of course not forgetting Maxi, Wild Card’s resident dog.

(Occasionally other experienced contracted captains are used when Charlie is on vacations)
