In this episode we cover cost of the panama canal, how to pay, where to go, with maps to show you the way!
After cruising up and down the Ecuadorian coast we want to visit Ecuador mainland. James is going to climp Chimborazo (6,267 m) and Kim is going to visit Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest – one of the most bio diverse places on the planet.
Lucie – Kim’s friend from Berlin – will be on the boat for the next weeks, helping us through the Panama Canal, and generally being awesome.
In the last few days we found a bunch of great spots on the Ecuadorian coast. We’re very much in love with this part of the world!
Currently we’re in Ecuador, taking Zingaro apart. All of a sudden we’ve got quite a bit of space here. We’re going to put a chart table/editing table in.
130 miles out to sea we found a turtle caught up in a fisherman’s long line. We jumped in to help the little guy out.
This episode we finish our charter, say goodbye to our new friends, and explore mainland Panama. We really liked it here, and stayed for quite awhile.
We continue our journey to Panama, but not alone! With five guests we explore the San Blas Islands. A grounded ferry, Coconuts en mass & scary storms.
Dancing, with tears in our eyes… ¡Adios Cartagena! We’re leaving this dirty, cheap & wonderful place. But not without cruising the streets at night one last time. Of all the places we have been on our journey so far, Cartegena stands out. So much culture offer during the day & the night and so many young peopleContinue reading “¡Adios Cartagena! | Sailing Zingaro – Episode 25”
Cruising is hard! In this live stream we talk about the hard parts of cruising, our sailing plans for the next months,
We’re getting moored at the yacht club that I called from Panama, verified the size of the lift, and reserved a spot to get hauled out.
We’re talking about Cats vs Monos, cruising routes, our favorite places in the Caribbean and our cruising plans for the rest of this season.
We had a very rough ride from Jamaica to Colombia. We were in a hurry leaving the hurricane zone and almost flipped the boat on the way.
Zingaro is finally leaving the Cayman Islands. The ride to Jamaica started out very pleasantly, until we got smashed by a wave that killed all our electronics.
Our next destination: Archipiélago de Las Perlas (Pearl Islands), a group of more than 200 islands, 60 miles away from Panama City.
We’re giving back to the community that has made this adventure possible. We hit some major milestones this month: 1 million views, 20,000 subsribers, the Pacific.
The last glimpse of the Caribbean Sea for a while. See you again after the circumnavigation, muchachos!
It’s boat tour time. This one will be a bit different than most, as I’ve already given a tour of the layout.
Panama Canal: There is no where that a private sailboat can dock their dinghy to get to the bank to pay the fee! They make it extremely difficult for cruising sailors to do this without an agent.
