So much action in this episode! Spearfishing, shark fishing, storm sailing, and sweet sweet sailing. If you’ve got the itch to cut the lines and head offshore, this episode will do it for you.
We’re coming at you from the Seca Islands, Panama, one of our secret spots on the world. If you all get a chance, go there. Seriously.
We really enjoyed this episode, making it and editing it. Hope you enjoy watching it. We are uploading it from some sketchy hostel, because this is the only place with internet in Puerto López (Ecuador) at night!
See You soon,
James and Kimmi

Theres nobody here. It’s paradise. The weather is perfect, the sea is calm, and the spearfishing is amazing. Follow us for an amazing journey into the untouched and rarely visited Isla Secas.
They’re often passed up by cruisers, because it’s hard to slog up the coast towards Costa Rica. Furthermore, there isn’t any widespread knowledge about these islands.
That is the kinda place I want to be. And this time it worked out so well… What a beautiful island chain. It’s very close to Isla Coiba (World Heritage site and same underwater archipelago as Galapagoes). Just amazing.
Hope you like!

After a lot of work we decided to go back to what we do best: Sailing! 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!

In this Episode we find Tintipán, the most beautiful place we’ve seen on our travels so far. There’s a lagoon in this island that has one of the most dense photo-plankton occurrences in the world. Seriously it’s one of the most amazing underwater experiences. We both got naked and jumped in at night, with no moon, and it looked like we were on fire.
We’re currently in Boca Chica, Panama. Very close to the border to Costa Rica. We’ve been out here exploring the islands and went spearfishing every day! We really have to get back in form, after TWO months without water to swim in (we don’t count James’ swim in the Canal).
We met up with Caryn and Gary from s/v Illimite in Grand Cayman and they took us out to one of the most beautiful dive sites! This particular one is at ~65ft. There are over 300 mooring balls surrounding the island for boats to use so they don’t have to anchor and potentially damage the reef! That’s genius. Well done.
We saw rays, moray eels, turtles, groupers, and tons of species of fish.
Finally done with the first episode! Super exited to share this. Flew from Hawaii to Ft Myers, Florida to look at a catamaran, and ended up living there for 2 months while refitting and getting her ready for sea. It was tough, and a great learning experience. I’ve video-documented much of the process, and will be putting out detailed how-to videos, maybe they will help someone in their journey.
In this video we get a walkthrough on how to change the bands on your speargun. Good skill to have when sailing around the world… The salty air rots these bands FAST! I keep the spare rubber in the refrigerator.
