Imagine dinner on the deck of your private catamaran with the sun setting over the numerous San Blas islands that dot the horizon. Or do you visualize yourself and your family diving the cays and catching your own lobsters, catching that prize marlin off the continental shelf of the Pearl Islands, or letting loose with your friends amongst other yachts in party mode off the shore of Isla Taboga.
Find yourself on tropically secluded, palm tree filled islands and peaceful coves, off the beaten path and inaccessible by road, unspoiled islands rising out of crystalline waters. Or how about waking up for a tranquil morning swim in clear waters of the Pearls, followed by an afternoon lunching in Contadora?
Whether you crave escape-from-society solitude, cultural trips and tours, thrill packed watersports, or want to host an event / party for family and friends - there is a yacht, an activity, and a destination with your name on it.
With a Highlife charter yacht holiday, you’ll experience the best of Panama and its abundance of natural beauty.
Travel the way you want
Want to take in the views in style with luxury cruisers that have all the amenities like open bar, freshly prepared food, personal valet, and ample guest quarters for private moments?
Or do you want to soak up the sun and ride the wind on a 57' Catamaran?
Maybe battle a swordfish on a sport fishing boat all geared up for deep sea fishing?
Depending on your budget and the number of guests, we'll help you get the right-sized vessel for the excursion you want!
Just want to Party
When it's time to party, no one does it better! Our Yacht Parties feature an open bar, a fully equipped sound system, transportation to and from the marina, and of course, a visit to Isla Taboga!
A typical itinerary includes 4-8 hours on the water, pitching anchor at Isla Taboga close to other like-minded partying vessels. Then you can stay on board and party, or jump off the boat and soak up the sun. Or go ashore and explore the town's great local restaurants and large public beach. What happens at sea stays at sea, so feel free to get wild and enjoy the High Life!

I was so pleased we were able to get a private charter organized at the last minute for the group of us that were traveling together. While it was difficult to get in touch with the reservations/coordinator of the charter via telephone/email, he was very responsive to whatsup app so it worked out well. We also had trouble locating the boat once we got to the end of the causeway so make sure to clarify (we lost a full hour since it took us a while to find the captain). We headed to the Pear Islands with a captain and first mate on a 32' motor boat, which was a good size for us. Any more people and it would've been tight. The captain and first mate were so accommodating, but I would definitely suggest asking them to bring you to the private/isolated beaches and bays first as they are far more beautiful and interesting to explore than the main harbor where you can grab lunch at a local restaurant. We were able to bring snacks, water and alcohol onto the boat, play our own music, and just really enjoy the day. I loved it and would have given a five star rating if communication had been a bit easier and we'd gone straight to the private beaches first. But please do keep in mind, we were very last minute in our plans and Highlife was more than willing and able to accommodate us - cannot highlight that enough!

Fantastic rental of a HUGE catamaran
We rented an absolutely massive catamaran that easily could have fit 80 people, but there were just 30 of us, so it was very nice and roomy. We took it out for half a day and also rented a speed boat to do some water skiing. Jeff and the crew at Highlife Yachts could not have been more accommodating. From picking us up in a nice bus and getting us to the Marina to all of the helpful advice and guidance they gave us in advance of the trip, I couldn't have been more pleased. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to them -- they did an outstanding job.
With 1,547 miles of coastline on both the Pacific and Caribbean Oceans, Panama was meant to be experienced by sea.
On the Pacific Side
Not far off the coast of Panama City, you’ll find treasured Islands, whales, sea turtles, and luxurious beachside communities like Taboga and Playa Blanca.
Take in the harbor view of Panama's Skyline, which has the third most skyscrapers in the Western Hemisphere (behind New York City and Chicago), which provides a great backdrop for your yacht adventure any time of day, but is most beautiful during a sunset dinner cruise.
Or discover the Pearl Islands where Jeff Probst extinguished the torches of many hopeful survivors before exclaiming, "You've been voted off the island!"
On the Caribbean Side
Whether you take a one-of-a-kind ride through the Panama Canal to get to the Caribbean, or launch your yacht experience directly from the city of Colon, the Caribbean side with its clear turquoise waters, snorkel friendly wildlife, and the uniquely beautiful San Blas islands is a destination not to be missed. There is no shortage of great destinations during a multi-day cruise in this equatorial paradise.
