We took a seven day (once in a lifetime) journey with Jules and Louis through the San Blas Islands in August 2017. Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped foot aboard the Freya. She is a beautiful sailboat and was clean, comfortable, and safe. Jules and Louis are wonderful hosts that have decades of experience and knowledge to share. Our days were spent snorkeling, swimming, eating, drinking, resting, exploring, playing cards, meeting new people from around the world, and most importantly enjoying the natural beauty of the San Blas Islands. Jules is a fantastic cook with a special touch for preparing healthy and delicious foods that were fresh and local. The mid-day banana smoothies were delicious! Louis is ALWAYS a calm, cool, and collected captain. He made sailing look easy even though it is anything but easy or simple. We were in excellent hands with Louis and Jules! We sailed to different areas of the San Blas Islands and had the unique experience of interacting with and learning more about the Kuna Indians. Each island had one or more families of Kunas residing on it and each family was unique and fascinating. The Kunas were very familiar with Jules and Louis and therefore, also visited us aboard Freya. Louis and Jules were gracious in sharing their knowledge of local snorkeling areas on reefs. The sights were unforgettable. We snorkeled and swam in areas that were pristine and isolated. What a gift to have this experience. Our short week with Jules and Louis on the Freya will last a lifetime in our memories. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!Nichole and Susan
We had an extraordinary experience with Louis and Jules at Freya.Ana, Marina and Rodrigo from Brazil
San Blas is beautiful, it is a great scenary, but most of all they are wonderful hosts, lots of experience, rich life, interesting histories and great heart. They’ve spoiled us. The food is superb!!! Jules cooking is delicious, creative, very fresh and healthy.
They were always ready to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, meaning it staying in the beach as long as we wished, put a hammock so we can relax and see the full moon, even making it possible to give a last jump in the ocean just before leaving.
It was something that enchanted us so much that we’re definitely planning to stay with them again. We left with the feeling that we had known them for a long time.
We already miss them!
After departing the general area of the other boats and island hotels, we arrived at Freya to find our prayers answered. The relief of Captain Louis’ firm handshake welcoming us aboard and Jules hug immediately gave us the impression that we were joining friends and not a charter. This impression only grew stronger throughout or visit and we plan to remain friends long after our departure three days later. Upon boarding, we were quickly settled and given an orientation to yacht living on this free roaming vessel, which is even bigger inside than it appears from the outside with spacious cabins, comfortable dining room, good facilities and three of the most-rare attributes of any accommodations in the San Blas Islands. Captain Louis and the Freya have (1) Air Conditioning, Fresh Water Generation and real sea captain qualifications that keep you safe in the event of a real-world emergency. Louis holds his 100-ton vessel license and is a U.S. Navy veteran, while Jules is also high qualified as a mariner and great chef. Both are excellent chefs as were treated to lobster, fresh Kuna bread and an abundance of meals and snacks throughout our visit. While on Freya, we snorkeled over the reefs with the gear Freya provided, while being personally guided by Louis swimming beside us towing the dingy in case we grew tired. We picnicked with other families anchored nearby with the understanding that Freya is part of an international community of sailing peoples. Our time aboard Freya offered us access to this community of spirited adventurers. We likewise enjoyed the extremely rare opportunity to meet and share time with the local native Kuna families that Louis and Jules call friends. It was fascinating to understand their customs and culture first hand, which very few other services offer in an authentic manner. We purchased their native, hand made products as gifts for our families and were allowed to visit their homes on a nearby island. Captain Louis and Jules work tirelessly as a team to produce a free ranging experience, which you for want of nothing between a cold beer, rum drink, delicious food and good conversation with new friends. In between, you are shuttled with Freya’s dingy by Louis to nearby beaches, snorkeling, swimming off the boat or laying under the stars in a hammock with the warm Caribbean breeze and moonlight as a constant companion. If I sound overly romantic in this review, it’s because we achieved more rest, recovery and renewal in three days on Freya than a week at an all services beach resort. Truth. There is something about sleeping on a big sailboat that gave us rest like nothing I have experienced elsewhere. Friends, consider Captain Louis, Jules and Freya for your San Blas get away. The well-executed logistics support plan, professionalism, attention to detail, ambiance, spacious lodging, first class meals, safety, air conditioning, fresh water generation and overall experience in the company of new friends will leave you with an unforgettable San Blas experience for your hard-earned dollars.Colonial Jack Mosier / Maine USA
