My husband and I, along with our 4-year-old daughter, had a great time sailing with Philippe and his family around beautiful San Blas. Their catamaran is suitable for families with young kids, as they have fun things for kids, such as a floating trampoline, snorkeling masks, SUP, boogie boards etc. Philippe also understands how it is with kids since he has kids of his own. Food onboard was amazing -- every meal was excellent, especially the lobster barbecue we had on the first day.
It was really interesting to take a peek into the life of a nomadic family -- how they sail around the world and homeschool at the same time. But the family has a structured life, just like normal families. Their girls are homeschooled everyday 8am to 12pm -- that means no talking to the girls during that time and not even sitting at the main table during that time. I actually never got to sit at the family's table during our whole stay, as it felt like their private space.
Honestly I felt a little unwelcomed sometimes, as though we were disturbing their family time or privacy on the boat. I got the feeling that they were tired of having people invading their privacy. That said, they still did their best to make us comfortable.
Another thing I wasn't too happy about was how little we sailed. Philippe did mention at the start that most people sail with them for three days, which allows them to sail further out to the nicer islands in San Blas. Because we only had two days, they could only stay in the area where we were picked up. But I didn't expect us to sail so little. We visited around four islands, and stayed half a day at each island which was too much in my opinion.
