Panama The Party and Coconut Point (Punta Coco)

May 6, 2011

Panama Update: Where do we begin with so much that has transpired. I’ve missed the last few days but I hope to be back on track from here on.

Lets back up to the morning of May 1st and our arrival into Panama city…

What a skyline

…and sky…with the weather rotating from intensely hot to torrential downpours. We had a few days before the reception party to receive all our supplies, new staff and get the ship ready…

…all hands were on deck…

…Elke, Pierre, Mark, Lizebeth and Chris are visible in this part of the chain gang as supplies made it from the trucks to dry store…

Lindsay headed up this gang.

Working on the new decals were Sam and Mark…

…looking good boys! You too ladies…

Tobey and Steph do their best Vana White impressions while presenting the wine. Fishing Captain Junior and deckhand Blondie prep the 35 foot strike…

The fruit looks fantastic…

…not to mention gargantuan. Inside Captain Andrew, Brian Grange and Brian Legge enjoy a few moments watching the “welcome to Panama video”…

The ship starts to look like a WCFC resort…

Brian and Screamer discuss the placement of the last banners…

Michael and his kitchen team do the final prep for the party…

…and then its showtime!

The upper deck was a great place to take in the city at a glance

The back bar was a popular hangout

and the guests mingled throughout the ship taking in the lounge, dinning room and staterooms. It was a great party highlighted by a welcome speech from Brian Legge…the last guests wandered home around 12:30-1:00am and with a final toast the reception was over.

On the morning of May 5th we threw the lines and headed for our final destination in Punta Coco…

…and for the first time we saw the Las Perlas Islands…

Brian Legge mentions to me casually:

“…offering luxury world class fishing in the most wild and remote settings…”

He’s right Its wild out here! The ocean literally teems with life…

…although it looks like rain…ITS NOT…there were baitballs and fish slashing the surface everywhere. I’d heard great things but I had no idea it would be this rich.  It was too much for Captain Andrew and Frank to resist we stopped the Pacific Provider, they grabbed their spearguns and took off in the 25 whaler to see if they could catch us (spear us) dinner. From left to right you’ve got Me, Patrick and Screamer in the water, Captain Andrew on the transem and Frank looking for prey…

Stephanie and the rest of the crew take a minute on deck to watch the fearless hunters…

Patrick and Carlo have been catching all the action of film…

…nice tan Patrick.

By the time we pulled into our new home in Punta Coco it was dark.

May 5th, 2011 at 1900 hours after nearly 1900 miles and years of preparation…

WE ARE HERE

Stay tuned tomorrow…
