ABOUT BLUE ORION
Blue Orion is a Hong Kong built sea worthy ketch (a two mast sailing boat) with a 27 HP inboard Engine, an auto pilot, 8 sleep spaces, a kitchen a head and a liveraft .

Often we will transfer you by small boat and an occasional wave can wet your belongings. Slippers and dry bags are practical.

Thanks to the kindness of Blue Orion's owners, there is no additional charge for boat use, if there are charges then it's for direct exspenses like fuel. We are free to use all that is onboard but what ever we loose or break we have to replace. We can sleep for free on Blue Orion, but need to bring own sheets. It sometimes is hot. For more comfort and privacy rooms can get rented in Muelle for as little as 370 for 2 persons.

On board there will be free rice meals. Only animal friendy (Vegan) foods can get brought onboard.
Strictly no smoking (Fire risk)

On shore there is a variety of shops and restaurants. The back street businesses are more economic.
