Couldn't resist!!!!!

There are no scheduled boats - i.e. ferries or cruise ships if that's what you mean.

There are sail boats that head out from Panama to Ecuador (usually the Galapagos Islands) as a stop on their way across the Pacific.

That is happening now - this flow dries up in April as it starts to get close to the hurricane season and then it's too iffy to make this passage.

There is no easy way to get on as crew - you need to hang around the marinas/yacht clubs, get to know who's going where, meet different boat owners and maybe one of them will let you travel with them.

Hope this helps,

Andrew
