Legalities or "non-sailing problems" with sailing to the Bahamas
After the girls leave for college (in only a few years), the wife and I would like to sail to the Bahamas on our own boat. My wife will not even discuss the trip without knowing the way you go about "entering" a foreign country, even though we have taken longer (in miles) sailing trips.
I realize it would NOT be a good thing to just show up in Freeport and say: "Hi, I'm from the US! Can I get a slip, a room and a fruity drink?"
Are there travel companies that specialize in this? is it a "do-it-yourself" project?
We have passports. WE have desire to go. Now what?
