Where to charter?


Seeing how you''ve done the BVI, I recommend you charter a boat out of St.Martin. I chartered one out of Oyster Pond,St.Martin a few years ago. Distances between islands are a little longer than the BVI, and the sailing is a little more aggressive, but it''s a very good trip. St.Barts is awesome with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The island of St.Martin is half French, and half Dutch. There are interesting stop offs on both sides. In Gustavia(Sp.) there is a whole street of excellent French restaurants. Take your lady to one--very romantic. Orient Bay is a trip somewhat on the "wild side" with a full nudist colony, but you don''t have to be a part of it if you don''t want to. The small island of Anguilla is awesome. There''s a coral reef around the island with some of the best snorkling anywhere in the Caribbean.There''s also the mystical island of Saba. It''s not a good sailing destination, but is well worth a trip over to see it''s rain forest via the hydrafoil craft. I could go on, but I have to go to my other job now.Cheers!
