Daily access will be a problem.. we were usually able to find an unsecured wifi connection if we were in a 'port', but with so many other, better isolated anchorages your only hope will be a nearby megayacht if one's there - but you can bet it will be secured.

"NEEDING" daily internet access will seriously cramp your cruising style unless you set up your own satellite communications, I'd guess.
