petepack is on a distinguished road
There are several places to charter from. Sunsail and Moorings are the biggest and are very good. The sailing is relatively simple in the area and you can easily sail on your own. However, you migt want to consider a flottila offered by both. You get to sail on your own but the organize the overnight anchorages and set up gettogethers with other group members ALLthis is optional but it is a good way to meet people from all over the world and you have the peace of mind of having help close by if needed. We did this a couple of years ago and it was great for first time charterers in a new area.
