Re: Flights from US East Coast to Caribbean charter destinations

That is a long trip. I would not expect prices to be low. Flew from Maine to st. Vincent in 2010 and it was at least $1000 ea.

Flying direct Boston to st. Thomas next year for a bvi charter. Flight was about $1000 for two of us. Then we take the ferry.

Direct flights will cost more. Try flights with more stops.

Chartering in the Grenedines is fun. It not for the first time charterer. Strong tr winds will sail you down the chain fine but tacking back against unfavorable winds and currents including some decent wave height is not fun for any non sailors.
