What we are looking for is somewhere that is inexpensive but warm, good sailing and where we can also do some diving. I was thinking about Florida as it is inexpencive to fly there and only a 35 hour drive if we decide to go that way. But wonder what the costs would be for everything else. Basically looking for a good value on sailing and diving.
The suggestions so far are good, and there is no doubt that the Caribbean has excellent sailing and diving. The cost may be higher, but have you considered New Zealand or Oz? The Bay of Islands are great (NZ), however for superb diving then anywhere around the Barrier Reef would be fantastic...
