Yea that is the problem with STT, the ferry connection is much to tight. SXM is not bad way to get to the BVI, Lait has flights till late at night

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...

Re: Destination recomendation

I think, Dubai is a great location for yacht chartering, cruising, sailing and another different and unique kind of tour is the desert safari.

Re: Destination recomendation
