I'd go with Lets go cruising in the Bahamas. If you want to reach out to them Call Chris Bent (410)-263-2311 and tell him Harry Lavallen referred you

I did figure the st. thomas thing out - ferry is $60 round trip.

I was looking at around $600 per person with the ferry. Alternately you can fly into san juan for $350 and privately charter a twin cessna through flybvi to take you straight to tortola. That is $800 per person (got 6 going)

If you checked flights into BVI, they are expensive. Flights from major US hubs to St. Thomas, which is next door, and taking the ferry over is substantially less expensive.

Re: Bahamas or keys charter

Im currently sitting in the Abacos on my own sailboat, but just for shits I was looking around today online of the different charter companies down here where there have been quite a few charters anchored around me...I found to be a little better then the moorings....$3700 for 7 days on a 39 sun odyssey once again it was just from curiosity of what people were paying for 7 days vs my montly budget....out here...Marsh Harbor is probably the best bet and there are a couple otheres around besides the moorings...

Bahamas or keys charter

Looking for info on bareboat charters for a 39-43' monohull out of the bahamas or keys for 5-7 days.

Specifically looking for the best value - I am used to older equipment and don't want to pay the premiums for a charter from the moorings etc...

I have done several moorings charters with my parents - sunsail as well. I was looking at conch charters in the BVI's (seemed like a great deal) but the cost of airline travel down there is prohibitive.

A 39-43' monohull is what I am used to sailing and that would be preferred - but I am open to other options. A good deal on a cat or even a trawler would be considered.

I'm also curious about the qualifications for bareboat charter. I have lots of time on the water in boats of this size but I am only 26 yrs old.

Any suggestions appreciated.
