|sailingdog||I'd imagine that if anyone were willing to do this, it would be a fairly expensive proposition, since the trip is likely to take two-to-three weeks, and chartering a crewed boat for that period of time alone is fairly expensive....much less having to compensate the owner and crew for the cost and effort to bring the boat back to the US.|

A few other points:
First, Portugal probably has some restrictions on pets being brought into the country as well.
Second, really, really unlikely as the person who did this would then have to get their boat back to the US from Portugal.
Third, the best time to cross the Atlantic, west-to-east, is about this time of year. Anything after June runs the risk of getting caught out in a hurricane.
Fourth, they would need to have crew, unless you and your three companions know how to sail.

I know this isn't very likely to happen, but I am looking for travel options, even through non-conventional travel. I know travel can be a bit of a challenge with pets, but if I don't ask, the answer would be no anyway.

|sailingdog||This isn't very likely to happen. That would require a fairly large boat and a commercial insurance policy.... and most owners wouldn't allow pets aboard in any case.|
