There's once again a charter operation in Fajardo. Sail Caribe seems to be a mix of a Charter and SailTime management operation. Has anyone chartered from them?
Yup - just did a week in early Feb w/them. SVI's were great. Sail Caribe was great to work with. Wasn't sure we'd like the Hunters, but they worked out OK. They also have Lagoon cats - if multihulls are your thing. I'd go back again.

Were the Spainsh Virgins crowded?

Anyone else been to the SVIs who can commment? I have no data at all to support this, but the proximity to Puerto Rico seems to me could mean a lot of power boaters. From my limited knowledge of the area, it looks to be a pretty cool destination.

I'm considering a trip and I'm sure time of year makes a difference on crowds. I'm thinking early February.

Nope. Not compared to the BVI's. Sure some of the popular / closer anchorages do get a little crowded, but mostly on the weekends. During the week we went, we had many anchorages almost to ourselves. It was blowing pretty good and most days there were small craft advisories which may have kept the stinkpots in port - but from what I've read, the SVI's tend to be pretty uncrowded in general. It is a cool destination. We had a migrating humpback glide past us at anchor - how cool is that!

Great, that was what I was hoping to hear. Thanks Ted. I sent a request for more info off to Puerto Rico Yacht Charters.

The humpback sighting is incredible.
