Hello Juice, Late, as always, to the party. Yes, you can charter a yacht, sailboat, cat or tri-hull and I suppose it all depends on what you are looking for in your vacation. There is one charter working out of Granada, a reasonable-sized sailboat, which comes complete with Captain and crew (of 1 or 2), and specializes in sailing/diving vacations. The boat comfortably carries (IIRC) 8 passengers and a week-long charter runs about $1100 per person, including food. Out of Bequia, there are several for-charter cats and tri-hulls, unfortunately, I don't have the $$$ on them. Unless you were extremely knowledgeable, I wouldn't recommend going into a "bare-boat" charters. Depending on where you want to play, the navigation can be tricky ... waters around the Bahamas and Virgin Islands can be very shallow and reefy for example. Also, I'm not sure what certification or licensing you might need for this. When/if/ever ole Windjammer Barefoot stops sailing the old restored ships from the 30's, I'll have to go in search of another method of cruisin' Until then, tho', you'll find me perched happily on Mandalay, Polynesia or Yankee Clipper; doin' the remote and not-so-remote islands. And, if I ever get my PADI certification, I would definitely be contacting Captain Julian down in Grenada for a week of sailing/cruisin' in the Grenadines. DPa/k/a Bodacious Beachlizard of Bequia
