Where to charter??? read the rest! Hi,,,,I’m so happy you’ve spent enough time to get to this sentence in this post,,,,cause you might actually be interested in bareboat chartering. So here’s my dummy advice on where to charter: wherever you want; but make sure you know what you’re getting into and you can navigate well enough to get around. Why you might ask? Well, winter bareboat chartering in the British Virgin Islands with line of sight navigation is very different from winter chartering in Greece and 1000 % different from winter chartering in Alaska! It’s that simple,,,,know where you want to go, how to navigate and what you’re getting into and then GO!
Personally, I wanted to bareboat charter in Croatia this season but the airline tickets were too expensive and we couldn’t have gone with a group of friends, because of the ticket prices. Then I looked into chartering in the Sea of Cortez in the Baja, but we already know we’re going there ourselves on our own boat,,,,so we wanted to go somewhere we don’t often get to go to. Finally, we settled on the British Virgin Islands and actually talked four other friends into going with us,,,,defraying the cost of the boat and the food. And,,,,the best part is they know what to expect from us and our kids,,,,they have some time with the kids and can stand to be around them.
So find places you want to go with things you want to do,,,,that you can afford and GO!
