Caribbean Commissioning and Outfitting

Where in the Caribbean are the best commissioning and outfitting spots? I am currently in Chaguaramas and headed North. Should I do everything here or wait until Antigua or St. Maarten?

Since you’re already in Trinidad, why not check out price & availability of the supplies & services you require.

Budget Marine is everywhere, and plently of people make destination to right where you are for refits. I found St. Maarten an inexpensive place also....duty free....i2f

Thumbs up Grenada

I was in Grenada 5 years ago and found the people very helpful and the prices not bad.

If you are a "Vessel in Transit" you can register your vessel with the chandleries and purchase Duty Free.

If you need a place to stay, try the Lazy Lagoon Cottages, and a reliable driver call Kens Taxi.

Cheers

I'm fighting currents to get back to you, listening to the flow of your liquid language as you beckon me, "Come Play"
