and Easy Destinations
What I’m looking for here is some detail from all you well experienced and wise folks that have been there and done that.
Some of the well known cruising destinations are well known for busting budgets before you even step off the boat. Sure we all need the big ports
at some stage but I want to avoid them as much as possible and stick to the serenity of life.
So I’m looking for places where you can anchor
out in some comfort at little or no cost. Malaysia
, Pacific Islands, South Africa
, anywhere you’ve been. I believe Indonesia
requires an itineraryto be put in before a permit
is granted but I need to know what places rather than pick them from a ten year old guide book.
Actual place names would be great as well as what it cost in official costs.
Plus what it cost in those sneaky costs, like did it cost to tie your dinghy
up for the day?
Was there an anchoring
Was there a backhand payment that had to be made?
Was there a clearing out fee?
I’m happier giving a gift to a small village than paying some make believe fee to a corrupt official.
In short I’d rather spend my money
in small communities than have it extorted.
Hopefully I can put it all in a database or spreadsheet and others can enjoy it as well.
Perhaps it’s a naïve concept
but any help would be appreciated.
