Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao; also known as the ABC islands.

Re: Bareboat Companies around the ABC Islands

This is not a real good sailing area unless you plan to mostly use the boat as a hotel. The only island with a few possibilities is Curacao. Sailing east will be no fun, always against wind and current. You could sail from Bonaire to Curacao and on to Aruba leaving the boat there. I am not aware of bareboat chartering in Bonaire or any of these islands though.

On the lee shore of Aruba you will sail by seven refineries before reaching the beach. Not an idyllic setting.

Bonaire is great diving, but not great sailing. There is no anchoring permitted. The only overnight moorings are by the main town. Its nice, but not a sailing charter destination like the VIs. Curacao is more a work islands.
