So my grandparents are setting up a family
reunion of sorts this summer and want to get us all together on a cruise ship
to the Eastern Caribbean
, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.
I'm wondering if while I'm out there it would be worthwhile to rent/charter a boat for a day. Keep in mind we'll only be in each port for 9 hours. Most sites I've found are only offering 38'-60' foot boats for weekly rentals for thousands of dollars. I'm more looking for a 20'-30' boat for a couple hours for much less money
. Does anyone know of any places that would do such a rental?
I'm 24 and have a 22' boat i use to sail around the inland waterways here. I'm mostly stuck in Tennessee while I save money
for an offshore
boat and a cruising kitty for a future journey. Basically I'm trying to figure out if theres a way for me to get any useful experience out of the trip. I'd love to at least get to see some boats that are actually rigged for ocean sailing rather than lake cruising!
