Fort Lauderdale to Caribbean ?

I've heard that October is the best month to hitch a ride from fort lauderdale to the Caribbean? I'm wondering if fort lauderdale this is the most active place, and (relatively) simplest place to find crewing positions in Florida? And is October the best month? I'm looking into heading out there from california and want more reliable Information before I do?

Any info appreciated! Cheers!

I thought October, even mid to late October, was a little early. My employment on a cat up here ends early October.


Any advice out there for landing a crew position to the caribbean from ft lauderdale?

Have experience, references, and letters of reck, I'm thinking walking the docks is a good start?
