Key West -->Cuba and back, urgent charter request

Hello Cruisers Forum!

I am a graduate student looking to charter a vessel for myself and 3 others from Key West to Cuba and back, departing KW December 12th and returning the 18th/19th.

We had chartered a vessel but the captain just notified us that due to extreme weather conditions, he sustained damage near Cape Canaveral and had to be towed by the Coast Guard. His boat will not be fixed in time, and we are on a rather tight deadline.

I and my three collaborators are working on a project commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, so the visit falls under the Professional Research visa category.

Please direct message me if you or anyone you know might be interested in this journey. We can offer a modest sum.

Contact Spree Expeditions. They probably can't do this on such short notice, but they were the first US dive boat to get permission to go to Cuba. If they don't know who can take you, not sure who else might.

Does this mean the boat and crew that you charter, gets to go to Cuba all legit? You would be paying for my vacation in Cuba while you study whatever for how long?
