Last minute charter

Hey guys,

A friend and I are trying to set up a last minute bareboat charter in the Caribbean for early November. I've contacted websites like and also a few individual companies.

It seems that the availability for boats is low with the seasons changing, but does anyone have any other creative ideas for finding a last minute deal?

Thanks for the info!

Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

Re: Last minute charter

Where do you want to be? What kind of boat? How many people? What's your budget? What's your date range?

Providing some detail may provide more responses. For example, I can rent you a kayak, will that meet your requirements?😀

Re: Last minute charter

How about Cuba... Primarily chartered by Germans and the season hasn't really started for them yet.

You get to charter and see some really interesting things..

Here is one company that charters out of Cienfuegos
