Charter Work In The Caribbean

I'm considering getting my 50-ton USCG license and was wondering if there's much work to be had in the Caribbean (USVI's possibly), or is the area saturated with available captains? Thoughts?

There are jobs there even a 25 ton will suffice. Some companies also require you get stcw basic as well.

Another factor to consider is that burn out rate is high in the charter industry so the need for new captains/crew is frequent.
