Marina's in Caribbean

I plan to do the Caribbean 1500 in November. I will keep my boat there until May. Unfortunately I am not retired and do not live on my boat so I will have to leave it probably half the time. I am looking in to options. I wonder how likely I could find slips availible on short notice for daily, weekly , monthly rent. I am tempted to not reserve space very far ahead of time and just leave the boat in different areas depending on where we were sailing at the time but I am fearful that I may have difficulty finding space or be faced with high fees for transcient dockage. I need good places that my boat will be safe while I am not on board. I am open to any other suggestions.

Re: Marina's in Caribbean

I have kept Callisto at Anse Marcel on the French side of St Martin for 12 years. It is a beautiful, small marina. Very safe (both weather safe and security safe), floating docks, next to the Radisson Blu hotel. NOTHING has ever been missing off the boat. Good power and RO water. I have a great guy to check on your boat, do simple maintenance and have it cleaned up and ready to go when you arrive for a week of sailing. It runs around $450/mo if you pay for 6 months at once. PM me if you would like contact info for the port captain or any additional information.
