Sailing Family to Puerto Rico

I'm looking for a fun and educational way to cruise/sail my family of 8 from FL to Puerto Rico.

Does anyone have any thoughts or referrals to a group or company that can help with this?

Thanks

Robb

Re: Sailing Family to Puerto Rico

The only idea that occurs to me is a crewed charter. Not my area of expertise but google "crewed charters" or "captained charters" for Florida or the Caribbean and you will find lots of options.

A crewed boat large enough to carry eight passengers would probably start at $10-$15,000/week and go up from there. Florida to PR is close to 1000 miles upwind so could be a bit of a trip. If you take your time to see the sights could easily take a month. I did in in two months and could have taken longer but had to get back to work.
