Looking to Charter in Baja - Options? Thoughts?

Hello,
We have a group of 4 interested in bareboating a 34-50' monohull sailboat in the Baja (La Paz, Cabo, Loreto) area in November - January of this year. We have 1 USCG captain, a very experienced sailor and 2 novices aboard. We are looking for advice on:
1 - Any bareboat charter companies (besides Moorings, too pricey for us)
2 - Owners interested in selling their Mooring time
3 - Owners interested in trading their time for a home/ski vacation in Missoula, MT. There has to be some skiier/sailors out there, right?

Thanks so much for looking!

Try Seascape charters out of La Paz

We are thinking of chartering with them this fall. They have a 42 Ft Morgan ketch and a 34 Ft Cal sloop

Reasonable prices and a beautiful cruising area

Re: Looking to Charter in Baja - Options? Thoughts?

About six years ago I tried to do the same thing and found we could get a better deal chartering out of Florida. All in with plane tickets and all we got two weeks of sailing in Florida vs only one in Mexico. I didn't know about the non-Moorings charter company. You might want to ask the question at this site -- Club Cruceros de La Paz Home Page
