Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

To be legal you would need export/import licenses for each country; a customs broker in each country; and a retail business license and work permit for each country. Same as anybody else big and small who is currently doing the same thing.
- - What folks asking these questions fail to realize is that every country in the world has a government and government officials - lots of them - and in some places the government is the primary or largest employer in the country. All of these governments and officials want a "cut of the action" of anything involving money/goods. And they can get downright nasty if they don't get their "cut." This can be very hazardous to your financial and/or physical health.
- - Even little sand spits with people living on them like in the Panama San Blas or South Pacific, you have to visit the "Chief" and convey to them a gift/fee or participate in a ceremony involving "kava" you brought to them for the privilege of visiting/walking on their sand
- - However, If you were only going to use the stuff you brought to "barter" or gift somebody who is doing work on your boat, then you could probably sneak through as "ship's stores."

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

I agree that making money while cruising is a big opportunity because not all people can get that but don't forget that the most important is the value of our life and how we handle things in the right way.

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

thats so true atoll, how much can you carry at the end of the day that you could say it is for your own use, Unless its illegal stuff from Mexico that gets "smoked"or sniffed LOL other wise its import & export licenses & then you have taxes to pay , i would just do small things that is not worth talking about, but helps others in a small way

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

"The dream" is to take clients out on private scuba tours. The plan is to leave port with nondivers and return with clients that have 20+ diver under their belt a week later.- Its not curising but thats the plan.

Good luck on that idea - are you a certified instructor and have DAN training and insurance for dive accidents? If so, fine - but be aware there is a surplus of that type operation these days just about everywhere due to the worldwide economic collapse and shrinking of the tourist industry.
- - But things always change and in the future the economy may perk back up again and there will be plenty of clients available.

Yes to all of the above. Advanced open water, Jr. Open water, speciality instructor and Tech instructor (ITC), heck if I could make enough just to pay my insurance I might be happy with that. Currently this is what I do (250 miles inland) as a second job. Like I said its "the dream".

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

Then your "dream" might become reality in the future when things turn "up" again. Timing is everything. . .
- - Economic downturns always "shake out" or eliminate marginal operations and when things turn up again there is a shortage of those who can provide the needed services.

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

What about "Transporting" goods from one country to another, while cruising through various countries?

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

Hing the export and import permits for the country of origin and the country of destination is not the problem. What happens in the countries in between? I would not be buying or selling the goods there, only cruising on my way to my final destination.

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

How about online "shows". Lots of agencies and all you need is a computer, internet, and a cam. I didn't read the whole thing, anyone suggest this yet?
