Questions

I am looking at purchasing a boat, and running fishing charters as well as scuba excursions out in the Caribbean. Any idea what size vessel I should be looking at? Thank you, for your assistance.

I would have a look at what is already there and do one better.

It's a cut-throat business. I know

Totally agreed, networking and getting people to know you is critical for any small business.

Re: Questions

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Here in the islands most folks go with a powered fishing boat like a Cabo for such excursions unless you go all out for a big powered catamaran designed for nothing but a commercial snorkle tour.
kind regards,
