I am developing a business plan to start a SCUBA/Surf/Snorkel/Sail adventure charter
business somewhere in the Caribbean
, probably the Bahamas
This is the method of financing
living on a sailboat and exploring the world that I have decided on (for now).
Does anyone have any advice on licensing required and any other logistics involved with this sort of endeavor.
I assume I'll need a captains license
(from USA?) and a divemaster certification
I'm thinking of a blue-water capable monohull
sailboat in the mid-40' range, idealy with a flush deck
, easy access to the water
, forgiving to the novice
and able to singlehand.
I'm also intrigued by electric
engines. Does anyone have experience with these?
Any and all recommendations please!
