Sailors have been exploring the Caribbean for centuries, and traveling by boat remains one of the best ways to experience the islands. Thousands of sailors bring their boats down to the Caribbean each year, but you can also get an authentic and exhilarating sailing experience by chartering a monohull or catamaran sailboat or motorboat and plotting your own course to adventure.
This course will provide you an overview of Caribbean sailing destinations, introduce you to the top chartering options in the region, and help you decide whether to captain your own ship as a bareboat charter or sail with a hired captain (and perhaps a chef, too) onboard.
