    Anyone bareboat out of Key West?


    Thinking of a quick getaway, but with the uncertainty of international travel maybe the keys is the way to go. Would like to charter a yacht for 2 or 4 people.

    I’ll be in KW first week of February. I can tell you that if you have not booked anything by now the pickings are slim. Most high end places are booked…. The nice house boats are booked….. even the shit holes are pretty much booked up.

    Looking for a two or three cabin yacht - doesn't matter if power or sail, mono or cat. Also looking at the Bahamas for more options.

    This does not help you out but throwing it out there….I was there 3 weeks ago and there was an advertisement for a 50 minute flight to Havana, a day tour, then back to KW.

    There is a thread on the WERA forum that Robby-Bobby was asking about info going to Cuba. Had some interesting feedback.

    Locked down a Bali catamaran, same model that we took out of Croatia a few years back. So, looks like this is a go.

    Hope you have fun. Are you planning to anchor. moor, or use transient slips for overnights? Please post an update when you are back. I'm planning to cruise down there in the next few years in my own boat and would love to hear about it first hand.

    We have a 1 week charter booked in Anacortes, WA next September. Planning to cruise the San Juan Islands in a Grand Banks 46 with another couple. We have no idea what to expect. I hope to anchor most nights like I do when cruising around here.

    The boat I'm looking at winds up to be over $2K per night, which is a little steep for a quick getaway. So, we're onto plan B which is to look for a rental, maybe on Sanibel.

    Been to Captiva a bunch of times but the best was when we rented a house on North Captiva…

    Turns out a buddy is headed to Puerto Rico for work when we want to travel. He got a beach-side villa and is bringing his wife along. He invited us to tag along so that made for an easy decision.
