SailCaribe Yacht Charters

SailCaribe Yacht Charters
February 27th, 2015

If you’re in the mood to explore the islands of Culebra and Vieques, or even the Virgin Islands to the east, then perhaps you may want to visit the SailCaribe Yacht Charters. They have the biggest selection of new Lagoon catamarans, and their Jeanneau and Beneteau sailboats are fully equipped as well.

Learning to Sail

It does not matter if you don’t know how to sail. They offer American Sailing Association certification courses too. In basic keelboat sailing, you will learn to captain a 20′ to 27′ sloop-rigged keelboat during the day, with light to moderate winds and sea conditions. Basic coastal cruising lessons teach you to captain a sloop-rigged auxiliary powered 25′ to 35′ keelboat during the day when the winds and sea conditions are moderate.

Bareboat cruising lessons teach you to sail an even bigger boat for several days on inland and coastal areas, even in heavy wind and sea conditions. The Cruising Catamaran lessons are for those with sailing experience already.

Or, you can just enjoy the trip while an experienced captain does everything for you. The captains are all USCG licensed and ASA certified.

Getting to SailCaribe

SailCaribe operates from Puerto del Rey Marina in Fajardo. From San Juan, the taxi usually costs $90 but for the same price SailCaribe can arrange for a pickup at the hotel or airport.

The driver will even wait while you get ready. Your options include going to Sam’s, Costco, Super Wal-Mart and many supermarkets that carry what you may need. This may include soft-sided luggage for easier storage and to avoid damaging the woodwork and paint. Casual wear and swimsuits will suffice, although a jacket and similar clothing may be preferred for evenings. Shoes should have rubber soles.

A hat and lots of sunblock will come in hand. But you won’t need to buy or rent snorkeling equipment because they’re already included in the package.

If you don’t want to bother buying the provisions, it can be done for you for $150 for two people. Additional people can be provisioned for $19 each.

Value for Money

The fee depends on the boat you’re going to use. You’ll also need to cover fuel costs, and you need to give a $500 refundable cash security deposit when you arrive. The damage waiver fee costs $50 per night for a catamaran, and $40 a night for a monohull.

Just about everyone who has tried the boats from SailCaribe has enjoyed the experience. The boats are first-rate, and matched only by the excellence of the staff. Everything in the boat works as it should be, and no “damaged” component is overlooked or tolerated.,

The crew is professional yet friendly, so it’s like going out into the water with very knowledgeable friends. Ask as many questions as you like, and they’ll answer them. If you have a special request, it won’t feel like an imposition at all.

If you’re planning to go sailing, there’s no better option than SailCaribe Yacht Charters.
