Check out this video about chartering.

BVI - Norman - Caves - Glass Sweepers In 3rd CaveIf you want you can do absolutely nothing but lie in the sun, playBVI - Saba Rock - Hamock in the water, and snorkel the reefs as if you were IN an aquarium.  If you are feeling a little more adventurous you can help sail the boat and I will teach you as much as you would like to learn.  Your charter gives you access to all the equipment aboard the vessel including snorkel gear for diving on the reefs, beach gear for lying around in the sand, bicycles for land tours, a kayak for your paddling desires, fishing gear to appease your hunter/gather side, and other toys socked away USVI - St Croix - Whim Plantation - Wind Millfor USVI - St John - Waterlemon - Reefyou to discover.

$6000, plus your expenses, is all it takes to charter the Guiding Light for 8 days and 7 nights.  You can bring up to six people, which will share three queen size cabins.  I am charging significantly less than most other catamarans, which will run you $10,000-$15,000 a week, because I love showing adventurous, easy going, fun loving people the sights and joy of my lifestyle.  The Charter - Munson - Looking Over The Bowtypical expenses are provisioning ($100-$200 per person per week), BVI Fees ($250-$400 total per week), moorings ($200 total per week), and fuel/water/ice ($100-$200 total per week).
