My fiancee and I (both 30 yrs) are planning a trip to the windward Caribbean for our honeymoon in April/May 2014. We would love to go sailing for 5-7 days, and I researched quite a bit online. It seems that this is fairly expensive. Preferably, we would like to sail from Dominica and around Guadeloupe, but it is also an option to sail from St. Lucia and around Martinique.
We are open to all kinds of boats, and both travelling with other people or alone, but it would have to be crewed by at least a skipper, as we are not trained sailers.
Our budget is around 2500 USD (food not included) in total for a week. Is this even possible? All the companies I found online are almost the double a week.
Anyone done anything similar? Any thoughts on the suggested destinations, or things I should be aware of, or suggestions where to look for information?
Thanks a lot for your help!
