Saling charters

Hi,

We are traveling to Fiji to get married in November.

We are hoping to charter a yacht or Cat to island hop and get married along the way.

Hoping to get a bit off the beaten track and don't have a limitless budget.

Was wondering if anyone can suggest any charter operators to look at? We are in Fiji for two weeks. Looking for a charter of minimum 7 days.

Any suggestions welcome.

Just bumping this for you. There are numerous charter companies in Fiji however, having never done this kind of trip, can't recommend any particular company. There is a link in this thread: tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g294331-i883-k6… that may be useful.

Can certainly recommend Captain Cook for cruises. They also operate a sail boat that has island stays at very reasonable prices. I think you will find there are certain pre-requisites for marriage in Fiji so may be worth looking into further. I'm sure the fabulous staff at CC would be happy to assist if you decide to sail with them.

Have done some investigations via contacts re yacht charters. 'Expensive' !

Look up www.fijisafari.com (Safari charters); www.uniquechartersfiji.com www.waywardwind.com.fj www.sailingfiji.com

Most of these offer honeymoon/romantic charters - virtually anything you want.

Agree with Tez823 that legal requirements regarding a marriage ceremony/license etc. would have to be completed before 'sailing away'.
