Hello, my boyfriend and I are thinking of booking a trip to St. Maarten the end of Jan. and we were thinking of booking a small boutique hotels for about 4 days and then trying to rent a sailboat with a skipper for two days and tour around. I have looked online at some charters. Does anyone have a recommendation. I am surprised at how expensive they are as well. If you want say just a 30ft with someone to help you. We do sail well actually I am a beginner and he sails! and we have a 21 ft sail boat here in canada. I know you can rent a 21ft for a few hours or so, but we were thinking of overnight, and then I guess the question is the skipper stays with you on the boat where you dock? As well I was looking into Le Petit Hotel, a bit over our budget but looks really nice, although they say minimum of 7 days requested?
thanks, for any advice.
