      Once you are there, why not stay longer? Additional days can be added up to the limit of the Cuban Visa. Ask for Details.

      $4500 per cabin$13,500 for the charter. You will be spending lots of close time with the other guests while sailing and on the day tours, so we suggest that you find friends to occupy all three cabins to share these special experiences with.

      $900/day for each extra day in Cuba.

When we enter Cuba, there is an additional $75 fee/person to file the Cuban Visa.

BVI's Rates


We will be your personal captain and concierge! Enjoy the security of a seasoned Captain who has sailed here for 30 years.

Well before the start of the charter, we will have extensive conversations about your meals, activities and desired destinations. From this I will create a detailed menu/provisioning list and sailing itinerary. During this pre-planning, we will also talk about special activities and tours that you wish to enjoy. We will talk about routing options for your flights into the charter destination. When the day of the charter arrives, I will arrive a day before you to inspect the charter boat and co-ordinate provisions, permits, regulations, provisions, day tours, scuba.

During the trip we will prepare all of ll the meals and co-ordinate activities.

Rates are $575/day plus expenses. All charters require a minimum of an 8 days. There is a 25% premium during Holiday season, which is a week either side of Turkey Day and Christmas.


Florida Keys Rates


We suggest that you book Kia Ora for a 7 day trip. I have found that it takes 7..8 days for one to finally become relaxed and disengaged from the demands of life. The minimum charter is 5 days.  During your charter we will prepare all breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Let us know what water toys you would like to have, or special occasions you want to celebrate!! Our goal is to make your sail with us a special memory!! 

Rates are $575/day plus expenses. A 25% premium applies during holiday weeks.
