Caribbean Bareboat Sailing Charters
The Barefoot Lifestyle – No Shoes, No Stress, No Mess
From the moment we arrived all the staff at Barefoot Yacht Charters made us feel welcomed. The boat was wonderful and the food was healthy and delicious. We loved everything... read more about our trip.
I booked a trip through Barefoot in April of 2020 thinking covid would turn around by November of 2020. In late August 2020 I determined I would cancel because... read more of uncertainties with flights and quarantine requirements. The company refunded me above the required refund on the charter agreement. They understood and were empathetic of the situation, which can not be said about many other companies I have dealt with during these times. The honest business practices will certainly make me a customer once all of this blows over- they aren't here just to take your money.
Additionally the booking process itself was seamless. Debbie was able to answer my questions and make tweaks to my original request to work with my schedule. Overall very pleasant experience despite unfortunately having to cancel.
The Grenadines are a wonderful area to sail with beautiful island destinations. My wife and I had a wonderful experience on Lady Di, and the staff at Barefoot are very... read more accommodating, helpful and friendly! The food and drinks at the Driftwood restaurant are also great!
My husband and I are first-time sailors, and we enrolled in the BOSS with Barefoot Charters. We were matched with an instructor and one other student, and spent 7 glorious... read more nights on a live aboard 38' Lagoon sailing the Grenadine Islands together. We spent the days making our way south to Bequia, Chatham Bay, Mopion, and the Tobago Cays. Nights we made anchor in safe harbours next to the lobster beach BBQs and shared sunsetters at the floating bars. How amazing was that!
We highly recommend the adventure, and are looking forward to our new retirement hobby. Thank you Brian and Jimmy, you are both patient and skilled, and shared your local knowledge so we could get the most out of our holiday! We will be back!
We (2 couples) booked a 7 day private charter with Barefoot, incl. an instructor/captain and a chef. We did our ASA 101 to 104 certificates and sailed for a week... read more in perfect (very windy, 20 to 30 knots) conditions. Brian, the captain/instructor was very patient and a great teacher. He gave us a lot of confidence and clear instructions.
We sailed to several smaller Islands, anchored in beautiful bays, and had an amazing time. The chef, Monica, jumped in last minute as she is usually the manager of their restaurant but the original chef got sick.
The whole team at Barefoot was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We loved every second of the trip and want to come back in 2023!!!
At Barefoot, our philosophy is simple and our lifestyle is sweet. Through our commitment to you experiencing your ultimate vacation, clean sailing, our use of locally produced organic provisioning and our responsible operating practices, we hope to protect and enhance your experience while improving the world we share with all living things.
