Caribbean Bareboat Sailing Charters
The Barefoot Lifestyle – No Shoes, No Stress, No Mess
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.
This was our 4th charter with Barefoot and they (the charters) have got better every time. This year we chose an almost new 40ft catamaran and she was a joy.... read more Everything on board worked as it should and the boat was really comfortable and clean. We loved having a spacious freezer and 2 fridges as that enabled us to stock up with provisions for islands where it isn't so easy to find what we like to eat. My husband skippered the boat and we hired a crew from Barefoot - he was just wonderful; kind, thoughtful and very hard working. He also caught 3 fish on the trip, gutted and cooked them too! A truly magical holiday and we will return again soon. Barefoot are highly recommended!
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!
My wife and I first came to barefoot in October 2021. We were attracted by the reasonable rates and consistent winds. We quickly fell in love with the people and... read more beauty of SVG. Just finished another week and we plan to keep returning until our own catamaran’s construction is completed. We have been fortunate enough to travel the world extensively over the last 5 years and SVG is our favorite destination. During both our trips we had complications with our personal lives back home and Thor the manager bent over backwards to assist us with things outside of his scope of responsibility. His ethics and customer centric way of running the business flows through every employee. That’s why the most common response we heard from Barefoot employees was “no problem”.
From the moment you arrive, to the moment you 'don't want to leave', Barefoot is FIRST CLASS! Constant communication prior and assistance with your airport pick up and provisions make... read more this your ONLY choice for a charter! Debbie was fantastic, Mary was amazing, and the office and reataraunt staff were great.
Our Captain and Chef THOR and MONICA are a MUST REQUEST! They are so friendly and accommodating (ask them to bring their little dog Pinky!!). Starting the mornings to the smell of bacon cooking to having 100% confidence in any boat operations makes the experience unforgettable. We recommend Tobago Cays, Bequia, and Union Island ... amazing memories!
