    The only bareboat that I’ve rented has been a Contender from Ocean Must. Ocean Must’s largest Contender isn’t rented as a bareboat, only with their Captain, due to “insurance requirements”. I have seen crewed catamaran charters, but no bareboat catamaran charters.

    Hi all, beyond thrilled to be visiting the island for the first time since Irma. It has been far too long and we are so anxious to be back. This will be our family's 10th visit to the island (have been coming since '88!), but we've never before chartered a boat for a day trip. We are sailors, and are looking to rent a catamaran for a few hours to be able to see the island by boat. Are there any companies that offer bareboat charters for half-day trips? I haven't had much luck in my preliminary research. Any advice would be so appreciated!

    Absolutely not! On each visit I make to CEC, I'm becoming more grateful for our small corner of "Paradise" . . . and appreciate sharing with others who similarly value it!

    It’s back at Tamarin, but as a different version. The current version is paired with Smoked Tuna.

    Looks delicious. Regarding similar item at Tamarin, I think that it has been dropped from the menu . . . which is too bad because it also was delicious!

    Season is, I believe, June 1 thru Novermber 30. Years ago when I lived on St Croix, I remember it being until October 31 when the local churches would have ' thanksgiving ' services for getting thru the season unscathed as it was the year I lived there.

    It’s been a quiet and laidback day, with us barely leaving the villa. I already wrote of breakfast. After breakfast, we sat and read in the morning sun (the shaded terrace for me). With no ambition to do much of anything, we had a late lunch of takeout from the bakery across the street. Walking across the street was Excursion #1 for the day. We were back in the villa in 10 minutes, loaded down with Croissants Jambon Fromage, a so-called English Muffin breakfast sandwich, Pina Colada sorbet, and an amazing looking Chocolate Eclair. With lunch barely behind us, the skies opened. Rain started at about 1:30 and continued for almost 3 hours. The rain was so heavy that some inter-island flights were cancelled, and both JetBlue flights diverted to San Juan to wait it out. About...

    As far as the Bottom line; I agree that the size of the trucks have become a problem, as far as housing, should I be looking for a new villa?

    One Bucket activity which some here like to do is a shared charter on a catamaran and follow part of the race. TopLoc is the firm usually mentioned for such shared charters. https://www.toplocstbarth.com/EN/catamaran-ride-st-barts.php St Barth Sailor may offer a similar option. http://www.stbarthsailor.com/ St Barth Sailor also operates the Yellow Submarine excursion. http://www.stbarthsailor.com/yellow-submarine

    With it being your first time, I would take a drive to St. Jean and Gustavia from Le B when you get there so that driving at night will not be your first experience on the road there. The kids would enjoy the lower path walking to Columbier beach, it's only accessible by foot or boat. They may also enjoy walking around Toiny and Grand Fond beach, which is closer to your hotel. Not a safe swimming area, but lots of shells, coral and rocks on the beaches to look at. When we were there last week, the Christopher Hotel was showing movies by the pool on certain nights...it was advertised in Le News which is available all over the island. My kids started going as preteens and still love it at 16 and 18, happy to answer any questions if you have them.

    Most of the festivities for the Bucket occur on the quay, in Gustavia, each night of the 4 day regatta. There is usually a bar, and very often live music. Also, just walking the quay and viewing these magnificent, world class yacht's is a fantastic experience in itself. In case you haven't figured it out yet, the Bucket is our favorite time to be on Island. I'm sure you and your group will love it. BTW, advance dinner reservations are a must during this time. Phil

    Not Le Jardin. Le Repaire is correct. As I always say about Repaire, Check The Specials Board. These eggs, Œufs Croustillant, make the board from time to time. They were excellent, and were available for both lunch and dinner. There was a choice of one egg as an app, or two as a main.

    Thank you! Is there an area where the festivities usually are? Would we likely be near events if we book dinners in Gustavia and/or St. jean over that weekend? Thank you!

    Not Gloriette. This may indeed be a stumper. You would have to dine there regularly to run across it.
