We are supposed to come in this next weekend for a Navigare Charter. Any recent experiences? They seem to be dropping a lot of surprises on me lastinute and making me very suspicious of what is in store. Been bareboating the USVI and BVI since 1985. This will be #3 with Navigare.

Thanks in advance!

1. I was supposed to have a sleep aboard the first night and an early departure the next day. With one week's notice, I was told they are no longer do SABs and this was right after I was billed and paid for it.

2. Delays in getting follow up responses. I had to shift my trip due to Covid from last year obviously but getting confirmations have been difficult all along unless I follow up multiple times over weeks...

Zero knowledge of Navigare - don't even know where their base is - but there's been a Covid spike, and resulting lack of personnel. Maybe they lack the cleaning staff to turn around the boat for a sleepaboard, as well as to respond to inquiries.

We are having the same thing happen. They are still responsive on the phone but we are getting last minute changes.

The big one I have come here to ask about was they said we can no longer fish from the boat.

I'm not surprised. There is a process/cost to register and renew each vessel to allow fishing.
