Notes:* Get an idea on air fares by clicking here.. Bold type=Requires Overnight Passage. Arrival dates are mostly on Mondays but this is fairly flexible. Although two weeks are allowed for many passages that may only take 2-3 days, the extra time will be spent on either the port of origin or the port of destination. To avoid passages during periods of uncomfortable sailing conditions, we like to "wait for weather." If a weather window opens up soon after your arrival, we will leave then and you won't get much time to explore the port from which the passage originates but will have more time on the destinatin island. If, on the other hand, winds are too strong when you arrive, we will have ample time to wait it out in which case, we will spend more time exploring the point of origin. We will generally not need to be in port on Sundays, as in the past to allow Mary and interested parties to attend church services. Mary will not be joining us at all this winter so you better know how to cook (because Lee Doesn't)!.
