Default Selecting a charter company

I am an experienced sailor and I'm thinking of using a charter company for 10 days in the Caribbean in March of next year. I have narrowed it down to either Sunsail or The Moorings. I'm having a little trouble justifying the higher cost of the Moorings. If anyone out their has had experience with either of these companies I would appreciate your insight.

Thanks

i went with NorthSouth. older boats, but if you can deal with that, you can save a bunch of money.

I spent some time at a harbour in Australia that has a large charter fleet. It is rare that all of the boats were always chartered even in peak season. If you are willing to take the risk, arriving at the port and hiring a boat on standby you should be able to strike a bargain much cheaper than the advertised prices.

Best of luck!
