What Documents You Need for Sailing in the Caribbean
For your sailing trip in the Caribbean, you will need a boarding pass and a valid passport. Our advice is to take a copy of your passport and keep it in a separate place in case the original is lost. If you have chosen the bareboat charter and will navigate the yacht yourself, you will need a valid skipper license. Take the rent contract with you, as well. Another piece of advice is to keep all the documents in sealed plastic bags for protection from water and other damage. Check in with your agency before sailing in the Caribbean for advice on the required documents. The Caribbean are specific in that there are many small countries, each under its own jurisdiction and with their own rules, so check beforehand.
