There’s a new travel option for visitors eager to explore Cuba: Clearwater, Florida-based company The Moorings will begin offering crewed yacht charters around the emerging island in March 2017.
Based out of Marina Hemingway in Havana and Gaviota Marina in Varadero, the week-long all-inclusive sailings will offer groups of up to 10 people an educational and cultural experience aboard a five-cabin Moorings 5800 sailing catamaran staffed by a captain and chef.
During the day, guests can tour sights including Hemingway House, Tobacco Farm Benito, the Hotel Nacional and Revolution Square accompanied by a dedicated local tour guide and driver. In the evenings, they can choose to dine onshore or privately on board (all meals are included). Tours will confirm with current U.S. travel rules.
“The combination of daytime and sunset sailing paired with a variety of expert-chosen onshore activities creates an incredibly unique cultural experience, delivering the ultimate all-inclusive Cuba vacation,” said Josie Tucci, General Manager of The Moorings.
