CUBA– Educational Yacht Charters from Florida or the Bahamas to Cuba
Cuba has long been a destination for travelers from Canada and Europe. Americans however, due to economic and diplomatic isolation, have not been able visitor Cuba (legally) since the early 60’s. In January, travel and trade bans were lifted allowing for the first time in decades, U.S. travelers to visit Cuba. US Airlines will be permitted to provide service to the country and travelers will be allowed to spend money and use credit cards there. US insurance companies will now provide coverage for travel and health insurance for visitors to the island nation.
Although Americans can now visit Cuba without first obtaining approval from the Government they still must fall into one of the 12 categories.
- Family visits
- Official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations
- Journalistic activity
- Professional research and professional meetings
- Educational activities
- Religious activities
- Public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions
- Support for the Cuban people
- Humanitarian projects
- Activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes
- Exportation, importation, or transmission of information or information materials
- Certain export transactions that may be considered for authorization under existing regulations and guidelines
The people-to- people Cuba travel initiative is quickly becoming the way for Americans to travel to Cuba. It falls into the cultural and educational categories. The program includes educational trips to museums and access to local artists. You will be assigned a local guide who will show you the real Cuba and take you out of the touristy traps and into the heart of the culture and community.
Yachts have always visited Cuba before, but now many more will be offering Cuba charters for Americans. At only 99 miles from Cuba, Key West makes for the perfect jumping off port for yachts. The SY ZEPHYRUS has completed all paperwork and now has the necessary documents to legally offer sailing charters to Cuba (Americans too) via their people-to-people educational exchange charters. They have created an itinerary to show guests the history and culture of Old Havana and the surrounding areas.
