    Question Visiting islands in the Eastern Caribbean by boat.

    Has anyone here recently (last 18 months) visited any islands in the Eastern Caribbean by boat/

    If so which island(s) did you visit and what were observations/experiences in clearing Immigration and Customs?
    I live and drink rum where other people vacation.

    St. Lucia and St. Vincent.
    Customs and Immigration was straighforward and pleasant in both cases,but seemed like a make work project considering all of the people involved.

    Anguilla, SXM,St Bart’s, Antigua, Guadeloupe,Dominica,Carriacou.
    Guadeloupe is easiest... two euros in and out with a quick visit to the t shirt shop.
    Antigua can be a pita... they have the “ec clear” which does not make anything “ec’er”.
    Anguilla clearance is pleasant and free.IF you own your boat and stay in Sandy Ground, otherwise it is very expensive.
    Dominica is trying very hard to encourage yachtsmen to visit by making clearing easier cheaper and pleasant. In and out one time, nice greeting , no pre computer bullchit.
    SXM is becoming more police state bullies on boats every time I go there.
    The cops in Montserrat came to check us out just for passing close by.
    I try and avoid the usvi, BVI,st Lucia, st Vincent .
