November 2010 - Paradise Connections Yacht Charters
(Newest posts at bottom of page)

November is the beginning of the Caribbean Yacht Charter season.  If you haven't booked your yacht for this season's sailing vacation, do so quickly while there is still a selection of good yachts with open dates.

We still have some excellent yachts open for Christmas & New Years!

Speaking of Christmas... Will you be naughty or nice?  Paradise Connections is giving away 2GB iPod Shuffles for new barge and yacht bookings.  See details below!

The Barging season is over for this year (with a few exceptions) but the barges' calendars are already filling up nicely for next season... Again, don't delay!

Don't feel like cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year and the first snowfall is getting you down?  Sounds like you need a quick getaway. Drop us a line and we'll set you up!
