No matter what your choice of provisioning, a highlight of any charter can be sampling the local fare. This means dining and shopping ashore.

“I would suggest once you have an itinerary in mind,” suggests Dream Yacht’s Allison, “discuss it with the base staff to get ideas for dining, and local markets to visit.”
