Caribbean inter-island transportationI want to go Caribbean island hopping to pick up new countries and see new places. Looking for recommendations on economical ways inter-island travel. In other words, how could I jump between islands every couple of days without going broke with airfares? Suggestions on gettting between islands and a group of 3-4 locations to do it would be appreciated.

1read back into the board, this question gets asked all of the time and you will find a list of the limited ferry options
for the most part, the Caribbean will broke you with flights.... it's not a cheap travel destination
possible combinations -
St. Kitts & Nevis with St. Martin, Saba, Antigua or Statia
St. Vincent, Grenadines and Grenada
Trinidad, Tobago with Barbados or Grenada

2) Exumas, Bahamas
3) St. Martin, Anguilla, St. Barts, Saba(if you dive)
4) St. Vincent, Grenada, Grenadines
5) Caymans (If you dive and arent interested in diverse culture)

3We are doing a similar thing for 9 weeks flying into Barbados from the Galapagos Islands, then onto Dominic and then St Lucia by local flight then St Vincent, Union Island and Bequia by ferry.
You need to be within a range of islands if you don't want to spend major money on ferry fares, I was surprised at the costs when I checked.
We are using the slower ferries which I think are better for the views and are cheaper, I understand also that you can get rides in fishing boats and cargo ferries at a price but I didn't look into this.
