Are there any sail/ferry services that (in the case of sailing, don't require you to be a crew member) will take you to and from Cuba to the various islands and countries around Cuba.

A few of the countries I would like to visit while in Cuba are:

  • Jamaica
  • The Bahamas
  • Turks and Caicos

I'm not bothered about visitng all of them, one of them would be fine due to the amount of time i have for holiday and probably sail time. I'd be looking to do this on a budget of under $50 per person for a return trip.

From Wikitravel:

There are no regular ferries or boats to Cuba from foreign ports, although some cruise liners do visit. Yachters are expected to anchor at the public marinas. Most ports are closed and tourists are not permitted to walk around them. Private vessels may enter at Marina Hemingway in Havana or Marina Acua in Varadero. There are no visa requirements. Expect to hand out several $10 bills to facilitate your entry.
