The fascinating Confluence Project records four visits to (0,0). Visit #1 was by a US Coast Guard vessel that happened to be sailing past, and they took a (bad) photo of the buoy too. Visit #2 is not listed. Mysterious... Visit #3 was by a group of artists (!), who sailed from Hamburg, Germany to Tema, Ghana on a cargo ship. There they chartered a boat ...

Besides marinas there are several websites/forums you can search: Sailnet Cruisers Forum There are also “professional” websites that list ads like: Crew Seekers Find a crew Some of the websites require that you pay a fee. Anyway, as I commented before you may be required to have skills. Nevertheless make sure that the crew (and the captain) are also ...

First the general route to get to Europe over South America with sails: You start at the East or North Coast, move over the West Indies, go north to the USA, move northeast with the Gulf Stream and if you get far enough to the north, you have wind from the west and you can cross the Atlantic. Now you are in Chile and this is really the absolutely worst ...

Very much depends on the cruise ship, and it's often based on their country of origin. Here are some examples: in the help of P&O cruises (a British-American cruise line) : Oceana and Britannia also have US 2 pin sockets in addition to UK 3 pin sockets The standard electrical supply in the United Kingdom is 50HZ (cycles) and 240V. The supply on board ...

The webpage maintained by OuterBanks.com appears to have a very thorough description: The Ocracoke / Hatteras Ferry departs from both the Hatteras and Ocracoke terminals daily, including all major holidays, from 5:00 a.m. until midnight. ... In the summer season, the ferry runs every 30 minutes from both sides during the prime ferry traffic hours, which ...

Well, there is no trans-Atlantic ferry service, direct or connecting so what you're asking is simply not possible. The closest you could get is shipping the car as cargo and booking yourselves on the same ship as passengers. For example: Transatlantic with the CMA CGM French Line Freighters

I have used both Ferries (and similar ones in Virginia) and as per the other answers it is first come first served basis. These things are treated like shuttle buses - you wait in line, drive on, enjoy the view and then drive off at the other end. And as per ID .. you'd have to be doing something really out of the ordinary to attract the attention of ...

A look at the site and schedules reveals that the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry is free and runs every half hour. That usually means the ferry is first come first served with no reservations. Your inability to make any kind of reservation on the route bears that out. Ferries of this kind are usually on routes where the ferry frequency is able to cope with ...

I can only agree with some of the others here. Sailing south of South America is a very demanding route. I've been in Antarctica with my own boat and are now heading back from Uruguay/Buenos Aires. I'm looking for crew and I get some proposals. Mostly from people with just that 'a bit romantic' touch: I have no experience and no money, but I work hard' ...

It will depend on the ship. Cunard seems to have one US + one UK plug officially, and if you search around you find some more (by unplugging TV etc.), but they have tons of British customers. Other cruise ships might have US + European.

I don't have much good news for you. According to Freighter Trips (and various other sites I could find): Many people who are taking a freighter voyage as part of a long term stay abroad, or a permanent relocation, ask about the possibility of taking their pet with them. For animal lovers, this would certainly be a dream solution to their ...

Commercial airliner will be the cheapest. Boat would be extremely expensive (since it's 6 nights or so across the Atlantic) plus another east coast to west coast flight. www.hipmunk.com is a good search sight. Over Christmas flights will be expensive since it's busy season. Starting to book now is a good idea. Cheapest that I found was about $1200 (Dec 23 ...

Depending on how isolated you are looking for, there are plenty of cottages for rent on islands in Ontario. Here is a search result for island cottages on one site. Costs are from a few hundred per day. Some of these are not very isolated - only a few hundred yards from other cottages across the water, and may have boaters coming close to the island. All of ...

I don't know of any regular scheduled shipping from the Canaries to the Caribbean. However I have a couple of suggestions for things to try out: Repositioning cruises. Sometimes cruise lines have to move a liner from the Mediterranean, and they offer travel on that cruise leg at a fairly cheap price. Some might stop at the Canaries. These only happen at ...

As your question is posed, it's almost impossible to answer: there are dozens of island nations in the Caribbean, along with another dozen countries that border on the Caribbean Sea. It would be better to decide first on your destination, one which would permit you to move/emigrate, and allows the import of pets (with or without quarantine). Global pet ...
