There are 7 berth on Anaconda, but is is most comfortable with 4-5 people on board.
It is not a Charter Boat, so you will have to join the team onboard and work a little every day. While we are sailing, everybody will be on a 2-3 hours watch, which runs 24/7.
The boat is sailing by the wind and wind vane or autopilot, so You just have to keep a proper outlook and report upcoming things to the skipper.
Cooking and cleaning is on shift, but there is lots of time to read, swim and enjoy. In ports or by anchor, we sometimes have to keep a watch on board for security. Sometimes, there are more cleaning and small repairs to be done. Shopping for grocery, diesel and water, we do together, but we will explore the new place, dive and travel around, as we planed to do this way.
What does it cost?
You will be charged 40 USD a day for the berth with a minimum of 30 days aboard. That money is used to maintain the boat.
On top of that, we share all the cost on board. It will be Grocery, like food and drink etc. Diesel, oil, harbor- entrance-, visa- and visitor-fees.
It is normally about 400 to 600 USD a month, but it depends of how much we use the engine, dive expenses including fees for diving within parks and
wildlife reserves, and where we are. It can be less or more. It will be paid on board to "Running boat cost" account. The 40 dollars cost will have
to be paid up front for each month you have reserved to be aboard. If you would like to tour and dive with Anaconda for less than 1 month the cost is
500 USD per week, all inclusive with the exception of diving/park fee expense for diving and liquor. Included are all food, soft drinks, fuel, filling
dive tanks, etc. and unlimited non-guided dives per day.
What is the demand for You?
You don't have to have any sailing experience or skills. You will learn underway. You just have to be yourself and be able to learn. Also, you have to be able to live together with other people in small areas, like being positive, patient and tolerant. Mostly, everybody speak English.
