For what you get, the Gay Armada is an AMAZING deal.
Our volunteer-run structure keeps costs and prices down.
That said, it's a week on big yachts in the Caribbean, after all.
It's flexible: You can do it more cheaply, or you can make it rain.
The Armada is a great value, but we want to be open about costs.

What is the
Total Cost of the trip?
Cost Ranges Vary by Sailor.
You can make the trip more affordable if you want.
You have great control of your overall trip cost
If you want it to be more affordable, you can pull "levers" to make it cheaper
If you want to spend more, there are plenty of upgrades and options
Key drivers of cost are:
-- Yacht package: The cheapest rates come from full yacht groups
-- Airfare & Hotel: Cheaper airfare, and using points to travel will impact your total
One area NOT to cheap out on in travel insurance: Make sure you have a "cancel anytime" plan,
as the Armada is non-refundable after our 24 Hour No Hassle Refund policy expires
Example of Cost Ranges to be Expected
