Do I need a visa to rent a boat in the Caribbean?
All 13 independent Caribbean islands do not require a visa to rent a boat. Also, you don’t need it in Turks and Caicos, the British territory. A US visa is required in the United States territories. The autonomy of the Netherlands needs a Schengen visa. You can visit French domains with a Schengen visa appointed by the French Embassy. British lands: a visa to Montserrat can be applied on the Internet, Anguilla and the Cayman Islands accept the usual British visa, and the BVI require the special visa appointed by the British embassy. If you have a visa-free passport for the EU countries, the same rules apply for it in the Caribbean.
