None that I am aware of in that region, at least scheduled. There are no commercial cruise itineraries that would allow you travel between those points either. Probably your only possibility would be via freighter, however that is becomming a popular soft adventure option and the prices are not cheap. I'll give you a link to follow:

Good luck with it!

Try hitching a ride on a shorthanded sailboat. You will need to work your way to the NE Caribbean first. By late spring, boats will start working south before hurricane season starts. Venezuela is a popular "safe" zone (at least from Hurricanes).

Beggers can't be choosers, but if you offer to do some work you may increase your choices. Cleaning teak, scraping props/bottoms, washing dishes, changing diapers, whatever it takes...

Good Luck.

Here's the one information portal you'll need

You'll also need to be adept at sailing and or willing to learn and work hard.
