Extra items may come at an additional cost, but most of what is stocked comes at no additional price.

Q. What if I have to cancel my charter?
A. A refund of 100% is given if there is a cancellation due to weather being too harsh to go out. This is usually determined by the Captain. Any other request for refund must be given with at least 2-weeks’ notice.
Q. What is a Half Day Charter and a Full Day Charter?
A. Half Days are when the yacht is chartered for 4 hours and Full Days are 8 hours. We typically charge by the hour, and in the event that you want to extend your outing this shouldn’t be a problem but may come at a small additional cost.
Q. What about referrals?
