In order to assist you in planning your charter adventure with us, the following information will be helpful in answering the most common questions.

Flexible Policies

We have modified our policies for new bookings in the 2020 season to help our guests feel confident in their charter options, even in these uncertain times. Please contact us at for more details.

Cleaning & Disinfection

Our talented crew are using updated sanitizing protocols to ensure each yacht is as clean as possible for your trip. In addition to deep cleaning every vessel, we have modified our check-in and turn-around procedures to adhere to social distancing measures.
