General FAQ

What if I get seasick?

We understand not everyone has their sea-legs so if anyone has a tendency to get motion sick or seasick, or if you aren’t sure, we recommend planning ahead and choose a remedy you’re comfortable with ahead of time. A quick google search will help you understand the options; pills, patches, homeopathic, etc.

What Should I Wear For My Charter?

Comfortable clothes and layers! The temperature varies a lot even within a couple of hours on the water. Make sure to bring layers so you stay comfortable the entire trip.Some boats require shoes be removed prior to boarding while others ask you to wear white soled shoes. Please note that heels are never allowed no matter how much they go with the purse.

Can I Bring My Own Food and Drinks?

Absolutely! Feel free to bring food and your favorite drinks to enjoy while you’re out.

What Happens In Bad Weather?

Your captain has full authority over the route and destination based on the conditions. Weather and sea conditions may make it not possible to stick to the planned itinerary.  If the weather or sea conditions are extreme, the captain will decide if it is unsafe to proceed and we will reschedule for another available day.

Do I Need To Wear A Life Jacket?

o   Over 13-years Old: Life jackets are not required for guests older than 13-years. However, they are available for all guests and can be worn as an added safety precaution if you feel more comfortable… plus orange is stylish!

o   Under 13-years Old: Under California law, every child under 13 years of age on a moving recreational vessel of any length must wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket in serviceable condition and of a type and size appropriate for the conditions and the activity. The law does not apply to children under 13 years of age who are:

  • On a sailboat and are restrained by a harness tethered to the sailboat;

FLEET FAQ

How Many Guests Are Allowed On The Yacht?

Outsiders – 12 guests; Calico – 6 guests; Last Light – 12 guests

Are More Guests Allowed For An Added Fee?

The maximum occupancies are based on US Coast Guard and local licensing restrictions. So, unfortunately, the maximum occupancy listed for each yacht is final. However, you can always go big and charter multiple yachts at the same time to accommodate a larger group.

Are Kids Allowed Onboard?

We grew up on the water and can’t think of a better way for kids to enjoy the outdoors. We welcome adults, adults that act like kids, actual kids, toddlers, babies, buns-in-the-oven… if you’re comfortable bringing them, we’re comfortable having them. If you’re worried, give us a call and we can talk through it.

Are Your Yachts Pet Friendly?

We LOVE our animals and HATE the idea of an experience like this without them. Not everyone feels like we do though so, out of respect for all guests, we ask that you leave your pets at home (ESAs included).

Is Smoking Allowed Onboard?

o   Tobacco: Smoking/vaping tobacco/nicotine products is allowed in the open-air cockpit areas (back of the boat) only. Hookahs are not allowed.

o   Marijuana: Charters are regulated by the USCG and are subject to federal laws so these products are still considered illegal and cannot be brought onboard under any circumstance
