Yacht Charter FAQ's

You can arrange for your adventure next week, next month, next year. Just know that yachts book up fast and so it’s not something to wait too late on. We advise booking your charter as soon as you know your dates for your special getaway.

Please contact us for availability. Provided there are dates free, we can accommodate your part on a luxury charter with as little as a week’s notice.

All the crews aboard your charter yacht are professionally trained and certificated to ensure that you have the ultimate experience with the utmost safety. They provide a high level of customized service and hospitality. The Captain consults with guests to further ensure a wonderful experience and is ultimately responsible for the safety of the vessel and those on board.

The Bahamas are blessed with beautiful weather year round. There are good times to be here and great times to be here. However, if there is a specific excursion you would like to experience, we can advise you if there’s a particular time of day that is best to see it—so that your itinerary can provide the perfect adventure. This is where our destination expertise proves its value.

Our destination experts will work together with you to plan your special charter. Our expertise with luxury excursions provides the detail and experience you want. We will ensure that the activities and sights you desire will be woven in. Together with the information you give us, our extensive knowledge of the area and luxury yachting will provide you a wonderful plan.

We take care of the details when it comes to planning your yachting experience. That way there’s no guesswork. You can just tell us the activities and destinations that interest you most, and we will prioritize them in an itinerary that meets your every desire. Your charter will of course include the finest food and beverages and personalized service both aboard the yacht and during any on-shore activities.

It all depends on which island destinations you select to visit on your charter. Rest assured at each cay we visit there is a plethora of activities and beautiful scenery to be enjoys. From beak walks to island hikes to feeding pigs or rock iguanas… Some harbors offer 5-star dining and drinks. You also have opportunities to meet locals and soak up the laidback island vibe of the Bahamas.

We invite our guests to offer input on preference for food and beverage as well as any dietary restrictions. This is all part of our planning process—taking in your tastes and wants so that we can create the ideal yachting experience for you and your party. Our charter chefs are highly trained and prepare the finest culinary delights for our guests.

Our yachts are equipped with a satellite phone for any urgent calls that may be required while we are out on the water. And there is also internet capability for when we are docked in a marina offering WiFi. We provide all the contact details for your charter yacht prior to setting off so that your friends and family know exactly how to contact you should they need to. Otherwise this is an opportunity to disconnect and free your mind to live in the moment and focus simply on the beauty that surrounds you. Yachting provides one of the greatest luxuries there is—tranquility.

Charter agreements vary, but we request your balance including associated costs (APA) by at least 30 days prior to the date of commencement.

APA, or Advance Provisioning Allowance, is the standard arrangement for paying your expenses during your yacht charter. The charter fee covers the hire of the yacht and crew. All other expenses are in addition. Every guest has different requests and so the costs will vary accordingly.

Pre-paying the APA is a simple, fuss-free way of creating a petty cash account for your charter to cover the operating expenses such as fuel consumed for your itinerary, food, wines, liquor, communications, port fees, transfers to and from the vessel, special requests, and incidentals on your behalf. We will keep track of which services are used, and any credit remaining at the end of your luxury charter will be reimbursed to you in full in cash. Likewise any overages are to be paid to the Captain in cash.

There are no mark ups on the APA and you can review the expenditure level at any time.

While gratuities are at your discretion, it is customary to tip the Captain and crew at the conclusion of a charter if you are pleased with their service and care. The common amount is 10 to 15% of the base charter fee. Exception attention to detail does often receive a tip of 20% or more. But again this is at your discretion and goes entirely to the Captain and the crew.
