F.A.Q

Which is the Max Capacity?

  The US Coast Guard regulations require that all privately owned charter yachts in the United States are limited to a maximum of 13 Passengers (Charterer +12 Guests), plus crew. This regulation is named in the Passenger Vessel Safety Act of 1993: “No yacht for charter should accept more than 13 passengers onboard, no matter the size of the vessel or the age of the passenger.

General Rule of Thumb For Vessels:

19 – 36ft     6-10 Passengers

37 – 42ft     10-12 Passengers 

44ft+            13 Passengers

P.s: Children / Infants count the same as an Adult.

BAD WEATHER?

   Miami has an unpredictable tropical climate, meaning it is very hot with sudden sporadic Bursts of rain now and then, which rarely last more than 20-30min.

   Charters very rarely get canceled due to bad weather, only when it’s Deemed unsafe by the captain will a rescheduling option be provided.

   Owners are happy to work out a rescheduling if the weather seems aggressive or are given prior notice.

Rain doesn’t constitute a reason for cancellation due to Miami’s Tropical climate.

WHERE DO WE GO?

   Captains are there to make sure clients are happy and safe, they will present some of the most popular location options to go Anchor at in South Miami, such as Star Island, Monument Island, Nixon, Marine Stadium, etc.

   They can also offer a tour of the Famous Mansions by Star island / Palm Island or go cruising along the skyline and eventually anchor at one of the top spots for Fun, Sun, and Swimming. 

    If a vessel is chosen in North Miami (Haulover, Sunny Isles, Ft. Lauderdale)

 

    Then the cruising grounds will stay Local.

 

    Keep in mind the charter prices presented are for Idle speed cruising in the designated local areas of the vessel selected.
