Charter Policies Captained Charters The average for Captain and crew is $100 per hour. We can arrange a Captain and crew for your sail if your party is a maximum of 6 persons. If your party is over 6 up to the max of 10 persons, we give you a list of choices of those qualified to Captain this boat for your sail. We can call to arrange a Captain for you or you can call from the list of captains yourself to find out their availability and rates.

If we contact them for you, their fee is added as a separate line item in your contract. The price shown above is without a captain/crew fee. We offer to pre-pay the Captain before your charter. These policies are required by the US Coast Guard for more than 6 persons. You can not extend the time of your charter without agreement of the captain and by the office. We sometimes do charter this vessel two times in one day. Still we have a post sail clean up team staged and need to be consulted to see if sailing time extension is possible.
