Beautiful trip and crab island experience. We saw a dolphin and got to go to a private beach . Our captain Lance was so knowledgeable and offered us different experiences. We only wish we had made it a full day ! Definitely would do it again .
Captain Skyler made our experience very memorable for my family. Highly recommend that you ask for him. Very friendly and experience.

U.S.C.G. Boating Laws In accordance with US Coast Guard regulations, bareboat charters CANNOT include the captain’s rate, gratuity, or fuel cost in the charter payment. The captain must be paid by the charterer (you) directly. You will pay the captain $50/hr + $50 for fuel directly via e-payment or cash prior to departure. What is a Bareboat Charter? A Bareboat or demise charter requires a written agreement between the owner of a vessel and a charterer where the charterer has use of the vessel for a defined period of time and is considered the de facto owner. A bareboat charterer may take on legal obligations to the owner of the vessel, the crew, the passengers carried, and others. Elements of a valid Bareboat Charter: The charterer must have the option of selecting and paying the crew, although the owner may require general levels of proficiency for the crew that is retained based on federal statutes. The master/crew are paid by the charterer All food, fuel, and stores are provided by the charterer Insurance is obtained by the charterer The charterer is responsible for the safe navigation of the vessel The charterer may discharge, for cause, the master or any crew member without referral to the owner The vessel is surveyed upon its delivery and return Any provision that tends to show retention of possession or control of the vessel by the owner, or the owner’s exclusive operator, would be a contradiction that a valid and legal bareboat charter exists. Common Bareboat Charter Vessel Errors: A chartered vessel may NOT carry more than 12 passengers without a Certificate of Inspection (COI) A chartered vessel may NOT carry more than 12 passengers while moored. A chartered vessel is considered to be carrying “passengers” whether moored or underway. This includes a boat bed and breakfast The owner of the vessel may NOT be the vessel master or part of the crew. The vessel owner is NOT allowed on board during a bareboat charter A bareboat charter contract may not provide or dictate a crew. The charterer must be able to select a crew and have the ability to discharge the crew The charterer is not considered a passenger, and there can only be one charterer, even though the vessel may be chartered by several individuals. In this case, one person would be considered the charterer and the rest would be counted as passengers. Both U.S. flag and foreign vessels may be chartered, however, foreign-flagged vessels cannot carry passengers for hire between U.S. ports and must be chartered by and/or operate as a recreational vessel. Foreign-built vessels owned by U.S. citizens must meet coastwise trade rules before carrying passengers for hire. Using a vessel as a boat bed and breakfast in which the owner or operator receives consideration for people to remain overnight on the vessel is a commercial operation, is still limited to 12 passengers, and requires a written contract (bareboat contract) if the vessel is foreign-built and does not carry a MARAD small passenger vessel waiver.
