DO YOU HAVE BAREBOAT CHARTERS?

We do not have any bareboat charters, as bareboat chartering needs a special permit in Mexico.

DO YOU HAVE MULTIPLE DAY CHARTERS?

For those wanting to make multiple day trips, spending the night on certain yachts can be arranged.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN MY CHARTER FEE?

The vessel, captain, first mate, fuel, water, soft drinks, beer, ice, in some cases (charters of 6 or more hours) snacks (and in some cases fishing gear, snorkeling gear).

Certain vessels include towels and aquatic toys. So don’t forget to ask if there are other things included in your charter.

WHAT´S NOT INCLUDED IN MY CHARTER FEE?

Round trip transportation from the vessel to the beaches, and from your hotel to Marina Vallarta are not included in the package. We can arrange transportation for you for a small fee

Tips are also not included.

CAN OUR CAPTAIN TAKE US ANYWHERE WE WANT?

Almost anywhere as long as it is inside the bay. But there are some places that are Protected Areas by the National Commission for Protected Areas. Some of our boats have special permits for those areas, but not all of them. Contact us so that we can discuss this with you.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE A FEW EXTRA HOURS FOR OUR CHARTER?

In almost all cases it is possible to take extra hours. There could be exceptions in cases that vessel is compromised with another reservation just after yours. Make sure to ask the captain as early as possible if additional time could be arranged. In cases where extra hours can be added to your trip, you will be informed of the additional cost.

ARE WE INSURED ON THIS TRIP?

Your charter fee includes personal and vessel insurance with the minimum amount of coverage that’s required by the Mexican nautical authorities. If you need a higher insurance coverage we recommend you contract it directly with your insurance company.

DO YOU HAVE A LOCAL PERMIT TO OPERATE THIS KIND OF SERVICE?

Yes. All our boats have the Mexican Nautical Tourism Permit.
