Can we extend our charter time during the charter?
Yes, you may extend your charter time, but this is subject to availability. The charter will be extended based on the decision of the captain on board and payment will be processed post charter by authorised bond or credit card.
How do I secure my booking?
A minimum of 50% deposit is required to confirm your charter booking, with the balance payable 14 days prior to the commencement of the charter. Should you book your charter within 14 days prior to the date of charter, full payment will be required to confirm your charter booking. Upon payment of your deposit, a Skippered Charter Contract will be emailed to you, confirming details relevant to your charter, which must be signed and returned.
Is there any paperwork to complete before we go on our charter?
Yes, we require your signed contract and authorised bond form prior to your charter commencing.
If I cancel the charter, can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds should you wish to cancel your charter. If boating conditions are unsafe, as determined by the management, we will offer a six month voucher to reschedule your charter based on availability.
Preparations and Arrival
It is suggested that you bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, swimmers and a seasonal jacket to the charter as weather conditions can vary on the water.
Does our party need to get there before the set time of the charter?
All parties should arrive at the designated charter pick up point at least 15 minutes prior to your charter time to allow loading of passengers, and gear and to enable enough time for the skipper's safety briefing.
Service of Alcohol
Under the NSW Responsible Service of Alcohol Code we reserve the right to refuse alcohol to anyone deemed to be intoxicated. In the case of BYO charters we reserve the right to limit their consumption and/or to have them removed from the vessel.
If we find that charterers are consuming drugs on board our vessels they will be removed from the vessel immediately at their expense and/or and the police will be called.
