We are going to help you that everything goes perfectly and that you enjoy an unforgettable experience.
We also leave you these 10 tips for you to consider:
1.- Choose the type of boat.
There are several options. The prices and the way of navigation can be very different, depending on whether we choose a boat, a sailboat, a catamaran or a yacht.
2.- The weather.
You should also take into account the weather that it is supposed to do on the chosen dates. The company will give you all kinds of information about it.
3.- The number of people.
Each boat is approved for a certain number of people.
Likewise, according to Spanish legislation, for a boat to be considered for legal and recreational purposes, the maximum number of people who can go on board is 12 people, not including the professional crew.
4.- Plan the day.
Route: Plan the Navigation Route.
Restaurant: If you plan to book a restaurant, do it in time and you will make sure you do not waste time waiting and endless queues.
On board: Although all our ships have towels, ice and a pack of complimentary drinks, be sure to order the extras you need so that you don't miss anything.
Remember to notify at least 24 hours in advance the time of your departure.
This way they can organize themselves to be waiting for you and have the boat ready for departure.
Day Charter hours are 8 hours from the previously agreed time.
Also note that all charters must be at the base port before sunset.
6.- Do not leave for the last.
If we leave things to the last minute we will have to settle for the boats that no one has wanted, or choose a type of boat that was not the one we initially wanted.
7.- The Captain.
The personality and professionalism of the captain is very important, since the success of the experience will not depend solely on the type of ship, destination or weather.
Therefore, it is something to keep in mind when hiring a boat.
Logically, it will determine the type of boat and days of rental of the boat.
Keep in mind that the best boat is not the cheapest.
A "cheap" boat can be outdated and poorly maintained. In the long run it will be a source of problems.
Be careful with the extras, as they can make the final price more expensive.
Fuel is never included in the rental price.
10.- Contract and Insurance.
It is an obligation in every nautical charter to formulate a rental contract with its corresponding insurance.
To do this by law, you must provide your data and the names of all passengers to formulate the contract and thus legalize your coverage.
And finally, it is always important to ensure that the company that offers us the rental of a boat has the relevant experience, guarantees and permits to carry out this activity.
In this way, in the event of any eventuality, you will always have the correct advice for everything you need.
