San Diego Boat Tours – Corporate Policies
We do require a somewhere between a 25% – 50% charter deposit when you book the charter with the rest due at the time of the charter. For larger yachts the remainder may be due a few days before the charter. We accept checks, visa and master card. Your credit card serves as a damage deposit, so remember, you are responsible for the conduct of your guests.
By canceling 15 days before your scheduled charter you incur no penalty, except for a 10% administration fee. Canceling less than 15 days in advance will cause you to incur a penalty of 50% of the yacht charter rate. Canceling the day of the scheduled charter you will forfeit 100% of your charter fee.
Gratuities are appreciated, but we do not include them in your charter price for the smaller vessel. If you enjoy your charter please show the crew your appreciation.
We are located in America’s Cup Harbor and usually depart from there. There is plenty of free parking at this location.
We can also depart from other locations but most hotels charge a docking fee ($100-$200). We will also need to charge you a remote fee travel time of $100 – $200/hr depending on where we are required to pick you up.
Rain / Storm Policy
The yacht is enclosed, so you will have a great charter even in the event of not perfect conditions – in the case of rain. If raining however you may cancel. In the case of storm conditions it may not be appropriate to go on the water and we may have to cancel.
We are big dog people and love all pets. We do occasional have dogs on the boat but do not encourage it for two reasons. For one there is the bathroom issue. The second concern is that they could easily fall overboard.
