HIRING A CAPTAIN

Captained Boat Special

Worried about getting lost, or not finding the really cool places to go? Worried you might damage the rental boat by running aground or crashing into something? Hire an experienced and licensed local captain to join you on board to run the boat for you. He/she can show you the cool snorkel places and guide you exactly on where to go and how to be safe out on the water.
All of these captains are US Coast Guard licensed. Captains are private contractors and you need to pay them directly, in cash. If you have contracted a boat for a certain period of time (such as 4 hours) but decide to return early, YOU STILL PAY THE CAPTAIN THE FULL AMOUNT FOR THE CONTRACTED PERIOD.

IF YOU HIRE A CAPTAIN YOU ARE ABSOLVED OF YOUR LIABILITY ON DRIVER DAMAGE TO THE BOAT! (this excludes any damage your party might cause). No need to worry about crashing into other boats or damaging the propeller. Your captain is responsible for this.

$25 per hour PLUS GRATUITY (minimum charge: $100) Tipping Guidelines here >>>
6 or less people we have a ALL INCLUSIVE CAPTAIN SPECIAL!

HOW IT WORKS

18 foot pontoon rental

You make a reservation online, pay a non-refundable 30% deposit to confirm your reservation and VOILA! Instant reservation! If you have questions, give us a call. If you do not see a boat available online - don't call - it really IS NOT available. We promise we aren't hiding boats from you! Choose another day for your BEST DAY EVER!

You arrive 20-30 minutes before your departure time. Please be sure to have your contract electronically signed BEFORE arrival - it's in your email confirmation. We must see the driver's license of the responsible driver. If the responsible driver was born 1988 or after, they must also show their Boater Safety Card. You pay your balance due for the boat in cash or card - you can also pay your balance due before you arrive through your email confirmation. We go over the boat with the driver showing where everything is and how to operate it. We go over all the navigation and how to get to to all the really great places to see in our beautiful area. All passengers must stay with their vehicle until the check out is complete with the driver. The driver will then take you to the boat to load up.

If you're late arriving to the marina it is NOT added on to your time out on the water. If you are late returning the boat - there is a late fee. When you return the boat we check the gas level and you can pay your gas with cash or card. We also inspect the boat for damages and/or losses which must also be paid at the time you pay for your fuel.
