Chartering the open seas with the option of a professional skipper is an excellent choice if it is your first charter or if you are not very confident with marine charts when sailing. The role of a skipper is to ensure the safety of the vessel and the crew as well as taking care that the yacht is seaworthy for departure. An important aspect of any skipper is that he is acting professional at all times with a pleasant attitude.
Guests may choose to request a skipper as a compliment to their charter knowing they can enjoy the area at best and relax on their holiday. It is also the best way to discover the secret spots around the islands as all of our skippers have extensive experience in each sailing area. The skipper acts as a guide to choose the best location at the time for all water activities, meals and overnight destinations.
The skipper will have his own personal cabin for overnight accommodation, please advise us of how many cabins you require for you and your onboard guests and we will find and recommend the perfect boat. You are in charge of providing food to the skipper, but not for preparing or cooking meals. A pre-provisioning service is available. Please let me know in advance.
The skipper will show you the best way to navigate each destination in perfect timing with the weather conditions. The skipper will be taking care of your safety during the charter ensuring appropriate navigation of the vessel. The skipper will be happy to travel ashore when needed and is responsible for transporting you and your guests by dinghy boat to the beach. The skippers have a long history of sailing experience and this option is open to all budgets; we recommend it as a must for our honeymoon guests!
