Captained Charters with Newport Beach Sailing Charters

collage of sailing photos

A captained charter with Newport Beach Sailing Charters is a 3, 4 or 8 hour sail. Just sit back and enjoy the sights or sail the boat yourself, with a captain not far away to provide guidance – the choice is yours. Either way, you will sail aboard one of our luxurious sailboats, which all boast a spacious cockpit outfitted with cushions for you and your guests to spread out and relax.  Each boat has a comfortable cockpit that is semi covered to keep your guests warm and dry in winter, and shaded and cool in summer. All of the yachts have stereos with speakers wired for inside and outside use on the boat.

While sailing, you will most likely plan to enjoy refreshments and beverages on board. You can be assured that you will have the necessary amenities and space to serve your guests. All of our boats have a galley complete with refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, and sink, as well as pots, pans, silverware, and dishes.  The interior of the yacht is also outfitted with a salon dining table.

Last but not least, the “creature comforts” of a boat are what enhance an already terrific experience. All of our boats are outfitted with a private head (toilet) and vanity sink. Our heads are electric and filled with fresh water, which eliminates the need to pump the toilet and minimizes odors.

Note: You are welcome to bring food and beverages aboard the boat.  (The boat is not stocked with beverages/ice/snacks.)

The Newport Beach Sailing Charters DIFFERENCE

A captained charter with Newport Beach Sailing Charters is different from any other boat charter you may have previously experienced. This can be a truly INTERACTIVE experience, if that is what you wish! If you would enjoy taking the wheel and driving the yacht, you will get the chance to do so. If you would like to get your hands on the lines and trim the sails, you will! Of course, if you prefer to just sit back, sip champagne, and have the captain take care of everything, we can do that too. The choice is YOURS!

Rain Cancellation Policy: We will reschedule or refund 100% of your charter fee if at 8am on the day of your charter, the iPhone Weather app says there is a 40% or higher chance of rain during the specific hours of your charter.

Captained Charter Cancellation Policy: Daily Captained Charters may be cancelled up to 7 days in advance for a 100% credit which is applied toward a future charter, as long as you reschedule the charter within one year. Cancellations made in less than 7 days – but greater than 2 days – will result in a loss of 15% of the total charter fee and an 85% credit valid toward a future charter, as long as you reschedule the charter within a year. Cancellations less than 48 hours in advance of the charter will result in a loss of 75% of the total charter fee and a 25% refund.

Food and beverage: Since everyone has a different preference,  you are invited to bring what you like best. We only request that guests do not bring red wine onboard, as it can stain the decks.

Gratuity: Gratuity is not included in the price of the charter. It is typical in our industry to tip the captain 15% of the cost of the charter.
