Can we smoke on your boatst?
Yes, you can smoke on all of our charter boats on the rear dive platforms while the boat is at anchor. Smoking is not permitted within the vessels interior or back decks. Please ensure you use the butt bins provided.

Is there a certain type of footwear we should wear?
Casual soft shoes are best, but guests often come dressed to go out after the cruise so any kind of footwear is OK. On day trips most people will shed their shoes once they are on-board. High heels are fine but should be removed before going upstairs to the club deck and sunbeds on Nautica and Marine 1 & 2.

Can we have 1 or 2 extra passengers than the maximum passenger number?
Boats are licensed to carry a certain number of passengers and under no circumstances allowed to go over this maximum number. We can however add your waitresses, performers or DJ’s as staff providing sufficient crew capacity allows, so you generally won’t need to include them in the total passenger numbers.

How do I make a booking?
Contact us or send us a online quotation and specify that you want to book. We will chat with you to run through all of the details of your booking. To secure the reservation a $500 deposit if payable within 3 days of making your booking. Get your deposit in as quick as you can, all our boats are in very high demand over spring and summer especially, and we cannot hold dates after the 48hr deposit due period.

Are there any conditions to booking?
Yes, terms & conditions are in the information sheets sent to you after making an enquiry.

Is there a bond payable?
Yes - bucks and birthday parties, open ticketed events, and some other style of functions will attract a bond. The bond will be refunded after the vessel has been inspected, and we can take a hold over a credit card rather than you needing to organize a cash payment.
