Charter Rates & Booking
You may board at 6pm on the evening before the start day of your charter. Let us know and we will get you the key and parking pass to let yourselves aboard. Briefings are held at 8am on the start date of your charter, if necessary.
Booking and Cancellation Policy
A down payment of 50% of the total Charter price is required for any booking. The balance is due upon arrival. A cancellation fee of 20% of the total charter price is payable for any cancellation more than 2 weeks prior to your start date, with the full deposit being forfeited within 2 weeks of your start date. Payment can be made by credit card (visa or m/c) or cheque.
Fueling, Pump Out and Cleaning
Please top up the fuel and pump out the boat upon your return to the Harbour. A seasonal pump out pass is provided, however you are responsible to pay for your own fuel. In addition we ask that you clean all dishes, pots and pans, cutlery and the BBQ before returning the boat. We will clean the interior and the deck.
Bareboat Sailing Qualifications: We look for experienced sailors that have either owned or chartered a keelboat in the past, have knowledge of chart reading, rules on the water, aids to navigation, VHF Marine Radio operation.
All boaters from Canada are now required to carry a Pleasure Craft Operators Card, so please ensure you have one and bring it along on your charter. Non-residents may demonstrate proof of competency by providing proof of competency from their own country or by completing a Rental Boat Safety Check List. This checklist will be provided by Ahoy Rentals and will be reviewed with you when we do the check out of the boat at the start of your charter.
Once you have completed the “Sailing Resume” and we have determined that you have sufficient experience, we will confirm availability.
