Is there a minimum charter period?

What does the charter rate include?

The charter rate includes the full charter of the yacht, the Captain and crew, and fuel use.

What happens if the weather is bad?

We cannot control the weather. Our Captain will decide if it is safe to take out Sovereign Lady. He may propose another beautiful destination that will ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience.

If the weather is unsuitable and if the wind is 25 knots or over, we would have to postpone the trip to a later date when it is safer to do so.

Will I get seasick?

Most of our charters operate in smooth and partially smooth waters. If we go offshore for whale watching (into the open ocean), there is a possibility of large waves.

The vessel is very seaworthy, and you will be safe. However, if you are concerned about getting seasick, we suggest buying some seasick tablets from the chemist. Please let our crew know if you are feeling unwell.

Is smoking allowed onboard?

When the vessel is anchored, and you are safe, smoking is only allowed on the back swimming platform.
