Local Leisure Charters
1. Are food and drinks included?
No, food and drinks are not included in our charter rates, unless otherwise stated. But we do have a 168-can ice cooler, a refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave if you want to prepare food on board or bring a chef along!
Alternatively, you may want to check out our menus available as an add-on option!
2. Are there any corkage FEES for bringing our own food and drinks?
Of course not! We encourage all our guests to bring their own favourite food and drinks, so we do not charge any fees for that.
3. Can I bring my pets on board?
We're sorry, but no. Pets are not allowed on board.
4. ARE your yachtS wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately, we regret that our yachts are not wheelchair accessible.
5. Can I smoke on board?
For safety reasons, smoking is not allowed on board a charter yacht. However, we understand a typical 4-hour charter is a really long time, and if you really need a smoke during the charter, please do so only at the designated area at the stern, and dispose of your cigarette butts responsibly.
6. Can I play my own music on board?
Yes, of course! We have portable Bluetooth speakers. So, go ahead, pair your smartphones or iPads!
7. Can I shower on board?
Yes, we do provide a cabin toilet with shower facilities so you may wash up after splashing in the sea! Our maximum water storage capacity is 600 litres though, so we do seek your cooperation in saving water while on board. Keep your showers short and quick, please!
8. What if it rains?
In the event of rain or inclement weather conditions, it will be at our captain's discretion whether to continue with the charter. Should it be unsafe to sail, the charter may be postponed, subject to availability. However, no refund will be provided.
9. I have been to Lazarus Beach a few times before, can I go somewhere else this time?
Sure! Please feel free to let us know where you'd like to venture to, and we'll gladly take you there (as long as time and regulations permit).
10. Do I need to tip the crew?
If you feel that our team has exceeded your expectations of excellent service for you and all your guests, a gratuity will always be most appreciated! Our crew work very hard under rain or shine to ensure a safe, smooth and memorable experience for all guests on board, so any token of appreciation will go a long way in affirming our efforts and encouraging us to do even better.
