Renting a sailboat or a motor boat with a captain is a great solution if it is your first time renting, if you wish to rent a boat larger than than what are used to sailing, or simply if you wish to maximize your rest and relaxation.
Take the helm, your skipper is there to help you.
Discover the hidden treasures of your destination with your captain.
Venture out with peace of mind. Your captain is a qualified and experienced professional.
Your captain must have his own cabin during his stay aboard your boat. Check out the features of your boat on our TripNsea website to make sure there is enough room for you and your crew, as well as for the captain you would like to have on board.
You are required to provide meals for the captain you have chosen to hire. Remember to add an extra adult when making your online reservation if you choose to provide your food through the nautical concierge of your port
We consider your privacy with the utmost importance. Captains have access only to their own cabins and to the common areas of the boat.
What are the skipper's responsibilities?
Your captain can take you almost anywhere within the limits of your cruise basin. Simply tell him where you would like to go and relax. Aside from the actual operation of your boat, your captain will take care of everything concerning navigation, weather, and the safety of the crew during the trip.
Operating the boat's dinghy
When you need to go ashore, your captain can operate your boat’s dinghy in order to ensure a safe (and dry) passage shore.
Safety and Maintenance
For safety reasons, the captain must ensure that the operation on deck is in good condition at all times. This includes checking that the ropes are properly coiled and do not present any danger, and that all unused equipment is stored. The captain will also be responsible for filling fuel and water, berthing, and anchoring, the cost of which remains the renter’s responsibility.
Skippers do not cook for guests, clean the boat, provide childcare, teach clients to sail, nor perform any task outside the proper operation of the boat.
Your captain can be as discreet as possible or a full member of your crew. As you board, be sure to tell your captain if you prefer to maintain your privacy as much as possible during your trip.
For meals: If you wish, you may invite your captain to dine out with you. If not, inform him/her of what is available to eat onboard.
Your captain knows the region you have chosen well! He/she can give you all everything you need to know discover its hidden treasures!
Our captains are all warm and welcoming professionals. Many customers have made friends with their captain and requested him/her again for a future rental!
