COVID-19 Policy:

If your charter or lessons are cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations or travel restrictions, we will waive the rescheduling fee and offer extra time to reschedule. We do not offer refunds, however, and recommend our guests purchase private travel insurance through their credit card company and/or third party.


All boats carry hull insurance. In the event of damage or loss of equipment, the charterer will be liable for an amount equal to 1% of the insured value of the boat.  If repairs/replacements are required, only the cost of  those repairs or replacements will be charged to the charterer’s account. All guests are encouraged to purchase private travel/trip insurance.

Best Weather in the Country.... But

While San Diego enjoys some of the fairest and most consistently good weather in the USA, we will on rare occasions have to postpone a charter due to inclement weather. This decision is made at the discretion of the captain and management of WCM. If a decision to postpone a charter is made, it is done so with the safety and comfort of of our clients in mind. If foul weather is forecast we urge you to contact us for an update.
