Crewed Catamaran Charter San Diego

Skippered or crewed charters mean that the yacht is rented with a professional crew consisting of at least a licensed captain who is responsible for the maneuvering of the yacht. In some cases the captain is aided by other crew members as well. Typically they operate solo. The fee for the captain is in addition to the cost of chartering the boat, and is by law paid separately to the captain. These are estimated rates and may vary per Captain. $50/hour and $400 for a full day is a good estimate. Call for overnight rates.

For a crewed catamaran charter in San Diego, NO SAILING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED. You will board one of our spacious catamarans and simply enjoy the ride as you explore San Diego Bay, the ocean outside the bay, or even head off to Mission Bay, Catalina or other points north.

This can be a Day Sail/Tour, or a more substantial trip – your call. Looking for San Diego Day Sail Ideas?

You determine where you want to go and at what pace. Your captain/crew is professional and will see to your needs.

NOTE: US Coast Guard regulations mandate that captains of charters of more than 6 persons are negotiated and paid directly by the charterer/client, in addition to the cost of the boat itself. WCM will provide a list of suitable captains for your charter experience.

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.
