Bareboat Charter Sea of Cortez

For bareboat yacht charters from Puerto Escondido/Loreto, you simply charter (rent) the yacht and you skipper the boat. (Previous sailing experience is required. If you need to develop those skills, see our Sailing Lessons section.)

West Coast Multihulls Charters has a limited number of catamarans available for bareboat charter from our Sea of Cortez location. To charter one of our multihulls please contact us at 619.365.4326 or visit our fill out the information below to get started.

Listed below are a few requirements for a bareboat charter in Sea of Cortez:

We accept ASA 114 Certifications. Note that charterers holding ASA 114 Certification, but lacking prior bareboat catamaran charter experience will be required to hire one of our licensed captains for a supplemental training at the beginning of their first bareboat charter with WCM. This is a $150 cost paid directly to the captain.

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

Discounts and club rates do not apply on holidays. We require a 2-day minimum for holidays and extended weekends, including but not limited to: Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.

Sorry, NO PETS.
