Who can rent a boat?
The minimum age to rent a boat is 18. Otherwise, anyone can rent a boat. You may rent with or without a captain, if you rent without a captain, you must be in possession of an international sailing licence.

On the spot
Depending on the boat you choose and the type of rental, you can also choose to include a captain. If so, you will meet your captain on the boat. Together, you will discuss the navigation schedule and the various possibilities. During the trip, you will always have to pay the cost of gas (unless indicated as included) and port fees. The rental price does not include meals nor drinks, so plan a budget for this. At the end of the stay, it is customary to tip the captain. Several extras are available, such as towels and bed sheets and provided for an additional fee when making your booking. Some extras are mandatory, such as a cleaning fee and they could be payable at the time of booking or on site when you arrive on the boat.
