Before you board

If this is your first yacht rental in Catalina, then you may have questions that need to be answered before you board. Ask if pets are allowed on board Make sure that you’ve booked a pet-friendly yacht if you plan to bring a pet. There are plenty of yachts that will allow pets, but it’s best to ask either the broker or the captain before you come ready to hit the waves with a furry friend in tow. Follow the “barefoot” rule Many yachts have expensive teak decks that can easily be dented by a high heel or scuffed with a hard black-sole shoe. Get around this by taking off your shoes. Check if smoking is permitted It’s almost universal that smoking is prohibited inside the cabin, but smokers should check with the broker or the captain for on-deck smoking rules. If it’s permitted, then the most considerate spot to enjoy a cigar or cigarette is on the stern of the yacht.

While aboard

Enjoying yourself on a beautiful yacht is an easy task to accomplish. It’s your time to sit back, relax and leave the hard responsibilities to the crew. However, to make the most of your trip, please respect the crew. They go out of their way to make your voyage the best it can be.
