3 hours private charter on 35′ catamaran sailboat out of san diego,CA. As per coast guard regulations, you are paying and hiring the captain separately. The captain’s rate is $40 per hour. When you pay under “book now” that is why we are therefore deducting $120 from the total advertised, so you have that to pay the captain for this three hour charter. You have to bring that with you and pay captain at the boat, or, earlier if captain bills you. If you book more than three hours, you must bring $40 more for each additional hour.
