The Bottom Line: What will it cost?
Our philosophy is very simple; our costs are as inclusive as we can sensibly make them. We figure most people would prefer to know ahead of time what the total vacation cost is; not have to worry about little additional surprises along the way!
On our Adventure Sailing trips, once you get on the boat, everything on board is covered. We provide provisions for breakfasts, lunches, soft drinks – even the first evening’s Happy Hour drinks are on us ! The only thing we don’t include is dinners – in Greece & Turkey, the local taverna experience ashore is much too much fun to miss. In Thailand, the anchorages can be more remote; so our amazing Thai chef will cook dinner for us on board about half the time – when there are little local places to eat ashore, we go join the local ambiance!
So unlike the more usual yacht charter deal – there’s no unexpected extras to catch you out halfway (“Oh, you didn’t realise how much this marina costs?” or “That’ll be another 300 euros for the fuel bill, thank you very much!” ).
With the more usual bareboat-plus-skipper arrangement, you’re up for everything else – fuel, water, mooring, insurance, local taxes, food, on board bar bills – even the skipper’s food and drink.
SeaScape’s philosophy is that nasty $$ surprises don’t do anything for a relaxing vacation – and we emphatically don’t work that way. We’d prefer you to eat, drink and be merry – without worrying how much extra it will cost!
