Thanks for considering a sail on Ventura. For your planning purposes, we have provided this charter cost calculator. This will give you a very close approximation of the cost of your sail -- within 10% most likely. Not included in the calculator is the optional cash gratuity for the servers and deck crew, which is customary but strictly your option.
A Ventura cruise is not a mass-market operation, as you have probably figured out. We are a very customized, personal business -- and like it that way. There are several options that you may wish to add to your sail -- additional entrees, a full bar, extra sailing time, etc. Therefore any pretentions to a precise on-line pricing, except for our open to the public sails, would be -- let's call it bilge water.
When it comes down to your charter price, we will work with you to get the best value for your goals. We encourage you to use this calculator and see if your price is within the ballpark of your budget. A firm price, guaranteed, with be sent to you after we discuss personally your menu, time of sail, and any other options. What's more fair than that?
All major credit cards are happily accepted!
WEATHER AND CANCELLATION POLICY:
Below are our policies for rain/bad weather, and cancellation of a sail. These are the general guidelines and exceptions are made whenever possible to best suit the client needs -- we want you to have a great sail and come back summer after summer, mon!
Thanks again and hope to see you aboard! --- Captain Pat
