Tips for chartering a boat in Ibiza
Chartering a boat involves several points to consider when you contract a boat for your holiday in Ibiza and Formentera.
Every summer, many people decide to charter boats in Ibiza and Formentera in order to enjoy their holidays at sea or to celebrate weddings, bachelor parties or anniversaries. This type of trip is an original and fun way to discover hidden corners, quiet coves, beaches and restaurants across the islands of Ibiza and Formentera.
Here are 5 tips for chartering a boat in Ibiza and Formentera:
1. Choosing the type of boat: it is important to choose between the types of boats available and what you want to do. These include yachts, motorboats, RIBs, catamarans, sailing boats and schooners. It all depends on whether you want go on day trips or to use the boat to sleep overnight like in an apartment.
2. Is a skipper necessary? This will depend on the type of boat. In the case of boats of up to 12 metres in length, having a PER (Pleasure Craft Skipper) licence will be enough. In addition to the licence, experience is of great importance, so it is advisable to have a professional skipper on board in order to enjoy your time without this responsibility. This is one of the most important points to consider when chartering a boat.
3. Payments and coverage: when chartering the boat, you must take into account payment of the refundable deposit, to be paid in cash or by credit card before boarding. The charter rate includes the price of standard equipment, taxes, insurance policy, a tender, etc.
4. What to bring on board: it's advisable not to carry excess baggage, as space is quite limited. Ideally, you should bring several towels, swimwear, light sleeping bags, deck shoes, comfortable breathable clothing and adequate sun protection. You could also include diving masks, fins and seasickness medication.
