Here Are Some of Our Most-Asked Questions About Charters:
How many days should we spend in St. Lucia before leaving on a charter?
If your charter is going out of St. Lucia, we suggest that you spend at least 2 days on island. This will give you time to acclimatize yourself to your surroundings and visit our beautiful island. It also gives us the chance to clear customs before your departure.
What time can we board the yacht?
At Oasis Marigot, we like to fill your days with activities and most of our charters and day sails leave at 8:30 a.m. unless advised otherwise.
Can you pre-stock the yacht for us?
Yes, we can just submit this request for more details.
If we want to stock the yacht ourselves where should we do our provisions?
We recommend shopping in Cul de Sac at Massy, they have a good selection and you will be able to find everything you need. There is a small grocery store in Marigot Bay where you can get the essentials.
Are we responsible for the crew’s food?
Guests are responsible for provisioning the boat for themselves and crew in regards to food and drink. (This excludes our all-inclusive charter option).
Is there a cook available?
You can get the services of a cook at $139 per day, plus the cost of food.
Is the crew in charge of cleaning the cabins/yacht?
No the crew is responsible to the safety of all passengers and sailing portion of the trip. Guests are responsible for cleaning after themselves.
What do you provide in terms of linens and cleaning products?
The yacht comes with linens, bath towels, beach towels, toilet paper and soap.
What is typically included in a sailing charter?
- Private yacht exclusively for your party
- Professional crew and yacht insurance
- Customs clearance taxes (If you visit Mustique, mooring fee will apply)
- Ice, water, fuel, linens
- Snorkeling gear, fishing gear & dinghy with outboard motor
Is there wi-fi on board?
Is there a blender or hair dryer on board?
No as these appliances take too much power.
Is there A/C available on board?
No, except for the all inclusive sailing charter.
What type of clothing should we pack?
The key is to keep it simple. You’ll spend your days in bathing suits and shorts, though for evenings ashore, slacks or a sundress are appropriate. Rubber soled shoes (as opposed to hard soles) are a must onboard, so wear boat shoes or tennis shoes. Above all, protection from the sun is vital. And, don’t forget to pack using collapsible duffles when cruising, suitcases are not easy to stow onboard.
Should we tip our crew?
As always, the quality of service should determine how you tip. We suggest a tip of around 10-15% as a good guideline.
