- Full Time Skippers will be onboard with you for your entire vacation and take charge of the vessel and your safety so you can relax and enjoy your sailing holiday. Daily rate is $200.00.*
- Instructional Skippers will teach you and your crew to sail your yacht, however they are not able to officially certify you. This is the only difference between an ASA Instructor and an Instructional Skipper. Daily rate is $225.00.*
