Catamaran charters come in many forms. They start as small as 40 foot bare boats where you do it all yourself and go up to cats well over 100 feet in length where crew members will pamper you in 5 star luxury, and everything in between. Anyone new to the idea of a charter vacation will be overwhelmed by the volume of information available on the web. The irony is that if you are in fact new to the idea, then you probably don’t know where to start or even what questions to ask. It takes the aid of someone who knows the ins and outs to wade through all that data. That’s where the charter broker that you choose can make or break your charter vacation experience.

About us at H2o Trips.

I personally ran a 10 passenger charter yacht in the British Virgin Islands for 20 years and did over 600 charters. This coupled with the fact that I have personally stepped  aboard each of the several hundred yachts that I represent  and inspected the vessel as well as  quizzed the crews makes my help to you unconditionally qualified to be up to date, informed and unbiased. Many in our industry simply rely on information that they have gotten from either the internet or from our other “trade” sources. Many have ties to particular boats so will push them even if they do not match your requirements well.  I am here for the express purpose of finding the correct match for you and your family’s needs. What I tell or show you is what I have recently seen or personally photographed myself. I do not rely upon information and pictures from 5 year old brochures.  Our service is completely free to you and there is absolutely no obligations to book through us. Please let me help make your vacation the vacation of a lifetime.

Lets be honest, it isn’t for everyone. I know that we have had dozens of guests that have done cruise ships before and say they will never again after having experienced the one on one attention that a crewed charter brings. Others have arrived on a 50 foot yacht and don’t know what to do with the 7 formal outfits with matching shoes that they brought along!  We can help with the decision making process. 

We know all about special dietary requirements and thing like passport or visa requirements.

Do you want to SCUBA dive, fish or water ski, we know which boat offers what. Our knowledge of the industry has helped many many people experience the romance and charm of a charter vacation without the headaches involved with sorting out the details themselves.  

We also know of any discounted deals that may be on the table at any particular time, as well as when are the good and not so good months to charter particular destinations.
