Frequently Asked Questions

In day charters, to fully enjoy your trip we can provid catering onboard.
You may also bring your own snack.

Drinks like soft drinks, beer and white wine are included.

Bring casual and comfortable clothing, suitable for nautical activities. We recommend you to bring a windbraker.

We recommend the use of white flat sole shoes, with slip-resistant properties (saiing shoes or similar).

We advise a good solar protector, sunglasses and a hat. A camera is an extremely good idea.

Safety is first, please follow the instructions and recommendations of your skipper, especially those relating to safety issues.

This is an activity subject to weather conditions. Trips may be amended due to weather conditions and the decision is solely to the skipper.

The schedules of departures and arrivals, duration and itineraries of the activities are subject to change without prior notice due to security determined by weather conditions, winds, tides and/or any other circumstances beyond the control of our company.

Bookings, made by telephone will be held without a deposit for a maximum of 3 days. Within these 3 days SWC needs to have received a deposit of 25% of the total cost.

The booking will be final as soon as the first payment is received, either by credit card details, by bank transfer, by PayPal or by cash payment at the SWC – office. The deposit is a non-refundable payment.  The balance of the fees needs to be paid 4 weeks before the charter starts.

Cancellation by the client prior to the final balance being due will result in not refunding the deposit. Cancellations by the client within 4 weeks before the date of the charter mean that the client is liable to pay the outstanding balance. It is therefore strongly recommended that you take out travel insurance. If possible SWC will try to transfer the reservation to an acceptable alternative date.

If cancellation has to be done by SWC because of circumstances beyond its control, including sickness, accidents, travel delays, weather, strikes, war or civil disturbance, then alternative dates will be offered or a full refund of the charter fees already paid will be made. No payment will be made for incidental costs such as flights etc.

In case the yacht is unable to return to port of any other final destination, on time due to bad weather, engine break down or any other circumstances, clients may elect to stay with the yacht at no extra charge or make their own arrangements to return at their own expense.

For bareboat charters (charters without a skipper) a contract must be filled between the skipper and our company.

A security deposit will be asked (autorization of credit in our ATM machine) on the amount of 1500€, cancelled in the end of the charters in case of no damage on the boat.
Prices include VAT and insurance. In day charters prices include also drinks and fuel.

The yacht, provided by SWC is fully insured against accidents, third party liability and personal injury due to negligence by SWC. No liability is accepted by SWC for personal accidents or loss or damage to the property of the client.

This boat is equipped with all the safety gear requested by the portuguese authorities for class 3, coastal navigation (up to no more then 60 miles from a safe heaven and 25 miles from shore).

This vessel cumply with all the legal requirements to operate as a commercial touristic boat.

In the interests of comfort and safety, smoking is not permitted below deck.
The client will not bring any illegal drug or any contraband.

If you have any complaints you should raise them at the very first opportunity with your skipper or the office staff. If you are not satisfied with the action taken you should then immediately contact the management of SWC.

Fantastic sunset sail

A fantastic way to spend the evening sailing along the coast with friends / family enjoying a glass of wine and entertaining chat with the team from Southwest Charters … this was our first sunset sail but have also enjoyed a couple of afternoon sails.
