FAQs

Private Yacht Charters and Weddings

Pricing

Yacht charters are priced by the hour, with a two-hour minimum. Rates vary based on your guest count and whether you cruise Friday-Saturday or Sunday-Thursday. Contact us  to request a quote for your event.

 

Will I be sharing the boat with any other groups and how many guests can I invite?

When you charter one of Watermark’s yachts, the vessel is yours for the duration of your event, and you will not be sharing the vessel with any other group! Passenger capacity varies depending on the vessel and the nature of the event that you are hosting. Within our fleet, we can accommodate as few as two guests and as many as 220.

 

What food and beverage services do you offer?

Watermark offers a variety of beverage packages, from full-run open bars to consumption-based offerings. Our bartenders are trained in safe service as well as customer service. Outside beverages are not permitted in accordance per our Maryland State Liquor License. For food, we offer a list of talented Preferred Caterers that are experienced working aboard our yachts. The team of caterers will work with you directly to design the perfect menu for your event. From drop-off service to full service, our caterers can provide breakfast, brunches, luncheons, appetizers, and full dinners.  For questions and recommendations, please contact one of our Event Planners.

 

Do you run cruises in bad weather?

We cruise rain or shine except in the most severe weather. Our vessels all have enclosed interior space as well as open outdoor space.

 

Are your yachts safe?

The safety of our guests, crew, and vessels is always a top concern. Our vessels are inspected yearly and are regulated by the U.S. Coast Guard. We have a superior safety record and take pride in our vessels, passenger safety, and our extensive security training. Our Captains and crew are trained in safety and security, so you and your guests can relax and enjoy the trip. Additionally, security service is onboard all social charters.

 

How early can guests start boarding?

Guest boarding begins 15 minutes prior to your cruise start time, though we suggest having your guests gather at the dock 30 minutes prior for prompt boarding and departure. We may be able to wait dockside for late guests, but it will not add to the length of your charter.

 

Are your vessels wheelchair accessible?

Most of our vessels are wheelchair and handicapped accessible. Feel free to discuss your needs with our Event Planners so we can create the best experience for all of your guests.

 

May guests smoke on the vessels?

No smoking or vaping is allowed anywhere aboard our vessels.
