What are the costs for hiring a skipper?

The costs of hiring a skipper are dependent on several factors such as the area, the size of the boat and the expertise of the skipper.

Usually, the prices range from anywhere between 90 to 150 euros (roughly US$ 100 to 175) per day.

Skipper’s and other crew services, such as a hostess or cook, are paid apart from the charter fee. This should be paid before the charter takes place.

Take into account that you should also pay for the food and drinks for the skipper or the other crew members. It’s also customary to extend a gratuity.
