Members of our charter program sail Biscayne Bay in our Sonar™ and RS Venture boats. You are eligible to participate if you have proven, documented knowledge, or you have demonstrated your capabilities and successfully completed our Certification Course. The level of certification depends on your skills and abilities to control the boat in a variety of conditions. The limits for sailing are up to 10MPH, 15MPH, or 20MPH wind. We do not rent boats when wind is stronger than 20MPH, but will allow access to boats for those with the skill and experience to safely handle the conditions. Membership in Team Paradise is required.
Class schedules and pricing are subject to change without notice, and we require a minimum 24-hour notice for scheduling or cancelling classes and chartering boats. Boats may not always be available, but we make all efforts to accommodate your needs. Certifications for charters are issued on an individual basis, and we reserve all rights to refuse certification due to lack of skill and seamanship. $500 refundable damage deposits are required for all charters.
The refundable damage deposit will be returned once the vessel has been returned to port and properly inspected, no later than two business days after the rental is completed. Normal wear and tear is no reason to deduct from the Damage Deposit, but neglect or ignorance of seamanship may be. Boats should be returned in the same shape as when they left the dock. Any collision occurring while racing must result in a protest, filed by the skipper of the Team Paradise vessel to the Race Committee, within the protest time limit.
Waiver of Liability and Injury
Participation in Team Paradise events is at your own risk. Team Paradise will not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury or death sustained in conjunction with, prior to, during, or after the event.
