Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for some of the more frequent questions asked by our clientele, if you have any questions please feel free to give us a call or drop us a message.


Do I need any previous boating experience?

Not at all, for a large percentage of our guests Explorer is their first introduction into boating.

Where do Marmoris charters disembark from?

Our home port is Chichester marina; however, we do re-locate to other Solent based marinas including Gunwharf (Portsmouth) the Hamble and Lymington. Charges apply     

What if the weather is bad?

Whilst it is of course nice to have sunshine, blue skies and a light breeze, the traditional British weather with wind and rain can make for just as good a day out on the waves. Some clients have commented its theses days they have enjoyed the most! We will make a call on the weather 24hours before departure.

Will I get wet or cold?

Our aim is for you and your guests to have a fun, exciting day out. Your safety and comfort are our priority, we will always make sure you are warm and if the rain comes, we will button things up quickly. That’s not to say we won’t experience sea spray during the trip!  

What should I wear?

Flat shoes are a must! We suggest you wear layers so you can add or remove to keep you comfortable. We have plenty of storage so bring spares, swimmers ect.. 

Will my charter be cancelled due to bad weather?

Thanks to the fantastic protection the Isle of White offers the Solent, it’s unlikely we will need to cancel your charter. However, if we judge the conditions to be too windy and would detract from the day’s enjoyment, we will re-schedule to a mutually suitable day.

What party sizes do you cater for?

Whether it’s a romantic trip for two, a surprise engagement or large party of up to 20 we can accommodate you all.

Up to 10 guests and two crew per vessel and multiple yachts can be made available.

Can we consume our OWN alcohol onboard?

No unfortunately we do not allow guests to bring their own alcohol. As a licenced vessel it’s imperative we have control of consumption to keep our passengers, crew and vessel safe.

Can we purchase alcohol onboard?

Yes, we do serve alcohol onboard. We will provide guests with an arrival drink and unlimited soft drinks and hot drinks during the day (drinks packages available on request) please be aware that due to the environment we operate in, we reserve the right to withhold alcohol from guests if we feel their consumption may put them, fellow guests or crew at risk.  (we are relaxed and not overzealous, we will only intervein where needed)

Are your skippers at Marmoris Charter all qualified?

Any skippers working for or employed by Marmoris charter days will be, commercially endorsed, hold all relevant qualifications, have local knowledge and many years of experience.

You will be in safe hands with any charter booked at Marmoris Charter.
