How to pay

There are three ways to create a booking through our website:

Instant Book

Some boats are able to be booked instantly (meaning they have the “Instant Book” feature turned on). To pay for an instant booking, navigate to the boat listing page of your choice, and click on the “Instant Book” button. From there, you will be prompted to enter your trip and payment information. After you click “Instant Book,” your payment will be processed and the booking will be automatically approved.

For boats with Instant Book enabled, you will see a button labeled “Instant Book” in the message thread. 

Request to Book & Messaging an Owner

For boats without Instant Book enabled, you will see a button labeled “Book Now.” To pay, simply click on this button and enter your payment information. If the booking has been pre-approved, then payment will automatically be processed and the booking will be confirmed. If the booking is not pre-approved, the owner will have 72 hours to review your request. If the booking is approved within this 72 hour period, payment will automatically be charged and the booking will be confirmed. 

Request to Book

To begin, navigate to the boat listing page of your choice and click on the “Request to Book” button. You will be prompted to enter your trip and payment information (date, duration, passengers, etc.) From here, the booking will move into the “Payment held” state, where the owner has 72 hours to approve or decline the request. If the request is approved within this 72 hour period, payment will automatically be charged and the booking will be confirmed.

Messaging an owner

If you message an owner, you will be prompted to fill out details regarding your inquiry. In addition, you will be asked to include a message with information about your desired booking. Please click here to learn more about messaging an owner.

Pre-approvals: To pay for your pre-approved booking, go to your messages and open the conversation related to your booking. From the conversation, you can click “Book now” and continue to checkout. Once you have confirmed your payment, your booking will be automatically approved.
