Pick Up/Drop Off Location: 13701 Fiji Way, Marina Del Rey, CA  90292. (called Dock 55)

Parking: Paid lot parking at Dock 55 and Fisherman's Village. Uber/Lyft okay. 

Late Arrivals:

The City controls Dock 55 for loading and unloading passengers.   We have to arrange times in advance with the city for our pick-ups and drop-offs.  If you’re late it will unfortunately count against your time, as the city limited our docking time to leave room for other charter boats.  

Cancellation Policy:

  • Your $250 deposit. Arrangements have to be made to reserve the boat, a captain and crew member as well as scheduling with other charter boats at Dock 55, if a charter is canceled within 3 days of a charter date or no cancellation received, deposit is forfeited by the client. 
  • Cancellations greater than 3 days.  The Full Deposit can be transferred to another day within 6 months but a time/date has to be preset or there is a $50 charge. Again, the city has the money and they will not refund it. Sorry, it's out of our control. 

6% Wharf Fee:

  • This is implemented from the Marina Officials

Refundable $250 Security Deposit:

  • See Cancellation Policy.
  • This security deposit is necessary for damages or excessive messes that require additional or professional cleaning.  For example: Upholstery tears, carpet stains, bodily fluid clean up.
  • Outsourced cleaning or repairs will be billed for the amount to repair.
  • Additional/excessive cleanup ie. bodily fluid (non-outsourced) $100 fee.
