Hiring a caterer
Please let them know it is for Elite Charters then let Elite Charters know what caterer you are using, we will then contact them
Check they are providing:
condiments- sauce etc
Buns / Bread
Please ensure you bring sufficient food. A day on the water makes people hungry.
DRINKS & ALCOHOL
Using a Supplier
Please let them know it is for Elite Charters then let Elite Charters know what supplier you are using, we will then contact them
Check they are providing:
Ensure that there is lots of drinking water and non- alcoholic alternatives for your guests
As the organiser It is also a requirement of law that you provide non-alcholic drinks
Please be aware that no bottles of spirits are permitted onboard any boat
All the boats have a good sound system to cater for Mp3, iPods, phone, iPads or bluetooth.
We suggest that you bring your own aux cable as some of the new devices are slightly different.
Send them a map of the jetty where the boat is leaving from (Elite will provide this).
Let them know if it is paid parking.
Ask them to be on time as the boat has a limited time at the jetty.
Appropriate Dress – It gets cold on the river or on the way back from Rottnest, suggest your guests bring something warm, Towel, hat, sunscreen, water bottle
Appropriate footwear – It’s a boat, so high heels are not recommended. Please be aware many skippers ask that shoes be removed once onboard.
Set-up / Decorations
If you would like to decorate the boat please ring me so I can arrange something for you.
This will definitely depend on the boat and any charters they have that day 30 minutes is usually the maximum available. .
The boats plan to be at the jetty 15- 20 minutes before your charter start so guests can be loaded.
Most skippers are very accommodating and want you to have a great time so will happily extend your charter if they were late to the jetty.
Please be patient, often at very busy times it is difficult for your boat to get to the jetty at the exact time stated.
Skipper Contact Details
Make sure you have their number with you, Elite will have provided this.
As the organiser please introduce yourself to the skipper once you get onboard and discuss any requirements
To make sure your day is as successful as possible, it is important that your guests are not drunk and causing problems as this may result in that person being offloaded at the nearest jetty and possibly your charter cancelled.
AND REMEMBER – HAVE A FANTASTIC DAY!
Please ring me with any problems you may have or if I can provide any assistance.
