Private Catamaran FAQWhat to Expect
Is there shade on the boat?

Yes! The bridge deck has plenty of shade.

Where will we go?

We will be sailing in the Currituck Sound, known for great wind, beautiful coastline and very little boat traffic!

Do you provide life vests?

Yes! Nor’Banks provides clean and comfortable life vests for your entire party. We have plenty of children’s life vests in less than 30 lbs., 30-50 lbs. and 50-90 lbs. sizes. Life vests are required for children under 13.

Can we bring our own life jackets?

Yes! You may use your own life vest as long as it is Coast Guard approved.

Can we bring a dog?

Unfortunately your four legged friends will have to sit this one out.

Is there a captain to sail the boat?

Yes! You will have a captain and crew. If you’re interested in taking a turn at the helm, speak with your captain!

What is the capacity of Surfer Girl?

Surfer girl is certified by the coast guard for up to 18 passengers or 3000 pounds in addition to the captain and crew. This is a strict legal limit, regardless of the size of the passengers. We allow online booking for up to 15 passengers for your private cruise. If you believe that your group of 16-18 passengers plus gear is under 3000 pounds, please call to book your charter!

Can we stop and swim?

On private charters you will have the option to stop and swim! There are a few great little secret spots to anchor and enjoy the water and the scenery.  We recommend booking three hours if you’d like to weigh anchor.

Can we bring a cooler with drinks and food?

Yes! You are welcome to bring drinks and food.

Can we bring alcohol?

Yes! You may bring beer and white wine. Please refrain from bringing red wine (it stains), liquor or glass beer bottles.

What is your cancelation policy?

We require 48 hours notice for a refund. No refund will be issued within 48 hours unless inclement weather prevents your trip. Light wind or cloudy skies are not grounds for cancellation.

Can I book for longer than 2 hours?

Yes! You can book up to a maximum of four hours. If you have any questions about how much time would be best for your group, please call us at 252-261-2900.

Do infants and children count as a passenger?

Yes, they do. The United States Coast Guard considers every person, except for the Captain and crew toward the 18 passenger limit.

What time should I arrive for my cruise?

We highly recommend arriving 30 minutes before your cruise is scheduled to depart. If you’re running late, please contact us and let us know.

What should I wear?

Spring and fall- layered clothing and a light jacket. Summer time- light clothes, shorts, sunglasses or a hat for the sun. We will ask you to leave your shoes at the dock.  Please apply spray-sunscreen on land prior to departure.

Do you have a bathroom on board?

We have a marine head aboard. We encourage you to use the restroom prior to departure.

Should I tip the captain and crew?

Yes, your crew works for tips!  As with other service industries, tips are discretionary based on your satisfaction with the service provided by your captain and crew. A customary tip is 18-25% of your charter or ticket.

Sail aboard our new Maine Cat 38, Surfer Girl! The boat will be sailed by a U.S.C.G. certified captain and mate, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride. Built to strict U.S. Coast Guard standards, Surfer Girl is comfortable and stable but also fast and exciting to sail.

You are welcome to bring your own beer, white wine, and snacks aboard. The forward trampolines are perfect for enjoying a drink as the sun dips below the horizon. Sail with us and see why Sail Magazine named Maine Cat 38 Best Multihull Cruising Boat under 40ft.

Surfer Girl is available for 2-4 Hour Private Charters at Nor’Banks all summer long. We’ll tailor the sail to fit your group of up to 15 passengers with a relaxing sunset cruise or a day sail with a stop for swimming and diving from the boat or playing on our giant floating mat. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and beverages!
