Packing up

 

Don’t forget to bring on board…

  • Suncream
  • A big smile 🙂

 

Paco and his friends

A hat is very appreciated when the sun’s beating down!

 

What not to bring…

 

  • Don’t bring too much. The less you bring the better it is. We don’t need that much on a boat. It’s just a friendly advice

  • Unless docking in a Marina Hairdryers are not allowed as boat batteries get flat

Landing in Ibiza Island

 

First of all…Welcome !!!!

 

Once at Ibiza’s airport reach me via WhatsApp +34 638 74 17 33 to let you know where is the meeting point. I will send you the exact location.

 

We usually do the check-in in San Antonio but sometimes, due to the weather forecast, we choose another spot to make sure that all goes smoothly.

 

The captain.

That’s Fede, the captain, so you get to recognize him when picking you up 🙂

 

The easiest and more comfortable way to get the meeting point would be by Taxi. If you are more than 4 pax I will send you the contact of a big taxi, up to 8 pax. It will be cheaper than two taxis.

 

You can also get a bus at the airport that will take you straight to San Antonio.

 

Getting San Antonio

 

The meeting time it’s from 16:00 in San Antonio Bay.

 

If you getting the bay before 16:00 I recommend you do the shopping before getting on board in order to save time and start your adventure as soon as possible.

 

I will send you via WhatsApp some Supermarket Locations.

 

If you haven’t done the shopping before coming on board, no worries,  you can do it just after checking-in.

Geronimo’s Kitchen

  • In order to light your shopping, I will let you know  If I have other items on board as olive oil, vinegar, coffee, etc.

 

  • Geronimo has a big fridge compare to other catamarans but still smaller than the one we normally have at home.

 

  • If you are staying for a week you don’t need to do the shopping for the whole week. We will anchor in several places where you can get whatever you need.

 

  • It is standard in the charter boat business to provide provisions for the Captain.

 

  • You will probably have some lunch or dinners inland (don’t buy too much).

 

  • Breakfast will happen onboard every morning

 

  • Please, get a reusable bag(s). You can find it a the supermarket. It’s cheap, resistant, durable and very handy.

    it can be used again and again!

 

  • When buying water try to get big containers. For instance; a five liter-bottle instead of five one-liter bottles.

    Easy and ECO

     

  • 1,5 liters of water is the recommended daily dose. Stay hydrated is important!

Once On Board

 

First of all …..Hola!!! 🙂

 

Once the shopping is done and the luggage placed, it is time for a quick briefing for you to know about safety on board,  all you need to know about Geronimo (that’s the name of the catamaran), itinerary, etc…and, of course, any question you may have.

 

Some paperwork as to be done, no worries, it’s only gonna take five minutes.

 

  • Please remember to bring your I.D.

 

  • If there is any money left to be paid please remember to bring it cash. All due amounts have to be paid before taking the anchor up.

 

And…we are ready for your week charter around Ibiza and Formentera  !!!!

Electricity on Board.

 

As in many boats of similar features catamaran, Geronimo works on 12V, same as a car.

 

We also have a 220V inverter for computers and any other device.

 

All the energy aboard comes from Service Batteries. Those are charged with both, solar panels and engines.

Let’s say, the less energy we use, the less we will start the engines and therefore, the less noisy it will get.

Besides, we will save fuel…less CO2!

We are Very ECO-friendly in ChartersEleven 🙂

 

Music devices

 

Geronimo has a CD player as the one found in cars. You can bring your own CDs.

 

We also have a JBL 3 Bluetooth speaker.

 

We love music!

Music is alway appreciated on board!!

 

Water on board

 

We have a non-potable water tank that can hold up to 780 litters, which is quite a big water tank for a boat. Usually, it’s up to 600 litters for similar feature catamarans.

 

But water flies away if we don’t take care of it.

 

We don’t want to waste any time of your days in Ibiza getting into a pier to fill up the water tanks. It takes quite a long time!

 

No worries, water  will last for the whole trip if we all follow some easy rules. I will let you know when briefing. 🙂

 

Last year I spent two weeks with 7 people on board and water last for their whole stay. I also spent three days with 4 people and they empty the water tanks. It is just a matter of being aware of water consumption.
