Gulf Charters is happy to assist with the arrangement of onshore accommodation; we offer several options ranging from budget hut style bungalows through to 4 star accommodation, all located within walking distance of the marina. Alternatively you may make your own arrangements, however we do recommend that you arrange to stay close to the marina as transportation to and from central Pattaya can be difficult and expensive.

Once you have decided which course, package or event is right for you, then check the schedule and find the most convenient dates. We require a 25% deposit to confirm booking and hold your place on the selected dates. Courses and events are limited in size and space will be awarded based on the order in which deposits are received. Once we receive your deposit, we will e-mail you the appropriate course instruction manuals or event package information for your review before you arrive. Please contact us directly for payment instructions.

Our most popular package, the Gulf Charters Sailing School Zero to Hero program is designed to take students through all of our IYT course offerings in a fast paced 11 to 14 Day Training Session which combines classroom theory, weather and navigation exercises, linehandling and ropework, marina docking and sailing drills, onboard yacht orientation, passage planning, live-aboard sailing experience and other sailing skill essentials. Students typically log over 500 nautical mile of hands-on sailing experience during the program. The full-time nature of the Zero to Hero program immerses students in the ways of ships and the sea and is a proven method of providing students with the knowledge and abilities they need to go sailing. At the end of your training session, you will be examined and evaluated to receive your IYT Bareboat Captain certificate.

The Zero to Hero package price includes on board accommodation for the nights the vessel is underway, all meals onboard, all yacht and instructor costs, all classroom materials, IYT Passport to Yachting/Logbook, IYT Registration and IYT Bareboat Captain Certificate upon course completion.

For onshore accommodation options, please refer to the "Accommodation Options" paragraph above.

These sailing adventures are scheduled throughout the year and the destination and itinerary varies based on which boats are available and the time of year. Ko Chang, Ko Samui, Ko Samet and Cambodian waters are all possible. Our monthly internet mailer reports on highlights of upcoming voyages. The price includes all your expenses except for provision, alcohol and meals ashore. We provision as a group to provide a valuable lesson of what to purchase for each day of the trip.

Unless other arrangements have been made, total payment is due on the first day of class or before departure for other Join-In Events and can be paid by cash or credit card in our office.

We understand that your schedule can change. Should a student cancel his enrollment before the course date, the deposit is non-refundable, but we are usually able to transfer your deposit payment to other more convenient dates without additional charge. Please give as much notice as possible so we can fill the vacancy.

Should a student "no show" or decide to not continue with the training program or event, for any reason, Gulf Charters Thailand reserves the right to award a refund, either all, part or none of the payment received, on an individual basis.

In general, we try to be very flexible on deposit payments and refunds. We want to maintain a solid relationship with all of our students and potential students. Please contact us if you have any concerns in this matter.
