Weather including heavy rain and strong wind can prevent us from cruising. Safety is our main priority. If we have to cancel your trip due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstances on our end, no refunds are given but you will receive a credit so you can reschedule your trip at your convenience.
While there are no refunds for booked trips, we understand that things happen! You can reach out to us up to 7 days in advance of your scheduled trip to reschedule or to receive a credit to reschedule your trip. There is a $25 service fee for all cancellations and reschedulings. Since we are a seasonal business that relies on daily commitments, we are unable to accommodate changes within 7 days of your scheduled booking.
If your trip is cancelled due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstance on our end, no refunds are given but you can reschedule at your convenience or receive a credit.
Starting Memorial Day weekend. Possibly sooner if the weather is in our favor. Ending sometime in September/October weather permitting.
The boat leaves at the time you make your reservation for. We run on a schedule and must leave and return on time. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to boarding. Account for traffic on the day of your cruise and parking. If you have a private charter and are late, you will lose time on your trip. We must be back in time for the next trip.
