Frequently Asked Questions

How do we pay the skipper?

When you book a bareboat charter, you pay for the boat and driver separately.

To secure your booking, you pay a $150 deposit, and this goes toward the boat portion ($550). On the day of your cruise, you pay the captain $200 (cash/venmo) separately, and the remaining amount for the boat is charged, which is $400 (subtracting the $150 deposit).

When you book, a $150 deposit is taken, and you pay the captain $200 on the day of the cruise, making the total $895. The captain fee for the 8 hour charter is $400.

Give us a call if you have any questions!

What is the cancellation policy?

Since we are a seasonal business, all bookings are subject to a strict 7-day cancellation policy. The charge will not be refunded if you cancel within 7-days of your cruise. Trips may be rescheduled, but are subject to availability. Cancellations within 7-days will not be refunded for any reason, including sudden illness or injury. Be prepared to lose your deposit if you do not show up for your cruise.

What if the weather is bad?

If the weather is unsafe and the Captain calls off the activity, the tour may be rescheduled for a later time or a full refund will be issued. This decision is at the Captain’s discretion. Temperature, the color of the water, and overcast days do not apply to a weather-related cancelation.

Is there a bathroom?

This boat does not have a bathroom onboard, but the skipper is aware of the closest restrooms.

Can I bring alcohol?

Yes, you are welcome to bring you favorite drinks. We just ask that you please do not bring glass bottles.

Can we bring our own food and drinks?

Absolutely! We will provide a cooler filled with ice and encourage you to fill it with your favorite food and drinks. Take full advantage of having a captain responsible for driving while you enjoy the day!

Do babies count as passengers?

Yes. The United States Coast Guard counts every living, breathing person on the boat as a passenger on the vessel. We are legally only allowed to carry a certain number of total passengers (plus captain and crew). 

What should I pack?

Pack like you would when visiting the beach or pool. Towels, sunscreen, swimsuits, coverups, drinks, snacks, water games, and floats are all recommended. You may also want to bring cash for Crab Island vendors if you would like to use their services, and gratuity for captain and crew (optional, but customary and appreciated!). 

Are dolphin sightings guaranteed?

Although it is extremely rare not to see dolphins on a cruise, it happens occasionally. Dolphins are wild animals. Some days they are shy, some days they are off following the food, some days they are simply hard to find. We spend every day on the water, which allows us to know their favorite spots and their habits according to the time of day. Dolphins love to keep us on our toes, but we always make a valiant effort trying to find them!
