Rental Policy & Acknowledgment Form
Your captain will decide if your cruise will be cancelled or delayed due to current conditions and approaching systems. In general, we do cruise in some scattered showers, but not persistent rain. We will not begin a cruise during an electrical storm, moderate rain, or if we believe that such approaching conditions will be unavoidable during a cruise by altering course or returning to harbor. This decision will made by the captain, and you will be notified immediately if your captain determines that the cruise will be delayed or cancelled. If you do not show for your cruise and conditions do allow for a reasonable cruise (scattered showers at worst), this will be considered a no-show and date exchange may be offered for current available dates. No refunds.
Partial cruises are cruises which are shortened due to current or expected inclement conditions, or circumstances beyond our control. Our goal is for every cruise to be a perfect cruise, but sometimes safety and comfort force us to shorten a cruise. Date exchange maybe offered as substitute. No refunds

Waves and strong wind are sometimes a part of boating. The captain will take into consideration current conditions, trends, and forecasts in order to decide if it is safe and reasonable to cruise. Though it is not common, if you are prone to or are worried about motion sickness or sea sickness, please do not book a cruise, as no refunds can be made for returning to dock early.
You may bring alcoholic beverages (please avoid glass), but any passenger consuming alcohol must be at least 21, and passengers assume legal consequences due to illegal drinking of alcohol. Should you become intoxicated, or show up intoxicated, the captain reserves the right to deny service or return the offending individual/group to the harbor. No rescheduling will be available and no refunds will be issued for cruisesshortened or cancelled due to intoxicated guests.
It's nice to enjoy a few drinks while out for your cruise, but intoxicated individuals create unsafe and uncomfortable conditions for all. We want everyone to have a fun, enjoyable, and memorable cruise.
Please let us know the number and ages of children that will be on your cruise. so both you and we know what to expect. We also need to make sure that there is a reasonable number of adults for the number of children on board.
On very rare occasions, unforeseen events (e.g. changing weather, unexpected maintenance needs, etc.) may cause us to delay your cruise for up to 1 hour. If your cruise is delayed more than 1 hour, your cruise will be considered cancelled. We will only delay your cruise if we believe conditions will clear and allow us to cruise within that hour. Since cruises may be delayed up to 1 hour, please only make a reservation if you are able to return up to 1 hour later than thescheduled return time. If you choose not to wait for the possible start of a delayed cruise and conditions do allow a cruise within 1 hour, this will be considered a no-show and the corresponding fee will be charged.
Glass (except for white wine and champagne bottles) can be stored below and poured into boat safe cups that we provide. Dark liquids and sauces are discouraged (e.g. red wine, tomato sauces, grape juice, etc.) and depending on conditions may be restricted. Illegal substances are not allowed, and your captain is required by law to contact the U.S.
Coast Guard immediately if they believe you have illegal substances on board.
Under NO circumstances are illegal substances permitted on board. Any passenger bringing illegal substances on board will be held responsible for all damages that may be caused by such action, including but not limited to: entire cost of vessel due to confiscation by authorities, loss of income due to vessel down time, liability for injuries, legal fees incurred by all parties, etc... Captains are bound by U.S. Coast Guard Rules to immediately report all possession of illegal substances to authorities, who will meet us at the harbor or even board us on the water to take further action.
Swimming is at your own risk. Please tell us in advance of your cruise if you think you may want to swim. The captain reserves the right to not allow swimming based on conditions and the situation, and swimming is only permitted during full daylight hours. Should you decide to go swimming, you acknowledge that you assume all risks. Any adult that gives a minor in his/her care permission to swim is solely responsible for the safety of said minor. At least one adult guest per child in the water must be present. Strict adherence to the captain's guidelines must be followed or your cruise may be ended early with no refund. We don't mess around when it comes to safety. We suggest that if you plan to swim that youreserve a minimum of 3 hours.
Should passenger actions or behavior make the crew feel that safety is compromised, other guests are made to feel uncomfortable, or that they are unable to focus on driving the boat and maintaining safe conditions, the captain reserves the right to deny service and/or return the offending individual/group to the harbor. No refunds will be issued.
