CANCELLATION POLICY – WEATHER
WEATHER/CANCELLATIONS: If inclement weather is forecasted, our Captains will be watching the radar. A weather radar is most accurately read as close to the departure time as possible. We have OFTEN seen a bad weather forecast turn good 1-2 hours prior to a cruise. Therefore, we will try to wait as long as possible to cancel a private charter. Normally not sooner than 1-2 hours before departure.
By policy, we do not cancel our cruises indiscriminately. When the need arises, the following policy applies: If we cancel a trip due to unsafe conditions (i.e. weather) or mechanical issues the day of the trip and are unable to reschedule there is a full refund.
1. You may decide to shorten your trip and return to the dock at the originally scheduled ending time.
2. If our schedule allows, you may opt to receive the fully allotted time for your trip for an extra fee of $25 for every 15 minutes ($100 per hour).
