Can I reserve today for tomorrow's outing?
It depends on capacity and current reservations. Obviously calendar holidays fill up quickly as do weekends. So the earlier you make your reservations, the better it is for you and your party to get the date and time you want. Check our online reservations calendar for availability. If you don't see anything for the date you want, chances are, we're booked. You may try our reservations line to see if there are any last minute cancellations.
Do I have to purchase food and beverages?
No. You may rent the whole boat with no food and beverage to "test" the boating experience before you purchase our food and beverage packages for you and your group.
What if we're part of a large group? Can we use more than one boat?
You can reserve several boats to travel to the same destination.
What if I have a coupon that is expiring soon?
Call our reservation line. We may be able to find a seat for you or even extend your expiration date to the next available opening. Do not wait until the last minute to make your reservation. Seating is very limited and we don't want you to be disappointed.
Are there bathrooms on the boat?
No. We encourage you to take care of business before boarding.
I am pregnant. Can I still ride?
Many women who are pregnant can ride our boats during all stages of their pregnancy. However, every pregnancy is different so we encourage you to consult your physician.
Can Seniors take part in the trip?
Participants our boat excursions may be exposed to sun, rain and other outdoor elements. Please consider these features in determining suitability for all passengers.

All guests, including those with disabilities or use a wheelchair must be able to transfer into and out of the boat by themselves or with the assistance of a member of their party.
Will I get wet?
Our boats are subject to waves as well as to others' boat maneuvers that can create waves and spray. All passengers should expect to get at least some spray. The amount of water depends on weather and water conditions. No seat is guaranteed to be permanently dry. Prepare accordingly and you will enjoy the experience.
I have a bad back. Can I still ride?
For medical advice, we recommend you consult your physician before joining us. Your safety is our top priority so please make us aware of any conditions that might impact your experience.
Are there any age restrictions for children?
No, there are no age restrictions and we provide lifejackets that fit children. Car seats and carriers are not permitted on the boats. We strongly suggest a front pack or wearable carrier and all infants must be held by an adult. Keep in mind this can be a bit overwhelming for some children and refunds will not be given if we have to return to the dock.
