General Rental Policies

Alcohol Policy:

You may bring alcoholic beverages aboard, including red wine and punch drinks. Glass is prohibited except for wine or liquor bottles. Any passenger consuming alcohol must be at least 21, and passengers assume legal consequences due to drinking of alcohol. All guests should have proper ID in the event the Captain requests to verify your age.

Intoxication:

Should a guest become intoxicated, or show up intoxicated, the captain reserves the right to deny service or return the offending individual/group to the dock. No rescheduling will be available and no refunds will be issued for charters shortened 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.

Inappropriate Behavior:

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 cruising the boat and maintaining safe conditions, the captain reserves the right to deny service and/or return the offending individual/group to the dock. No refunds will be issued.
