Your scheduled departure time is when the boat departs from the dock, not your group’s arrival time. We can not guarantee that your group will receive a full one hour cruise if you arrive late, as other groups may be scheduled to depart after your scheduled cruise. Rates will not be adjusted to reflect a shorter cruise. We reserve the right to sell any remaining tickets to additional passengers. You should plan on arriving 15-20 minutes prior to your departure time.
CANCELLATION: Cruises will depart as scheduled, unless severe weather conditions exist or are pending. We do operate the cruise in the rain.
RESTROOMS: Facilities are available onboard the boat. If you wish to use our dockside restrooms prior to departure, please allow adequate time in your schedule.
MEALS: You may bring your own sack lunch onboard the boat. The upper deck is designated for you to eat your lunches. No trash may be thrown overboard. Trash receptacles are located on each deck. A concession area is available on both decks that sell pop, water, chips and candy. Please let us know when booking your cruise if you want to have the concession area open or closed.
