How many people can we bring?

Our charters are limited to 6 people by the US Coast Guard.

What do we bring?

You are welcome to bring anything you would like to eat or drink during your charter.  We have a fridge on board but if you would like to bring a cooler that works too.

Do you run charters all year?

Yes, as long as there is not high wind warnings in the forcast or a rough sea state. 

Can I smoke on board?

Sorry, our boat is a non-smoking boat.  You will have opportunities to smoke before and after the charter on the dock.  

Can we ride on the front deck?

While this would be fun and exciting it is not safe while under way.  However if you would like to spend some time on the front deck then we could find a quiet cove to anchor and hang out.

We have lifejackets for all of the adults, we do have some for children but they are limited so let us know when you book and we will plan accordingly.

What should I wear?

Dress for the weather, we do have a enclosed cockpit and salon with heat and will have blankets available for those that run a little colder.  In the warm months we will open up all the windows to catch the breeze.  Shoes should be sensible, heels while attractive do not make great boat shoes.
