Q: What Should You Bring?

A: Bottled water, drinks, snacks, or anything to keep you going while having fun! There is a cooler on the boat, bring a bag with snacks and drinks to put in the cooler, or bring your own, but DO NOT buy a Styrofoam Cooler to take on the boat! They always break apart into pieces and end up in the ocean!


Q: What If the Weather is Bad?

A: Always stay in touch with the Captain about weather conditions. Regardless of what you think the weather looks like, head down to the dock and Captain Chris will make a decision from there. If it’s totally obvious you are not going out, then don't bother getting everyone out of bed and your trip will be rescheduled. Booking early in the week ensures getting the best trip possible.

Q: Are Life Vests Mandatory?

A: Life Vests are mandatory, and there are enough for everyone on board. New life vests are purchased every year and there are two of each child sizes. Your infant, toddler, and your texting teenager are all covered.


Q: How many people can you bring?

A: Right now, the boat holds 6 people very comfortably. Children, no matter how small, are still people according to the Coast Guard. Even if they are little wrecking balls. Captain Chris can easily arrange a second boat to accommodate larger groups and does so on a daily basis. Always arrive 15 minutes before the beginning of your trip. Make sure everyone has used the restroom beforehand. If you are late and another trip is scheduled after yours, the boat comes back at the scheduled time. If there isn’t another scheduled trip after yours, most of the time he'll run the extra time. Be prepared! The more prepared you are, the better your entire experience will be.
