Private charters are available 7 days a week and take precedence over the Sunset Cruises and the 90 minute Nature Cruises. However you must make a reservation to hold the time and date.

Weather Policy:
The private charter is reserved once the contract is signed and the deposit is received.The captain determines if a charter is canceled due to inclement weather. Guests have the option to reschedule or be refunded their deposit.

Start and Stop Times:
The charter begins and ends at the times agreed to and specified in the charter contract.

In the case of a departure time delayed by the guests chartering the boat, the boat will still return as scheduled in the charter contract. If extra time is needed due to the delayed departure, it may be possible to extend the cruise at regular rates. This will be at Captain Don’s discretion as he must consider schedule, crew availability, etc.
