Sag Harbor Weather - Boat Ride Weather Cancelations

We closely monitor the weather so that you don't have to!

Local Weather Conditions – Our boat ride schedule may occasionally be affected by rain, wind or fog. Captain Don keeps a close eye on the local forecast and also uses multiple radar and wind apps.  He consults with the Sag Harbor Harbormaster and local boat captains to get an accurate picture of current local boating conditions.

Rough Seas – Because we do not go “out to sea” and stay within the harbor and Peconic Estuary System, we are not affected by rough seas.  Sometimes guests ask about rough seas from a passing storm that is out to sea, but this rarely will affect your trip.

Private Charters

If there is a possibility that the weather may affect your private boat charter, we will be in touch with you in the days before your trip.  If you do not hear from us as the trip draws near, other than the automated 24 hour reminder email, you can assume the weather looks good.  Typically we are already in close contact with you to ensure you have all of the information you need for a memorable trip.

Open Boat Ticket Holders

Weather Cancelation Notice – For both the Two Hour Sunset Cruise and the 90 Minute Nature Cruise, email and text message notifications of a canceled cruise go out a minimum of 2 hours before the scheduled departure*.  We may also send out a warning on the day before a trip to let you know your trip may be in jeopardy.  Please note that you will only receive a text message notification if you opt-in by checking the box when purchasing tickets:

Responding to a Cancelation Notice – We only need to know that you have received the cancelation notification as soon as possible so that we can stop trying to contact you.  Your decision on whether to rebook for another day, receive a gift card, or receive a full refund can be made anytime.

* If you need to be notified of a cancelation earlier than the 2 hour window, please let us know.
