What about inclement weather?
A light rain will not prevent us from cruising, but unsafe boating conditions will result in trip cancellation. If a trip is cancelled due to weather or any other concerns, every effort will be made to notify all reservation holders in a timely manner.
What is your cancellation policy?
We require 24 hour notice for cancellation of cruises. Participants who fail to show for a cruise reservation or cancel without 24 hour notice (e-mail or confirmed phone call) will not receive any refund. Cancellations made before 24 hours of your scheduled event will receive a full refund. Cruises depart on time. No refunds will be issued for late arrivals.
