There is no power available during the sail, so please be prepared with supplies for your children as we do not have the ability to warm food or bottles.

    What to wear/bring: You may wish to bring along a lap blanket and be sure to dress for the weather. Even in summer, it can be cooler on the water, so bring along a jacket or sweater if needed. Wear closed-toe, soft soled shoes.

    Cancellation: If severe weather (thunderstorms, excessive winds, etc.) prevents us from being able to safely leave the docks, we will issue a cancellation and full refund of your purchase. Please be advised that we will not cancel in the event of light rain/mist. Rain gear/poncho is then suggested. Cancellation notices are sent out via email typically two hours prior to the planned departure time.
