How can I avoid getting seasick?
It's a boat. There could be rough water. To avoid seasickness be good to yourself! A good night’s sleep and healthy diet will help a lot. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink the night before and the day of the charter. There are many products available over the counter to help with your possible seasickness. Take as directed prior to your trip.
Can we bring alcoholic beverages on the boat?
Alcohol is OK but please, in moderation! No glass containers are allowed. The sun, physical activity and motion of the boat can really ruin your day so please be careful. Our best advice to you is to take it easy the night before and bring other drinks on the boat so you’re not tempted to overdo it. Be advised, if behavior becomes unsafe on the boat, the Captain will end your charter and return you to the dock and there will be no refund.

Can I bring my own equipment?
If you must

Is there a bathroom on board?
