I understand delays occur when you're traveling. However you have booked these specific dates and times, and I may have other bookings. Please be courteous and keep in touch as soon as you encounter a delay. I will do my best to accommodate your changes, but additional fees may be applied.

I try not to limit you on how to pack, however I have suggestions on how to pack so your belongings fit in the boat storage areas. Publix pre-ordered groceries come boat packed with its groceries in a brown paper bag with a plastic grocery bag on the outside. I also recommend reusable grocery bags. Please avoid using rubbermaid containers and cardboard boxes. Unfortunately these do not fit in the storage area and end up taking up passengers' seating. Also please avoid large coolers. Coolers must be manageable for the captain to lift on and off the boat.

You have up to 24 hours prior to your departure time to make any changes or cancellations. If reservation is canceled within 24 hours of departure time, services are non-refundable and non transferable.
