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.

Dangerous Weather is a Special Exception - Services may be delayed or canceled upon Captains request if weather, tides, or fog, make conditions unsafe. The captain will decide if the weather is unsafe, at that time you will have the option to reschedule. If rescheduling is not an option then you are not subject to any cancellation charges.

Four Winds Marina has parking available for $10 a day. If arriving after 5pm please call the ship store office to pre-arrange parking pass. 239-283-0250.

Cliff N Crystal King

“Captain Emily was awesome! She was on time for our charter to and from North Captiva. She offered great insight into things to do. On the trip back to the mainland, she even took time to show our kiddos some dolphins and was able to get them to jump and play behind the boat. What a great experience!!! We will definitely use her service again on our next trip! Thanks, Captain Emily!”

Ashleigh Shuford

“So easy breezy to schedule and get to N. Captiva Island from the marina! Captain Emily is super knowledgeable about the area’s wildlife and history. Learned a lot in just a short ride to the island. Also took the time to stop so we could see the manatees and dolphins along the way! Highly recommend!”

“Beautiful, amazing day sight-seeing, checking out manatees and dolphins, having lunch on Cabbage Cay. First rate, great, very clean and comfortable boat, it will accommodate a large family, very dry and stable, no worries. And, Emmy knows the area, she knows lots of history, fun and interesting. Last time we visited the area, we rented a boat, huge mistake, especially since we know about Emmy Girl Charters.”
