  • Substitution Policy

Occasionally, itinerary changes may be necessary due to inclement weather and corresponding rough seas.  However, the determination of "bad weather" is made by the boat Captians and by NOAA only.  A few rain showers are typical of the area and not indicative of a true low pressure or cyclone formation.  We do not allow any of our rental boats or boat charters out during any true bad weather though we will issue a voucher to reschedule your boat rental or charter for a future date within our 90 days reschedule policy.
