On the Day of Your Cruise

What happens if I am running late?

Depending on how busy the boat's calendar is you may be able to still enjoy the length of charter you have paid for but this is at the discretion of the boat partner; otherwise you cruise will end at the booked time.

I can't find my pick up location?

We will send you an address and map with the location of your pick up well before your cruise date. Should you struggle to find this location for any reason simply contact your skipper  and he/she will direct you. The skipper's number will be emailed to you when you make your booking and it will also be sent in the reminder email sent the day before you.

What to bring? What's not allowed? 

What clothing should I bring?

You should bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses, a seasonal jumper or jacket and swimming items, including a towel if you wish to have a swim, and this is possible with your boat selection. Of course don't forget any medication you may require and it's worth informing the skipper on the day or in advance.

Can I wear high heels?

This rule varies from boat to boat. As a general rule it's worth avoiding high heels and opting for flats or wedges that will be more stable should it get a little rocky out on the water. Larger vessels may allow high heels, stilettos are often disallowed across all vessels. If in doubt please ask.

Is BYO food and drink an option?

The majority of our boats accept BYO and often this is at an additional charge. Please check your boat's details or contact us for more information.

What sort of food do you suggest I bring on the boat? If it is BYO?

We always suggest that you bring boat friendly, picnic style food that requires minimal preparation on board. This does depend on the boat and the facilities onboard of course. Please check your boat's details or contact us for more information.

Do we need to bring ice?

You can bring your own ice or often this is supplied, normally at a small cost. Please check your boat's details or contact us for more information.

Other General Questions

Is a cruise suitable for children?

Yes, all vessels are very much child friendly but we do ask children are kept under adult supervision at all times.

Where is my pick up / drop off point?

Several of our vessels allow a range of pick up and drop off locations. Check the boat's details for where these are - you can select at the time of booking and fees will be shown. Maritime charges wharf pick ups and drops offs to all boats and these will be itemized in your cruise quote. Please see our wharf locations for more details.

Can one of our guests be pick up from another wharf?

This is sometimes acceptable but does depend on the boat selected for your cruise. Additional wharf fees may apply. Please see our wharf locations for more details.

Do I need to get there before the set time of the charter?

Yes. It's a good idea to be at your location at least 15 minutes prior to your charter time to allow loading of passengers and gear, and to enable enough time for safety briefings.

Note: Your charter will normally start and finish at the times of your booking and so if passengers are late arriving at the pick up point and the departure is delayed, you will lose some of your charter time on the water.

Normally wherever you want within your time frame and weather permitting. It's a good idea to speak with us in advance if there is a specific itinerary you would like to do.
