Additional Terms & Information
Thank you for booking with Sailing Islander! We are excited to welcome you onboard for your cruise! As I mentioned before, we will confirm with you directly via email and text on the day before your cruise, to provide your Captain’s name and phone number. We ask that you please call them when you arrive at the Marina, so they can come up and greet you at the gate and escort you to Islander on the docks. Please remember - we are a 100% NO SMOKING vessel. **LOCATION AND TRANSIT** You will board Islander at Liberty Harbor Marina in Jersey City, NJ - just 15 minutes from NYC by ferry or 20 minutes by PATH train. Liberty Harbor Marina is located at 11 Marin Boulevard, Jersey City, NJ 07302. For GPS, Uber/Lyft and maps, it is easiest to set your destination as “Surf City” restaurant in Jersey City - as the parking lot is shared with the Marina. If you drive, you can park for $5 at the Marina. If you take the PATH train from NYC, get off at Grove Street Station and we are just a 10-minute walk. If you take the ferry from NYC (via ferry at Brookfield/WTC, Midtown/W. 39th or Pier 11/WTC), get off at Liberty Harbor Marina / Marin Blvd Ferry Station and arrive right at the Marina! **ENJOY OUR FULL AMENITIES** You are invited to BYOB your beverages and snacks. We will provide bottled water and sodas. We offer a full kitchen and bathroom on Islander. Our kitchen has a small refrigerator and stove/oven, however, we recommend you make your food easy and simple (think picnic-style), so you do not need to spend your time prepping, when you should be outside enjoying your sail! We have all the amenities you need - plates, drinkware, flatware/utensils. Our refrigerator can hold your drinks to keep them cool, but if you require ice, please bring it aboard with you. **QUESTIONS AND FAQ** We encourage you to read our FAQ for common questions ********** but of course we welcome your questions via phone or text to *********. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon, to experience the excitement of Sailing Islander! **WEATHER POLICY** The Captain (and only the Captain) will make the call as to whether a tour is cancelled due to inclement weather. We will proactively reach out to you as far in advance as the forecast allows. We do continue to sail in hot, humid weather. As for rain, we want your experience on Islander to be exceptional - and that does not mean forcing you out on a rainy day. If it is raining the few hours prior to your charter, we are happy to rebook/reschedule the cruise within one year, but it will not be refunded. If you wish to continue with the cruise, Islander comes equipped with a very large bimini (cockpit cover) and we also welcome you to enjoy our bright, spacious inside lounging area. If the National Weather Service declares a small craft advisory, or if we otherwise expect excessive wind or rain, we reserve the right to cancel a tour for the safety of our guests. **LATE ARRIVALS** Guests are requested to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure an on time departure. Any amount of time you are late will reduce your booked time. For example, if you book a two-hour sail and are 30 minutes late, we can only make the duration of the voyage 1 hour and 30 minutes. This policy is created with respect to keeping other charters on time for guests who have voyages later in the day.
