Additional Terms & Information
Trip Pricing Two- and three-day weekend trips have fixed base prices regardless of the number of guests. S/V Bay Poet and her crew can accommodate a maximum of 4 guests. The overall trip price may be higher if the guests wish to spend one or more nights at a marina that is not the home marina for Bay Poet. Also, special requests regarding menu selection, group activities, day visitors, or any other extra services may add to the total trip price. We will provide a trip price quote to the primary client before accepting any reservation. The quote will take into account information provided by and requests made by the Primary Client. If special requests are made after receiving a price quote or after a deposit has been paid, we reserves the right to adjust the price of the trip in order to incorporate the updated requests. Any additional costs to be paid as a result of the special request will be due in full at the time of the final payment. Special requests made after the final payment may be declined. However, if such a request is accepted, any additional costs to implement the request must be paid at the time the request is accepted. Cancellation The Primary Client may cancel the trip up to 28 days before departure and receive a full refund of the deposit. If the final payment is not made 28 days before departure, we reserves the right to cancel the trip in its entirety. The deposit will be refunded less any non-refundable expenses which may have been incurred (i.e., non-refundable marina fees, special purchase items, or things which cannot be returned, etc.). If a client cancels a trip less than 28 days before boarding the vessel, all monies paid will be refunded less any non-refundable expenses which may have been incurred (i.e., non-refundable marina fees, special purchase items, or things which cannot be returned, etc.) and less a $100 cancellation fee. Regardless of how the Primary Client paid CF, all refunds will be made by check. If we cancel a trip for reasons not related to safety or Coast Guard restrictions, all monies paid will be refunded to the Primary Client. Trips will sail regardless of weather conditions unless in the opinion of us, forecasted weather conditions present an unacceptable risk to the vessel and those aboard. Furthermore, if the Captain of the Port of Baltimore restricts navigation on any or all of the waters for which a trip is planned, a given trip may not be able to proceed as originally planned. In either case, the Primary Client may choose to reschedule the trip or to receive a refund less the cost of any special or custom items purchased. Those items will be conveyed to the Primary Client as appropriate. If the Captain of the Port restricts navigation on any or all of the waters for which a trip is planned, a given trip may be able to proceed but not as originally planned. Unless a critical destination is made unavailable, CF will deem the trip as viable and plan to sail accordingly. If a critical destination is unavailable as a result of action taken by COTP, the Primary Client may choose to re-plan the trip for the same dates, to reschedule the trip, or to receive a refund less the cost of any special or custom items purchased Notification of cancellation by either party may be made by email. The party receiving notification of cancellation must explicitly acknowledge the notification by any means. If the receiving party does not acknowledge the cancellation within 48 hours of its being sent or more than 24 hours before boarding the vessel, whichever is earlier, the sending party must call the other party. Leaving a voice mail message shall be deemed adequate at any time. Guidelines and Requirements for clients The Primary Client is the point of contact between us and all guests who will participate in a given trip. To avoid confusion and errant messages, we will not entertain contact with anyone other than the Primary Client. We will provide information to the Primary Client that should be distributed among all guests. This includes information on what to expect, what to bring, and what not to bring. Firearms, pyrotechnics, drones, and controlled substances may not be brought aboard or used aboard Bay Poet at any time. This list should not be considered as all inclusive. Cigarette smoking only is permitted on board and then only in the rear of the cockpit. Pipe and cigar smoking is never allowed. Smokers must monitor and police their own ashes and butts. The entire party will be held responsible for any damage caused by careless smoking. We welcomes families of up to 4 people. The minimum age of any children in your party is 12. There must be at least one adult for each child under the age of 14. S/V Bay Poet is equipped with commercial-grade personal floatation devices (PFD) for people who weigh at least 90 lbs. If you are bringing children who weigh less than that or who are of a generally smaller build, the client guardian will be responsible for providing a correctly fitted PFD for each such child. The child must wear the PFD anytime they are on deck whenever the vessel is underway. They are not required to wear it while the vessel is at anchor or secured in a marina. They also do not need to wear it when below deck. The Captain will inspect the PFD upon boarding to verify that it is legal for its intended use. Please check with us in advance if you need guidance in selecting an appropriate PFD for a child. Guests are welcome to assist the crew in sailing the vessel, if they so desire. However, guests are not required to participate in any way in operating the vessel, except that they must follow the instructions of the crew at all times especially during emergencies. They will be given a briefing on various routine and emergency situations before departure. Clients will also be given instructions on using the various systems on board such as lights, water, and sanitation systems. Guests are encouraged to ask questions at ANY time.
