steve, Thank you so much for accommodating our group so last minute. As you know, we are in town for a country music festival in ipswich and we’re so glad to spend our day off on the ocean. Obviously, we booked under our alias for confidential reasons. That being said, we want you to know the social investment of Kelsea alone is $30,000. Old dominion is an equally influential act. As you’ve already posted and tagged (without approval), we would like to arrange an agreement. Kelsea is willing to post one more instagram photo (1.1 million followers) and tag your company with the compromise that you offer a discount to your services. Looking forward to hearing back from you and thank you again for a great day. looking forward to a long relationship!

You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
Bookings and Cancellation Policy Refunds are not permitted after booking. Wet weather policy: Our company offers a generous wet weather policy however it is very possible to have a good time on board our vessels in the rain. We have looked after many guests who sailed on rainy days only to state that it actually made it even more fun! The golden rule…bring your own sunshine…a positive approach and outlook is all that is needed to have a good time in any weather. Though we do enjoy 300 days of sunshine on the Gold Coast ha ha… Please be advised that we make the weather determination on the day of the charter using local observations and Radar images. We do not use weather forecasts (t.v weather reports, BOM etc) as these are seldom accurate and not localised to our particular area of operation. In some weather conditions it can be difficult to predict the rainfall over a specific 3 hour period so please be prepared to come to the marina (and perhaps have a plan B in the area) as we may be unable to predict in advance. We reserve the right to delay the departure time for up to 2 hour to allow the rain to pass (3 hours for full day bookings). In this case we will either extend the charter or if this is not possible due to conflicting bookings, refund the equivalent portion of the charter cost. If it looks like raining heavily for the entire duration of the charter and you do not wish to sail (we urge you to reconsider see above) we will offer the opportunity to reschedule or will refund your charter payment in full as whilst there is ample cover on the boat we do want you to enjoy your experience. If it is just overcast or cloudy, or there may be a passing rain event, we would still expect the trip to go ahead as planned as we have reserved the day for your and more than likely refused other bookings. You can also still have a great time in the rain, especially in summer! Alcohol & Guest Behaviour Whilst we do want everyone to have a great time on board the vessel, due to our RSA obligations and to ensure the safety of patrons, our company has some strict rules which must be adhered to at all times.
