  • 25% deposit due at time of booking
  • Remaining balance due ahead of casting off (departing)
  • Credit card payments accepted through Square.  Arrangements for cash payments can be made.


  • If cancelled due to weather we will refund or reschedule with you, which ever works best for you.  Weather cancellations are caused by actual or forecasted moderate rain (or drizzle) on the evening (6pm) before the day of the cruise or a small craft advisory (or worse) being issued for the San Francisco Bay for the period of the cruise.  We will contact you directly to confirm the cancellation and at that time you may request the cruise continue as planned if you wish (we don't mind the rain or swell), reschedule or cancel.
  • If cancelled for other reasons by clients up to 72 hours before the trip the deposit can be used to re-book a cruise at an available time within 3 months of the planned trip.  Within 72 hours of the planned trip a client cancellation will result in lost of deposit.
