Severe weather is determined solely by the Captain of the vessel. If we cannot reschedule, a full refund will be given. We always show up to the boat regardless of the forecast that day, the weatherman is only correct 1% of the time. Just because it rains earlier in the day does not mean we will cancel your sail that afternoon or evening. If the captain determines the weather is unfit for a sail before you arrive they may call you to reschedule or refund.

Cancellation By Guest
