Answers to FAQs:
- How soon should we make reservations? It is really never too early but if you prefer not to plan too far in advance this is what we recommend: For the Coastal sealife, dolphin and shelling cruise from February to May – 1 week at least, for the rest of the year -3 days. For the afternoon dolphin cruise -2 days. For the Sunset cruise from February to May 4 days, for the rest of the year - 2 days. All private charters from November to May – 1 month, for the rest of the year 2 weeks. These are just guidelines and do not come with guarantees. Please by all means, call us last minute for a tour, it is not uncommon for us to get last minute cancellations. Please do not be disappointed if you show up without a reservation and we are unable to accommodate you. Making advance reservations also helps us meet our minimum of 6 for the tours during our slower months (August thru October).
- What if the weather is bad? We will cancel a tour due to heavy rain, lightening, rough water, high winds, etc. However, in the Summer months, rain showers can materialize while we are out. We will call you if the radar indicates unsafe conditions for your tour and hope to postpone/ or reschedule if possible. If we cancel a trip for any reason, there is no charge.
