It's our pleasure to offer our U.S. Coast Gaurd Certified Captain's. Our trained captain's will provide you with the best experience tailored to your needs.

As long as you have a designated captain, the rest of your group are free to enjoy adult beverages during your cruise, provided they are of legal age. Drinking responsibily is an expectation of ours.

Per USCG regulations we are not allowed to provide you with a captain. You are welcome to either supply your own captain that meets all of the owner and USCG regulations or you may choose a captain from a list of  pre-approved captains that we have vetted and are familiar with our vessel. Captain’s fee is separate and paid directly to the captain. Their average rate is $75/hour. Gratuity is not included (20% is standard). Once you book with us we will provide you with the list of captains.
