Deposits are non-refundable within 3 weeks of your charter. They are non-refundable due to the time it takes to prep these boats for charter. This work happens all during the week, as well the day of the charter, which employees need to be compensated for. Unfortunately we have no control over the weather, and we do our best to reschedule you for another time if it works with your schedule. All of the other companies have a similar policy, if not a more expensive deposit than we do. No cancellations within 48 hrs of the charter. Credit card will be billed in full for charter and the captain service fee.
