What is the bad weather policy?

If we have lightning, heavy rains, or dangerous winds,  the captain will cancel the charter (CAPTAIN MAKES THE CALL ON WEATHER, NOT THE CUSTOMER). If there is a light sprinkle, the boat will still go out on the charter. If the weather starts out nice, then we run into in-climate weather, we will bring the boat back in early, and you will only be charged for the time you were out. Captain makes the call on the weather, not the customer!

Austin’s weather is much different than any other part of the country…for example, a large cell could be coming up from the Gulf of Mexico, and would have extremely heavy rains hit Houston. When the cell makes it’s way up to Austin, because we are in the hill county, the cell will break up and hit different parts of Austin and surrounding areas. We can get heavy rains in downtown Austin, and it will not hit Lake Travis, or vise-versa… As it passed through Austin, it many times reorganizes itself, and hammers Dallas, just as it does Houston. Even if we have a 70-90% chance of rain, it is not a gaurentee that we will get it, or it will be short bursts like what you see in Florida, and things are back to normal in 15 minutes.

AGAIN, WE CALL IT ON THE WEATHER! LAST SECOND CANCELLATIONS BY THE CUSTOMER WILL BE CHARGED THE FULL BALANCE ON THE BOAT.
