Weather Policy We do not have a ‘cruise rain or shine – no refund’ policy.

If the weather forecast is simply for ‘chance of showers or rain’, or ‘showers” or ‘scattered thunderstorms’ or ‘isolated thunderstorms’ or ‘chance of thunderstorms’, we will discuss the best fun and water activities and cruise routes with you prior to departure. Generally, we shelter for passing thunderstorms and stay closer to post. If the U.S. Coast Guard issues a ‘small craft advisory’ for the Chesapeake Bay, we will restrict our cruise destinations to the South River.
