Weather Policy: We do not have a ‘cruise, rain or shine – no refund policy'. If the weather forecast is for continuous or 100% chance of rain, hurricane or thunderstorms, or the U.S. Coast Guard issues a small craft warning for the Chesapeake Bay, the date of cruise can be rescheduled for any un-booked time slot. If the weather forecast is simply for chance of showers or rain or scattered thunderstorms or isolated thunderstorms or chance of thunderstorms, we will discuss the best, safe, fun and cruise routes with guests prior to departure. Generally, we shelter for passing thunderstorms and stay closer to port. 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.
If I damage the boat, what am I responsible for?All bareboat rentals must pay the $50 non-refundable insurance coverage. The $500 damage deposit is fully refunded, if there is no accident or damage to the boat within 48 of the charter. In the event you or your party cause damage or loss to the vessel, or to property belonging to a third party, you will be liable for the damage up to the value of the Security Deposit, except in the case of gross negligence as outlined below. If you or your party cause damage or loss to the vessel, or any ancillary equipment or to property belonging to a third party, and such damage or loss is caused as a result of gross negligence or reckless conduct, charters will be liable for the full extent of the loss suffered beyond that of the damage deposit. Acts that will be considered as gross negligence or reckless conduct include, without limitation, sailing outside of defined sailing areas and/or hours, negligent operation, sailing in adverse weather conditions, and sailing the vessel under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
