What is your cancellation Policy?
Weather is a part of any outdoor activity, we do not cancel any trips for precipitation or temperature. Please plan and dress appropriately for the weather the day of your trip. Captain Keith may cancel your trip if the weather is dangerous or too rough to navigate, based solely on his discretion. If Captain Keith does cancel your trip, your deposit will not be refunded, it will be applied to a makeup date in the future.
What should I wear?
Bring more clothing then you need for the season, you can always take off clothes, but you can’t put on what you don’t have. Wear comfortable shoes we will be standing a lot and your feet may get tired.
Always bring: Polarized Sunglasses, Sun Screen, Rain Gear – **REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER FORECAST**, Camera and a hat.
Do you supply Lunch?
I will supply water on the boat, but you are responsible for any other beverage or food you wish to bring. Alcohol is allowed in U.S. water only, please drink in moderation it’s never fun when someone has too much to drink, and becomes a danger for others onboard including the Captain.
Can I smoke?
Tobacco is allowed onboard, but please be careful with the ashes. However, marijuana is not allowed onboard the boat. If we are out on the lake and someone starts smoking weed or doing any other controlled substance, I will cut the trip short with no reimbursement.
What if I’m running late?
Make sure you are on time, and ready to go at the agreed start time of your Trip. Most of the time, we may have a charter after yours so we cannot extend your trip.
