What time should I arrive?
We recommend that you be at the marina 15 minutes prior to the start of your charter. This will give you the opportunity to get comfortable with the boat, as well as allow us time to review boating safety with you.
What should I wear?
Always dress for the season. Dressing in layers is highly recommended. Please keep in mind that when you are on the water it is typically cooler than being on shore. Soft-soled shoes and flip-flops are allowed although most guest tend to go barefoot once on the boat. Sunglasses are typically a plus also.
Are there restrooms?
Yes. We have a private electric toilet for your use.
Can I bring food, drinks and/or adult beverages?
We provide chips, crackers, sodas and bottled waters for all charters. You are more than welcome to bring food, drinks and adult beverages if you would like. Food items that require little or no on-board preparation are recommended. Ice for refrigeration is provided. We can arrange a catered meal if you would like. Adult beverages should be consumed in moderation…safety first.
Do I need to bring anything?
Although we do have a bimini for shade, we advise you to bring sun protection. Sunbeams reflect off of the top of the water.
Will I get seasick?
Everyone reacts to sailing on the ocean differently. If you are prone to motion sickness, there are multiple remedies you can try. Non-drowsy medications (consult your doctor for the latest/greatest anti-sick medications), wrist-bands, skin patches, ginger-based food or drinks and more are a few options guests have used on our charters.
What do we do if there is poor weather?
Safety is a priority at Island Song Charters. Your captain reserves the right to postpone or cancel your charter if conditions are not ideal, and will call you if we are unable to sail.
What is your cancellation policy?
If your captain cancels your charter due to inclement weather and you are unable to arrange a “make-up” day, you will receive a full refund of your tickets.
Please contact us regarding any other cancellation concerns.
What is your tipping policy?
Tipping your captain/crew is optional and is greatly appreciated. A typical tip is generally 15 – 20%.
