Boat Rules & Guidelines                           

These guidelines are required to ensure that your event is safe and successful. These rules must be followed, and we recommend that you go over this list with your guests before the cruise to avoid any confusion. Your Operator has full authority at all times, and will terminate the cruise if these rules are not followed. We also maintain communication with the Police for additional assistance.
