*NOTICE* – Boating may require modest to strenuous physical exertion, dexterity, and endurance. Maintaining one’s balance, hanging onto railings during moderate to heavy seas can be tiring. It is your responsibility to ensure you possess suitable physical fitness to comfortably manage the aforementioned. If in doubt, please seek the appropriate medical advice of a qualified physician before purchasing our services or boarding our boats.
Persons failing to wear a US Coast Guard (USCG) approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD aka “life jacket”), while aboard any boat, have a greater risk of drowning than those who wear PFD’s, especially persons with little or no swimming abilities. Although the US Coast Guard only requires approved PFD’s be worn aboard boats by persons under the age of 13, we highly encourage all of our clients wear a PFD while aboard any vessel. We will provide our clients with USCG approved PFD’s to wear on our boats if they desire. If preferred, clients may bring their own USCG approved PFD. It will be the client’s responsibility to inspect their own PFD to ensure it is USCG approved and is safe to wear. The Captain however, will inspect ALL PFD’s to be worn by persons under the age of 18 to ensure they are safe and USCG compliant. If they are deemed unsafe or not compliant by the Captain, the child will be required to use our PFDs. Adult clients electing not to wear a PFD will do so at their own risk. A situation may arise where the Captain may require everyone aboard to wear a PFD.
