RULES, GUIDELINES & FINES
It is our mission to provide a safe and fun option for anyone looking to enjoy the water and charter a
vessel. You and your guests must abide by the rules and guidelines set forth in order to keep you, your guests, the Crew, and the Vessel safe.
Any violation of these rules will result in fines and fees charged to the credit card of the Charterer. By
signing this agreement, you are agreeing to any of these fines and charges. The Captain and Crew have the right to terminate your charter at any time if your actions and behavior puts you, your guests, the Crew, or the Vessel at risk and NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN REGARDLESS OF THE TIME NOT
USED ON THE VESSEL. In addition to the full charter price being charged, the Charterer will also be responsible for any and all fuel expenses, taxes, gratuity, and other expenses incurred including but not limited dockage, provisions, etc.
The rules and guidelines include but are not limited to:
1. THE LEGAL PASSENGER CAPACITY OF THE VESSEL MAY NOT BE EXCEEDED
for any reason, at the commencement or during the charter. THIS IS A FEDERAL LAW
AND ANY CITATIONS BY THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD (or any other law
enforcement agency) ARE THE FULL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CHARTERER. If the
Coast Guard or other governmental agency administers a fine you will be responsible for the
fine and all legal costs associated with the fine. The Captain will report any overboarding
and has the full right to terminate the Charter with no refund of the deposit of full charter

marinas strictly prohibit loud or vulgar music, and the Captain and Crew needs to be able to

allowed to turn up the music and have a good time. You acknowledge that the Captain and
Crew have complete control over the volume of music and it can be turned down for any

6. NO JUMPING OFF OF THE VESSEL while it is underway or when the motors are running.
Whether you are wanting to jump in the water, onto a beach, dock, or other surface, you must
wait for instructions from the Captain or Crew. YOU MUST ALWAYS INFORM THE
CREW if you are jumping in the water.
7. LISTEN TO AND FOLLOW THE CAPTAIN AND CREW’S INSTRUCTIONS AT ALL
TIMES. The Captain and Crew have a duty to keep you, your guests, the Vessel, and
themselves safe. They have the final say in safety. LISTEN TO THEIR INSTRUCTIONS
AT ALL TIMES.
