The vessel will depart the dock at 7:00pm. It is imperative that you arrive beginning at 6:00 pm and no later than 6:30pm. Please consider traffic and parking and give yourself enough time to get to the dock. We unfortunately cannot hold the boat for any late arrivers. In other words, the boat waits for no one!

What if I'm running late?

Please email [email protected] if you are running late, however, the boat must depart at its scheduled time. Please give yourself ample time to arrive, allowing ample time in the event of traffic and transprotation delays. Again the boat waits for no one!
