Frequently Asked Questions

What if I need to cancel my reservation? What if there is bad weather?

For cancellations made 48 hours or more in advance a full refund will be issued.  Cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance will be charged 50%.  No-shows and cancellations made less than 3 hrs before the trip will be charged full price.  We regret that we cannot make exceptions for personal emergencies as a cause for late cancellation.

We will not operate in hazardous weather conditions such as heavy rain, thick fog, high winds or thunder and lightning.  However, no guarantees can be made that every day will be perfectly sunny.  So we will operate as usual in overcast conditions, light fog and in intermittent sprinkles.  The final decision on weather related cancellations rests with us and reservations should be considered upheld unless you speak with us directly over the phone.  If weather cancels your reservation we will make every effort to reschedule for another day.  Otherwise, a full refund will be issued.  If weather cuts your trip short, we will prorate the unused portion.

All refunds will be at the sole discretion of Down Cape Charters & Boat Rentals, Inc.

How early should I show up for my reservation?

To leave enough time for our check-­in procedure, we recommend your party arrive 15-20 minutes before your scheduled departure time.  Leave yourself some margin for traffic or parking related delays, pre-departure bathroom stops, etc.  Group tours will leave at the regularly scheduled departure time – no exceptions!

What should I wear? What should I bring?

The only things you need for your charter are a form of payment and your personal items (snacks, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen – preferably not the spray kind, camera).  It is always a little cooler on the water so a windbreaker or sweatshirt might come in handy.  Please wear boat shoes or non-scuffing white-soled sneakers.

For Shark Alley Tours, we highly recommend polarized sunglasses!

May food and drinks be brought on board?

All of our group tours include complimentary bottled water.  Additionally, customers are welcome to bring small amounts of food and beverages from home.  Please remember that these are group tours – so leave the party platters at home!

If bringing food, we recommend finger foods (small sandwiches, cheese and crackers, etc) as they are easiest to eat on a boat.

On our Group Sunset Cruise, adults over 21 may bring small amounts of beer and wine.  Please minimize glass containers.  No hard liquor allowed.

Are there any age restrictions or physical restrictions?

There is no age minimum for our group charters.  However, we do recommend that groups with very young children consider a Private tour instead as they offer more flexibility.

Those with mobility issues must be able to walk down the resort dock (which has ramps) and step up into the vessel.  Very rarely is this an issue, but it should be mentioned.  Our team will assist in any way they can to ensure those with mobility issues are comfortable.

Do you provide life jackets for children?

Yes, we have life jackets for all shapes and sizes (even infants).  While we recommend that everybody wear a life jacket on our boats, by law only those 12 and younger have to wear one at all times.  Your boat will have enough life jackets on board for everybody in your group.  Younger children are welcome to bring their own life jacket if they are more comfortable, provided it is Coast Guard approved (no arm floaties).

Do children and infants count towards passenger capacity?

Yes.  The United States Coast Guard does not differentiate between children and adults in determining our maximum capacity.  Everybody counts.

Are pets allowed on your charters?

We currently do not allow pets on any our vessels.
