Frequently Asked Questions

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

Our standard cancellation policies do not apply to Fourth of July Fireworks Charters.  Reservations are nonrefundable except in the case of adverse weather canceling the fireworks themselves.  If guests are unable to reschedule in this case, a full refund will be offered.

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 at least 20 minutes before your scheduled departure time.  Leave yourself some margin for traffic or parking related delays, pre-departure bathroom stops, etc.  Private charters arriving late must still return at the regularly scheduled time.  There will be no refunds for those arriving late.  Trips are often scheduled multiple times per day and keeping a strict schedule ensures that all of our reservations are honored.

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.

May food and drinks be brought on board?

Yes, feel free to bring your own food and beverages.  All of our trips include complimentary bottled water.  Additionally, we recommend finger foods (small sandwiches, cheese and crackers, etc) as they are easiest to eat on a boat.  Foods with sauces will stain clothing and upholstery so are not recommended.  For adults over 21, reasonable amounts of beer and wine are also allowed (please avoid glass containers).  No hard liquor allowed.

Any excessive use of alcohol will result in the immediate termination of the trip with no recourse.

Will I get seasick?

The majority of our customers experience little to no symptoms of seasickness.  But whether it is your first charter or you are a seasoned pro, motion sickness is always possible on ocean­-going trips.  Fortunately, there are ways to proactively avoid the most common symptoms (dizziness, nausea, vomiting).

Prepare for your charter by being well rested and well hydrated.  Avoid alcohol and large amounts of caffeine until after your trip (including the night before).  During your charter do not lay down, read or play on your phone.  Stay active, breathe deeply and watch the horizon.  Convince yourself you are not seasick – focusing or dwelling on your anxieties will only make you feel worse.

Those with a history of motion sickness might consider one of the over the counter remedies or doctor prescribed medications currently on the market.  Please consult with your physician for suggestions.

Are there any age restrictions or physical restrictions?

There is no age minimum for our Private charters.  However, we do recommend that groups with very young children consider our Pleasant Bay Explorer tour instead.  Staying within Pleasant Bay reduces the chances of young kids experiencing motion sickness and it makes for a shorter trip back to our dock should the weather change.

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.
