Weather Policy

Our ultimate goal is to keep our customers safe.  To that end, Down Cape Charters & Boat Rentals will not operate in hazardous weather conditions such as heavy rain, thick fog or thunder and lightning.  On otherwise perfectly nice days, high winds (above 20 mph or so) can also sometimes keep us closed.

However, as weather can change quickly on Cape Cod, we will operate as usual during any portion of the day that we deem to be safe.  Overcast, cloudy and slightly foggy days are still considered safe.  No guarantees can be made that every portion of every day will be perfectly sunny.

If you have an existing reservation, please note that the final decision on weather-related cancellations always rests with the captain.  All 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.

Feel free to call us at 508-241-4070 if you have any questions.
