HOW FAST DOES THE TIKI BOAT GO?
The tiki boat has a cruising speed at around 4 to 6 mph.
WHO IS MY CAPTAIN?
All our Captains have been vetted and trained thru the U.S Coast Guard requirements.
All captains have been chosen based on their experience with boating and knowledge of the area. Check out "Our Crew" page for Bios about our crew.
WHAT ARE YOUR CANCELLATION AND INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICIES?
Bookings are non-refundable. We reserve the right to cancel any tour at any time due to weather, safety, mechanical or behavioral issues. If your tour is canceled, you will be given a rain check to re-book at another time (this excludes behavioral, along with alcohol related cancellations - these circumstances will never be rescheduled or refunded). For weather related issues, we may "wait out" a brief shower, reschedule for another day during your stay, or refund if unable to reschedule. "NO SHOWS" will NEVER be refunded or rescheduled!
DO YOUR BOATS OPERATE IN THE RAIN?
We do operate in the rain as the tiki boats have a roof. However, the captain can decide at anytime to cancel due to conditions (typically high winds or thunder storms). We operate under USCG's rules. The USCG does not advise going out if wind speeds exceed 20 knots. If you are unable to reschedule and still want to go on one of our cruises, the captains may under certain conditions can go out to cruise in calmer water which is protected by islands or mangroves.
SHOULD I TIP MY CAPTAIN?
Our Captains do work for tips, so gratuity is greatly appreciated. We suggest a 20% gratuity (on the regular price if using discount) for our captains... they are very experienced, knowledgeable, and work hard to ensure your safety and to provide an amazing tiki experience for our guests!
HOW LONG IS THE TOUR?
90 Minutes to 180 Minutes depending on the tour chosen.
WHAT CAN THE TIKI BOAT BE USED FOR?
Besides relaxing with a cold drink we can pretty much book anything you can imagine. From bachelorette and bachelor party’s, corporate meetings, birthday party’s, weddings... you name it and we will try to make it work.

CAN I PLAY MY OWN MUSIC ON BOARD?

WHAT ABOUT RESTROOMS?
