Charter Cancellation Policy

*If canceling within 7 days of your reservation, you have the option to reschedule on another available date for a 10% rescheduling fee (for up to one year from the original reservation date) or you can cancel with a 25% cancellation fee.

*WEATHER CANCELLATIONS : Cancellations due to severe weather are determined on your rental day. We do not cancel due to weather forecasts. On the date of your reservation, the Port Captain will determine if we need to reschedule due to weather. In this event, you are eligible to reschedule for the next available date that works for your schedule at no cost to you. If the renter still would like to cancel or reschedule, our usual policies apply. Until this decision is made by the Port Captain, we request that you still come to the dock and prepare to have a wonderful time. It’s Texas, the weather changes quickly, so don’t panic.

Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen, towels, and child life jackets. However, if you forget something, don’t worry, the VIP Ship Store is well stocked with everything you need… and more.
