Policies for The Gift

  • You must arrive 15 minutes before your cruise departs.
  • Reservations are very strongly recommended.
  • You may reserve the whole boat as a private charter for a half or full day and bring a maximum of 12 people. A 50% deposit is required for private charters. Some folks like to do this even with three or four people as there is no one aboard but your party. Sailing this way is great for family outings, employee recognition, team building, birthdays, anniversaries or any other special or romantic occasion!
  • We serve no food or drink, but you may bring whatever you like aboard. If you will be bringing wine, remember your plastic wine glasses.
  • It is wise to bring along a light jacket or sweatshirt; often it is much cooler on the water than ashore.
  • Parking in Perkins Cove is challenging, please allow plenty of time to find parking.
  • Sunscreen is a good idea, too, because on the water the sun is reflected back at you as well as beating down from above.
  • Don’t forget your camera!
