They usually begin boarding about 15 mintues prior to departure. We have cold drinks and snacks for sale onboard. We do not have any adult beverages, however you may bring a small cooler with some beers if you like.
No hard liquor allowed and keep in mind this is a family oriented boat. The Capt will have some easy listening radio station on while you fish ; it will be low as background music. Big loud radios are not permitted so bring your ear phones if you want to listen to your music. Bait, hooks, sinkers,and fishing license is all included. You may bring a rod and reel or you can rent one for $5 if you need to. Tickets available online or by phone or walk up. Don't forget to go into the tackle shop to get your boarding pass.
