Rental Deposit Policy

If adverse weather conditions force us to cancel rentals, we will issue you a full refund, or reschedule your rental appointment. If you choose to cancel your reservation, and do so at least 7 full days before your rental day, we will try to re-book the boat. If we are able to do so, we will refund your rental fee, less a 15% handling fee. If you choose to cancel your reservation less than 7 days before your rental day, 50% of your rental fee will be retained. If you re-book (in the same season) we will apply your deposit to the new booking date.
