Boarding starts July 7th at 3:30-4:00pm and the departure is scheduled for between 4:00-4:30pm depending on customs check-in for our foreign vessels.
Day Sails are approximately 90 minutes in length.
With the exception of Day Sails, kids 4 and under do not require a ticket. ALL PASSENGERS on Day Sails require a ticket.
We encourage people to purchase tickets in advance so they can go directly to the ticket gate and not have to wait in line to purchase tickets first. There is NO guarantee that any certain type of ticket will be available at the gate for purchase. Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Patrons should plan accordingly. Day Sail tickets are popular and limited and have a tendency to sell-out well in advance of the actual event. Please plan accordingly.
No, there is not a ticket limit, but 10 is the maximum number of tickets available per transaction.
A ticket is for one person only and must be retained by that person. Tickets cannot be transferred to another individual.
