You've got questions and we want you to be prepared for a fun cruise on the river!
Is it Safe? Safety is first on Ducky Baby Charters. A licensed Captain will be your guide. The boat is DNR inspected and approved with lifejackets and safety equipment above and beyond USCG requirements. The boat itself was specifically selected for its stability. The Captain will give a brief safety meeting before you leave the dock and answer any additional questions.
How many passengers? The maximum allowed is 6 passengers. The boat is rated for 12 but for your comfort and safety, 6 is the magic number. All ages are welcome for a river tour. If you choose to include a SUP stand up Paddle board excursion, it is 16 and older. Life preservers are required when on SUP boards. If you have kids under 16 in your party, please call the day before with sizes for life preservers.
Will weather be a factor? We are constantly monitoring the weather and will cancel if conditions are threatening. A shower in the forecast may not cancel an outing. The Captain will make the final determination.
What should we bring? Bring whatever you are drinking. Please, no glass. Snacks are welcome. You will need to provide your own ice, cups, utensils. There is no smoking and no vaping allowed on the boat. You may consider bringing binoculars, sunscreen, wide brim hat, sunglasses, and appropriate dress for the weather. There is a stereo on board. Bring your playlist and link to our Bluetooth!
Is there a bathroom? There is no head onboard. There is a porta potti at the dock and any cruises over 2 hours will be making a pit stop for bathroom relief and smoke breaks if you so desire.
What is the cancellation policy? You will put a deposit of half down when you book online. On the day of your cruise, you will be charged the balance. The deposit is non-refundable. If you need to cancel or if your trip is cancelled due to weather, acts of God, safety concerns, or mechanical issues, you will have a full year from your booking date to reschedule. We will make every effort to get you on the boat!
Can I go swimming off the boat? You may not swim off the boat. If you jump off the boat into the river, the cruise ends immediately and there may be a $100 fine applied to the booking credit card.
Please call Captain Julie direct at 734-546-6000 with any additional questions or concerns. We are service oriented and are focused on exceeding your expectations!
