CHARTER TRIP – CANCELLATION POLICY

 

This policy is in place out of respect for Miami by Sail and other clients. Cancellations with less than 48 hour notice are difficult to fill. By giving last minute notice or no notice at all, you prevent someone else from being able to schedule into that time slot.

 

1. All refunds are charged a 5% administrative fee

2. Trips may be canceled up to 7 days before sailing.

3. Between 7 days and 48 hours before sailing, we can work with you to reschedule the trip at a future time.

4. Cancellations of 48 hours or less will be charged full amount due, unless the trip is rescheduled for the same charter duration.

5. If MIAMI BY SAIL cancels the trip due to weather, we will work with you to reschedule your trip at a future time. If this is not an option we will issue a refund.

6. Lunch or the three course lunch/dinner must be paid in full 48 hours prior to the departure date and is not refundable once purchased.

7. In addition, Captain may cancel any charter without refund for any of the following reasons:

Passengers over intoxicated

Unconsciousness

Aggravation of previous injury

Illegal drug use

Unruly or reckless behavior

Criminal activity or violation of the local law and boating regulation

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation, consideration, and understanding.

You should expect that the tour may be shortened or delayed due to weather or factors beyond our control, we must respect Mother Nature and we will not put anyone in danger. We strongly recommend that you do not have any tight schedule right after the tour.

Many young children have sailed with us and loved it. However, you know your child better and what is best for him or her. Parents must keep a watchful eye on children at all times. We want all guests to have a fun and safe tour! If you have additional concerns about children on board, please contact us. Note that every child is included in the head count regardless of their age, as it is established in the MIAMI BY SAIL License.

MIAMI BY SAIL provides snacks; however, you are welcome to bring your own lunch if desired.

You can additionally request la light lunch, or a Three Course Prix Fixe menu which are booked separately from the actual charter.

MIAMI BY SAIL provides soft drinks, water, and ice. You may bring your preferred beverages, if desired. We do allow alcoholic beverages but should be drank with moderation and only by adults over 21.

Sorry, for safety reasons we do not allow pets aboard.

Wear seasonally appropriate clothing. For Sunset tours or during winter, it is always a good idea to dress with layers

The waters of Biscayne Bay are much protected and our boat usually sails smoothly throughout. However, if you think that you may get seasick, we suggest purchasing acupressure wrist bands available at most drug stores or ginger caplets which are an anti-nausea agent and are a natural alternative to Dramamine which can make you drowsy.

CHECK THE WEATHER FOR YOUR SAILING TRIP

moons

Photographing the last full Moon of 2016 was much fun because I had a pretty clear sky the whole night. I had an idea what to do with this shot so I think all played in my favor. This is how the Moon looks like when you enhance the colors of the surface. It has blue, cyan, purple and brown colors that represent the elements of titanium and iron on the surface of the Moon. It’s surely not a big grey ball on the sky :-)
