Yes, everyone must be able to move about with a degree of balance, be able to squat/bend at the waist to enter and exit the cockpit area, be able to climb up and down a short ladder / steps into the salon area, and step aboard and off the vessel at the dock. When in doubt please give us a call and we can usually help clarify if there will be concerns with any of your abilities.
Yes, a waiver shall be completed for each excursion before boarding. A copy of the Waiver can be found on the bottom of the "Excursions" page. Reviewing it before arriving saves us time! If you have questions feel free to call 1-850-832-4952
Our Island Packet is very stable but it is still a boat in the water! If you know or if you even think that there is a chance of sea sickness please take the necessary precautions. Once we leave the dock we want to have fun and enjoy the day, don't be "that guy or girl"!
We love children, but due to the nature of sailing, the equipment aboard, and the systems throughout the vessel we do limit our young passengers to 12 years and older.
Absolutely! We would love to include you and really enjoy teaching as we go!
Yes! There is an enclosed bathroom and everyone will be instructed in its use when the need arises.
Good question. First, it is simply easier to conduct business this way. It’s less of a hassle for both of us. Second, just as you research charters before you spend your hard earned money, I qualify potential clients before ever booking the excursion. I talk with each person, gathering information getting to know you, your expectations, requests, etc… If at anytime I feel we would not be a good match spending time together on the water as friends I will simply recommend that you find another sailing service. Ultimately, I pick clients like you should pick your Captain, someone that is trust worthy and that you feel comfortable with. My clients take me at my word and I take them at theirs..
Cash please! If cash represents a problem, please let us know up front and we may be able to accommodate other methods.
Well like they say around Panama City, if you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes and it will change. Please do not decide to cancel an excursion without speaking to me first. The weather around Panama City can be tricky at best. Also remember our cockpit has a full enclosure that makes sailing comfortable in all conditions! With that said you can be assured that we would never put our clients in a dangerous situation.
