( IF I SENT YOU THIS LINK AFTER BOOKING A CHARTER, PLEASE READ EVERYTHING! If you have further questions, please contact me via text and I will be happy help!
I have a first mate that always joins me on my trips named Gizmo, a small shitz sue who is possibly the coolest dog you will ever meet. If you have an issue with really cool small dogs or anyone in your party is, please let me know prior to our trip!
*Your trip begins at agreed start time and ends on agreed end time. If you are late getting to the pick up location to board boat, additional time will not be added and trip fee will remain the same. *(This is important because 4hr trips are my most popular trips- I typically run 2 trips a day- especially in season, 10-2pm & 2:30-6:30pm. I also have my children every other week and need to get them from school by 3:30! With that being said, a lot of times I am unable to extend trips if you are late arriving to me. If you are late and want more time, please don’t hesitate to ask me if this is possible! Also, even if you are late and want to extend your trip with me, please ask on our trip! I am more then happy to extend your trip if I can!)* If Captain has ability to add additional time for an additional fee, arrangements can be made. Captain Kristina is always on time and arrives at least 15 mins or more prior to each trip to the pick up location. Please allow yourself enough transport time. (below you will find pick up location)
$100 Deposit can be transferred to another day if you reschedule trip. Deposit is NOT refundable once trip is booked. Balance of the trip, minus deposit is due in cash day of trip. If Captain cancels trip due to weather, deposit can then ONLY be refunded in this case or used for a trip on a later date. As a local, we are able to judge summer showers and weather forecast more accurately then out of town guests. Decision is made morning of trip as our weather forecast changes often. IF YOU CANCEL YOUR CHARTER LESS THEN 48 HOURS PRIOR, AS A COURTESY TO YOUR CAPTAIN AND THEIR INABILITY WITH SUCH SHORT NOTICE TO RE-BOOK YOUR SPOT, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR YOUR TRIP IN FULL.

Pick Up Location: PLEASE: I very HIGHLY suggest taking an UBER to meet me at our pick up location- daily IN SEASON. December through June mostly. (ask me in advance for my opinion if you would like as I am often at pick-up location to see how busy it has been) In season here & also on the weekends, parking tends to be absolutely insane at our pick up location. Not only is it nice to not have to worry about parking your vehicle, you can also enjoy your adult beverages on our trip and know everyone will get back home safely! If you do choose to drive, if it is IN SEASON or a WEEKEND, someone in your party may be stuck having to drive the vehicle quite a ways down from where my boat will be & have to walk back. Then after being in the sun all day and possibly drinking, someone will have to walk all the way back to get the vehicle! *if you choose to drive, I also suggest everyone take one vehicle if possible.* * just some helpful tips* (don't say I didn't warn you lol)
LOCATION: BayView Boat Ramp Danford Street Naples, Fl 34113 (to the end) *if you google- "Bayview Boat Ramp" you can navigate from there*
IMPORTANT PARKING DETAILS *Once you reach the end of Danford Street, circle around and look for a parking space by reading signs located in spaces as some are for trailers. If they are full around the circle please park along the side of Danford street. I will be waiting at the docks next to where you see boats being launched into the water. Look for my TEAL Bimini Top I always suggest circling around to the docks first, dropping off your party and belongings at the dock, then sending one person to park. (Bathrooms are in the little building in the middle if needed prior to departure) note: Parking around the circle is difficult on a Saturday or Sunday
I do not trailer my boat, I travel to pick up all of my guests from my private marina in downtown Naples. I always arrive by water.
There is a store next to our pick up location on the water I can drive you over too if for any reason you forget alcohol, snacks, drinks, sunscreen, sun shirts, glasses etc.
*private home dock available depending on location*
(they are friends of mine so I try to always check in with them & their schedule so it is possible it may change as things settle after Hurricane Ian)
**ATTENTION** I do not run the food boat... there are times where tides, boat problems or unforeseen personal issues come up and they may not be out. Please always bring snacks and food just in case.

TOUR TIPS TO CONSIDER WHEN BOOKING:
When booking a tour, it is your own private trip. The boat will only have your guests. I do not leave you alone and I am there to take care of everything during our time together. I will set up chairs and umbrella, provide you drinks & food from cooler while at the beach, and your belongings will be safe on the boat.
4hr trips are best for younger children.
I am able to accommodate larger groups over 6 by coordinating a jet ski (available for morning trips only) or coordinating another boat.
Start times are 10am and 2:30pm. Trips cannot begin any later to insure a pleasant day at the island and finding a nice spot.
If booking a full day trip, start time is able to be adjusted.
*The vessel does not include a bathroom. Please use the restroom at the pick up location prior to parking. The island does not have bathrooms so we live the island way when we are out there and use the Gulf of Mexico or bushes!*
Monday to Friday the Island tends to be much slower.
Saturday, Sunday & Holiday weekends, expect there to be a lot of boats and people.
