Worry-Free Weather Guarantee
Bad weather? No worries! If Captain Doug determines conditions are not safe for sailing when it’s time for your yacht experience, you will have the option to reschedule your sail or receive a full refund. We only sail if we believe it will be enjoyable for everyone on board.
What’s the weather typically like?
How do I dress for my sailing experience?
During the fall & winter months, warm jackets and layers are best, as it is cooler on the water. We have blankets and rain jackets onboard for guests to use when the weather gets chilly, rainy or if you just need a little extra comfort.
Be comfortable! Bare feet, sandals and/or tennis shoes are recommended. Please wear soft-soled, non-marking shoes. Leave your high heels, dress shoes and boots at home.
What happens if the weather sucks?
In New Orleans especially during the summer months, rain and thunderstorms are isolated and usually short lived. However, if it’s an actual weather system with potentially unsafe conditions, the captain will cancel at his discretion, and reschedules or refunds will be provided.
If the wind is light, we will motor sail. You can move around the boat freely in these conditions, taking it all in. We cruise regardless of the wind conditions, as long as it is safe to do so.
It’s not weather but …….What About COVID?
All sails are now private and contact-free. Your small party, plus the captain and sometimes a first mate, when needed.
Update March 2, 2022: The city discontinued the mask mandate indoors at most public facilities for those that are vaccinated. Therefore, a mask is no longer required if you are vaccinated. Captain and crew are fully vaccinated for Covid-19. We want all of our customers to be comfortable. Therefore, the Captain and crew will wear a mask if requested to do so. At this time, we aren’t asking guests for proof of vaccination.
