The US Coast Guard regulations for our tiki boats is 6 people plus crew. For larger groups, you may rent additional tikis and cruise together.
Yes children are allowed. We don’t want them to miss out cruisin on the tiki boat. Children under the age of 12 are required to wear a life jacket which we have on board or you can bring your own (recommended). Please let us know if you plan to bring children so that we can make the appropriate accommodations for life jackets. Uscg only allows 6 passengers per boat... Children are considered a person regardless of their age. This rule is not negotiable, sorry! We also recommend when bringing children on board to reserve a private charter... If small children become fussy it may ruin other passenger's experience.
The tiki boat has a cruising speed at around 4 to 6 mph.
All of our captains have been vetted and trained thru the US Coast Guard requirements.
All captains have been chosen based on their experience with boating and knowledge of the area. Check out the Captains section for bios about our crew.
