Cancellation and Weather Policy
Cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled reservation can be rescheduled. Cancellation requests made less than 48 hours before your scheduled reservation, will be charged a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the charter cost.
A cancellation on the day of the booking, (or a no show), will be charged the full amount of the Charter. When this happens, it means we have no opportunity to resell this time to another customer. Our season is short and we have a limited amount of time each day available to sell to our customers. As such, we must hold all clients responsible for the fees associated with the times they've booked, regardless of the reason for cancellation.
Oyster Bay Water Sports reserves the right to cancel, revise or postpone charters with or without notice due to scheduling, weather, equipment availability, or any other reason. We will make all attempts to reschedule.
Charters will be held, except where those days conditions are considered unsafe. We will postpone/cancel charters due to rain, lightning or high winds. Please understand that weather cancellations are solely at the discretion of our US Coast Guard licensed Captain. In the event of a weather related cancellation, we will reschedule your reservation on any of our available days.
Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation. Especially if its your first time chartering with us. We want to leave the dock on time or maybe a few minutes early to start your charter. If we leave late due to a clients late arrival - that time is lost. Late arrivals will be charged the full amount of reserved time; not just the time spent on the water. If you have questions or concerns regarding departure times, please contact us in advance.
If you are concerned about the weather as your booking approaches, please feel free to contact us to discuss what options may be available. Best initial method of contact will be via email - firstname.lastname@example.org or please Text 516-413-1930 and provide us with a call back tel #.
Prior to your charter all passengers must fill out our waiver, including those not participating in Water Sports. Those under 18 must have a parent or Guardian sign for them. https://waiver.smartwaiver.com/w/5f207154536f7/web/
