Make Reservations/Purchase Gift Certificates

To make reservations please click on desired tour date below. If the date is not available please call to be placed on a wait list. During the spring and fall we offer fewer trips. However, as those fill up, we will add additional dates. So, call us if you don't see your desired date. The arrow located at the top right corner of the calendar will advance the month. 

Tickets for the Shelling and Lighthouse Cruise are $38.00 per Adult & $30.00 per Child (all children under 90 lbs. including infants)  plus a $1.00 per ticket online reservation fee. All reservations are purchased online in advance (MasterCard and Visa only). You can do it or we can do it for you. The site is secure, it is simply replicated to look like our website. Because we are using online reservation software the $1.00 per ticket reservation fee applies either way. Purchasing tickets together does not ensure seating together for your family or group. However, we will try our best to make it happen so show up 30 minutes early.

We do not accept cash at the ticket kiosk.


If you did not receive your confirmation email (check your junk mail for, please call us (do not Email [it will probably go into our junk folder and we won't see it], Text message, or Facebook message us) and we will resend it. Our address, a map with directions, parking info, and what you need  to bring are listed on you confirmation email, along with other important things you need to know before arriving.

During the hottest months of the summer, we discourage guests from bringing infants and babies to ride. Four hours, in our opinion, is too long for infants, babies, and small children to be outside in the open air of the boat and island. Dehydration and heat stroke can occur quickly. 

Check-in is at our ticket kiosk 30 minutes before departure. (If departure is at 1:00, you need to be here at 12:30.) Please be considerate of other passengers by checking in on time (30 minutes before departure).

Cancellations and Rescheduling: Due to the boat capacity cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance (48 hours for groups of 6 or more tickets), which gives us the opportunity to offer your seats to other guests wanting to ride (72 hours for holiday cruises). There will be a 10% service fee plus your reservation fee for cancellations, no exceptions. Changes or cancellations received within 24 hours before departure (48 hours for groups of 6 or more tickets) are subject to 100% penalty (if we are not able to sell your tickets to someone else, which we can frequently do).  There is a $1.00 per ticket on-line reservation fee to reschedule, sorry. No refunds or credits will be issued if you are late and miss the boat! - See more at our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) page:

Cancellations via text message, email, Facebook messenger, or left on our voicemail will not be accepted. If an emergency arises and you need to cancel (even partial reservations) please call and we will do our best to sell your tickets to someone else (allowing us to refund your ticket purchase less fees). We frequently have a stand-by list wanting tickets.
