ABOUT YOUR PRIVATE CRUISE
What do you provide?
We provide two coolers full of ice, cups, plates, and utensils. Our vessel is BYO drinks, for guests 21+. Given the nature of a moving vessel canned and premixed drinks are recommended. Things like hard seltzers, champagne, and beer are great.
No outside food, please. Catering, from one of our listed partners, can be added to your cruise during checkout.
Changed your mind and want to add catering!? No problem! Email us with trip info and request. All requests must be made a minimum of 72 hrs. before your cruise.
Is there a bathroom on board?
Yes, we have a marine toilet located in our berth. Our bathroom is fully functional but a much different experience than a standard bathroom. Everyone must sit - yes, even men. There are standard bathrooms located at our pick-up location. We recommend using them before starting your trip.
What should I wear/what do I bring?
You and up to five of your family and friends are welcome aboard ARGONAUT. On the water, the temperatures are always a few degrees cooler, in the morning and at night, be sure to have an extra layer for those times. Our boat provides part shade but we recommend sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.
You look great in those stilettos, but on a dock or in a boat, they are a spike that will get stuck - not cute. Please wear flat sole, non-scuff shoes.
Our bow is perfect for sunbathing. On our 4 hr cruise we allow swimming. Bring your own towels. We recommend you come dressed in swimwear as our restroom cabin is small and makes changing difficult.
Is there parking available?
There is metered street parking on Columbus Blvd as well as garage parking in The Hilton Penns Landing located behind the main entrance of the building.
Uber and Lyft are always great options to avoid the hassle of parking.
What is your cancellation policy?
For cruises specifically, full refunds are offered with 8-day notice. No refund is offered with a notice of 7 days or less. No refunds for No Call/No Show and last-minute cancellations. We send multiple reminders and all updates via email, please be sure to check spam.
*For The Estuary event rental cancellation policy, please refer to your contract.
We do not go out in foul weather. If cancellations occur due to weather or extremely choppy conditions, we will reschedule or offer a credit for a future date - No refunds are offered for weather cancellations. We book on a limited schedule to allow for flexibility in rescheduling.
ARGONAUT follows all USCG and Federal laws. No Federally illegal substances are permitted. The Captain reserves the right to end the trip with no refund if someone becomes too intoxicated or if illegal substances are found.
What are your Covid 19 procedures?
Our clients safety and health are our top concern. Your Captain and First Mate are both vaccinated and will be following local guidelines.
We ask that if you or anyone from your party is feeling unwell you let us know in advance so that we can work together to reschedule. We sanitize and clean before and after each party. Mask are not required onboard.
Is 6 people really my max?
This is a hard yes, if you show up with more than 6 guests we will not push off. We are subject to Coast Guard regulations which state our boat capacity is a maximum of 6 guests. All guests must be 13 years of age or older.
There is a weight limit of 230 lbs. per individual guest. In case of emergency, all guests must be able to fit into our type-1 Coast Guard mandated life vest to board our vessel.
Our crew is willing to accommodate mobility impairments to the best of our abilities. However, our boat is not wheelchair accessible.
