Where do I park?

Vehicle parking is available in the front parking lot of the marina off of Charles Ave. in front of the large blue building. You may enter the gates of the marina to drop off and return to the front parking lot. Parking is not permitted inside the marina gates!

What happens in the event of bad weather?

We will go out during light rain but not in dangerous conditions. In the event of inclement weather, we will try to reschedule you to a different time or day. If we are not able to reschedule a gift certificate will be issued for the amount of the tour and will be valid anytime in the future.

Is the $75 cost a per person charge?

Yes, the $75 cost is per person including state sales tax and fees. There is a maximum of 2 riders per boat. We reserve the right to run promotions from time-to-time which may change the price from $75 per person to a lower price.

Should we tip our tour guide?

Tips are appreciated if you enjoyed your experience. The amount is entirely up to you. Our philosophy is, "tip your tour guide, not your boat!

How old do you have to be to drive the CatBoat?

In order to operate a motorboat of ten (10) horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the FWC. Florida does not have a "boating license." If you were born prior to January 1, 1988 you may operate a boat in Florida without a Boating Safety Education I.D. Card but we highly recommend you complete the course and obtain your I.D. Card.

CatBoat Adventure Tours requires all boat operators to have a valid driver's license.

Are Pets Allowed?

We are able to accommodate very small pets that are comfortable riding in the lap of the passenger. The ride could be bumpy and subject to weather changes. You and your pet will get wet at some point. Only you know the temperment of your pet, we do not recommend bringing them along as conditions may change rapidly while out on the boat!

Are the boats safe?

The boats are designed not only for fun but with safety in mind.  These boats have high density foam pontoons making it virtually unsinkable.  Secondly, they turn in such a way as to never flip over.  All safety equipment is included and on-board each boat.  We teach first time boaters to navigate the boats with great success!

Our boats are all brand new CraigCats fresh off the factory floor. Our maintenance program is top notch ensuring the best possible mechanical conditions.

What should I bring?

Pack small! Small items such as sunscreen, phones, wallets and keys usually fit into the built in drybox on each boat. Some guests typically bring towels and place them on the seat. A bottle of water is provided but you are more than welcome to bring other drinks (non-alcoholic) and snacks as well! Beach attire is normally the best attire depending on the weather. Be sure to check the forecast/temperatures before heading out the door in case you may need a light jacket!
