How many people can the boat hold?

We adhere to United States Coast Guard regulations and allow up to 6 guests at a time on the vessel. This ensures ample space for comfort and safety.

Certainly! We recommend ages 3 and up and will fit into a U.S.C.G. Approved life-vest.

In the state of Florida children under six (6) years old are required to wear a United States Coast Guard Approved PFD while underway on any vessel less than 26 feet. Children older than 6 are not required to wear a PFD, however we highly recommend they do so. We supply U.S.C.G. approved PFD’ for each child and each adult passenger. Should Captain Dom have any doubt about the safety of you and / or your child or other children, he will require a PFD be worn regardless of age. Safety is our number one priority!
