Will I get seasick?

We have never had anyone get seasick during a wedding on our boat as we usually do not encounter ocean swell conditions. However, there are over-the-counter medications available at your local pharmacy if you feel you may be especially susceptible to seasickness.

Is it possible for physically impaired people to access the dock?

We assist all passengers on and off the boat. It does require the ability to climb a few stairs up and a few stairs down into the boat.

Can I bring food and/or drinks aboard for the wedding?

A standard wedding service usually takes 2½ hours. There is time before or after the service for a glass of wine or a beer, and for food, if you wish to bring it. If you choose to extend your ceremony with a celebratory Bay Tour, you may want to bring a picnic to enjoy after the service.

Are there any other activities we should consider?

You might wish to celebrate your new status as newlyweds by adding a Bay Tour to your event. An extra 1-2 hours on the boat will allow your party to take a private cruise by the San Francisco waterfront, Alcatraz, and to travel around Angel Island. The calm waters behind Angel Island make it an ideal location for a picnic. The nearby gourmet grocery store, Mollie Stones (100 Harbor Drive, Sausalito, CA Tel:(415) 331-6900) offers excellent catering/take out options at reasonable prices.
