What if it rains?

If you can’t reschedule, your entire deposit will be refunded.  We’re constantly watching the weather, and will make sure that if a cancellation is necessary, it’s within the timeframe you’d need to cancel catering (if you’ve gone through Heron Yacht Charters for provisioning).

Can I bring a newborn?

Yup!  Heron was originally built for a family to sail around the world.  Her interior is extremely comfortable and safe, cool and shaded, with room to sit on the couch with the babe.  There’s a private stateroom available for nursing, and a perfect nook for the baby to nap within site while you relax on deck with the other guests.

Can I bring my 90 year old grandmother?

Absolutely!  The beauty of sailing on a catamaran is it’s completely stable.  Crew is always available and happy to assist in anything from boarding to maneuvering about the boat.  The captain can easily put Heron in irons (keep her at a standstill) to allow for more comfortable maneuverability when needed.

Is there a bathroom?

Of course! And there’s nothing complicated or scary about it.

Is there a place to change if we’re going to lunch somewhere?

Yes- there are 2 staterooms available for changing.

Can we play music onboard?

Always!  When you board, we’ll have our Heron soundtrack (Gotan Project on Pandora- an absolute favorite among guests), and you’re free to play any other station, or plug in your own phone/ipod.

Will I lose cellular service?  Is there WIFI onboard?

There’s no WIFI onboard because we won’t lose cellular service.

What do most people bring for provisions?

We’ve got options for every type of group, from kids to folks with special dietary needs and everything in between.  Chances are you know your group well, but please don’t hesitate to ask Shannon for recommendations and to see Heron’s AMAZING onboard menus before your sail.

Do we need to bring napkins, cutlery, etc?

No.  Just the actual food and drink.  Looky here.

 Is glass okay?

For wine and beer bottles, yes.  For drinking glasses, we have stemless wineglasses you’d swear were glass but are actually acrylic.
