F.A.Q

How do I make a reservation?

All reservations must be made on our website with a credit card deposit.

Available boat tour times will show when you pick a date on Boat 1, or Boat 2, or Sunset Cruise.

Each of our catamarans has a separate scheduler.

If you want our longer 4 hour tour, please reserve 2 consecutive 2hr timeslots on one boat.

If you have a party larger then 6, we can accommodate groups up to 12, please reserve both Boat 1 and Boat 2 during the same time slot. 

What do I wear?

Depends on the weather: Think of what you wear when you go to the beach:

Like shorts and tees, swimwear and cover up, towel or wind breaker.

You may want to lounge or sunbathe on the trampoline.

Bring sandals you feel comfortable getting wet along with a hat and sunglasses!

On cooler days bring a windbreaker or jacket.

* Also Please try to apply sunscreen before boarding the boat. *

Arrive 10-15 minutes early so you are ready when your Catamaran arrives.

Can we swim or bring snorkel Gear?

Yes, we stop at island beach’s where it is usually perfect for swimming.

You can bring your snorkel gear you can swim around the island beaches where we stop to shell.

Marco Island is not known for clear water it depends on the weather and sea conditions.

But sometimes the water is clear and calm. Of course always be carful and aware of your surroundings when swimming.

What if it rains?

We do not want to be out in bad weather or rainy conditions either.

We do our best to avoid bad weather conditions at all times. We follow the weather forecast and track the radar.

 So if we cancel the tour for bad or rainy we try to reschedule or just refund the reservation deposit.

Do I need to bring food/supplies?

You may bring any food or beverages you wish, but we do provide complimentary refreshments.

Beverages include a wide selection of diet and regular sodas and bottled water. Snacks include chips, crackers and pretzels etc.

Of course, you are also welcome to bring your own cooler.

You are allowed to bring alcoholic 🍾beverages on the boat. Of course We ask people drink responsibly. 

*We have all sizes of life jackets and provide shell bags.*

Can I bring a fishing pole?

Yes, you may bring along a fishing pole and tackle to fish from the beaches where we stop to explore and shell.

Please make sure you have a current Florida fishing license.

Motion or sea sickness?

Sea sickness is not common on our tours, but if you have concerns please make your captain aware.

How many people are on the charter?

All our tours are “Private” for up to 6 of only your group per catamaran

 Coast Guard regulations allow each boat to take up to 6 passengers plus the captain and crew.

Off The Hook Adventures can accommodate parties up to 12 with both of our Marco Island sailing catamarans

Can I show up without reservations?

Off The Hook Adventures charters require advanced reservations. Please make an online reservation to schedule your charter.

We may be able to accommodate same day reservations, however, it is best to reserve online in advance.

 You may send a text message for possible daily availability to 239-571-4665.

Is there a bathroom on the boat?

We recommend using the facilities at the marina before your charter.

There is a small marine toilet located in the hull of each of our sailing catamarans, but it is not a full bathroom.

Does the tour go to the “Domes Home” ?

We do our best to accommodate based on weather conditions. However, we rarely go to the dome homes on our 2 hour tour. Our longer 4 hour (double boat tour time slot) charters are recommended, which usually allows more time to for a relaxed sail to island hop toward the “Dome Homes.”

Can we celebrate a special occasion aboard Off The Hook Adventures?

Yes, Off The Hook Adventures is happy to help you celebrate special occasions like birthdays, engagements, and small wedding parties.

We even offer Official and legal small wedding ceremonies by Captain Corey as authorized by the Governor of the sate of Florida for a Notarized wedding license.

Only an additional $100 dollar service charge on your private sailing catamaran  boat tour.

( please leave a voice mail or text message  if interested in this original and authentic boat tour upgrade.)

 CHARTER INFORMATION:

  • Please arrive to the marina 10-15 minutes before scheduled departure time to allow time to find parking and prepare for your tour. This is a great time to apply sunscreen and use the restroom facilities at the marina, so you are ready when your sail boat arrives to the docks.

  • The catamaran sail boat will be arriving to the marina docks for the charter 5-15 minutes before your scheduled tour start time. When you see the catamaran boat pull into the docks you are welcome to go on down to meet the captain.

  • Off The Hook Adventures’ Sailing Catamarans provide a comfortable seating arrangement with cushioned bench seating, a soft trampoline deck for lounging and a shaded back deck.  So you can make yourself comfortable when you get on board
