Where exactly is the boat located?
For most of the operating season we are located in beautiful Stanley Bridge, Prince Edward Island. It's just a few minutes west of Cavendish. The water we operate in is the New London Bay, connecting rivers, and sometimes, when the conditions are just right, just off-shore outside of the bay.
Our slip is located in the brand-new Stanley Bridge marina.
Do you have Gift Cards?
We sure do!
Dogboat is your name but are dogs actually allowed?
Yes & No. Dogs are awesome. We love dogs. Our boat and company name is inspired by our dog (DogBoat/Gilbert/Gilboat....get it?). Well behaved dogs are welcome on all charters and private tour. Unfortunately dogs have to stay at home for the tours/cruises that are booked by the seat. For some reason, unbeknownst to us, not everyone likes dogs. We like to keep everyone happy.
What happens when my booking is canceled due to bad weather?
We live in the Maritimes. We sometimes have good blows and rain that come through during the summer months. In these cases we contact you as soon as we make the decision to cancel (by email, phone, or text message) and offer you the ability to reschedule or offer you a full refund. We do our best to make the best decisions we can. We are conservative in what weather we will operate in. We want to provide you with the most pleasurable and safe experience.
Do I tip the captain?
Tipping a captain is customary in the industry however it is not mandatory. It is a tip after all!
If you had a great tour and the captain provided you with excellent service a tip of 15-20% is the norm.
Is there a bathroom onboard?
Well... kind of! We have a marine head in a fully enclosed part of the boat. It is quite tiny. We recommend guests use the facilities on land before we get underway. If the need arises just know it's not a giant walk-in bathroom with heated tile floors :).
We also have a sink with fresh water for cleaning up. We also cary hand sanitizer and all of the other things you'd expect of a bathroom.
Are babies free?
Absolutely! In fact, children up to 3 years old are welcomed aboard free of charge. Please keep in mind that they do count towards the total passenger count.
