Q:

I see an expiration date in September. Is it possible to extend if guests arrive after that date? They are planning a trip here but dont have a date certain.

A:

We do our best to accommodate all of our customers on a case-by-case basis. If for some reason you were unable to use the Groupon by the expiration date, you would need to contact us by phone or email regarding a possible extension.

Q:

How much does it generally cost to refuel one of your 17' boats?

James C.  asked on  May 26, 2013

A:

The amount of fuel used varies based on how the boat is used, i.e., fishing vs cruising. We see an average of 2-6 gallons but have seen it higher.

Q:

Is the training free? Does it happen the same day we go boating or do we need to do it before? Will 17 feet boat fit 5 adults and 3 children (7, 4 and 3 years old)? Thanks

Elena G.  asked on  May 26, 2013

A:

At the time of your rental, we go over basics of the boat and the waterways and take the driver out into the channel for further instruction. This is part of the rental and provided at no additional cost. Please visit our website for information regarding the state's Boater Safety and Fishing License requirements http://www.icsharks.com/BoatRentalsHome.html that may or may not be applicable. No, the 17' Whalers will not accommodate 8 people. Only our deck boat would accommadate that group.

Q:

Is it possible to fit 2 kids and 4 adults on a 17" Whaler? Thanks

Becky C.  asked on  May 24, 2013

A:

If the children are younger (not teens) then, yes, we do a have a 17' that would likely comfortably work for 4 adults and 2 kids. When calling to make a reservation, our crew members will ask the # of people in your group so that they can book the right boat. Please indicate 2 of the 6 are children.

Q:

Is gas the only other extra charge? No extra fees for insurance etc?

danny w.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

Renters are responsible for a $200 refundable deposit, sales tax (7%) and payment for fuel used. There are no additional insurance requirements or rental fees/taxes. If applicable, any damages to the boat will be taken from the deposit. We do offer items for rent and/or sale (i.e., bait, tackle, rods, etc) that would be additional.

Q:

Can dogs boat with you and do you provide fishing equipment?

vicki k.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

Well-behaved and properly-leashed dogs are always allowed - and usually have more fun than the people! (make sure to bring water and a bowl for them to stay hydrated) We offer fishing equipment for rent but it is not included with the boat rental. When making a reservation, you can indicate that you would like to rent the equipment.

Q:

How many people does at 15" vs a 17"fit? I am considering buying this as a gift. also, if I select a Saturday would it be $99?

Audra A.  asked on  May 23, 2013

Each boat is configured differently. Depending on the boat and configuration, the 15s comfortably seat up to 4 people and the 17s seat up to 5 people. A 15' Whaler would be $99 for Saturday; the 17' Whaler would be $125.
