Reservation Terms & Conditions
In case of inclement weather, or unforeseen circumstances. a gift certificate may be issued to allow passengers to join Sunset Kidd on a more appropriate sailing day. All cancellations are up to the discretion of the office manager.
Minimum Passenger Load:
Sunset Kidd offers cruises all year long, with numerous cruises offered on any given day. On each and any of these cruises Sunset Kidd requires four (4) passengers (This is the break-even point related to the cost of taking the boat out sailing). As we get into off season or mid-week, some of these bookings will fall short of this minimum. If this happens on your cruise, then at the hour of schedule departure... you can choose to pay the minimum amount (4 passenger rate) and enjoy the SUPER-LOW PRICE of what equals a PRIVATE CHARTER. Or receive a certificate to come out sailing with us on another day.
Online Booking Fee:
Online transactions are subject to a online booking fee of 2.19% of the total transaction plus an additional $0.10. The fee will be shown during checkout.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF RISKS:
I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily chosen to take part in Sunset Kidd's Sailing Excursion. I hereby understand that certain risks are inherent in any such adventure activity and cannot be fully eliminated, precluded, or controlled. I appreciate that these risks, some of which can contribute to the unique character and enjoyment of the activity, can also be the cause of injury, illness and death. I know and fully understand that a sailing excursion on any type of sailing vessel, as well as all associated activities such as but not limited to swimming, snorkeling and fishing, are outdoor adventure activities in an aquatic environment. The Pacific Ocean is still deemed a wild frontier with inherent risks and hazards where serious accidents can occur, participants can die, sustain injuries, become ill and damage to property may arise. These risks and hazards include, but are not limited to, (1) loss of control of the sailing vessel, falls overboard, slips or falls at any time while boarding, deboarding, or on-board, any injury or accident occurring while traveling in a dinghy/tender, collision with other vessels, docks, reefs, rocks and/or any other man-made or natural obstacles, whether obvious or not; (2) judgment, decision-making and professional conduct of the Captain (and/or First Mate, if one is present); (3) submersion in water, drowning, lung expansion or any other injuries associated with water sports and other water-related activities, including diving; (4) encounters with aquatic creatures, aquatic animals or other aquatic life.
