FAQ's

Question:

Can the Rosemarie pick up my guests from my deep water home in Discovery Bay?

Answer:

We cruise in the rain, wind, and sometimes in light fog provided it is safe to do so. 

During the rainy months the Rosemarie is fully enclosed both down below and on the top deck. Their are also heaters on the Rosemarie during the winter months to make it very comfortable. If the fog prevents safe navigation in the area in the area we would be cruising the cruise would be cancelled and you would be issued a full refund. Since 2012, we have only had to cancel 3 cruises, 2 of which were due to unhealthy air conditions from the Paradise Campfire in December, 2018.​​
