Can I drink alcohol aboard?
Yes, we do ask that glass containers not be used. Beer and white wine (No Red Wine) are preferred. Hard liquor is not allowed.
Is there a bathroom aboard?
While we do have a head (bathroom) on board, it is fairly small with very little headroom. You are always welcome to use it but we also recommend that you use the facilities ashore before we get underway.
Can I get seasick during a trip?
Our catamaran is very stable and few people get seasick. However, if you are prone to sea sickness, or have never been on a boat, it would be wise to take a sea sickness preventative at least one hour before the trip. Since you are chartering the entire boat its your call if you want to return early.
Is smoking permitted?
No, Allegro is a non smoking vessel. due to the inherent windy conditions and the flammability of sails, smoking is not permited. Vape and electronic cigarettes are permitted as long as there is no flame.
What may I not bring aboard?
Aerosol/spray sunscreens (which can make the deck slippery). Red Wine (will stain the decks if spilt). Any goods or articles of a flammable or dangerous nature, weapons, controlled or prohibited substances, illicit drugs, or any living creatures or plants.
