    We do have many people in wheelchairs come on our cruises, but we are not legally handicapped equipped due to having 3 decks that require the use of stairs. We have a ramp to board the boat and deckhands that can assist upon boarding. Passengers board on the mid deck area – the person in the wheelchair would be on the inside area on this deck. This deck is also where our beverage bar is located. Our bathrooms are located on the lowest deck, which require the use of stairs (the bathrooms are smaller as well and therefor not handicap accessible).


    What do I need to bring? Valid ID for boarding & purchasing alcoholic beverages. Binoculars & Camera. Cash or Credit for Food & Drinks. Dress weather appropriately. Low soled shoes.
