Wheelchair Accessibility: No

Cash bar available (simple mixed drinks, beer, wine, champagne, soft drinks).

If you have not checked in 10 minutes prior to the departure time, you risk losing your space on the boat. You must have a boarding pass with you in order to board. Please send MBS a sample voucher.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available.

According to our liquor license, we are not allowed to have customers bring their own alcoholic beverages on board the Shearwater.

If the mood strikes you to pack the old picnic basket, go right ahead!

Dress comfortably and prepare appropriately.

We sail rain or shine. Please keep in mind that it is usually cooler out on the water than on shore, especially in the evening and night.

We do ask that passengers wear soft-soled shoes aboard the Shearwater as heels and boots can scuff the deck. Bare feet are also fine.
