What should I wear?
Typical San Diego weather is nice, so dress accordingly. It is always a good idea to bring a sweatshirt or jacket just in case you need it. You are cruising in the comfort of a classic Duffy Electric Boat that is completely enclosed, so on San Diego's rare cooler days or on a Sunset Cruise it's not a problem. You'll be cozy and warm; Knot-a-Yacht...Yet has heaters. Please wear tennis shoes or deck shoes, but no dark leather-soled shoes (they leave black marks on the boat.) Bring sun block, hat and sunglasses for your daytime cruise.
How many people can we bring?
Knot-a-Yacht...Yet is rated for 11 adults, but we limit our cruise to 6 passengers. When you make your reservations, be sure to tell us about your party.
How long is the cruise?
Depending on the cruise package that you choose, the cruise is generally one and a half hours and up to four hours long.
What about boat motion or rough water?
There is little sensation of movement on our Duffy Boat with it's max. speed of 5 knots that should not cause any discomfort.
What about bad weather?
Our electric boat is completely enclosed with nearly invisible windows, and is quite comfortable in cooler weather. Of Course we would reschedule your cruise if the weather becomes too stormy or uncomfortable.
Are there life jackets on board?
