Terms and Conditions

Agreement

In consideration of any charter reservation, Estrellita Excursions, LLC agrees to reserve the vessel Estrellita and to contract captain and crew.

Fees and Rescheduling

Charter fees are considered earned once you place a hold on the desired date and time of your cruise. Charterer’s requests for rescheduling will be considered on a case by case basis and are subject to a rescheduling fee. The rescheduling fee is determined by the amount of prior notice given:

  • 7 or more days prior to cruise: $25
  • within 7 days of cruise: $100

Requests to reschedule within 24 hours or less from the start time of the cruise are not accepted and Charterer is responsible for full payment, regardless of whether the scheduled cruise occurs or not.

Cancellation by Captain

In the event of a cancellation by the Captain of the vessel due to severe weather, environmental conditions, unforeseen prohibitive events, or mechanical failure, the cruise will be rescheduled to a mutually agreeable date prior to December 31st of the current year at no additional charge. Severe weather is determined solely by the Captain of the vessel.

Cancellation By Guest

In the event of cancellation by the charter guest once paid in full, there will be a 50% refund. There is no refund for a cancellation within 24 hours of the scheduled charter. We are charged for each credit charge and refund. Also, your cancellation creates a loss for us when other charter guests have been turned away due to your booking. However, you may reschedule your charter with applicable fees, if you wish.
