Cancellation Policy
Lighthouse Adventure Cruises are weather dependent excursions. In the event of hazardous or inclement conditions on the water, trips may be cancelled. Cruises will take place under moderate weather conditions (including light rain), but the captain or guide may cancel a cruise up to an hour before the start time of a cruise if conditions on the Chesapeake Bay are unsafe for small craft. In the event of a cancellation, the guide will notify participants using e-mail and phone information provided during the registration process. Registered participants will receive a refund and may re-register online for a future trip.
