What's the cancellation policy?
We have a 5 day cancellation policy.
What if it rains?
We Do Not cancel for rain. When you monitor the local weather, it calls for a 30% chance of rain every day. A typical rain storm passes quickly here and our captains do their best to navigate around the weather. In the event we do have a major storm, Caribbean Alibi will make the call to reschedule or cancel and we will make that call always airing on the side of caution as safety is our #1 priority.
What is included on the boat?
Calico Jack comes with two coolers, snorkel gear for 10 people, and a custom, state of the art stereo system that connects using either Bluetooth or an aux cord for you to play your favorite tunes.
What should we bring?
Please bring sunscreen (cream only, not spray), towels, ice, snacks and any beverages you would like on your trip. We can stop for lunch at one of our famous local beach restaurants, so please bring money for lunch and souvenirs.
What should we not bring?
Please do not bring glass containers or spray sunscreen. Spray sunscreen will stain the boat.
Are fishing charters available?
Fishing trips are purely weather permitting. We do not book fishing trips more than 4 days in advance due to weather patterns changing. We want to make sure we take you offshore in safe conditions. Fishing trips are custom only, and additional fees may apply.
Do I need a passport?
You will need a passport to visit the British Virgin Islands from the US Virgin Islands. This will also incur a customs fee as well. This fee is $45 per person to enter the BVI and $5 per person to return to the US. Please bring this in cash if you plan to visit the BVIs as we have to clear into the BVI’s as well as back into the USVI’s upon our return.
What is included in the cost?
A day trip will cost $800, which includes the captain’s fee. We only hire the best captains which ultimately ensures we offer an amazing experience. Fuel is an additional cost and is calculated based on the trip. Alibi has a fuel reader on board, ensuring that we charge you accurately. Customs can be up to $70 per person if we visit the British Virgin Islands. Receipts will be provided for all customs fees.
What type of payments do you accept?
We take a credit card imprint to protect against cancellations, but full payment can be in cash or with a VISA or Mastercard credit card.
