What to Wear:

Casual or Holiday Dressy, as you prefer.  We suggest that you bring a wrap, sweater, or warm coat layering for the Autumn/Winter time.  Oh, and a hat.  We LOVE hats!  Utilitarian or Fancy. Fun or Frivolous.  Modern or Historic.  Hats are certainly encouraged.

Where We Serve

We serve upstairs on the covered boat deck.  Or, in case of inclement weather, in our cozy Pilot House, downstairs in the Saloon, or in the Master Stateroom.

You’ll enjoy your tea table for 90 minutes and feel like you’ve lingered the afternoon away!
