The staff of Tusket Island Tours often monitors several weather stations to best estimate the conditions of that day. Weather on the coast in not often easily estimated by simply watching the standard weather channel on television. Most days weather doesn’t pose any issues but if rain is forecasted we will call you and consult with you if you would like to reschedule, adjust the times around rain or brave the rain as we have ponchos aboard as well. As high winds can pose safety issues it is the solely captain’s decision if wind will cancel the tour. We do not take deposits prior to the tour, however we kindly ask that you leave the decision to cancel the tour due to weather with our knowledgeable captain. Cancelling at the last minute may negatively impact other customer’s booking.
