    If you do not see a trip listed on the calendar, it may have been removed for many reasons, such as weather or related issues.

  • Who is responsible for canceling a cruise?

    Nautical Mile Cruises works together as a team to make decisions such as trip cancellation. If your trip is canceled, Nautical Mile Cruises will contact you asap.


  • Do I have to make a reservation?

    Yes! If you do not purchase your tickets in advance, we can not guarantee that you will be able to board if the cruise you would like to attend is sold out.

    Booking in advance also lets us know that there will be people on the boat for the trip and gives us the information we need to prepare for the cruise you will be attending. It makes for a better experience if we are prepared for the number of people we will be carrying for the day.

    If you would like to pay in cash at the time of the trip, you can do so, but again we can not guarantee that you will get a spot on the cruise if the boat is already full from reservations.

  • Can I make a phone reservation?

    We ask that you use our online booking system on our calendar page to book any available cruises, but if you need assistance booking, please call 516-5446698.


  • What happens if it rains?

    The Captain is the only one to cancel a trip. If the weather is deemed unacceptable to sail depending on what boat your trip is scheduled to be on, you will be contacted and only refunded for your ticket if THE CAPTAIN or NAUTICAL MILE CRUISE cancels the trip. If you chose not to go because you think the weather might not be ideal, no refund would be given.

    $5.00 per ticket on groups of 10 people or more. The $5.00 off can not be combined with any other sales we are running or any other discount codes. To book a group of 10 or more for any of our scheduled cruises, please call 516-544-6698.
