MIAMI BOOZE CRUISE
Terms of Service
All guests must be 21 years of age or older and possess a valid Government issued photo identification. Exceptions will not be made under any circumstance. Guests must possess a physical photo identification card. We receive an overwhelming number of inquiries each week from customers stating they have “lost their identification”
The guest is solely responsible to be able to provide valid identification. We are not responsible for guests who miss place or lose their identification. Refunds will not be issued if the customer cannot positively identify themselves.
Boats have maximum occupancy limitations which are set by the Coast Guard therefore it is extremely important for us to keep strict attendance.
Any modification to a pre-existing reservation such as a request to change the date or check in start time will incur a $30 charge plus tax. This charge applies to the booking as a whole and not per person. Reservation modification fees will be charged directly to the original payment method used when placing the pre-existing reservation only with prior consent of the card holder.
All activities involve risk. All guests named or not named on reservations, including participating party members are voluntarily engaging in this service. We are not responsible for any property loss, injury, bodily harm, accident or any other occurrence guests may incur while using this service. By participating in the service all guests and participating party members agree to not hold Miami blues cruise LLC accountable under any litigation. The ticket holder and all participating party members agree not to sue a promoter, participants, owners, managers or renters of premises used to conduct the event.
All guests reserve the right to cancel their reservation at any time for any reason however the deposit is nonrefundable. Deposits for canceled reservations are nonrefundable regardless of how far in advance the reservation is canceled. In the event of a canceled reservation the deposit is non refundable however guests are not responsible for paying the balance that is due at the dock on the reservation date. The only transactions that are made on a customers card are those initiated by the customer themselves when placing the reservation deposit. We do not charge the balance due to a customers card in the event of a canceled reservation however the deposit portion is nonrefundable.
This is a *RAIN OR SHINE EVENT. If it rains the boat will still set sail. Short thunderstorms are typical in south Florida. In the rare case that the weather conditions are too dangerous for the boat to set sail all reservations will be notified of any changes.
If the boat is officially canceled by the organizers refunds will not be issued, however guests will have the option to reschedule for the following date (If available) If spaces are not available or a guest will not be in town, guests only have the option to reschedule for a later date. Only if the boat is officially canceled will guests have the option to reschedule. If the boat sets sail and guests are a no-show reservation the option to reschedule is not void. Because we do not issue physical vouchers if the boat is officially canceled all reservations will have a notation made on them regarding credit to be used at a later date. To reschedule guests would have to contact us prior to a planned trip. We would then provide an available schedule for the desired date (granted it is available) only the deposit portion can be used for the deposit and cannot be used to pay the balance due in the event a guest reschedules for less people than originally reserved for. For the safety of the boat crew and guests due to mechanical problems or weather conditions the organizers reserve the right to set the itinerary, change the check in time or cancel the event.
Fraudulent use of tickets
We are not responsible for fraudulent use of our tickets or ticketing system. When placing a reservation our system generates an encrypted reservation number. Counterfeiting of our tickets is a punishable offense and would avoid any entrance to our event.
The organizers reserves the right to deny anyone service at any time for any reason. Do not buy tickets from anyone that posts a comment on social media claiming to have tickets at a discounted rate. This is fraud and we will not be responsible for tickets or transactions made elsewhere other than this official website of Miami Booze Cruise.
Our package pricing is always outlined on the package page.
We do not take payments in full. As specified on the package page there is a reservation deposit due at the time of placing the reservation, and the balance is paid at the check in location on the reservation date. The balance due must be paid in cash. The only exception to cash would be cash app. As with any transaction tax is added to the reservation deposit as well as the balance due at the dock on the reservation date.
All guests are required to sign our terms and conditions in order to complete the booking process. By using our site or placing a reservation all guests agree to these terms. Guests agree to these terms and conditions voluntarily and are under no circumstance required to complete a purchase. All reservation deposits are nonrefundable or transferable for any reason and will not be negotiated under any circumstance.

The reservation deposit is nonrefundable for canceled bookings regardless of how far in advance they are canceled. Deposits are nonrefundable for missing party members and cannot be used towards the balance due. Last minute arrival to the check and location may result in your spots being resold to standby reservations. If your spots are resold to standby reservations because of a late or last-minute arrival you will not be refunded. Refunds will not be issued in the event a guest is denied service due to intoxication.
We do not set the schedule. We do our best to keep our reservations calendar up-to-date. Our reservations calendar is updated in real time. Start times are always subject to change. In the event of a change in the check in start time refunds will not be issued. If there is any change in the check in start time all guests will be notified via text message as soon as this information is relayed to us from the captain. If there is a change in the check in start time reservations will be moved to the next available start time (if available) if the customer is unable to reschedule for the next available check in time a refund will not be issued and the customer would receive a credit for a later date.
As noted on the package page the check in process is an hour and a half long followed by the three hour boat party. The times on our reservations calendar reflect the check in start times. This is the time that it is recommended for guests to arrive. Arriving at the last minute may result in your spots being resold to standby reservations. If your spots are resold to stand by reservations you will not be refunded. We recommend all guests to plan ahead to arrive on time.
Our package page outlines a package description. Only what is mentioned on the package page is included in the package price. The boat does not stop for water sports, swimming or any other water activities. Guests are not allowed to jump off of the boat or get off of the boat during the three hour duration.
The boat is not a private rental. The boat and services mentioned or shared with other partygoers. Typical occupancy limitations of the boats used is anywhere between 80 and 100 guests.
The type of boat used is generally the one pictured on our website. The type of boat used is always subject to change depending on availability. All United States Coast Guard approved vessels undergo yearly inspections therefore if the boat pictured on our website is not used a replacement will be used. All boats that are used are United States Coast Guard approved and carry enough lifejackets on board for every passenger. The Captain carries credentials and is certified to charter a boat for hire under Coast Guard regulations. Although the boat may seem overcrowded the maximum occupancy of the boat is never exceeded under Coast Guard regulations.

Boarding the vessel is deemed valid consent to screening or inspection of persons, personal effects and any carry on items. Failure to consent or submit to screening or inspection will result in denial or revocation of authorization to board and no refund will be given.
In the past few years it has been brought to our attention that customers have been using our service, had services rendered to them then are contacting their financial institution to reverse the charges and make false claims of “fraudulent,” “do not recognize the charge” or “product not received” statements.
Certain identifying information is collected and retained during the booking process such as IP address and location when placing a reservation. Additionally any communication via email, text message or chat messages are retained indefinitely in order to present to any financial institution upon request of a reversal of charges. Other information and evidence could be and will be collected as evidence for any such case as it arises.
