What is your cancellation policy?
Reservations are non-refundable unless you purchase trip Insurance. Trip insurance allows you to cancel your upcoming tour for any reason up to 24 hours before the tour for a full refund. To purchase trip insurance, simply add on “Trip Insurance” during checkout. Without trip insurance, there are no refunds given for any reason. If there is severe weather the day of the cruise, we will attempt to reschedule you for another day/time or provide you with a store credit or refund. There are no refunds for behavior-related cancellations.
The Cuyahoga River is home to all kinds of traffic, including freighters. If we are on the river when a freighter comes through, the trip may be delayed until the freighter passes. We try to plan ahead but delays due to freighters and lift bridges are beyond our control.

No, smoking is not allowed on board. Cigarettes, cigars, e-cigs and marijuana are all prohibited. The crew reserves the right to return to the dock without refund if this rule is not followed.

Passengers must be 21+ for all public cruises. Passengers under the age of 21 are only allowed on private cruises. Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian while on board. Passengers under 21 count toward the 20 person maximum.
What is the minimum number of riders needed to operate the CLE Tiki Barge?
We need 8 guests per cruise in order to sail. If there are less than 8 guests confirmed for your date/time, we will call to let you know and will assist you with rescheduling your trip.
What if it is raining the day of my scheduled cruise?
The Tiki Barge runs rain or shine. A thatched roof covers the entire boat deck. If the Captain deems that severe weather conditions are dangerous, we will cancel the trip and reschedule you for another day or issue a store credit or refund.
