Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, each passenger must sign a waiver prior to boarding. Once you book your cruise, we will send you a link so you can complete this electronically. If you are booking for a group, the guest will need to forward this to each person in the group via text or email so they can complete and return it prior to boarding.
Our check-in process is touch free for enhanced safety precautions so paper waivers are not available.
Please make sure all passengers sign their electronic waiver prior to arrival to prevent any delays in your cruise time.
Where do you pick up passengers?

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 48 hours before the tour for a full refund. No refunds will be issued once the tour is completed.
To purchase trip insurance, simply add on “Trip Insurance” during checkout. Without trip insurance, there are no refunds given for any reason. Trip insurance covers the entire group as a whole. There are no refunds on a per person basis.
If there is severe weather the day of the cruise, we will try our best to reschedule, issue a store credit, or provide a refund if trip insurance is purchased.
There are absolutely 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.
Am I allowed to smoke on the boat?
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.
Are children and passengers under the age of 21 allowed on the Tiki Barge?
Passengers under the age of 21 are allowed on private cruises. Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian while on board. Passengers under 21 still count toward the maximum capacity allowed on each vessel. Please call us to indicate how many children will be in your party so that we have the correct amount of children’s PFD’s (life jackets) available.
Underage consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited.
What is the minimum number of riders needed to operate the CLE Tiki Barge?
For enhanced safety precautions, we no longer offer per person seating or public mixer groups. Our SMALL Group private tiki cruise option is for up to 10 people which is our minimum offering at this time.
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 may delay or cancel the trip. We will try our best to reschedule your trip, issue a store credit, or provide a refund if trip insurance is purchased.
