Stop at the local Kroger on 2935 Ridge Road,
Rockwall, TX (972) 771-8021
to purchasebeer or wine to bring on Seawolf.
Chandlers Landing Marina now sells beer, which you can purchase to be pre loaded on the either boat.
What about glass?
What if I get thirsty aboard Seawolf?
We offer complimentary, cold, water on Seawolf or Harbor Lights.
Can I bring food or snacks to enjoy?
You are welcome to bring a picnic basket. Finger foods work best. Think of it like a stand-up cocktail party. The ideal food to bring aboard Seawolf is anything that consists of a single-morsel bite. Skewers and toothpicks are scary. Chips in an open bowl blow away. If it is your desire to have a buffet, you might consider letting your guests "graze" without a plate. Suggestions: deli trays, half-size soda cans (wonderful!), tortilla roll-ups cut into bite-sized portions, single-serving sized sandwiches, cookies, doughnut holes, petit fours.
Is smoking allowed aboard the boat?
No, in consideration of other guests as well as the ash could burn the finish on the beautiful wood hulls of Seawolf.
Can I steer the boat and help sail?
We encourage our guests to get their picture taken while steering the boat! The crew loves it when guests pitch in and help to set sail. We give free sailing lessons while on the cruise. Just ask!
What about wheel chairs?
Standard wheelchairs and walkers are OK; motorized chairs are not (too heavy for the boat).
Do you have Life Jackets on board?
We have over 102 life-jackets on board. We have an assortment of infant, children, and youth life-jackets and over 50 adult jackets.

What kind of shoes should I wear?
Please wear shoes with soft rubber soles and low heels. If you wear high heels, leather soles, or muddy shoes, be ready to take them off as you board the boat. High heels are not good, because the boat wobbles in waves and you can break your ankle. Leather sole shoes are slippery and you can slip and fall.
Can I order catering for my cruise?
Yes, local restaurants around the lake will cater food to the boat. Remember, finger foods work best.
Are you going to charge my credit card when I make my reservation?
Yes, for private cruise reservations we charge a 50% and the time of the booking, Balance is due at the time of the cruise
For shared cruises, we charge your credit card at the time of the booking for the full amount..
Can I have a birthday party or wedding aboard the boat?
Yes! We welcome birthday parties for all ages. Please see our wedding page for more information about ceremonies and/or receptions aboard Seawolf. See "Weddings" at the bottom of the left hand column.
Can I decorate the Seawolf? No
Banners, signs, flowers, and anything that blows in the wind do not work very well. The beautiful wood boat and the excellent vista of the lake hardly needs any additional decorations. I have never seen a decoration that matches nature's creation of the water and the sky. If you want to add a festive feel try soap bubbles, plastic streamers on a stick, or other hand held toys.
Cakes by Rosalyn is an excellent choise for cakes for weddings or birthday parties, she knows what works and does not work on the boat.
As a special treat try Allure Restaurant at Chandlers Landing. As you leave the Harbor turn right on Summer Lee then right on Ridge Rd, then right on Henry Chandler Dr., drive to the Guard Shack, and tell then you are going to the Allure Restaurant. It has great food at reasonable prices, with a great view of the Lake.
