No, there is no age limit. We do not recommend children under 6 for the Friday and Saturday sunset or evening cruises unless it is a private party. These are romantic evenings when our guests are often celebrating an anniversary or special occasion. Children sitting quietly and are well-behaved are always welcomed on any cruise.

Is there a discount for military, children or seniors?

Yes, we have children pricing on the Daytime Cruises. For all other cruises they are full price.

Can I have a private party on the boat?

 We do not offer private party pricing. The only way to have a private party on Seawolf is to buy all 49 of the individual tickets. I would point out that you do not need to rent out the whole restaurant to have a party, you can have an area on the boat for your group to gather around tables even if there are others on the boat.

If you want a private party, I recommend DFWboatride.com. I built that double decker party boat for private party events, and sold it to a couple who do a great job for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events etc.

What about trays of food?

Yes, we have up to eight 4 x 2 foot table on which to put deli trays on Seawolf.

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 Seawolf! The crew loves it when guests pitch in and help to set sail. 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 life-jackets on board. We have an assortment of 100 children, and adult life 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, 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 small birthday celebrations, proposals, bridal parties,  but for big parties and wedding events we recommend Harbor Lights, which you can book at dfwboatride.com

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.
