FAQ - Do you sell alcohol on board the Kraken? Are you a licensed venue?

We are not licensed to sell alcohol. However Kraken Adventures and the vessel MV Kraken is a private charter vessel operation. When you commission the vessel as a private venue for you and your guests, you have the right to expect and enjoy the privileges associated with that privacy. We do not allow any other people on board but your guests. Much like renting a vacation condo or booking a hotel room - you have the lawful right to bring and consume alcohol (responsibly) on board the Kraken. Although we do not sell alcohol, we do occasionally provide complimentary alcoholic beverages such as a welcome Kraken Rum Punch or provide a bottle of wine or champagne for special events. More details on the rules and regulations including conduct of passengers can be found in our charter agreement.

FAQ - How long are the Excursions?

That's totally up to you. We can build an adventure based on your needs. That said the vessel typically books for 3, 5 and 8 hour tours.  For example a sunset cruise or specialty charter (such as ash disbursement) would be based on a 3 hour short cruise, a themed excursion like the Namasea, is a half day (5 hour) trip, and a full day outing is 8 hours. Everything however is subject to how you want to customize your experience. For more information on our trips, visit our 'RATE' page or contact us directly for specific details or additional questions you might have.

 

FAQ - Are kids welcome?

We love to introduce the ocean environment to the younger generations, however for safety reasons the vessel is not suitable for kids under the age of 12.
