On Watch runs on a tight schedule

  • Meet at the head of the dock at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled sail

  • IMPORTANT: Read the Navigation Notes in the next section!

  • Oldport is not affiliated with On Watch and does not have a public restroom. Please be patient and wait outside, we will come to you!
    • The waiting area has benches and is just below the Oldport Marine building’s porch. If you are early, relax on the lower deck in front of Oldport, leaving room for other customers to transit the area. Please wait for your captain and don’t get on any boats!
    • The launch service is a busy place without a public bathroom. They appreciate it if you keep questions to employees to a minimum and do not wait on the porch.
    • On Watch has your contact information and will be in touch should the crew be unable meet you 10-15 minutes before the trip.
    • Note: Running late may cut into overall length of your experience aboard Lyra or Wren. If you are early, there are many local establishments to check out while you wait.
