Meeting Location

What Should I Bring

You are welcome to bring your own food and beverages from wherever you would like; however, off-site caterers are not allowed on premises. You may also bring CDs or a fully charged smart phone/iPod to use with our on-board stereo system or other approved entertainment. If you are planning on bringing anything that requires electricity, please consult with Capital Cruises staff beforehand as power capabilities vary depending on which boat you have reserved.

When To Arrive

For public cruises, check-in starts 30 minutes prior to departure. Reservations must be claimed no less than 15 minutes prior to departure, or they are no longer guaranteed, even if they are prepaid.


Unfortunately, there is very little free parking in the area. The Hyatt Regency does have a multi-level parking garage. Parking should be $5.00 per vehicle per hour in this garage. Public parking rates are subject to change due to local events. Capital Cruises is not responsible for parking charges.

Cancellations & Refunds

Prepaid reservations are non-refundable unless the reservation was canceled at least 72 hours in advance.
