Important Safety & Comfort Information
Fast Cat is unique, and as such, has special safety information that differs from our other vessels.
The suggested minimum age on private charters is 4 years old. If your child is younger than 4, please contact us to discuss.
Because of the high-speed and fun (but bumpy) ride, all passengers should be in good overall health. We do not allow anyone who has head, neck, or back injuries, is pregnant, or has any current problem that could be aggravated by this type of ride.
If you have disabilities, or are not able to meet any of these conditions, please consider a private boat rental aboard one of other vessels instead. Or, feel free to contact us to learn which boat will be best for your needs.
Safety is our priority. Fast Cat was the first U. S. Coast Guard inspected and certified RHIB (zodiac) in Orange County.
Due to Coast Guard regulations, the safety weight limit for each guest is 250 pounds, for up to 11 guests on your charter.
Fast Cat is very low to the water so you may encounter ocean spray. We suggest keeping electronics, camera equipment, and any other items you don’t want wet, stowed and secure while the boat is underway. You’re welcome to bring a GoPro, and to prevent loss or damage when filming underwater, please wait until after the boat has slowed down and your Captain gives the OK.
Fast Cat has ample cushioned seating for all passengers. However, space for stowing belongings is not available. If your charter has a large group, we suggest you do not bring over-sized bags or coolers. Waist-packs, mini backpacks, and small camera sling bags are great examples of what to carry your belongings in.
Because Fast Cat offers a fast and bouncy ride, plastic bottle beverages that can be closed and easy-to-eat dry snacks that won’t be swept away by the wind, such as granola bars or cookies, are recommended. To prevent spills please do not bring open cans of drinks.
Although there is no bathroom on Fast Cat, there are restroom facilities nearby on land that are available to use before boarding.
Capt. Dave’s Fast Cat has a very low center of gravity. For guests concerned about feeling seasick, this means the boat might feel more comfortable.
