Are there boats available to rent if I am not on a sponsored boat? No, sorry. We don't have any boats to rent out to the public.

Where are my donations going?

We have benefited a variety of military non-profits over the years. This year we are donating a majority of our proceeds to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. You can read more about this organization HERE.


I can’t come but I want to support this foundation. How do I do that? First of all, thank you for your generosity. As much as we would love every person who wants to support us join us at the event, we know it is not always possible. We have a special donations page for anyone wanting to offer their support from afar. You can check that out HERE.
