Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Karen, and the handsome guy to my right is Captain Scott. We are the owners, operators, designers, and builders of the TiKi Time, the first TiKi Hut Boat on the Northshore.
We're glad you're here!
See Salem Harbor with us! Your experience with us will last approximately 90 minutes from when we greet you at the Wharf until we arrive back at the dock after our cruise. There will be a brief Coast Guard required safety briefing and Covid-19 safety and social distancing guidelines before we get underway. Also, please try to have all passenger information available and entered into our system upon booking. Booking with all passengers listed acknowledges receipt of our policies and liability waiver ahead of time.
