Each suburban has a 6 seat passenger capacity.
Can I reserve a private tour?
Yes, a private daily or sunset tour can be arranged. The price would be determined on a car of 6. So if you reserve 2 spots, you would also be responsible for the remaining 4 too.

No, all ages are welcomed for our Daily and Sunset Tours. There are seat belts in all the vehicles.
For our Dune and Water Tours, children must be 6 years or older.
Are pets allowed on the tour?
Unfortunately pets are not allowed on our tour, due to the small space in the vehicle and other customers’ allergies.
Will the tours still run if its raining?
Our daily 1-hour tour goes out rain or shine. Our vehicles are covered, so the weather does not affect the tour. In fact, it’s a great way to spend and hour in the rain. The meal portion of our sunset tour will not be served in inclement weather.
What should we bring/wear?
We travel in a covered vehicle, so anything you’re comfortable wearing is fine. You should make sure your bring a camera, we stop at a wonderful picture taking spot.
Are there restrooms on the tour?
We have one very small restroom in our office for your use. But it can get very busy. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND using the public restrooms by the main parking lot located around the corner from our office. There are no restrooms out in the dunes.

The usual gratuity is between 10%-20% or whatever you feel comfortable with giving.
