Do NOT waste your time. Boat is gone. NO answer when called. WEB site is up but no reply from email. Jacks and Better have a reputation on shutting its doors, without warning leaving its customers high and dry.

I would recommend a reservation just to be sure, but you could possibly walk on if the boat isn't full. It would depend on how far you have to drive to get on the boat.
