Bluewater’s policy is to neither make money, nor lose money on shipping and handling. Bluewater’s recommended shipping method, within the Continental United States, is FedEx Ground. Bluewater’s alternate shipping methods include FedEx 3 Day, FedEx 2 Day, FedEx Overnight, Express Mail (USPS), Priority Mail (USPS), and Media Mail (USPS). Please contact us for UPS or DHL methods. Any order sent by the United States Postal Service (USPS) will ship the following business day, once the order has been processed.
We cannot guarantee USPS shipping times. For any orders which include paper charts, or that are required quickly, we highly encourage you to choose a FedEx option for reliability and tracking tools.
Orders with “in stock” items will be shipped within one (1) business day. The shipping department is operational only Monday through Friday, and orders submitted after 3PM EST may not be processed until the next business day.
The graphic table below illustrates the estimated number of business days it will take for your order to reach you within the Continental U.S., if shipped by FedEx Ground.
Most FedEx shipments will safely reach their destinations within the number of days shown below, however time of day is not guaranteed. If you need guaranteed service, we recommend utilizing FedEx Express options.
For the sake of clarity, let us explain the numbers below (the shipping date is not counted in the estimate):
2 Days means an order shipped on Tuesday will most likely arrive on Thursday.
3 Days means an order shipped on Tuesday will most likely arrive on Friday.
2 Days shipped on Thursday will most likely arrive on Monday.
Please note that the days in transit count only as business days – that is, Monday through Friday, not counting holidays.
