Reservations are required to reserve your seat on the day of your choice. Please book by telephone.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT EVERYONE BE AT THE BOAT BY 7AM to check in with the Captain. By the time you check in, park, unload and board it is time to leave. The boat does NOT wait for those who show up or check in late or those who don’t check in at all after arrival. It takes time to park, unload and board, and it is not fair to those who are on time to wait for those who are not as it infringes on the trip time. NO EXCEPTIONS. Thank you for understanding.
You may sit where you wish on the vessel and change your position at will. Once the boat has stopped for fishing, the bow area is open for fishing as well as the main deck.
You may reserve the whole boat as a private charter for a half or full day and bring a maximum of 24 people. A 50% deposit is required for private charters. Some folks like to do this even with three or four people as there is no one aboard but your party. Fishing this way is great for family outings, employee recognition, team building, birthdays, anniversaries or any other special or romantic occasion!
We do allow those 21 and older to bring alcohol aboard to enjoy during your day. Our only rule is that you not become a danger to yourself or to others.
Our mate works for tips. 15% per person is the suggested gratuity for helping out all day at sea and cleaning, filleting and packaging fish for you.
Because we have a limited amount of seats to sell and a limited amount of days to fish in season, with days to fish dictated by the weather, we require 48 hours’ notice for cancellations on all open boat charter trips.
The 48-hour cancellation policy does not apply to private charters. At the time of private charter bookings, we require a non-refundable deposit of half the trip. This deposit holds the date for your party as we turn away potential customers on that date because you have secured it with your deposit. The deposit is our assurance.
The Captain reserves the right to cancel trips due to dangerous seas and that call is made the evening before for all charters. Weather forecasts can and do change, sometimes within a matter of hours. We do fish in the rain as we have a covered heated wheelhouse.
If the trip is canceled BY THE CAPTAIN, your deposit may be applied to another date or a refund will be given.
Thank you for understanding! We are a small business with rules that must be applied. We would not have a business if we did not have these rules in place!
