We require $100 deposit for all trips at the time of booking which can be paid through our booking system or over the phone. The deposit is non-refundable but may be transferred to a new trip date during the current season if you find that you need to reschedule your trip. The remaining balance is due on the day of the trip. We accept cash, check or credit card. Also as a reminder, gratuity is not included for the mate, which is typically 15-20% of the trip.
What if the weather is bad?
If the weather is going to be dangerous or un-fishable, we will contact you to reschedule.
What is your cancellation and/or rescheduling policy?
If you need to reschedule your trip, please contact us to assist you with that. All deposits are non-refundable but may be transferred to a new date during the current season.
What do I need to bring with me on the boat?
Rods, reels and tackle are all on board the boat but you are welcome to bring your own if you would like. We strongly encourage you to bring a cooler aboard for food and drinks (no glass please) and to bring your catch home! Please check the weather before the trip but we do suggest bringing a warm, water resistant layer as the weather on the water is much different and wet conditions can arise at any time. Also, we recommend using something to combat motion sickness, regardless of previous experience on the water. Becoming seasick can ruin a wonderful day on the ocean!

Do I need a saltwater fishing license?
That won’t be necessary! The boat’s fishing license covers all paying customers.
Can we keep the fish we catch?
Yes of course! As long as they are within the size and bag regulations. We pride ourselves on providing the best quality fish for our clients. Your fish will be handled with the utmost care, iced and filleted or cleaned to your liking.
