Charter Boat FAQs
How do I make a reservation?
Call 1-800-233-2080. A deposit is required. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card can be accepted over the phone. It's that easy!
What about coolers?
Bring an empty cooler and leave it in your car to take your fish home.
What about tackle?
All tackle is provided.
What about bait?
If you are trolling, you will be using artificial lures and there is no bait cost involved. If you are chumming or bottom fishing, bait is available at market price.
What about food?
We can arrange box lunches and beverages to be ready on the boat when you arrive for your trip. Orders are placed in advance. You are also welcome to bring your own.
How many people can I bring?
Each boat has a maximum number of passengers allowed by Coast Guard License. Observers, non-fisherman and children must be included in that number.
Should I charter a six-passenger boat or a boat that can carry over six people?
It's not important to know the exact number of people in the party at the time of booking. It is important to know whether there will be six or less, or more than six in your party. If you make a commitment to a six-passenger boat, that's a commitment not to bring more than six people.
