Charter Information And Rates

How And When Do I Pay

Cash is always preferred but credit cards are gladly accepted. Checks accepted on case by case basis.  Please consult with captain prior to trip for check authorization. Payment is due to captain at the conclusion of your charter.

How Many Anglers Can I Bring

Maximum fishing occupancy is 4 (4th Angler add $75).  Bringing less will likely improve the angling quality in shallow water, especially when fishing mangroves or other tight structure. Rates below reflect x3 anglers.

Can I Bring Food And Drinks

Yes! Ice will be provided along with an onboard cooler.  It is recommended that you bring plenty of beverages and snacks/food if desired. Please do not bring large coolers onboard.  DO NOT BRING BANANAS, FOOD MADE WITH BANANAS OR BANANA BOAT PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND - because bananas are very bad luck on a boat.

Can We Stop For Lunch

Yes! There are plenty of great places close to the fishing grounds for a quick bite to eat.  Our top stop is Cabbage Key Restaurant, the famous waterside restaurant that Jimmy Buffet wrote the song Cheeseburgers in Paradise while staying there. Please let the Captain know during your reservation or the day of your charter if you want to build lunch into your trip. There are no additional fee's for lunch stops.

Do You Offer Nature Or Other Tours

Yes! We've done it all. Sunset, dolphin, nature, manatee, wine-tasting, burials at sea, real estate viewing/ocean soundings and many more types of tours.  I also ferry family's/groups over the Cayo Costa State Park for sightseeing adventures. Rates vary based on season, occupants, distance and time. 

Is It Customary To Tip The Captain Or Mate

Yes! For a great day on the water, tipping your Captain or Mate is typical.  Tipping keeps overall operating costs down and typically the mate works for tips only.  In the absence of a mate, the Captain usually is tipped.  When both are onboard and serving you, only the mate is traditionally tipped.
