Facts & Questions
* Where do we depart from?
We leave from a private marina- Two Georges Marina. (100 Old Ferry Road Shalimar, FL) Please arrive 5 min. prior to trip departure time. Departure times are subject to CHANGE. If you are unable arrive when Capt. requests (ex. 30 min early if needed) and cancel your trip, you will NOT receive your deposit back. If you arrive late, it will be taken out of your trip time. Trips begin at given departure time.
* What happens if a trip is canceled?
If you the client cancels the trip your deposit will NOT be returned but you may use it to reschedule a later date. If trip is canceled due to the captain or weather that is deemed unsafe by the captain (NOT rain-we fish in light rain showers) your deposit will be 100% refunded.
* What will I need to have to make my day better?
We suggest bringing along a small cooler filled with snacks/drinks. Sunblock (lotion) and sun protective clothing is highly recommended (sunglasses, long sleeve spf, hats, etc.). Please limit to only two carryon bags and a bag cooler or (at max) a 24qt hardshell cooler.
* Will our catch be cleaned after trip?
After your trip we will clean and bag your catch for you. We ask that you bring a small cooler with ice for after the trip to keep your fillets cold. * Any special request on filleting will require extra cost/tip to deckhand or Capt.
* What happens if I choose to cut my trip short?
Trips can be cut short due to sea sickness or (rarely) fear of being on big water. Once we depart the marina trips are to paid in full, even if cut short. You as the client reserve the hours for the trip and the captain makes his living due to it. If you choose to go back to the marina to let a member of your group off, it will be taken out of your fishing time.
* Are children allowed on trips?
Children of all ages are allowed to come as long as they are at least 30lbs in weight. We do not carry infant life jackets on board for a baby and due to center console boat infants can be hard to fish around as well. Outside of infants the captain loves having children aboard and recommends introducing them to saltwater fishing!
* What happens if we don't catch anything to bring home?
Our trips are not designed to insure you bring home fish to eat but we insure you will have a great time on the Gulf. Due to limit regulations in Florida it can be hard to bring back fish on every trip. *See our Targeted Fish tab to see what is in season during your trip. If you want to fill your freezer we recommend a local fish market. As a charter service we are equipped to take you into the gulf and put you on the fish- NOT catch the fish for you. Each person must be capable of catching their own fish in order to keep a limit. (Ex. Young kids, elderly, and ride-alongs) As we have a great reputation of bringing home catches, we cannot control mother nature nor your fishing skills. Listening to your Captain and crew is a great way to get the hang of it and reel in some fish.
*How many people can we bring on the boat?
5 people is the max number we are allowed on the boat.
* 15%-20% TIPS ARE CUSTOMARY TO CREW.*
(Tips are preferred in cash. Deckhands accept tips by venmo/paypal also. Just ask!)
All cards used will be charged a card processing fee.
