Terms and Conditions
will do everything in our power for you to have a great time on your fishing excursion, but we do have some rules. Some are
general rules for your safety and others protect our boat, our equipment, and our crews. Our charters all operate under our
complete Terms and Conditions of Your Charter. The following is a brief review of that agreement.

conduct by the Charter party.
2. 1 to 6 people per charter plus crew. Children are welcome but count against the
charter party limit.
3. No illegal substances or firearms are permitted on board. Discovery of the presence and/or
use of illegal substances and/or firearms will immediately terminate the Charter without refund and the vessel will return
4. When you reserve a charter date, it is your Charter date if the Captain determines that the date is fishable.
It is your responsibility to arrange your party unless otherwise agreed in writing.
5. The Captain, owner and crew
shall not be held liable for any injury or fatality that is caused by either direct or indirect action of any member of the
6. A cancellation called by the Captain due to weather or mechanical problems will create either
a deposit credited toward another Charter date or you may request a refund. A trip terminated by the Captain due to the weather
once fishing has commenced will not be entitled to a refund if the Charter party agreed to leave the dock. A trip terminated
due to member(s) of the Charter party getting seasick will not be entitled to a refund or credit.
7. If you don't
show up at the dock the day of your Charter, you will forfeit your deposit. If you show up late and not ready to leave at

NO guarantees concerning how many or what type of fish you and your party will catch. We do guarantee that the equipment is
in proper repair and that our professional crew will do everything in its power to give you and your party a wonderful fishing
experience. The sport is called “Fishing” not “Catching”. There are days when we catch more fish than
other days and there are many conditions that govern catching success. Not in the least of those conditions are the abilities
of the anglers in your party. Listening and following suggestions and directions from the crew will increase the likelihood
of catching fish especially after fish have been hooked. It is possible that your charter date might not produce many keeper
fish. If your mate(s) work hard to try everything they know to attract strikes/fish, they have earned their tip(15-20%) of
the cost of the charter. Please base your treatment of our mate(s) on their performance and work ethic and not how many fish
you take home.
11. The owner, crew, and our insurance company prohibit liquor and any beverages in glass bottles
on board the boat. Beer will be limited to not more than two (2) six packs per person who drinks beer for full day or overnight
trips. In the event that members of your Charter party become intoxicated to the point that the crew determines that they
create a hazard to themselves or others, the Charter will be immediately terminated without refund and the boat will return

the dock prior to leaving on your trip.

to your trip to discuss recent catches, catch locations, the weather, sea conditions, etc.
