    • Excessive consumption of alcohol can amplify the inherent risks associated with fishing and can also contribute to seasickness.

    • Standard bait is included unless otherwise specified

    • All children must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian at all times and parents should be aware of the inherent risks associated with fishing
    • Please let your captain know ahead of time if there will be small children on board so he can make sure we have the proper size life jackets.

    • We typically release all species that are inedible (sailfish, sharks, etc.) unless you request otherwise. If you would like to "mount your catch" as a trophy our crew has been profesionally trained to measure and photograph the fish so a taxidermist can create an exact replica. This allows the fish to survive and contributes to sustainable fisheries and environmental conservation.

    • We will provide the exact address of the boat with your confirmation or upon request

    • Our boats are usually within a 30 minute drive of the city they are listed on; however, sometimes they are not in the same city.

    Maximum Passengers

    • Due to US Coast Guard regulations most charter boats are limited to a maximum of six passengers. Many of our boats are large enough to accomodate many more, but Federal regulations limit us to six.
    • In some locations we offer an "Over 6" option on boats that have a special permit from the Coast Guard to take additional passengers. These boats have similar ammenities to our other sport fishing boats.
    • Some of our yacht charters can take over six passengers by using a special charter contract that allows them to accomodate extra passengers while still complying witht the law. Please contact us for more information.
    • Children of any age count towards the limit.
    • Crew members do not count towards the limit.
