What if it rains?

Insurance and waiver of liability

We do not provide insurance for our guests, and recommend that you purchase your own insurance that covers deep sea fishing. By booking our charter, you and members of your group joining the trip hereby expressly agree to our Indemnity Agreement and Code of Conduct.

Can I bring my kids? What is the pricing for children?

Children are allowed on board. Pricing for children are the same as adults. Each child must be accompanied by one adult and supervised at all times (1 to 1 adult to child ratio) Each child age 12 and below are required to share a rod with an adult until the captain or crew sees that the child can handle the rod safely by himself

Will I get seasick?

You may get seasick if you are not used to being on boats. We recommend: - Purchase non-drowsy motion sickness pills from the local pharmacy, and take one tablet 20 minutes before the start of the trip and another pill 4 hours into the trip (or as advised by pharmacy) - Do NOT have a heavy / greasy / sugary meal before the trip starts. Have a light meal or snack instead - Onboard, it is better to stay on the deck with the breeze and looking far out, than staying inside the cabin. Face the same direction where the boat is going, rather than sideways or facing the back. It is the discrepency between what you see and expect to feel, versus the actual motion that causes motion sickness

Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs! However for safety reasons, we do not allow pets onboard

Are you open during Covid19? What measures are in place?

We are open!
