About Deep Sea Fishing Charters
Charter options are 4, 6, and 8 hours for 6 or less persons (no exceptions). Summertime dictates a long trip to be successful as the fish are further offshore and run times increase. A good rule of thumb is - Winter 4 and 6 hours.. - Summer 6 and 8 hours.
The boat is paid by your trip fare but does not include the tip for the mate who works very hard to get your fish to the boat when the bite is hot and to get you a drink or tell a joke when it's not. Also, your mate will be the one cleaning your catch at the end of the trip. Typical tip is 15- 20%.
Most deep sea fishing boats offer the clients bottled waters and ice with extra cooler space for your drinks and lunch. All of our deep sea fishing boats have bathrooms and shade. Some of our boats have A/C. please ask about A/C when booking if the heat is an issue.
