|Do You require a deposit to book a date?|
|Yes a $100 per day per boat deposit is required to book and hold a reservation. This is fully refundable if there is bad weather on the day of your charter (captain’s discretion), or you must cancel 48 hours in advance. As Captain, I have the final say as to whether the trip will be canceled or postponed if the weather turns bad. There are many creeks and islands to hide from the wind should unexpected weather conditions arise, but high winds and lightning are always a sign to get off the water. If the weather is unfishable, your deposit will be refunded. If a trip is already underway, but is cut short due to inclement weather, the trip costs will be prorated.|
