The Captains are generally busy fishing from 7am to 430 pm every day. We always return emails and phone calls at the first opportunity. We also text, sometimes texting is a faster method to ask quick questions.
If we are Offshore / Deep Sea Fishing we usually will reply to emails or call between 4 to 8 pm depending on the length of our trip that day.
OUR CANCELLATION POLICIES;
All Charters require a $248.40 Deposit taken by Credit Card which is Non Refundable, unless the Captain cancels your trip for weather reasons. We accept all major Credit Cards and also Cash payments, No Checks Please.
The Captain reserves the right to cancel any charter for any reason he deems necessary, normally this would occur in the event of inclement weather or a mechanical reason, in the event that the Captain cancels your trip, we will refund your deposit in full.
Guests must give TEN DAYS prior written (email) notice to the Captain, to cancel their reservation with no penalty other than the loss of Deposit.
