• We collect the $50 deposit to reserve your date and time slot. This $50 deposit is
non-refundable unless the fishing trip is cancelled by the Captain due to bad weather
or unforeseen boat problems.This cancellation is made at the dock on the day of the
trip, only at the Captain's discretion. All other cancellations forfeit the $50 deposit.
• Our booking policy is to meet at the boat at the agreed time on the day of the trip.
If the fishing trip is cancelled by the Captain due to bad weather, we will try to
re-book your fishing trip for a better day if the customer’s schedule allows,
otherwise we will cheerfully refund your entire $50 deposit.
• Cancellations by customers with less than a 48-hour phone call notice and no shows
at the dock by customers on the day of the fishing trip will be charged to their
credit card the full amount of the length charter slot they have reserved. When you
reserve a fishing trip, we do not book anyone else for that time slot. No shows
leave the captain and deckhand standing at the fully set up boat wondering
where their charter is.
Offshore Trips (Deep Sea)
Our offshore charter boat does it's fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Our local waters are home to more than a few species of saltwater fish including grouper, snapper,amberjack, shark, cobia, kingfish, mackerel, tarpon & permit.
In the summer months, from April 1st - September-15 we are available to run 4-5 hour long Shark & Tarpon trips. These trips are very popular, the action is almost non stop on most trips. The Sharks rang in size from 10lb all the way up to 300lb with 150lb Sharks common. These trips run for the low price of just $100 per/person.
Our boat runs both full day & half day trips in the Gulf, usually from 8am to 5pm. The boat can carry up to six anglers in comfort and safety. She's the fastest charter in Placida, Florida, that means more fishing time for you & less riding time.
Charter rate is $1000.00 per day to hire the boat privately for your group, or $750 for the half day (six hours), or $200.00 per person on a split charter where you share the boat with other anglers.
Our half day trips are about 6 hours long and we try to make them as action packed as possible. These trips are only available to private party's and the cost is $750.00 for up to six anglers. This trip is highly recommended for the family vacation experience of a lifetime.
Our offshore boat the "Paradise" is also available for extended trip's out in the Gulf! 12, 18 , & even 36 hour.
