Yes! – We rely on tips to help keep the cost of our charters down. In addition it takes at least 8 hrs of preparation and planning for every charter. Please consider tipping at least the same 15% that you would at a restaurant. We give you an adventure and help you make some great memories!

Do I Need A Fishing License?

No, your saltwater fishing license is included with your charter.

Are Shared Charters Available?

No – Our customers charter with us because they want a private charter where they enjoy having the boat and the captain to themselves. This allows them to make changes to their charter if the fishing is great and they want to stay longer.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A: Yes, to reserve your charter we require a $100 deposit for each day booked. We cannot hold your charter date until we receive the deposit.

Can I Bring My Own Rod And Reel?

A: Yes you can bring your own fly rod and reel, but please remember that we will be providing you with top quality Rods and Reels. If you feel the need to bring your own gear, then you will need at least a 9 foot, 9 weight rod with a floating line.

Are There Restroom Facilities On The Boat?

A:   There are no restroom facilities on board, but there are bathrooms where we meet and drop you off. We also have access to private restrooms that are located around the areas we fish.

What Do You Supply?

A. We provide high quality rods and reels, both light tackle and fly fishing. We also supply all the lures, baits, and any other tackle needed including flies and leaders. We also include is ice cold bottled water, and a large cooler with ice for your personal beverages and snacks. We have a digital SLR camera to take high resolution photos of your catch. This is especially important on our Bonita Springs night fishing charters. It is very difficult to take good night fishing photos.

How Many People Can Go On A Fishing Charter?

A: On our fly fishing charters we allow a maximum of two people on board regardless of whether they are fishing or not. Having more than two people on a fly fishing charter would take away from the experience for our clients. It is OK for one of the fisherman to be using spinning gear.

What Things Should I Bring?

Sunscreen – Please no spray on sunscreen, it makes the deck slick. – Sunglasses with polarized lenses are preferred. Hat or visor really helps with the glare – Food or snacks there is room in the cooler for your food – Soft drinks we supply ice cold water water and a cooler for your drinks – A light jacket just in case we have a passing shower – NO BANANAS! (Remember to ask us why)

Can I Bring My Own Cooler?

A: No – We have plenty of room in our on-board cooler for your beverages. Remember that we have limited storage space and we won’t have room to store your cooler.
