Fuel Surcharge:

A Fuel Surcharge (FSC) is a fair way to pass on unforeseen costs to a business to consumers.  This is long and very common fee in the transportation industry.  When we set our price at the beginning of each year, we try and be fair.  This year, fuel was $2.42 a gallon.  Since the price of fuel fluctuates on a daily basis, the fairest way for us to not lose money is to add a fuel surcharge.  On the day of your trip, we will look at the price of fuel on our marina pump and then add the amount below to your trip base price.  If fuel comes below $2.99 per gallon, there will be no fuel surcharge.   Many fishing charters along the coast have always charged a boat fee, plus fuel.  A fuel surcharge is the fairest way to pass on this fluctuating costs.   Businesses who don’t charge a FSC, don’t have enough revenue to stay in business.

Pump price $5.00 to $6.50 or higher per gallon is additional $100 FSC.

Pump Price $4.00 to $4.99 is $50 additional.

Pump Price $3.00 to $3.99 is $25 additional FSC.

Paying For Your Fishing Trip:

Paying For Your Trip:  Because we don’t take deposits, you are expected to pay for the trip in its entirety on the day of the trip.   Please bring your form of payment (credit card or cash) with you to the boat on the day of your fishing charter.  (You can pay with a different card than you reserved the trip with).   Remember, you will need to have cash only for the deckhand and pay him separately – after the trip.  You may tip him on top of his fee if you like and he does a good job for you.

Tipping The Captain:  Tipping the captain is not necessary, but is always appreciated.

Cancellations:   You can cancel up to 8 days in advance with no penalty.  Within 7 days, you will owe 50% of the price of the trip, plus deckhand fee.   You must send cancellation notice in writing via email and I must respond to you before your trip is canceled.

COVID19 – We are sorry if someone in your group comes down with or tests positive for covid 19.  However, this is something out of everyone’s control and is serious.  We reserve the right to charge you the full amount of your trip if you cancel/test positive within 8 days of your trip and are unable to go fishing on your scheduled date.   We are not jerks but this is how we feed our family.  We will do all we can to try and re book your date.  If we are successful in finding someone to take your place, you will not be asked to honor your commitment.
