Why Our Prices Are What They Are:
Due to damage caused by Hurricane Sally, our marina raised our slip rent/storage shed an additional $4,600 per year to cover their expenses caused by storm damage and in increase in their insurance costs. Because so many boats (not ours) were damaged by Hurricane Sally, our charter boat insurance provider doubled our premium and is now an additional $4,000 per year. Fuel went up $1.26 cents per gallon since January 2021. Since fuel is our largest expense, we have to budget for it or we can’t get you where you need to go to catch quality fish. Boats that don’t raise their prices to cover expenses, can’t maintain their vessels properly. They can’t keep their tackle in new or well maintained condition. Nor can they keep good employees or deckhands on staff.
How we are helping you save money and offer you value:
We don’t allow a broker to book our boat like most of all of our competitors do. Brokers take an additional 15% to 20% off the top. We also run our own boat. This saves 25% off the top. Captains that own and run their own boats have a vested interest in you having a better fishing trip.
Charters that don’t cover their unforeseen expenses, have to pay brokers and pay for hire captains, don’t have the revenue to give you their best. Their only solution is to pull back on the throttles in hopes of saving a few pennies on fuel. We don’t cut corners or play games with you. We know what it takes to give you our best and we give it.
We hope you will allow us to serve your family this year. We promise to do our best to give you the fishing charter you expect and deserve.
