Charter Fishing Reservations Form
READ THIS: We answer every email. If you submit a request and do not hear from us within a few hours, check your SPAM folder. Often people send us a reservation via their company email and our reply gets rejected because of a firewall on their end. If you have a Gmail or Yahoo account, please use it in order to get a quick response from us.
Why we have you enter your credit card information online: Our entire website is on a secure server and your information is safe with us. Instead of taking your credit card information over the phone and writing it down in a book (where it can be lost or stolen), we ask that you enter your credit card number via our secure server. This protects you and your credit card information.
We are glad you have decided to give Distraction Charters an opportunity to serve you and earn your business. By now, you have settled in on the date or range of dates and are ready to book your trip. Before we can confirm your trip, we need to know some additional information so we can begin customizing your deep sea fishing trip for you.
We encourage you to fill out the form below, in its entirety (including credit card information via our secure server) and submit it only once. You should get an automated reply. If you don’t, do not worry – they come through on my email most of the time. By filling out the form completely, we move you to the top of the preferred list and you will be hearing back from us shortly. If you had rather hold off and find out if a date is available first, you can text message me at 251-975-8111 with your name, number of people and which date you want and I will respond as soon as I get in sight of land or in phone range. At that point, you need to come back to this form and submit it. Remember, just like a hotel reservation, we must have a credit card on file before we confirm any trip.
MUST READ – IMPORTANT – WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? After you submit your initial request, we check our availability and answer you back quickly, advising you if the date you want is available. If we have the date and time you want, we will ask you via email, if you want to confirm that date? If you say “YES,” the date and time is yours and will be confirmed by another followup email from us.
If for some reason, you do not hear from me within a few hours or a day, please check your spam folder and see if your reply is not there. You may also text me at 251.975.8111 and say that you have submitted a reservation request. Please include your name in the text, so I will know who’s reservation I am looking for.
Important Info About Trying To Hold Your Trip With A Credit Card – When you submit this form with your credit card information and we can’t arrange your trip, and your credit card information will be purged from our system.
Always Safe and Secure!
Disclaimers – Fishing is not an exact science and does not come without risk. There are hazards involved with fishing. There are moving waves, rocking boats, fish hooks, leads, doors that open and shut and obviously there are fish that can bite you, fin you, poke you, poop on you or have scales that can slice you. We do all we can to protect you, but your participation is VOLUNTARY and assume all risks involved. When you book a trip with us, it is implied that you understand the risks involved.
Depending on the time of the year you want to go fishing, some popular species like red snapper, triggerfish, amberjack and grouper may be out of season or available for harvest. If keeping any of these fish is a priority, it is your responsibility to book your trip when they are in season. Remember, we take people fishing who want to have fun, catch fish (but not keep everything they catch), for the experiences and enjoyment that fishing brings. If you catch fish that are out of season, we will still photograph you holding your catch and then safely release them.
