Payments and Refunds
A deposit is required to reserve your charter. The remaining balance must be paid in full prior to departure of the dock on the day of your scheduled charter. If you cancel your charter within 7 days, a full deposit refund will be issued. If the charter is not canceled within 7 days or the passenger(s) are no call/no show on the day of, the deposit will be forfeited. Accepted forms of payment include cash, Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. No checks of any kind will be accepted.
The Captain reserves the right to cancel a fishing charter, at any time, due to unsafe weather conditions, as safety is always the highest priority. The Captain will always try to notify the passengers in a timely manner, but this may not always occur as desired. If a charter is canceled, due to unsafe weather conditions, the charter will be rescheduled for a later date. If, during an offshore charter, the weather or seas become unsafe, the Captain reserves the right to cancel the charter or downgrade to an inshore charter. If the passenger(s) request to end the charter early, the passenger(s) will still be required to pay full price of the charter.
