Fishing Charter Booking Information
We offer 1/2, 3/4, and Full Day Flat Fishing Charters in Biscayne Bay, Everglades National Park, and The Florida Keys. On special requests can do Sunset and Evening Trips. A 1/2 Day Trip will last 4 hours, a 3/4 Day Trip will last 6 hours, and a Full Day Trip will last 8 hours. Trip times can differ depending on your schedule. Sometimes we may suggest to leave at a different time to make the fishing more productive due to weather or tide conditions.
Failure to show for a scheduled charter requires full payment for the scheduled charter. When a charter is scheduled, the captain allots the full day to that charter. If the anglers are a “no show”, the captain loses that day of fishing. The captain also must turn away others when that day is booked. There is no possibility of rescheduling that day when there is a “no show”. When anglers are a “no show”, the captain requires full payment to compensate for the lost day, and also as a means to prevent “no shows”. However, with proper notice of the cancellation, the charter may be cancelled and the deposit may be refunded. The notice of cancellation must be provided within 14 days of the charter. Weather is a constant consideration for cancellation of a charter. If your charter is cancelled due to weather, your deposit will be held for a later date. The captain is the only one who can cancel due to weather. Having too much to drink the night before is not grounds for cancellation. However, with proper notice, the captain may be able to modify the time the charter sets out in the morning.
Discounts For Those Who Serve
Captain Rich Smith comes from a long line of family members that have served in the armed forces. So as a way of saying thanks he will award discounted rates to all military personnel. Police officers and Firefighters also qualify for these discounts as well. So at the time of booking let your captain know so he may make proper arrangements.
