TRIP PREP

Your day on the water needs proper planning and preparation. Here are a few items you will NOT need to plan to bring:

  1. Your own boat – You will be fishing from our 35’ Donzi Boat fully equipped with all tackle and bait and experienced sea captain of 30 years in Florida
  2. Ice – There is ice at the dock for your convenience
  3. Money for parking – Parking at our dock is free of charge
  4. Fishing License – All aboard our boat are covered with our vessels fishing license
  5. Cleaning Gear – Your sea captain will filet and pack your catches of the day

Here are a few items you may consider bringing along:

  1. A cooler with goodies – 4 hours on the water will surely need a snack and a cold beverage (ice provided)
  2. Polarized Sunglasses – Not only to save your eyes, but also makes for the best vision on the water
  3. Hat, Sunscreen and Lip Balm – The sun in South Florida is why we are here, but it also is powerful all year long and even on an overcast day
  4. Boating Shoes or White Sneakers – Please no black soled sneakers or shoes
  5. Camera or Video Device – To record your day and show off your catches
  6. Change of clothes and rain gear – It is always good to be prepared, and we do have a few sets of rain gear on the boat.

If you have concern about Seasickness, we recommend that you take a seasick pill the night before the trip, just before retiring, and then ½ dose early the morning of the charter, or just apply a seasick patch the night before. Please get a good night sleep.

BAD WEATHER POLICY: Based on the weather conditions, primarily the wind, If the captain deems it unsafe, we will not be fishing that day. We would contact you the day before if the captain determines it unsafe. If it is unsafe to go out, there is the option of fishing in the Inter Coastal Waters for Large Tarpon and Barracuda.
