Bad weather must be determined at departure time. If there is a light drizzle, it could be considered a soft day. If the rain is coming down sideways, it’s not likely that the boats will venture out. Feel free to call anytime and ask about current conditions. Rely on your favorite meteorologist for accurate forecasts..
Mates depend on tips for their income like a server in a restaurant. Usually tips are 20% of the value of the trip. Tipping the captain would be viewed as very gracious and exceptional, but not expected, unless the captain works without a mate.
There is a fish cleaning facility available at the dock. You may clean your catch yourself or ask your mate about fish cleaning.
Yes. How much? Be responsible, and above all, keep the good times rolling. If drinking creates safety issues, the trip could be terminated without refund.
Bring sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen and a camera, a light jacket as it could be cooler in the early morning and evening. You may also bring a cooler with your food and drinks.
No our boats have a blanket license that covers all passengers.
