Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Fishing Charter?

A fishing charter is a fishing trip run by an experienced captain along with additional crew members on a boat. The company provides boats and equipment needed to have a fun experience onboard. You set sail on the water for a set time with the expectations of catching a fish. Fishing Charters are rented at set prices depending on the time period, or they can be customised as per the unique needs of your group. You can choose from different packages on offer and pick the one that best suits your needs. 

With the local fishing experience, equipment on rent, and personalised services, fishing charters allow you to have a stress-free day for everyone to enjoy, especially when planning a group excursion. A fishing charter is perfect for people with all levels of fishing experiences and offers a far better experience than what a local boat rental may provide.

How Do Fishing Charters Work?

If you have never been on a fishing trip or are exploring this area, you might be wondering what to expect on your fishing charter.  Many first-timers do not know that the entire trip is not spent on just fishing. For the best experience, you need to be patient. The captain will boat out to a certain spot where you will have the best chance of catching fish. You’ll drop a few lines in the water and wait. The captain may take you to additional areas too to maximize your chances.

When you hook a fish, the captain and crew will help you with whatever you may need, such as extra strength to reel in a really big one. in some situations; you might have to cut the line and allow the fish to go. Our crew will get your rod ready for another attempt if it happens. 

Even though the main focus of charter is on fishing, it is the experience you make of it. We ensure you enjoy the warm sun and the sea breeze. The beauty of the vast ocean offers a sense of serenity that makes people want to go back into the water often.

What Should I Bring on a Fishing Charter?

We supply everything you need for a great fishing experience, such as fishing rods, bait, reels, tackle, and safety gear. You can bring personal items such as sunglasses, a hat, camera, sunscreen, wallet, and wear clothing and footwear that you are comfortable in. You are also free to bring your own fishing gear if you prefer. You can also bring some snacks and drinks to keep your strength up as even on cooler days; the sun can be quite exhausting. However, we can also arrange catering if needed. You are welcome to bring alcohol on the boat. However, it is important to be considerate of other people as our group is made of lots of people.
