Kids are more than welcome to join in, so feel free to bring them along as well. Both guests and the crew will keep the fish they catch. Of course, you’re free to return it to the water if you wish.

You’ll be provided with all the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures.  Feel free to bring any food and drinks of your choice.

There is no additional price for children age 0-1, however, they do count towards the total group size, which is a maximum of 6.
