If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids 5 years old and up are welcome aboard! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. It’s never a bad idea to bring snacks, drinks, sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen (non-spray). Alcohol is allowed in moderation. Avoid hard liquor and glass bottles.

You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is available, and you’ll be catching it yourself. Fuel is a separate charge on offshore trips.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. A 10–20% tip is customary to show your appreciation for their hard work. Your fishing license for the day is covered by the charter boat, so all you have to do is look forward to your trip!
