We try to give our customers as much notice as possible, if it is necessary to cancel the trip due to bad weather conditions, the captain can make the decision at the dock. The captain reserves the right to cancel or modify any trip due to unforeseen conditions, this includes fishing for a different species of fish if necessary. If we find it necessary to cancel, every effort will be made to book your party on a comparable trip. If that is not possible, your money will be refunded in full. Prices are subject to change without notice. In the event of a substantial increase in fuel costs, a surcharge may be added to the cost of your trip.
