    We do require that you cancel prior to 30 days if you know already; however, we do understand that life happens and things come up. If your trip is cancelled 2 weeks before your trip date, you will not be able to reschedule with your deposit. If your trip is cancelled within 48 hours, you will be responsible for the cost of the entire trip plus tip.

    Your balance is due 24 hours prior to your trip if you are paying by credit card. If you are paying with cash, it will be collected the day of your trip.
  • What type of trips do you offer?
    We offer 10 hour offshore fishing charters out of Venice, LA. If you are interested in other fishing (inshore or bow fishing), we can assist with coordinating that for you as well.
  • How many anglers per boat?
    You are allowed 6 anglers per boat. This is 6 people max no matter if everyone is fishing or not.
  • What if our trip is cancelled due to weather conditions?
    Our office will contact you 2-3 days prior to your trip to confirm your reservation and to discuss weather. If your trip needs to be moved or rescheduled due to weather, you will have 1 year from the date of the original trip to reschedule. We will cancel if there are storms over the fishing grounds or any winds over 20 knots. This is not comfortable for anyone, and our ultimate goal for every trip is to keep our customers and ourselves safe at all times.
