50% deposit required to secure reservations for charters and groups of 5 or more.

Reservation confirmation:  Credit card guarantees may be requested for all reservations at our discretion.  Credit cards used to guarantee reservations will NOT be charged as long as the reservation is honored; upon presentation at our shop of payment for any reservation(s) on the date of departure, the credit card guarantee will be terminated and no charge will be made to the credit card.  If, however, fewer than the number of reservations check in on the date of departure, the credit card used to guarantee the reservation will be charged for any reservations not honored unless other arrangements are made for payment of the reservations not honored.  Cancellation of or changes to reservations with credit card guarantees must be received at least 48 hours in advance AND MUST obtain a cancellation number.  Failure to cancel and obtain a cancellation number will result in a charge for any fares not cancelled which we are unable to fill.  

Private chartersA 50% deposit is required for private charters.  Charters must cancel no later than 10 days prior to the date of the trip for a full refund.  If cancelled with less than 10 days notice, no refund will be given unless your positions can be filled.  In the event weather causes the boat to cancel the trip, which is at the discretion of the captain of the vessel, deposits may either be reapplied to a future date or will be refunded in full.  

In the event weather prevents the boat from going, deposits may either be reapplied to a future date or refunded in full (less a 6% convenience fee for deposits paid by credit card).

Rod rentals, tackle and bait are not included in the price of the fare unless otherwise indicated. Rod rental, tackle and bait are available for rent/purchase prior to departure.  Please check for current prices.

California fishing licenses mandatory. One day and annual licenses are available for purchase at our shop.

Departure and return times are approximate.  We do the best we can to depart as scheduled, but departure may be delayed at times at the discretion of the crew.  Return time should be used as a general guide ONLY and may vary due to various factors, including but not limited to weather, conditions on a given day, fishing location or obtaining of boat limits.  When boat limits are obtained, in accordance with California Department of Fish and Game regulations, all fishing ceases and the boat will return to the dock regardless of how much fishing time took place or how early it may be.

"Boat Limit" fishing regulations apply at all times.  Detailed information regarding Boat Limits is available for review at Section 27.60 of the current California Department of Fish and Game Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations which may be obtained at:   https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/regulations.  

No guarantee.  As much as we want you to catch fish, there is no guarantee that you will.  We provide the service of taking you fishing...catching the fish is up to you and the fish!

"Farallon Islands" trips - when necessary, the captain reserves the right to fish coastal waters if the weather prevents us from making the trek offshore and, at his discretion, may adjust the price accordingly.

Should there be any substantial increase in the cost of diesel fuel, we may find it necessary to impose a fuel surcharge.
