How many people can we take for the posted price?
Depending on the specific trip, up to six. You are not required to bring six but the price does not change for smaller groups. If you have a large group, we can arrange for a second boat whose rates are very similar to ours.
What must we bring?
Other than personal items you need only to bring food and drinks for your group.
Can I purchase a single ticket to fish on board Fin Chaser?
Unfortunately, no. You must reserve the entire boat. However, we occasionally offer “make-up” trips so email us and we’ll add your name to the call list.
Must I pay for the trip when making my reservation?
All that is required to reserve a day is a small deposit which can be made with Visa, Mastercard or Discover.
Must I purchase a fishing license?
All required licenses will be provided by the boat.
Can we keep our catch?
Absolutely, as long we stay within the legal size and bag limits.
Is someone available to clean our catch?
Yes. The marina has a professional fish cleaner who will process your catch for a small fee.
What is your cancellation policy?
In order to receive a full refund of your deposit, cancellations must be made at least 45 days in advance of the reserved date.
What happens in the event of bad weather?
If, due to inclement weather as determined by the captain the morning of your trip, we cannot sail on your date, you will receive a full refund of your deposit. Inclement weather is considered to be: high winds or rough seas.
What happens if our intended species just isn’t biting?
We will do everything possible to catch the species you’re looking for. However, if fishing is slow for that species, we will offer you other more productive options. We DO NOT cancel trips because of slow fishing or weather that may hinder us from getting out to the canyons but that does allow us to fish closer to the beach.
