WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
We supply all your fishing tackle, licenses, bait, coolers and ice. You just need to bring your own food and drinks. Guam's sun is maipe (hot) so don't forget sunscreen and a hat. Oh, and if theres a chance you get seasick or motion sickness, pills for that would be best! Lastly, Pls find our waiver form, complete and bring to dock upon arriving. (Don't worry, printed forms are available if you don't have access to a computer or printer)
IS ALCOHOL CONSIDERED DRINKS? ;)
No hard liquor is allowed on the boat. We want you to have fun and if you want to have a few beers, that’s fine. But please remember it’s a fishing trip, not a drinking trip. Captain’s orders overrule ALL policies of the company when at sea.
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN'T BRING ON THE BOAT?
Well, everyone knows you never bring "BANANAS" on a fisherman's boat, because of Bad Luck superstitions! =) But on a more serious note: We ask that you don’t bring glass containers on the boat. Bottled beers sometimes fall and glass is potentially dangerous. Please bring cans and plastics only. Also, No Pets and/or Smoking.
WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT?
Children 5 years and older. Call Capt Kin if you want to check on the sea conditions for kids.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I BE AT THE DOCK?
We're on your time. Ideally 10-15 mins to settle in before departure, but otherwise you can show up 30 mins earlier or right at scheduled time, its on you!
HOW MUCH OF THE CATCH CAN I KEEP?
It all varies on the day. If theres fish to be caught, rest assure the captain will divide it evenly between you (the group) and the captain. However, its fishing and not catching. Your purpose to come out should be for the experience!
IS THE BOAT SAFE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY?
Yes, the Captain is federally licensed by the United States Coast Guard to take passengers out 100 miles from shore. Also, our boat has many redundant safety features. For communications we are equipped with a VHF radio, a cell phone, and a independent satellite phone. The Captain will brief your group at the beginning of the trip about where to find life jackets, throwables, fire extinguishers, and the most important safety feature a boat can have, the EPIRB. This unit will instantly send a distress signal via satellites to the Coast Guard if the boat sinks or the crew sets it off due to eminent danger. Don't worry we've never had to execute an emergency plan beyond a drill! Our safety record stands at 100%. You can enjoy our trips knowing that we are safe and secure at sea, that's the professional difference.
IS THERE A TOILET ON BOARD?
Negative! Ladies, we have a convenient way of going, and a wash down hose with fresh water to clean.
WHAT IF I GOTTA RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL?
We understand that unavoidable circumstances arise and you may have to reschedule or cancel your trip. Under the conditions that either is made within 48 hours, you may receive a full refund on the deposit made to reserve your charter. In a case where the trip was not cancelled or rescheduled within that timeframe, there will be no refund. The Captain works 24 hours in advance for the trip, to ensure the boat is prepared for the charter. To ensure his time is not wasted, the deposit will be kept.
WHY DO FISHING CHARTERS COST SO MUCH?
Maintaining and operating a safe, properly rigged quality fishing boat is expensive. There are many costs that one never sees on a fishing charter. For example: fuel, charter insurance, dock fees, boat maintenance, and many other factors are involved much like any other line of business. The actual charter is what we think of as the final product of all our efforts. This is why we take pride in our guests having such great trips. You get what you pay for in charter boats, we strive to keep our costs down to give you the best value in the area. Overall, the excitement of chartering and actually catching many fish is well worth the expense.
