How Do I Book A Charter?
The first thing you have to know, is that I book trips on a first come, first serve basis. The further in advance you book a trip, the more likely you’ll get the date or dates that you desire, especially in the January – June time frame.
There are several ways to contact me.
- Call 954-588-5951
- Email me at email@example.com
When calling my phone number, if you get my voice mail, leave a message with a number where I can reach you. I’ll be notified, immediately, of the message and get back with you just as soon as I can.
Is A Deposit Required?
Yes, I require a $100 deposit to hold each date you want to book. The deposit, in the exact amount, should be paid to Captain Gil Gutierrez via paypal. When I receive the deposit, I will send you a receipt.

How Do I Pay For The Charter?
We accept cash or credit cards.
How many people can go on the charter?
The maximum number of people I can take is four (4). It makes no difference whether they are adults or children.
Can I go as part of another group?
This is known as a split group, split party, or split charter. I DO NOT arrange them. When you book a charter with me, you are booking my boat for yourself or group of up to four (4) people.
What About a Fishing License?
All adults are required to have a fishing license. I purchase a license each year that covers everyone who fishes aboard my boat, so it is not necessary for you to purchase a temporary fishing license.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
Weather conditions are the main reason a charter will either be cancelled or postponed to another date.
If, based on the Captain’s knowledge of local weather conditions, the seas are too high or rough; we will reschedule the charter to another date. If this can’t be done, then the deposit will be refunded. If you contact me 2 wweeks in advance to cancel the charter, your deposit will be refunded in full.
If you are a “no-show”, you will forfeit the deposit.
Refunds of a deposit for any other reason will be handled on a case by case basis.
I’ve Gone Out Numerous Times On My Own And Have Had Little To No Success. Will You Teach Me How To Fish?
Yes I can, however, it has to be on my boat. Once you’ve spent the day learning on my boat, you can go out on your own boat and practice what you’ve learned.
Can You Come Out On My Boat And Take Me Fishing?
No. Due to liability reasons, my insurance policy will only allow me to take charters out on my boat.
