**Full moon middle of the night Tarpon trips: These exclusive trips take place during typical full or near full moon feeding times. Frenzies and multiple hook ups are common during these choice hand selected times. Prices are based on a crew of up to 3 passengers.

*Payment and Rates: Credit cards can only be accepted for your initial booking deposit. Accepted forms of balance payments are cash & checks only. Our rates reflect a 4% cash discount so if a credit card is used to pay charter balance, we cannot apply the 4% discount and will be added to the total.
Gratuity: Tipping your captain is customary in the charter business. Typically it is the same as giving gratuity to your waiter in a restaurant. 15%- 20% is a good rule of thumb, depending on what you feel the captain earned.
How to Reserve Your Trip: Please do not wait till the last minute - Be sure to book as far as possible in advance to reserve the exact dates you would like to fish. For these Tarpon charters, It is not uncommon for us to have bookings several months ahead.
Please feel free to book online 24/7, or send an email with the contact form on this site, or call so we can discuss available times and dates.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY: A $100 deposit is required to book your charter. Fishing is completely dependent on cooperation from Mother Nature. We keep an eye on weather and keep you informed on wind and weather forecasts. We do have to periodically cancel trips due to inclement weather. If your captain cancels, you will receive a full refund. If the customer cancels the trip giving us at least a 5 day notice, they will receive a full refund. A customer who does not show up, or does not give at least a 5 day notice, will however, forfeit their deposit. Winds predicted above 25mph or rain chances above 80% on weather.com within 2 hours of your charter are reasons for delay, re-scheduling, or cancellation.
