Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

If I buy 5 can I use them all for one launch?

Cheryl K.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

You can use multiple 1 hour launch passes to make a longer trip. 4 Hours is recommended. You could also buy 2 four hour trips and combine them for an eight hour trip. You can only use one open boat pass as it is only a four hour trip and you can only use one pass per person. We only limit the number of passengers with Groupons to the capacity of the boat.

Q:

Are advance reservations needed?

Emery C.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

Reservations are required. You can make reservations for private boats anytime a boat is available throughout the season. Open launches are scheduled by us based on available boats about a week prior. When you are ready for an open boat, call us up to a week ahead of your visit to find out the open boat times available as open launches are not on a regular schedule however most of them run during the prime fishing time of 6 pm to 10 pm and often afternoon launches-. on the weekends. Most open boats are scheduled 1 to 3 day's prior to departure.

I just purchased 3 of these, and had a pop up on my screen that I had a $10 coupon to use that expired today. The note said it woud be applied at checkout, but it was not, and I was charged the $51 total. How can I apply this coupon, since it did not apply at checkout as the note said. Thank you!
