Q:

I don't understand the above statement. "The only other cost of the trip due to the mate at the end of the charter is a minimum of $52. This is 20% of the original cost of the charter." So, is it $99 plus $52? I want to purchase this as a gift but I don't want them surprised by having to pay $52 at the end of the trip.

Can you take more than 6 on one trip. If I buy one for my husband and I, and then another as a gift, can we take up to 12 on either ship. Thinking men will fish, woman will sightsee?

Q:

How far do we go out from the dock? and is that included in the 3hr trip?? Also what kind of baits would we be using for fishing?

Jacob Y.  asked on  Oct 2, 2012

A:

We go about 2-4 miles from the dock. You are usually fishing within the first ten minutes. The three hours starts from the time we leave the dock to the time we return. The bait changes from trip to trip based on the pattern of the fish. We could be trolling with artificial bait, jigging, or using worms and clams or other cut bait.

Q:

What is the extra fee that is due to the mate include? Basically just tip? I have 6 people coming this includes myself does this mean the trip will be 151 as a hole? or is it more?

Nikki G.  asked on  Oct 1, 2012

A:

As a whole, the trip including the mates fee would be a total of $151. The mate takes care of getting the boat prepared before and after the trip, baits hooks, cleans the fish, etc. The mate works hard to ensure your trip is as enjoyable as possible. Therefore we require the 20% as a minimum.

Q:

Do you combine people from different groups on the boat to total six? Can you mix crabbing and fishing on the same trip?

Jane C.  asked on  Sep 30, 2012

A:

No we do not mix groups. It will be your boat with the people you invite only.The only people on the boat with you will be the captain and the mate. On a three hour trip it is hard to crab and fish and have both be productive. Crabs usually bite best in the morning. Fish depend more on the tide then time of day.
