  • How many passengers can your boat accomodate?
    Captain Justin is licensed by the United States Coast Guard to carry up to 6 paid passengers. Please do not show up to the dock with more than 6 passengers.
  • What should we bring with us?
    Beach towel, sun screen, bathing suit, debit card/cash if you would like to stop for lunch. Try to only bring the essential items you think you will need.
  • What time should we arrive at the dock?
    Try to arrive 10-15 min early. Please call if you will be running late. If you are late you run the risk of your trip running shorter than expected.
  • Can we bring food and beverages?
    Yes, you can bring food and beverages. Please do not bring glass containers, cans only. We do have two large coolers on board with ice. Please try not to bring a large cooler as it takes up a lot of space on the boat and we have two ready to load!
  • What if I get sea sick?
    We'll do our best to get you back to land fast if you're not feeling well. We do cary motion sickness bracelts onboard as well!
  • Is there a bathroom on board?
    Unfortunately, we do not have a bathroom onboard. However, there are plenty of options along the water to stop at anytime!
  • Can we go fishing?
    Umm....maybe! So this is a tough one for a few different reasons. A.) I'm not a fishing guide but there are plenty around. I can give you a referal. B.) The boat is more of a cruiser than a fishing boat. Imagine is more for lounging. In the circumstance that you have a fishing license and it is a small party, lets say 3 people or less we can talk about some light fishing. We do have a livewell on board and light tackle. However, I can not guarentee any catch. We can try a few spots and see what happens!
  • What if the weather is really bad on the day I booked my charter?
    If the weather is not looking good or the winds are over 16 mph we will cancel the trip. If you are leaving town before we can find a time to reschedule we will provide a full refund. If there is a day that works for your party to reschedule we will make sure to accomodate that. In the event that foul weather does occur during your trip we will head back to port and your trip will be prorated.
  • Should I tip the captain?
    Captain Justin works very hard to make sure you and your party have a great time! If you think he did just that, sure, a tip is always well recieved. A customary amount is anywhere from 10%-20%.
  • Do you sell gift cards?
    Yes, please call us at 941-254-6200 to purchase!
  • Where do your charters depart and return to?
    All of our charters depart and return to the same marina. The marina address is: Hidden Harbor Marina 7700 S Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34231
