Safety is of the utmost importance and decisions regarding inclement weather will always be at the sole discretion of the Captain.  In the event the Captain cancels the charter, any deposits will be returned and no further charges will be due.  Prior to any cancellation, the Captain will make all attempts to take you and your party fishing/scalloping (monitoring radar and departing later in the morning in better weather, etc.). 

When booking your charter, there will be a $100.00 deposit required.  If you cancel your charter, you will be given the option for a reschedule or full refund of your deposit.  Please advise us of your situation as early as possible, so your cancelled date can be rebooked. Deposits will not be refunded within seven days of charter.
