Deposits are required to ensure anglers are committed to their fishing dates. In the event of an emergency, immediate notice is helpful so dates can be rebooked.

Cancellation Policy:

Because of the high demand for certain dates during peak seasoncancellation is required more than 30 days in advance. This gives some time to find a replacement for the dates. Inside of 30 days, full payment of each guided day may be required.

Although we make every attempt to rebook cancellation days, it is not always possible on short notice.

Weather Related Cancellations:

During our Tropical Season from June 1 through November 30, please check with the guide for information if there is a forecasted tropical storm heading towards the Keys.

On any given day, the weather is a fact of life here in the Keys. We strive to fish if the guide feels the day is fishable. A cancellation due to weather is solely the discretion of the guide.
