All fishing charters can accommodate up to six persons and  include all fishing licenses, end tackle, bait, rod/reels, cold drinks, ice and instruction if necessary.

 

Hire/Charter Terms for the vessel "ELECTRIC BLUE"

  1. INTRODUCTION.
    The following sets out the terms and conditions under which the vessel "ELECTRIC BLUE" may be chartered. This document forms an agreement between "ELECTRIC BLUE" (the owner) and the club or individual/s hiring the vessel (the charterer's).
     

  2. THE VESSEL.
    The owner will make available the vessel "ELECTRIC BLUE", licensed, insured and carrying regulation safety equipment, as set out by the USCG. The vessel will also carry a USCG Captain & and a crew when appropriate.
     

  3. ACCOMMODATION.
    We do not endorse any particular accommodation. Any accommodation must be reserved directly by the charterer's with the Hotel concerned and as such "ELECTRIC BLUE" are not involved in reservation of rooms etc.
     

  4. PAYMENT.
    A deposit is normally required to secure a fishing charter booking. This deposit is $100 for a daily charter. The balance is due on completion of the charter.
    For multiple charters, the full amount is payable on completion of each trip; the deposit is taken into account and deducted from the final charter.
    For Charters of several days a larger deposit will be required. This is subject to the Captains discretion.

     

  5. SIZE OF PARTY.
    Our license restricts us to a maximum of 6 passengers plus two crew. These limits will not be exceeded under any circumstances. Please remember that the charter cost is for the boat & the charterer's are responsible for the full fee, regardless of how many people are on board.
     

  6. WEATHER.
    Every Charters Captain's single biggest problem is the weather. However in Florida this is not usually the case unless we have a Hurricane forecast.

    For single day charters, please call us on Mobile (312) 330-6689 daytime and in the evening prior to the trip to check conditions. For multiple day charters, please call us on your arrival.

    We acquire weather information from a number of sources; shipping forecast, inshore forecast, internet buoy data, TV etc., and use it in deciding whether or not to sail. Intelligent interpretation of the best data available does not guarantee a correct decision; the owner cannot be held responsible if the charterer's have a wasted journey.
     

  7. CANCELLATION.
  • If the owner cancels the charter due to adverse weather conditions, problems with the boat, illness or indisposition on the owner's part or Captain's part, no boat charter fee is payable & the full deposit is returnable.
     
  • If deteriorating weather conditions force an early return to port, only that portion of the trip spent at sea is chargeable, with any part of an hour counting as 1 hour. It is the discretion of the skipper if no charge is levied.
     
  • A decision to return early to port is the Captain's & his alone. A return at the insistence of the anglers qualifies as a complete trip & the full fee is payable.
     
  • If the charterer's cancel a trip within 4 weeks of its date, the deposit is forfeited. If such cancellation is within 2 weeks of the charter date, then HALF THE CHARTER FEE is payable.
    Cancellation with less than 96 hours notice or No-shows will be billed on your credit card at FULL PRICE! NO EXCEPTIONS.
     
  • If a charter is cancelled due to an airline weather problem, we will honor this position and refund any deposit.
     
  • Please remember we are operating a business and this is our livelihood.

  • All Charter Costs must be settled on or before the day of the Charter.
    1. YOUR NAME AS PRINTED ON YOUR CARD
    2. CARD NUMBER
    3. EXPIRY DATE
    4. SECURITY CODE (THREE NUMBERS ON THE REAR OF YOUR CARD)

TRIP TIPS

  • Bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a cap/hat.

  • Wear Boat or Tennis Shoes.

  • No black soles please. They mark the boat deck.
  • Bring camera/camcorder as we will probably see Dolphins and also to photograph your catch should you want to release it. Fish always look better in photographs immediately after they are captured. Not hours later!

 

  • Bring plenty of food and beverages (Soft drinks such as Coca-Cola, Sprite provided free). We have a microwave to warm food and we can provide sandwiches etc.

  • if required. We also have an ice maker to keep/make those drinks colder.
  • Wear or bring seasonal clothing i.e. Light rain gear

  • If you are prone to seasickness take a seasickness remedy the night before and 1hr before arriving at the boat.

  • Do not over indulge (DRINK ALCOHOL) the night before the trip, nothing's worse than a spoilt day due to induced illness.

  • Bring a cooler for your fish if you wish to take fish home. (Leave this in your car until we return to dockside) We will provide you with ice.

  •  Tips (15% is customary) and are shared equally between the Captain and his mate.
