Life Preserver Laws - Passengers Age 12 & Under
There are 2 different rules covering life preservers, Coast Guard and Florida. As a Charter Boat we must follow the Coast Guard Rule. It States " On a vessel that is underway, children under 13 years of age must wear an appropriate U S Coast Guard-approved life jacket.
Fishing With Kids Under 13 Yrs Old
It has been our experience that kids under age 13 don't have the hand-eye coordination needed to cast effectively. In addition kids under 13 don't have the situational awareness of where the lure is at the start of a cast. This results in a much greater chance of them accidentally hooking someone else on board.
Our fishing charter rates are based on 3 people. If you choose to add a 4th passenger, but only 3 people can be fishing at the same time for your safety and to maximize your fishing fun. If you think about it, having more than three people trying to cast lures at the same time is never a good idea. There is a $40 charge for the 4th passenger.
From Nov to May we have negative tides most of the time. For example if a normal low tide is zero, a negative would be -1 foot. This makes it very hard to get around on the flats until the tide comes in. During this time of the year the tide has come in enough to get out by 10am on average. Our goal is to have you fishing at the best time to be on the water based on the conditions.
