Planning a trip to the Florida coast and want to head out on a charter fishing trip or boat tour? When it comes to boat tours and charters, there are plenty to choose from. Get the most from your saltwater experience by asking questions and applying the following tips:
Obviously, not every boat tour or fishing experience is suitable for children. Before you call a charter, decide how many are going and find out everyone’s ages. Are there people in your group with special needs? If you want to take a large group, it might help to write the information down, just to have it on hand when you finally do make the call.
Decide on a Budget
The cost of fishing in Florida or taking a tour is determined by the number of people who want to go, how long you want the charter to be, and what type of fishing you want to do. How much are you willing to invest in a charter? Talk to the whole group to get a feel for the budget you’re working with. It’s customary to pay a deposit when booking the charter.
Customer Service Matters
Read customer reviews before booking a charter or a tour. Many charter companies have testimonial pages, but do dig a little deeper. Use your favorite search engine to find recent reviews. For the best customer service, consider booking a private charter.
How Long Should the Trip Be?
The average charter trip is four hours, but you can book six- and even eight-hour trips. Some captains offer overnight trips, too. Know the preferred length of your trip before you book!
