Starting times on full-day trips can be varied in most cases to meet the needs of our clients, and occasionally half-day trips can have varied start times. The half-day (5.5 hours) and full-day (8 hours) trips are based on a dock-to-dock schedule. These timeframes may be shortened if your party catches their limit of the target species of fish.
We can accommodate up to 24 people in a group with a maximum of 6 people in each boat, based on US Coast Guard Regulations. If the group exceeds 24 we will arrange additional boats of similar quality.
A deposit of $150 for half-day charters and $250 for full-day charters and all packages is required (via VISA, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX, PayPal). The deposit is refundable if the trip is canceled due to weather, for package trips room costs will be charged if rooms are used. The deposit is not refundable for a trip that is canceled by the client, but is transferable to another date, if there is 7 day advance notice from the client.
All trips operated in Wisconsin waters will have the applicable sales tax (5.5) applied to their charter.
