Does the charter price include a gratuity for the deckhand?

An experienced deckhand can make for an exceptional fishing experience. If you feel like he or she provided that experience, it is customary to tip them. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however 15-20% is customary.

?
How many people do you allow on a charter?

Six fishermen per charter, however for overnight & longer charters a maximum of four fishermen will be allowed to ensure maximum comfort.

The maximum number of persons on board for any trip, including captain and mate, will never exceed eight.

?
Do you allow children?

Yes, however, we personally do not advise bringing a child under the age of 8 on trips longer than a 1/2 day, as the day can be somewhat demanding on young ones.

?
What if I get seasick?

We recommend that you take a motion sickness medicine in accordance with the instructions and with a light breakfast the morning of the trip to avert seasickness. Some individuals will still get seasick even doing so. In the event someone’s seasickness is intolerable, we will cut the trip short and return to dock. The captain will let your group make the call.

?
What should we NOT bring on the charter?

Please do not bring illegal drugs, contraband or GPS type devices.

?
Should I bring a cooler?

We will accommodate your drinks and food in our coolers and on-board refrigerator, however it’s a good idea to have a cooler in your car to take your catch home with you

?
Do you have a bathroom on board?

Yes, we have a bathroom with toilet and shower.

?
Where do we board and what time do we have to be there?

The Sunroad Resort Marina
955 Harbor Island Dr.
San Diego, CA 92101

Meet at Gate A-D

We suggest arriving 30 minutes before departing to avoid a rushed start. This allows everyone to get on board and settled in before the boat leaves the dock. There will be a brief safety orientation before leaving the dock.
