How to Charter a Boat or Hire a Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral Fishing or Tour Guide.
For many people, a fishing charter or wildlife tour is a new and mystifying experience. Chartering a professional can be the best and most economical way to enjoy Florida’s incredible fishing and wildlife opportunities. Chartering a boat is simple with a few important steps.
First, make your reservations as early as possible to ensure the desired date will be open. Most boats require a small deposit, in case of a “no show”, and that will hold your date. Inquire as to what is provided on your charter or tour. Most charter operations provide bait, tackle, and licenses (All Water Adventures does!). Your food and drinks are usually your responsibility, but may be arranged if needed. We supply a large cooler packed with ice and waters for our passengers. Sunscreen, sunglasses (polarized), and a hat are often essential on the water. Second, confirm your trip with the captain and arrange the time and place. Ask your captain how many people he is allowed to carry and do not show up with one more in hopes of slipping him on (we can carry up to 6 people on our inshore & offshore boats and we have more boats available if you have a large party). Third, if a mate is working for you and has done a good job and been courteous and helpful, a 15 to 20% percent tip is customary. Mates often depend on a tip for their wages. It is fine to tip the captain too, especially if the boat is not his. Listen to what your crew tells you and you can have a safe and enjoyable day out fishing or touring Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral without any of the clean up or maintenance!
