What happens if we have to cancel?

We understand that things happen!

So, in the event that you need to cancel your fishing charter with us, we only ask that you provide us with 72 hours notice of cancellation and will provide a full refund.

What if it rains or there's bad weather?

We fish rain or shine, however we want everyone to be safe.

In the event that your Captain chooses to call off your fishing charter due to poor weather or other conditions which might make your trip unsafe, we’ll do our best to reschedule your charter.

If for travel or other reasons you are unable to reschedule with us, we’ll provide a 100% refund for any amounts previously paid.

Reviews from Our Guests

Captain Blake and the Finatical vessel he runs is of the highest quality. Dock to dock, nothing but the highest quality gear and professional “can do” attitude. You can see the discipline from his time in the Army and he treats his customers like family! Highly recommend, and we WILL be fishing with him again.

Kyle Detwiler


Blake and his team were absolutely phenomenal not to mention one killer boat! The conditions weren’t ideal but that didn’t stop Blake from giving it his all and making sure we had a blast!!

Don’t hesitate to book a trip with Fanatical Charters! You want regret it!
