Tournament Rates

A $500 Deposit Will Reserve Your Tournament Charter

We love to participate in Tournaments, and will work hard to put you on the fish.  Due to the registration expenses involved in fishing tournaments, our prices are significantly lower and designed to make it AFFORDABLE for you to hire us to charter your tournament. WE CHARGE NO ADDITIONAL "CHARTER FEE" IF YOU CHOOSE TO BOOK US FOR A TOURNAMENT.  Instead, the following rates will apply:

  • $500 deposit is required for fuel, oil, etc.  Any monies not spent for expenses will be returned to you, the angler(s).

  • Tournament Fee must be paid by the angler(s) in advance directly to the tournament officials.  This amount will vary according to the tournament.

  • Required 15% minimum tip (15% of the deposit plus the tournament fee) payable to the First Mate upon completion of the trip for each day fishing in the tournament.

  • The boat will receive an equal share of any monies won in the tournament.

  • As always, Affordable Fishing Charters will provide the bait, rods, tackle & ice.

In other words, to charter us for a tournament, the only fees involved are expenses (fuel, oil, etc.), the tournament fee, the First Mate's tip and an equal share of any monies won during the tournament.

All trips are based on sea conditions, the weather, and your safety. Your Captain is highly trained and experienced to make the safest call available at the time. We reserve the right to delay, postpone, or cancel any trip as we feel necessary.
"Affordable Fishing Charters" captain, crew, or sponsors are exempt from any and all claims for loss of time or value of your vacation, travel expenses, etc; due to any trip cancellation or trip cut short. We reserve the right to deny service to, or return any person to port who we feel may disrupt or jeopardize ourselves, others, or our vessel and equipment. All persons on board a United States Coast Guard licensed vessel are under the federal authority of a "Merchant Marine Officer", and the Captain's decisions will be final.
