72 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY. We have made our day and our vessel available to you. We did not plan to make repairs nor did we plan to spend the day with our family and friends. We dedicated the day and the vessel to you. For this reason the full charter rate is assessed for cancellations made within 72 hours from the charter date at 7am. Cancellations within 72 hours do not allow sufficient time to find new friends for the day nor does it allow us to properly plan for maintenance and repairs to the vessel or to plan time with our families and friends. Your understanding of this cancellation notice requirement is of utmost importance to us as we do not like to receive payment from cancellations as much as we do not like to waste a productive day in our lives.
Weather Cancellations are determined exclusively by the Captain. The island has many and very diverse ecosystems. It is the wettest spot in the world yet it rarely rains on the ocean. The biggest condition affecting the ocean is wind. We are located on the LEEWARD coast and this affords us much better conditions on the water. For this reason what you see outside your window or hear from a forecast may often be a poor example of what the local conditions will be. The windward side, East, may show stronger winds and larger active surf. During the winter months large North Swells may seem impossible obstacles to a good fishing experience yet, this is not what you will find on the South shore. Our experience and local knowledge is the key to a safe and fun day on the water. The Leeward coast offers many advantages to finer conditions. For these reasons Weather Cancellations are made exclusively by the Captain. Expect you may be taken out of your comfort zone but realize we have no intention of committing ourselves, and the vessel beyond the vessels capability. Things may get exciting but the Captain will cancel a charter if he feels it is unsafe. In the event the Captain cancels due to weather we will try to find a better day to reschedule. If an alternative day is not possible no payment will be expected and any deposit will be refunded.
MECHANICAL BUMPS do happen unexpectedly. We have three vessels for a reason. At times a pump or starter may give out on short notice. In the event of a mechanical mishap we may jump to an alternative vessel. This is the benefit of having multiple boats. We have two 31 Bertram’s and a 32 Blackfin. All three vessels are similarly outfitted and considered to represent very fine fishing machines. At times all are running on the same day. In the event a mechanical issue arises and an alternative vessel is not available we will attempt to reschedule. Should a mechanical issue impact our day and we are unable to reschedule no payment will be expected and any deposit will be refunded.
Fish Catch Policy
It is our intent and greatest pleasure to share a portion of the islands finest and freshest fish with our friends. At the end of the charter we endeavor to fillet portions of the catch for our guests with the goal of providing for your needs for 3-4 days fresh fish. We do not pack and ship fish to the mainland. We are not intending to cater your wedding party. At times we may not find a fish and we may often have something in the box form the prior day we can cut. On other occasions we catch very large fish. As a fisherman we are not able to cut portions of fish from a larger fish and market the remainder. Fish must be sold whole. For this reason larger fish will not be cut as they are intended for the local markets with proceeds supporting the crew and the equipment on the vessel. Fish sold locally keep our island economy going. We don’t have shipping, logging, tech sectors, oil or natural gas but we do have fish and tourism. A tuna will help employ staff (my friends) at a local restaurant for about a week. If you are fishing for “meat” your best bet is the local fish market. It is fresh and you can save yourself the 4, 6 or 8 hours of looking for it in the ocean with no guarantee of finding it. Please take note of the fish catch policy as your understanding of our intentions and local rules will avert misperceptions, sustain moral and enhance your personal experience in the event of a hard day on the water or the greatest fishing experience you have ever had.
It is our purpose to take you out on this ULTIMATE HAWAIIAN ADVENTURE and bring you back safely. It is our intent to pursue the catch with determination, conviction and grace. If done well it should feel effortless but rest assured our greatest effort is applied long before you arrive and well after you leave. Maintaining the vessel and gear in proper order as well as effect is time consuming and costly. Please be aware that on any charter gratuity for the crew is not included in the charter rate. Consideration for the crew, 15-20%, should be planned for in addition to the charter rate. If you have no intention of extending a courtesy to the crew for their service and effort on your behalf please consider another activity for your entertainment. The crew wages are derived from gratuity and fish sales.
