All trips are for groups of 1 to 6 people. Our prices are for the entire boat and not per angler so you can decide how many anglers you want to share your experience. All trip prices are cash discounted; credit cards add 5%. Please contact us for current fishing charter rates.
Don’t have 6 people? Don’t worry, Sharky'sCharters will put a makeup charter group together for you even at late notice.
