  • Chevron down What if my group wants to fish for specific fish species?
  • If you want to go after specific species of fish, just reach out to us prior to your trip and we can tailor the length of your charter to meet your specific needs.

  • Chevron down What is your cancellation policy?
  • We have a 48-hour cancellation policy. You will be charged during that window unless we cancel your charter due to severe weather conditions or illness.

  • Chevron down We want to cook the fish we catch. Can you help clean our fish?
  • Yes! We are happy to clean your fish for you. We also know several restaurants that can prepare your catch for you. Either way, you’ll enjoy the freshest seafood possible!

  • Chevron down Is tipping mandatory?
  • Tipping the crew is customary and should be based on service. The Bayrunner team captains spend long hours behind the scenes catching bait, making rigs, doing maintenance, and more to try and ensure you have a great experience. If the visible effort meets your satisfaction, then you may want to tip, as blaming the crew for a lack of fish would be like blaming your waiter for the cook’s job. The industry standard is 20%.
