Shared Charters – Mixed Group Charters

Shared charters are great for both beginners and more experienced anglers who know their way around a rod and reel. Catch a feed on the cheap and meet some new friends along the way. The downside is that the crew has to move around helping everyone on the boat, so the service isn’t quite as personalized or customizable. 

On a shared charter you pay a per person rate, and the operator puts together a group that is big enough to be viable to operate. In the event that you are only booking in for one or two people, this is by far the most cost effective way to get out on the water.

Keep in mind that you will be fishing other people and there is no option to return home early in the event you get seasick. Generally speaking, shared charters run to set departure and return times.

Private Charters – Whole Boat Charters

Private charters give you the option of a more tailored experience. Fish at your own pace and target the species and areas that you want. When you charter the whole boat privately for your own group. You have more flexibility, you choose who and how many people come along with with you.

Private fishing charters can be customized to suit what you want to do. Start and finish times can be modified to suit and the operator will quote a price accordingly.

The captain and crew will teach you the basics and help you bring the fish aboard. On top of all that, you get your own personal guide who can tell you about the area. They cost more considerably more than shared trips, but you get what you pay for. The total cost per person will depend on how many people are in your group.

Private charters are a great option for birthday parties, corporate days, bucks days or just a fun day out with family and friends.
