Fishing For All Ages
No Experience Required
No, individual fishing licenses are not required. The boat has an all inclusive fishing license that covers everyone on board.
Yes, babies and toddlers are welcome aboard. Coast Guard approved inflatable "floaties" must be worn at all times but are not provided. Items such as playpens & strollers are not allowed onboard. Baby carriers are permitted.
Captain Brian always takes weather conditions into account before heading out on the water. Unfortunately not every day is 75, sunny and calm. If inclement is an issue, consideration is taken on whether or not to cancel based on guests experience levels, age of children (if any), etc. The canceling of a trip is on a case by case basis & Captain Brian will always call to discuss the situation with you. With any trips canceled due to weather, deposits are refunded in full.
Virginia requires all children ages 13 and younger to wear life jackets at all times while the boat is underway. Once the boat is anchored, life jackets may be taken off (with approval of parents/guardians). While not required, any person may wear a life jacket at any time.
We recommend that coolers are not brought on board. They typically are large, take up deck space & often get in the way. A storage compartment with ice is on board the boat.
Keeping fish is optional. If you want to keep your catch, we strongly recommend to bring an extra cooler with ice to leave in your vehicle. Fish size and quantities will strictly adhere to all Virginia regulations.
