Charter Deposits:

Afishionado Guide Services accepts all major credit cards or cash. A 50% deposit is required for reservations. All cancellations made within seven days prior to charter unless due to extenuating circumstances will forfeit their deposit unless cancellation is made by the captain due to dangerous weather conditions. Charters terminated by the client prematurely of designated reserved hours, are not subject to any partial refunds of services or deposits. No-shows on the day of the scheduled charter will be charged full rate.

Do not be undersold by fledgling third party booking agents and discounted guide services who lack experience and use inferior vessels and equipment. Also be skeptical of guides who don’t post their rates, but ask you to call for their rates or so called specials, only to give you the run-around. In this industry, you definitely get what you pay for.

My charter rates reflect the Tampa Bay area standard for top-quality professional full-time fishing guides. I’ve fished these waters since 1979, have made my living exclusively from guiding since 1997 and have a solid understanding of tidal conditions and yearly fish patterns. This knowledge enables me to give my customers a superior fishing experience.
