When booking any charter with us we require a half down deposit prior to any trip. The remaining half will be paid upon return along with additional crew gratuity.
Customer Cancelation Policy:
We require a one week advance notice to cancel a charter to have your full deposit returned. We only have so many trips that can be booked within the season and cancelations cannot always be filled within a week.
If cancelation occurs within 7 days of the date selected customer can choose to select another date (If Available) or use that deposit towards a trip the following year.
Weather is inevitable and is something we take very seriously when planning and guiding your trip. That said, the fish are wet already so rain is never going to postpone a trip. We ask that you take all precautions to stay dry, warm and comfortable. We do not cancel due to rain. Weather that causes the majority of our trips interruptions is the WIND. Wind can be unpredictable and can make for dangerous seas. We take this seriously and are in constant watch of the forecast to ensure the safety of all aboard.
It is the Captains decision and he makes every effort to decide in a timely manner if the weather will cause an issue before your trip. He reserves the right to cancel up until the time you are scheduled to leave the dock should he make the call that it will not be safe to leave.
If a weather cancelation must occur your deposit will be added to another day. If you cannot make another day this season your deposit will be added to next season. Full day trips can also be downgraded at the captains discretion to half day trips should weather conditions worsen while trips are under way.
Accidents happen on a boat… We understand this and try to take every precaution, however we ask that you take this seriously. We offer our customers the opportunity to use our gear and ask that they respect the boat and owners property. The boat is not an indestructible object and things can be damaged if not respected. If you break it, you buy it. If you Lose it, you buy it. You will be responsible to pay the replacement value for any rod or reel lost overboard, or any damage the boat may incur due to negligence, or misuse.
If a giant tuna is caught, the client receives that trip for free! The boat gets the fish. There are no exceptions to this rule due to commercial harvest laws.
Many believe bananas are bad luck to bring aboard a boat. Back in the early days they were among the first to spoil on a boat and would often lead to the rest of the ships produce and food going bad. Some believe it's a bunch of non sense. We are not those people... DO NOT BRING THEM. All parties stepping aboard will be subject to search and seizure of bananas and will have their paraphernalia confiscated and promptly hurled overboard. Culprits found to be in possession of such fruit will be further tortured throughout the day with jokes and any poor catch blame. You have been warned.

We Get These Alot....
What should I bring with me?
We suggest that you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, extra clothing and any food or beverages that you may need for the day. Please keep coolers to a minimum by storing them in your vehicle to use to transport your fish home!
Do I need my own fishing equipment?
No, the C-Angel provides customers with the best and latest fishing gear. All rods, reels, bait, and tackle supplies that you may need will be available to you!
What should I wear?
We suggest that you dress in layers for your fishing trip. It is recommended that you wear non slip shoes as the deck can get a little slippery and clothing that you don’t mind getting a little dirty! Depending on the weather and the season that you fish with us, you may want to bring warm clothing and rain gear. Please use your best judgment when anticipating weather conditions on the day of your trip!
How early do I need to arrive for my trip?
Please arrive at least 15-20 minutes before your departure time. This will ensure that you are settled in and comfortable before the trip begins. This will give the Captain and crew enough time to introduce themselves, discuss safety aboard the C-Angel and answer any additional questions you may have about the trip. If you are late to departure time the return time will not be extended.
Is there a restroom on board?
Yes, there is a private enclosed restroom "Head" on board.
How many people are allowed on the charter?
The maximum amount of people that we can take is 6 people per trip not including the Captain and crew. The vessel and Captain are licensed for no more than 6 people.
What type of safety equipment is aboard the C-Angel?
The C-Angel is equipped with US Coast Guard approved life jackets for all passengers, life raft, multiple fire extinguishers, visual distress signals for emergencies, and an updated first aid kit. Captain Jasper Coutu is certified in CPR, First Aid, AED and has additional Vessel Safety and Survival Training.
Are we guaranteed to catch fish?
We guarantee that we will try our best to land you on fish. However, it is not guaranteed that the fish will always be there or that they’ll always bite. There are many factors to take into consideration that are out of our control. The saying goes... "If they're there, we'll catch them."
Is gratuity included?
Gratuity is not included in the price of the trip. It is recommended that the mate receives 20% of the cost of the trip. The crew work very hard to offer the best trip possible and a tip is very much appreciated.
Do you process the fish? Do I need my own cooler?
Any fish that you intend to keep will be properly bled and processed to ensure the freshest table fare when you get back home. All fish will be filleted, skinned, bagged and put on ice. We do bring our own ice and coolers however an extra cooler is never a bad idea.
How many fish am I allowed to keep?
You will be made aware of all catch and size limits before fishing begins. That said even though you may be able to take a certain amount does not mean that is always the goal. We tell everyone they are allowed to limit out they're bag limits whether that is 1 fish per person or 10 per person, we believe heavily in a sustainable fishery and urge party members to take what they can eat. Let the rest go so they can grow!
Can we Drink Alcohol?
You can! We do make the suggestion though to try and limit consumption while at sea. For your own safety and well being while aboard a moving vessel and hot sun we ask to be mindful of how much you drink. We also remind customers that our main focus in providing this trip is to catch fish and do so effectively and safely. Enjoy yourselves but please be responsible.
