Rates & Options

We offer a first class operation. Despite the rising cost of doing business and with the economy as it is, we are planning on keeping our rates the same as the past 2 years in hopes that this will provide some incentive to all to come and join us. And, for our full day charters, we're the only charter that guarantees you'll catch fish!!! Also, unlike any other charter on the Bay, our prices include everything (including bait).  Mention this ad when booking and get 10% off listed prices.  We are conveniently located to the Baltimore and Washington metro areas.

  • 6 Hour Trip - $625 for up to 6
  • 8 Hour Trip - $775 for up to 6
  • Evening Charters can be either 6 or 8 hour trips at same prices as above.

These rates are for up to 6 passengers and are group rates. Please understand that we are NOT a head boat. However, we would be happy to assist you in finding individuals to join your group, if requested.

The above prices include all licenses, equipment, tackle, bait, and ice for your fish. The charter prices DO NOT include a tip for the mate or the captain. Our mates and captains work very hard for our customers, and their day begins an hour or two before you arrive and doesn't end for 2 or more hours after you leave. Tipping the mate is customary and usually averages 20% to 30% for a good job. However, it is left to your discretion.

We will normally filet or clean your fish at no charge. An exception to this is for large numbers of bottom fish (i.e., spot, perch, croaker) - a small fee will be requested. We also offer non-fishing scenic cruises for parties. We welcome private parties for full day, overnight, and weekend cruises, including bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate charters, birthday parties, and private romantic cruises. We can provide you with any combination of activities as well. The charters can range from fishing part of the day, then swimming and lounging at a secluded creek or lagoon to a weekend in Annapolis, St. Michaels, Tilghman Island, Baltimore Harbor, or Solomons Island. Custom design your own trip if you like. The typical rates are as follows:

  • Full day cruise (locally including St. Michaels or Annapolis) - $650
  • Full day cruise (outside of middle Bay including Baltimore Harbor, Solomons Island) - $775
  • Overnight cruise (locally) - $850
  • Overnight cruise (outside middle Bay) - $950

The prices do not include food or lodging. We would be happy to assist you in arranging for lodging (please see our directions link) and we can recommend some excellent restaurants.
