Private Charter vs. Open Party Charter

What is a “Private Charter”?

Answer –– That is when one person (the Chartermaster) is reserving the entire boat just for his or her own group. No other passengers are onboard for that trip. The Chartermaster is responsible for making the 50% trip deposit and collecting the balance due from the group.

What is in “Open Party” trip?

Answer –– That is when each individual person is purchasing a ticket, either online or at the reservation office, to go out with other passengers on a daily scheduled sportfishing trip.
