Private Charter vs. Open Party Charter

Question – 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.

Question– 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.
