Insurance

Do I need special insurance?

No. Kelly Ann charters supplies ample insurance coverage for the boat and liability insurance for it’s occupants. However, you should have your own health insurance in the event of a medical emergency.


Do I sign a waiver?

Kelly Ann Charters currently does not require a signed waiver to partake in our charters.


Payment

When is full payment due?

Payment for your charter is DUE in FULL no later than 10 days before your scheduled charter date. You risk losing your reservation and deposit if you fail to pay the balance on time.


Is a deposit required?

A $400 deposit is required to confirm a reservation for any inshore or offshore fishing charter. A $150 deposit is required for a Harbor Cruise.

Please DO NOT pay your charter in full when requesting a date. Sometimes the date is unavailable and you may wish to reschedule or have your deposit refunded.


Cancellations

What if cancellation is from inclement weather?

Should the captain determine that the weather and seas are too rough for your charter to go out you will be offered the option of rescheduling. In the event that rescheduling is not a possibility, you will be refunded 50% of your deposit.  Rain is not considered a reason to cancel a charter, and vessels will sail on a rainy day.


What if I have to cancel my charter?

Cancellations received more than 14 days prior to your trip are refundable. If you cancel less than two weeks before the charter, your deposit is non-refundable.


Preparation

Do I need a license?

You do not require a fishing license. That is covered by the boat. However, you do need to bring a drivers license or some other proof of identification for your scheduled charter.
