I booked a deep sea fishing charter with Mikes marina fishing charter and emailed him the day before, to check to see if the trip would be cancelled because the wind was blowing quite hard and he assured me that everything would be OK.
We went fishing on Jan 28th on the Gladiator and it wasn't OK, the waves were rolling 10'- 15'. After being banged around for 1 1/2hrs, I told the captain to take us in.
I guess that's why we didn't see any other fishing boats out there.
We called Mike( he doesn't have an office at the marina and doesn't really know the sea conditions) to discuss final payment and the best he would do was $200 off the $600 rate. I think the trip should have been cancelled.
I have been In email contact and all I get are excuses, NO refund for seasickness, no matter how hard the wind is blowing and how high the seas are.
I should have trusted my instinict and cancelled and only been out of the 100 dollar deposit.
Reading the reveiws after the fact, it seems to be a common thread that he doesn't cancel on windy/extremely rough days.
FYI - Gladiator doesn't have a chair, they use fishing belts. Even if we had caught a fish on this rough day, there wouldn't have been any place on deck to wedge yourself in too reel in the fish.
