Catering services are available for your group. Boats can be arranged for the purpose of fishing, nature trips/eco-tours, cruises, parties, Mavericks, or ash scattering.
Cancellation Policy
Credit card deposit is required on all reservations. Cancellations must be received at least 10 days prior to the reservation date or a 50% fee will be charged. If canceled within 48 hours of the trip, your card will be charged the full cost of the trip.
All trips are subject to possible cancellation, at the discretion of Captain Dew, due to ocean weather conditions or other unforeseeable circumstances. No charge will be made if the trip is canceled by us.
Adjustments/refunds will not be given for seasickness or lack of fish as the ocean and fishing are inherently unpredictable. However, Captain Dew will make every effort to ensure that your party has a great experience.
