Frequently Asked Questions

   What forms of payment do you accept?  Bamboo Charters accepts Visa, Master Card, Discovery, checks and cash.


What should I bring on my charter?   First and most importantly, polarized sunglasses and a hat.  We supply water and a cooler full of ice. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink. BUT NO BANANAS! Light colored shirts. Black death metal concert T-shirts are solar collectors and can cause you to spontaneously combust in the sun light!  Sun block is better as a lotion than a spray; spray is a waste and will make the deck of the boat very slippery.


What is supplied on my trip?   Bamboo Charters supplies bait, lures, flies, rods, reels, ice filled cooler, bottled water, Coke and Diet Coke, foul weather jackets and fishing licenses.  In other words, we have you covered, hook, line and sinker!


Should I bring a camera?   Yes bring your camera. Bamboo Charters boats both have dry storage areas on board for safe keeping.


What if there is bad weather?  It is our discretion to go or not to go. The winds are bad to us when there is a small craft advisory. This means that the winds are over 25 knots and gusty. Probably not the nicest day on the water. As for rain and such, it will be a mutual decision based on radar forecast. Rule of thumb, we generally do not go out on bad days.


What is your cancellation policy?             
•    Cancellations due to inclement weather are at the captain's discretion only.
•    Cancellations made by the client inside the 7 day cancellation period "for any reason" will be billed the deposit amount on the credit card given. We reserve the right to handle each cancellation separately due to different circumstances.
•    No Shows will be charged in full in all arrangements on the credit card given for deposit.
•    Should you need to cancel last minute, CALL US. Our voice mails are time dated.
•    Cancellations due to "too much the night before" are not our problem and will be charged in full.
