Whether you are looking to land that “big one” or have a relaxing time on the water, a trip on the Chesapeake Bay is definitely a great experience. Charm City Charters offers a wide variety of trips, from short fun fishing trips for the younger anglers to crabbing charters – not to mention our very popular “Fins and Claws” trips. Whatever the trip of your choice, we will do everything we can to guarantee you a successful and enjoyable outing on the Chesapeake.
Here at Charm City Charters we depart 7 days a week with several trips per day. Departure times vary upon availability, but we offer morning, afternoon and evening trips daily.
Once you and your party decide which kind of trip you prefer and set a day with us, a deposit of $100 is required within 5-7 business days of booking to hold a reservation. Once a deposit has been received, an email confirmation with a reminder of the details for your trip will be sent to you. The balance for all charters, as well as the mate’s tip, will then be due at the end of your trip.
REMEMBER – No deposit, no confirmation, no trip!
Please remember to be on time. Your trip will start and end at a scheduled time. We run several trips daily and will not be able to wait and add on your missed time. If you do happen to run late, please be courteous and let us know.
All trips require at least a 30-day cancellation notice in order to receive a full refund. All trips cancelled within less than 30 days will forfeit the deposit, unless other arrangements have been made with the captain.
In cases of inclement weather, the captain reserves the right to cancel any trip. Safety is our #1 priority here at Charm City Charters. If the forecast is calling for severe weather, high winds or a small craft warning, there will likely be a cancellation. The captain will inform you as soon as possible of any chances for a cancelled charter. If your trip is cancelled due to inclement weather or mechanical issues, we will simply reschedule for a future day that season. We do not refund deposits for bad weather. There are too many nice days and the point of taking a charter is to be able to enjoy it.
What Is Provided
All licenses, tackle, bait and fish cleaning are included in your charter. You will have a USCG-licensed captain and knowledgeable mate to assist on your trip. A large cooler with ice is provided for your catch while onboard. Once your catch is cleaned and bagged, you will want to have a cooler with your ice for transport home. You do not have to have your catch cleaned if you choose otherwise, but we include this service to make your experience that much easier to enjoy.
