Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to Capt. Sally’s most frequently asked questions! Of course, if you don’t find what you’re looking for – feel free to give her a call at: (361) 296-4440

What time do we meet?​

Pickup/Meeting times will vary depending on the type and length of the charter and our goals for the day.

Your Captain Sally will speak with you directly the day before your trip to coordinate meeting time, location and what your goals are for your fishing and/or hunting experience.

What is your cancellation & rescheduling policy?

We are a very small business and cancellations affect our bottom line significantly. Our goal is to treat our clients the way we want to be treated:

There are no refunds. We will reschedule within a year for dangerous weather (as determined by the Captain).

Rescheduling: You may reschedule your trip two weeks out or more – we will hold your deposit for one year. Cancellations after this time will be charged the full amount of the trip.
