When it’s time for your next fishing charter boat adventure, the possibilities are endless. And once you’ve decided on your ideal location, have your gear packed, and are ready to go, it’s time to find your boat. Chartering a boat, while an easy process in general, can only prove difficult due to the amount of options available to the paying fisherman. Prior to booking the first service you come across, it may be worth your while to get the low down as to what you’ll be paying for. In this article, we will walk you through the process of finding your perfect boat.
Step 1 – To begin, you’ll want to have your boat booked at least two weeks ahead of time. Most of the better boats are generally booked well in advance, and as such, booking yourself in advance is the best way to go. While you are certainly free to test your luck and pray for a last minute cancellation, it’s always nice having your schedule set out for you and knowing that your next trip booked and waiting for you. Check out at least three different boat services before deciding on your first choice.
Step 2 – Contact each company and find out which type of fishing they specialize in. Where some will offer bottom fishing, others will offer trolling and others will specialize in both. Find out information regarding what you should expect in pricing as well as the length of each trip. What types of fish are you most likely to find with each trip? Is there a deposit?
Sport fishing is a popular hobby that many are taking to today and Florida Keys is one of the best places to indulge in it. You can find different kinds of fish all through the year in Florida Keys. Even if you don’t have a boat of your own, you don’t have to worry as you can find a number of companies that offer fishing boat rentals in Florida Keys.
Tips to Rent Fishing Boats
Many companies that provide fishing boat rentals in Florida Keys also offer motor boats to ensure that customers can sail comfortably. However, there are other requirements that will keep you comfortable and safe at sea. Listed below are some things to look for when choosing fishing boat rentals in Florida Keys.
Well Maintained Boats
The first thing to look for in fishing boat rentals is that the boats being offered are in good working condition. You can get an idea of the quality of the fishing boats by simply looking at rental buildings and offices. If these aren’t in good condition, chances are that the boats will also be in the same condition.
Safety Gear and Equipment
Another thing to look for when renting boats is the inclusion of safety gear and equipment. Ensure that you have all the required safety equipment on board as it’s a legal requirement. Avoid using a rental company that doesn’t offer suitable safety equipment. In addition to this, also check the equipment to ensure it works properly.
The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour, founded in 1938 and located just 15 minutes north of downtown Orlando, is one of these lovely side trips that combine beautiful scenery, a bit of local history, some close-up exposure to local wildlife and vegetation with a relaxing outing in a slow-moving 18-passenger pontoon boat, all complete with expert (and sometimes humorous) narration provided by the boat’s captain.
The tour takes you through 3 lakes: Lake Osceola, Lage Virginia and Lake Maitland. On this gorgeous day, with brilliantly blue skies, the boat whisked us past hundreds of beautiful water-front estates, many of which were originally built in the 1920s and originally sold for $20,000, while fetching between $500,000 and several million in today’s booming Central Florida real estate market. Even boathouses are worth between $30,000 and $40,000.
In Lake Virginia we came up close to the grounds of Rollins College, one of the top rated private liberal arts colleges in the South Eastern United States, founded in 1885 by New England Congregationalists. Rollins College is the oldest recognized college in the state of Florida with a small student body of 1,700 students, housed on a beautiful 70 acre Mediterraean Revival Campus. Our expert captain / tour guide mentioned that tuition at the college is $38,000 and the ratio of students to professors is 12:1.
