We include trained crew with appropriate certifications and all safety equipment, including life vests and EPIRB. You may bring safety equipment, such as your own life vest, if you desire. If you are bringing children, please contact the captain to ensure adequate safety, which may involve bringing a life jacket to fit the child. You may also bring your own rod and reel, if it is in good condition and approved by the captain. We suggest consulting with the captain before bringing your own fishing supplies. 

What to bring unless additional arrangements are made, food is not included, and your group may also wish to bring snacks and drinks. You will not need a cooler on the boat for your food, we will provide space for your drinks and food. You will want to dress in layers in cooler weather, and lighter cooler clothes in warmer weather. Wear soft-soled shoes for the boat. We recommend bringing sun protection (no spray, it makes the boat slick), motion sickness medication (we suggest that all directions found on medications be followed), polarized sunglasses, camera (remember that you are on a fishing boat and there is a chance that your electronics could get wet, Epic Charters is not responsible for any damages to personnel equipment.), a fish cooler to transport your fish home. The boat has speakers for your own music from your device. IPod, IPhone, and blue tooth attachments will work with the boats radio. 

What we will catch Fishing is an experience, and the fun of fishing is the hunt. Our professional captains can take your group on fishing trips focusing on your goals.
