Any professional guide will gladly show you his Captain's License,
Guide License, TWIC-ID Card, and proof of Commercial Insurance and Commercial Registration for their boat.
These items are all required by law " to be on the boat". Guides also have to be enrolled
in a random drug testing program and should be displaying a large yellow decal proving compliance
for that year. Type 1 life jackets are required on all vessels carrying passengers for hire and
many guides do not have them.
Try to book with full time guides and beware of guides that fish tournaments for they are reluctant to show you the good spots they save for competition.
We furnish your fishing license for all Maryland and Virginia tidal charters and you will find this is rare in the trade and saves you money and the hassle of finding one on your own.
Most important- When booking charters always ask for your total cost to avoid surprises at the end of the trip- like fuel charges.
