No Fish No Pay Guarantee
Florida Keys fishing is some of the best in the world, but every day is different. Main Attraction is one of the longest-standing, largest fishing charter fleets in the Florida Keys. Our crews are well-experienced, skilled, and very good at catching fish. Despite this, the conditions of the day will have a significant impact on your results. Some days are incredible, some good, and some days are slower. Remember, it’s called fishing and not catching for a reason!
Because of our confidence in our crew’s ability to catch fish, we are one of the few charter companies in the Keys that offers a No Fish No Pay Guarantee on our full day fishing trips.
Our guarantee: If we don’t catch fish (“Full Day” trip only), all you pay is a customary tip of 20% of the trip cost to the Captain who will split it with his mate if he has one. This guarantee is intended to relax the anxious angler or new customer on the Main Attraction. It also proves that we will produce fish for you. For the No Fish No Pay Guarantee to apply, the customer must let the captain select the species of fish based on the fishing conditions for that day and what is in season.
Angler errors are also exempt from the guarantee. If your Captain and crew keep putting you on fish and you fail to get a single one to the boat, the No Fish No Pay Guarantee will not apply. Please listen to our crew’s advice on how to fight fish, or allow them to assist you.
If you need to cancel your charter(s) for any reason we require 48 hours’ notice. Other Florida Keys fishing charter companies will charge you for the entire charter or at the very least you would lose your deposit. Main Attraction we do not charge upfront deposits for bookings or expect you to pay for the entire charter in advance, we simply have a cancellation fee for last-minute cancellations and no-shows. If you cancel within 48 hours of the scheduled trip, we will charge you a cancellation fee of $250 for a half-day trip and $500 for a 3/4 or Full Day trip. If you cancel with less than 48 hours’ notice on multiple boats and/or trip bookings, the cancellation fee will apply to each separate trip you are canceling. Not showing up for your charter at all without warning, is an automatic cancellation fee.
Our crews wake up at 4 am and spend hours catching live bait and preparing each vessel to fish, to no-show ruins their day and affects their income. If extenuating circumstances arise, please contact us immediately so we can determine the situation and try to rebook the boat to avoid the cancellation fee. If you are worried or concerned about forecasted weather, please contact us to discuss. If it is determined by Main Attraction personnel that weather or fishing conditions will be a hindrance to the quality, and/or safety of the customer(s) during the trip, the customer will be notified and offered the option to either reschedule or cancel without penalty.
