Printed fishing licenses need to be purchased prior to the charter. A one day license is $6 for children under 16 years and $13 for an adults. All ages participating in fishing will need a one day Tidal Angling License with Salmon Tag for the Pacific Region. They are available on Department of Fisheries Site.
Clothing appropriate for the conditions including; hat, sunglasses, windbreaker, soft sole athletic shoes or waterproof boots. Layering your clothing is a definite must as conditions changed throughout the day.
Although we are fishing in protected waters, wind can pick up and create sea conditions that sometimes affect those susceptible to motion sickness. There are several over the counter medications and patches that work very well. See a medical professional for advise.
