Deposits are required to secure your reservation. The standard deposit is $200 per boat per day. Your deposit amount will be included in your payment at the time of your trip.
If you require multiple boats we have numerous guides that we can book to accommodate your party. If the number of people in your party changes requiring an adjustment in the number of boats, you must notify Captain Garland O'Neil in writing at least one month prior to your trip stating the exact nature of your cancellation or addition. You will be financially responsible for all boats booked for your reservation.
Each person on the boat must have a valid Louisiana Saltwater fishing license. It is your responsibility to obtain a license. O'Neil Outfitters Inshore and Offshore Charters, LLC will not be responsible for any ticket/fine issued in connection with you or a member of your party not being licensed. If any O'Neil Outfitters Inshore and Offshore Charters, LLC equipment is confiscated due to a member of your party's lack of a valid license, that person will be held financially responsible for the purchase price of the equipment. Your license can be purchased at http:/www.wlf.la.gov/
O'Neil Outfitters Charters, LLC utilizes top quality fishing equipment. Sometimes that equipment does break under normal fishing conditions in which case customers will not be held responsible. However, if the equipment breaks due to your neglect or carelessness you will be held financially responsible for the purchase price of the damaged equipment.
Alcohol is permitted on the boat but intoxication is not. We want everyone to have a great time but O'Neil Outfitters Charters, LLC will not compromise passenger safety. If your level of intoxication becomes a safety hazard your trip will be immediately ended. It will be at the captain's discretion. You will be charged the full price for your trip regardless of the length of your trip.
If weather conditions become unsafe or hazardous, your trip will be rescheduled to a mutually agreed upon day and your deposit will be forwarded to that day. If you are advised by the captain of a potential weather issue and you elect to depart on your scheduled day, you are financially responsible for the full price of the trip regardless of the length of trip or the amount of fishing during the trip.
If an emergency situation arises in which you will no be able to attend on your reserved day, your trip will be rescheduled to another mutually agreed upon day and your deposit will be forwarded to that day.
For any other cancellation request we ask that you cancel as soon as you are aware that you need to cancel. If you cancel at least 21 days in advance, your deposit will be forwarded to the next mutually agreed upon day. If your cancellation is less than 21 days of the date of your trip, you will forfeit your deposit. If you cancel within 7 days of the date of your trip you will owe the entire amount of your trip.
