If you fail to turn up

If you fail to attend on the day of your booking any deposit/payments paid will be forfeited and you will be liable for the full cost of the booking.

If the skipper cancels

Although we never want to cancel a trip, sometimes the weather cancels it for us! The skipper is continually assessing weather conditions and if he feels that conditions are such as to make it unsafe to set out to Sea he will advise you. In the event that we do have to cancel a trip you will be offered the chance to reschedule your booking for another day or receive a full refund.

Tackle/Equipment Hire

Tackle hire is available and should be booked and agreed before or at time of booking. When hiring equipment the skipper will ensure that any equipment hired is in full and fit condition for the type of fishing being carried out. The cost of hire covers rod and reel hire and 1 set of terminal tackle. If additional tackle is required during the trip this will be charged at an agreed rate (such as lures, weights etc). During any period of hire you will be responsible for the safety of the equipment hired to you. In the event of loss or damaged to hired equipment you will become liable for any costs relating to the repair or replacement of said equipment.

Personal Equipment Liability

Brigand Charters accepts no liability for any personal belongings or equipment that is bought onto the boat and as such individuals do so at their own risk. When on the boat ensure that you pay the same respect to other anglers equipment as you would to your own as you will be liable for any damaged to other anglers equipment caused by yourself.

Drugs & Alcohol

The safety of the crew and guests is our number 1 priority and we take a zero tolerance stance on illegal drugs on the boat.  If anyone is found to be in possession of or under the influence of drugs then the boat will be immediately returned to port and the police informed.  The offending individual(s) will be liable for the full cost of the charter for the day as a result.

We are not a “dry” boat, however any alcohol consumption is to be kept to a reasonable level.  If at any point the skipper considers that someone is too drunk to safely fish, then that individual will be asked to stop fishing for the safety of others. In the event that the trip has to return to port early due to excessive alcohol, the individual(s) will be liable for the cost of the charter for the day. You will always be treated with respect when you book with us, we ask that you afford both our crew and your fellow anglers the same courtesy.
