2018 Texas Pelagics Schedule

I am planning only 2 Texas Pelagic trips in 2018. After a bust in 2017 where no trips reached the minimum threshold of participants needed to be able to run them, I’ve decided to scale back the schedule for 2018. Hopefully I can sell out just 2 trips and run both of them!

The REGULAR FARE, shown in the table below, applies to those who pay at any time up until the deadline set by the charter boats to commit to running the trip. Any cancellations beyond this date and I loose my substantial deposit. If we haven’t reached the minimum threshold required to cover the charter cost by this date then the trip is at risk of being cancelled depending on how close we are to the minimum. If you can’t commit by the deadline and are okay with paying the late fare keep in mind the trip may get cancelled because too many people have waited until it’s too late.

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to keep our fares as low as possible all the leaders on the boat are also paying the Regular Fare. To break even at this fare I need 35 participants and leaders on every trip, which is about the average over the last 6 years. In the event that we have at least 30 participants but not 35, we will ask everyone if they would please pay a Supplemental Fare of up to $35 (if we are 5 short) to cover the charter cost shortfall so the trip can still proceed with a slightly smaller group. 

REGISTRATION: When you are ready to sign up click ‘Trip Sign-up’. Follow the instructions on the registration forms and mail it in with your payment. I have added a survey for everyone. It might help us to better meet the needs of our participants or even improve our trips.
