Participant Guidelines:

We advise all our guests to listen closely to our experienced crew to ensure your safety while out on the water, we will brief you on safety equipment and how to use it before departure. Once we arrive at the fishing grounds our crew will demonstrate and explain safe and correct methods of how to use our deep-sea fishing tackle. We advise all passengers to bring a hat and sunscreen for your own protection.

Our vessel is equipped with all required safety equipment, however we need you to honestly declare any medical concerns or mobility issues when booking so we can deem if you are safe to travel as we aren’t easily able to get medical assistance out at sea. 

The vessel has an enclosed marine toilet, padded outdoor communal seat and 1/2 cover over the deck for some protection from the elements.

Weather conditions: We do not fish if strong winds or big seas are forecast. It is very important that you provide a phone number and have in hand so we can contact you the night before your trip in case the charter has to be rescheduled or cancelled last minute in the event of bad weather. We only cancel if strong winds and/or big seas are forecast. We do not cancel if it’s raining, if rain is forecast, we advise that you bring a suitable jacket or raincoat.   

Join Aquis and our friendly crew and have a memorable fishing adventure in the Far North.
