To email us go to our Contact Us page and submit your questions! We will be happy to answer any questions through email.
Will everyone catch something during the trip?
Not always. The captain and crew will do their absolute best to ensure each child on board catches something i.e. fish or crab. Unfortunately our trip depends on a lot of variables in order for everyone to catch some sort of creature (tides, current, water temperature, lunar proximity, air temperature, time of day). Mother nature can be tricky, but we are confident that all who attend our adventure will leave with new memories to cherish! Very few trips during our 3 year history have come back completly empty handed.
What payment methods do you accept?
All credit cards are accepted when making an online reservation. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, you must call to reserve your tickets, 410-279-8325.
How do you handle bad weather?
We will cancel your trip two hours before your scheduled departure in the event of any steady rain, thunderstorms, or high winds. We do operate in a slight drizzle or high heat. The Sea Dragon is conveniently covered by a 25-foot roof from bow to stern. You may cancel your reservation for any reason 24 hours prior to your departure.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
The Captain reserves the right to cancel any trip, private party, or field trip, for any safety reasons, or unforeseen weather conditions. We will always be watching the weather and will do our best to cancel any trip at least 2 hours prior to departure. In the case of high winds, heavy rain, or thunderstorms, we will cancel your trip and try to help you reschedule for another day. If there is light rain we will continue our adventure , the Sea Dragon is conveniently covered by a 25-foot roof from bow to stern that will protect us from the sun and rain. For Private Boat Parties you may cancel your trip for any reason 72 hours prior to the trips departure. For all other reservations, you have the right to cancel for any reason 24 hours prior to the trips departure. If you cancel your reservation within the 72 hour (Full Boat Parties) or 24 hours (all other reservations) and we can not sell your tickets, we will charge the card on file for your total reservation cost.
Do we need our own Fishing Gear?
Not at all, at Family Fishing Adventures we supply all fishing equipment including a fishing pole for each child on board, lures, bait, and all of the crabbing gear we will use. Feel free to bring your child’s own gear if they have a lucky pole or reel at home that they would prefer to use.
Do we need a Fishing or Crabbing License?
No, our U.S.C.G certified Captain has all of the Fishing & Crabbing permits through his Maryland Fishing Guides License. As well as, Crabbing & Fishing Permit Stickers on the boat to allow every child on board to Fish & Crab.
What should we wear?
Every angler knows that it is important to be prepared for anything. Dress for the weather, but on a average day where the weather is warm, a t-shirt, shorts, and soft soled shoes will do perfectly. Always try to avoid wearing flip flops on a fishing boat, but it is not mandatory as our captain and crew will make sure everyone is operating the fishing poles safely. If there is a chance of rain, bring a poncho or light rain coat. The Sea Dragon is covered by a 25-foot roof from bow to stern that will protect you from the sun and rain, but it is always better to “have it and not need it, rather then need it and not have it”.
Do you sell drinks or snacks?
Yes, we have added a Retail Cart next to the Sea Dragon to sell water, gatorade and light snacks. Be sure to pick up your Family Fishing Adventures gear before or after your trip (T-shirts, Long sleeve shirts, Hats, Stickers and more)!
