5 Days of Offshore Fishing
We start with a team breakfast to go over the day's plan.
We then board CHAOS, our U.S. Coast Guard commercially documented 39' SeaVee 390 IPS vessel that is tournament rigged with top fishing gear.
Under the guidance of a licensed Captain and mate, kids experience off-shore fishing. Depending on the day and conditions this may include jigging, trolling, bottom fishing, live baiting or deep dropping.
We end our day back around the lunch table reviewing the gear and techniques used during the day and planning for the next morning.
In the afternoon, kids are welcome to show their parents around CHAOS and share the day's experiences.

What Kids Learn
Designed for kids 7-14 with any level of fishing experience. No experience needed as we love being a child's first exposure to what often becomes a life-long passion.
Kids learn rod/reel selection, knot tying, bait rigging, boat safety, basic map and navigation skills, and species identification and targeting.
Our goal is simple. Fun and learning combined so every kid leaves with more on-water skills than when they arrived.
Q: Do kids need to bring any equipment?
A: No. CHAOS is a tournament rigged vessel with all the gear they may need on board.
Q: What happens if weather is bad?
A: Summer brings calm seas and fair weather; but, we will occasionally experience inclement weather requiring us to fish protected areas or cancel a day's activities.
Q: What should my child wear?
A: Protection from the sun and solid footing should dictate their dress.
Q: Should kids bring anything else on board?
A: Raingear and towel in case it is a wet day.
Q: Should kids bring food or drinks?
A: Not needed as CHAOS is stocked with water and an assortment of snacks.
Q: What is the cancellation policy?
A: Days canceled as unfishable due to heavy widespread rain, lightning, or winds in excess of 20 knots will be offered a prorated refund of $150/day or a make-up day at a later date. In the event of a named tropical storm, the participant will be issued a refund of $200/day or offered a make-up day. Make-up days will be made available up to 3 months after the last day of summer camp.Camper cancellations or no-shows forfeit the day of camp with no make-up or refund offered.
Q: Will my child be safe?
A: Our number one priority is the safety of every guest that boards CHAOS. She is a U.S. Coast Guard commercially documented vessel and held to higher safety standards than recreational charter boats. We undertake rigorous efforts to further exceed required Coast Guard requirements, including undergoing voluntary safety inspections prior to start of summer camp season. Each CHAOS captain is a licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard, requiring extensive background checks, physicals, and drug testing. All are also trained in First Aid/CPR. You can rest assured your kids are under the care and guidance of professional, responsible, and family-focused
Q: How much does it cost?
A: $1299 per session for the week-long session.
