I need to charter a boat for 6 people on Friday, June 30th. I've found a couple places online, but they're asking around $1200 plus fuel costs, plus 15% gratuity. I don't mind the gratuity, but the rest seems a bit high. I want to leave out of Freeport. Does anybody know a good place to check out? Or if you can charter, please let me know. If nothing else, I guess I'll just have to jump aboard the boat out at Captain Elliot's. But I've been with them 3 times, and have always had the worst luck. The last time I rode with them, I only got 2 keepers. The worst part is that is was 1 less than the person who had the most keepers. 3!! I know it won't always be that bad, but I've never seen anyone haul up anything huge with them.
