Had to choose one star to be able to leave a review. Not sure who Helene is as I was never able to speak to her, however, I was in contact with "her agent" Kim after I completed my booking on Boatsetter. Spellbound listed their boat for $1,975, however the rate of the boat is $1,350 for the four hours we rented it for. When we entered the boat, the captain welcomed the group with "What is my tip going to be on the $1,375?". We then walked into the boat and saw the rates FRAMED -- it sure was a slap in the face when you see you paid $625 more. We contacted Boatsetter right away, however, they explained that the boat owner is the one who lists the boat's rate and they just add the small service charge which is additional. We do not recommend this owner OR captain to anyone. In addition, the Captain did not assist throughout the fishing process as we were promised. Kim apologized for the experience and then DISAPPEARED. Still has not responded back to this huge discrepancy and to the negative fishing experience. I could write more about this experience but if I can say anything at all it would be to NOT give these people your business and book another charter - for which there are plenty around the Miami area. Please!
A security deposit hold (not a charge) will be placed on your credit card 48 hours before your booking starts to cover any incidental damage that may occur during your rental. This hold is released 48 hours after the booking is complete, if no claims are made. The security deposit amount for the boat you are booking will be outlined during the check-out process.
If requested, the owner can provide a list of available captains for bareboat charter or the renter can use their own qualified captain. If the boat is being time chartered, the owner will provide the Captain.
