How do I make a booking on your site?

View and Read up on our Fleet of Offered Boats and their individual profiles that range in size from 20’ to 63’.

Click on “Book Now” or click on a “Shared Trip” Boat from the scheduled list of Shared Fishing Trips, which is located on each of the individual Island pages within the website and as a drop down selection from the main header menu. When you make your booking, you will need to provide us with your full name, phone # and Email and answer a few brief trip related questions like # of people, boat size, date etc… All of our HMF Charter Boats are connected to our network IN REAL TIME through a Mobile Smart Application, emails and cell phone communications. All shared and charter fishing trips are on a request basis and are ONLY CONFIRMED when you receive your electronic email PDF confirmation from HMF. The electronic confirmation PDF will be sent to you in a separate email only when your boat has been confirmed, crew booked and your trip reservation deposit charged. If we can not book your requested charter boat, we will contact you via email and call you with alternative boats or dates that are available. A Trip Reservation is NEVER charged until the captain first confirms the trip.
