I'll put the details up here as soon as the next trip is arranged, which should be in a week or so. We are looking at October or November.
The boat is around $650 to $750 per person. Tip is usually around 15 to 20% depending on the trip. Besides that you have travel and 1 or 2 nights in a hotel.
The equipment is fairly specialized. Most of the junkies have around $2000 and up in their set-ups, but we generally have plenty to cover the newcomers.
We supply our own groceries, but sometimes do group meals.
This type of fishing can really get in your blood, so be careful.
Almost everyone that joins us starts buying equipment after their first trip.
