The Intimidator is a large 65 foot luxury sport fisherman with a knowledgeable, full-time professional crew that is kid friendly and "G" rated.

We have been in the fishing business for over 20 years and have learned a lot about fishing but also click here for more useful information on how to get your trip together
Here are some examples of calculating the total price of you trip
Example 1 (more than 10 fishers)
You want to go on a 6 hour trip with 13 people and 4 kids under 7 years of age for a total of 17 people.
A 6 hour trip cost is $1,600 (for the first 10) + 3 additional passengers $160 + 4 kids (under 7 is free) = $2,080
then add gratuity for your mates at 25% = $520 for a total of $2,600.
If you divide the number of people (17) by the total trip cost of $2600 the each person in your group pays only $122 per person plus tips which is not included but would be $153 per person, which is very competitive to many smaller charter boat or Party boat operations along the Gulf Coast. (on a trip with 17 people you will have 2 professional mates)
Example 2 (less than 10 fishers)
If you have less than 10 people you will still have to meet the minimum price regardless the number of anglers. Simply choose your trip, add in the gratuity fpr your mates, then then divide the price by the number of people, and that is your cost.
A overnight trip with 8 anglers is $7000 (10 Maximum) + the gratuity for you mates 20 - 25% so, lets just say 22% which is $1500 = $8500. If you choose the food option then add the $500 for that and you will come to the total of $9000 which gets divided up equally by the 8 individuals and you get $1125 per person. (on a overnight trip you will have 2 professional mates)
A Overrnight trip is $7000 + 22% tip is $1500 = $8500 for you trip total.
If you divide the number of people (8) by the total trip cost of $7000 the each person in your group pays only $875 per person plus tips which is not included but would be $1062.50 per person
