ACCESSING THE SITE
THE SITE, COMPANY, AND COMPANY SERVICES COMPRISE AN ONLINE E-COMMERCE MARKETPLACE THROUGH WHICH OPERATORS CREATE THE LISTINGS AND TRIPS THEY OFFER. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT COMPANY IS MERELY PROVIDING AN INTRODUCTORY SERVICE SHOWING THE AVAILABLE LISTINGS OF CERTAIN OPERATORS. CUSTOMERS MAY LEARN ABOUT AND SCHEDULE A TRIP DIRECTLY WITH THE OPERATOR. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT COMPANY AND AFFILIATES ARE NOT PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENTS ENTERED INTO BETWEEN OPERATORS AND CUSTOMERS, NOR IS COMPANY AN AGENT OR INSURER OF ANY OPERATOR OR CUSTOMER. COMPANY HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE CONDUCT OF OPERATORS, CUSTOMERS AND OTHER USERS OF THE SITE OR SERVICES OF ANY OPERATOR LISTING, AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY IN THIS REGARD TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Users of the Site are granted access to services and content provided by the Company for the purposes of advertising a trip, searching for a trip, researching for the purpose of inquiring about a purchase, and purchasing any of the services offered on the Site. Unless explicitly specified otherwise, the Company’s responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Site and Company Services.
Operators who wish to create a listing shall agree to create their listing with accurate information about themselves and/or their company. If applicable, you must have an active, current fishing and/or boating license at the time of listing and at the time of the Customer’s trip with you. Operator agrees that any trip offered is in compliance with all applicable laws, including, but not limited to, maritime laws and intellectual property laws. Company recommends Operators obtain adequate comprehensive liability insurance for the protection of their Customers for their trips.
When a trip is requested by a Customer, Operators shall respond within twenty-four (24) hours to accept or decline the trip request. Any request not accepted or declined will automatically expire and result in a lower search ranking for your profile; any funds collected will be refunded to the Customer. Requests denied due to Customer’s not following Operator’s terms and conditions or boat rules will not affect your search ranking. When a request is accepted or confirmed the Company will send you a confirmation email with trip details. When a request is denied this will result in a lower search ranking for your profile. Multiple declined requests may result in Company suspending your profile and listing with the Company. The Company reserves the right to terminate accounts, refuse service, and suspend accounts in its sole discretion and timing for reasons including, but not limited to: unprofessional behavior towards Company staff or Customer, multiple declined requests, and multiple cancelled bookings.
You acknowledge your sole responsibility for honoring any confirmed trips purchased through the Site. You agree that you (and not the Company or its affiliates) are responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements with Customers, including refunds due Customers by you. The booking calendar is a unique feature to the Site in that it may link directly to Operator’s website and act as a single booking calendar. You agree that Company is not responsible for any Operator errors in scheduling trips. Operators may cease participation with the Site at any time and without cause. Should you wish to close your listing, send email notification to us and we will make reasonable efforts to process your request.
You are responsible for knowing and including applicable sales tax in your trip prices.
We do not guarantee that an Operator’s listing will appear in any specific order in a Customer’s search results. Search order and ranking is determined by a variety of factors including, but not limited to: search parameters, listing quality, frequency of calendar updating, Operator response time, non-acceptance of provided booking leads, listing history, trip capability, compliance with the Site, favorable Customer reviews, sharing fishing reports and trip photos/catches with the Company, and other factors that we deem important in our own discretion. We reserve the right to apply various algorithms to best match potential Customer with the overall marketplace. We retain the right to run different algorithm patterns to best improve our matching process.
The Company reserves the right to advertise Operator’s listings across various mediums including but not limited to, Print Media, Outdoor Advertising, Radio Advertising, Television Advertising, Internet Advertising, etc. If you would like us to stop advertising you on Google, please submit your claim to our Captain Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The Company will make reasonable efforts to process your request within three business days.
Customers may browse the Site as a viewer, but upon inquiring or purchasing a trip you must provide your own Personal Information to the Site. Customers who are purchasing a trip agree to provide accurate information to Operators about themselves (and their company when applicable) with the Site. The Operators, not the Company or Site, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed trips and making available any trips scheduled through the Company Services. If you choose to enter into a transaction with an Operator for a trip, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Operator and agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such trip as imposed by the Operator.
At the time of booking, the scheduled trip must be paid with either a deposit or in full (100%). If a trip is not accepted by an Operator, any amounts collected will be refunded to the Customer. Once a trip is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email with trip details directly from the Operator and Company.
AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, COMPANY, AND COMPANY SERVICES COMPRISE AN ONLINE E-COMMERCE MARKETPLACE THROUGH WHICH OPERATORS AND CUSTOMERS CONNECT DIRECTLY.

Online Payment For Customers – Including Taxes And Fees
The Site publishes trip rates provided by Operators to facilitate the scheduling of reservations on a Customer’s behalf. The cost displayed on the Site is a combination of trip rate, taxes, and the fee retained by Company for providing the Company Services. You authorize Company to schedule reservations for the total cost of trip and authorize Company to charge you either a deposit or full cost of trip at time of transaction.
Trip prices are liable to change at any time, but will not affect trips already confirmed. Despite our best efforts, some trips may be listed inaccurately; we reserve the right to correct any pricing errors or pending trips requested with an inaccurate price. If available, we will offer the pending trip at the correct price or cancel the request.
If satisfied with the trip and services, Customers are encouraged to pay gratuity to Operators. Gratuity is not included in cost of trip. For gratuity suggestions, reference our FAQs
Payout For Operators – Including Taxes
Operators receive final payment either directly from the Customer at time of trip OR through Company’s credit card or PayPal twenty-four (24) hours after completed trip per standard processing times. Operators requesting check payment will be mailed the full trip payment one (1) day after the completed trip (an additional fee of $45 will be incurred for this payment method). When receiving payment from Company, Operators decide which payment method they would like to receive payout upon registering with the Site.
Operators list available trips on the Site at a price determined by them, along with noting any required local sales tax(es) to be collected by Operator. Company is not obligated to determine whether taxes apply and is not responsible to collect, remit, or report any applicable taxes. Operators are solely responsible for determining (I) Your applicable tax reporting requirements, and (II) the taxes that should be included and collected or obligations relating to applicable taxes. Operator is solely responsible for collecting and remitting to the relevant authority any taxes included or received by Customer. Company does not remit taxes to applicable taxing authorities. Operators are not agents or employees of the Company, nor is Company a co-operator with any listing.
Company may become aware of a Customer’s attempt to conduct a transaction with an unauthorized or fraudulent payment method. We will prevent or assist in avoiding such transactions, if known to us, but assume no liability or responsibility to do so. And whenever possible, we will make every effort to inform Operators of any such actual or suspected activity.
Any payment to the Operator by the Company will be repaid within 7 days to the Company should the Operator not be able to perform their services for the Customer for any reason (except for a Customer’s default), if the Company has had to refund all or a portion of the trip payment back to the Customer. Operator’s failure to timely refund such amounts to Company will allow Company to pursue every legal remedy for full repayment from the Operator.
If a customer cancels a booking and violates the Operator’s cancellation policy, the Operator will receive the customer’s deposit. Cancellation payouts will be sent to Operator via Check, Operator must provide a mailing address within 7 days of the cancellation to be eligible for payment.
By purchasing a trip, the Customer agrees to the cancellation and no-show policy of the Operator and to any of Operator’s additional terms that may apply. If there is a discrepancy between the Operator's private cancellation policy and that stated on their FishAnywhere listing, the one stated on the listing applies. Each Operator shares their cancellation policy on their listing page. In the event of a trip cancellation, a refund will be issued (if applicable) per the Operator’s cancellation policy minus any credit card transaction fees incurred by the Company. Customer deposit is refundable for any cancellations made 30 days or more before trip date, or cancellations due to weather or medical emergencies. Customers are encouraged to read each Operator’s cancellation policy thoroughly before requesting a trip. Neither the Company nor its affiliates shall offer or pay refunds or discounts for any missed or unused trips by the Customer’s own fault.
Operators have sole responsibility for the safety of all people onboard the trip; in the event that the trip is no longer safe due to, but not limited to, weather or failure of machinery or equipment, Operator has the right cancel the trip in whole or in part. Operator may also offer alternative arrangements if available; Customer has the right to accept alternative arrangement in place of trip already purchased; or decline an alternate trip and receive a refund of the cost of the trip paid by a Customer.
A refund will also be issued to the Customer if an Operator is a no-show. An Operator no-show is subject to review process, with possible removal of the non-compliant Operator from the Site. Any payment to the Operator by the Company will be repaid within 7 days to the Company should the Operator not be able to perform their services for any reason (except for a Customer’s default), and if the Company has had to refund all or a portion of the trip payment back to the Customer. Operator’s failure to timely refund such amounts to Company will allow Company to pursue every legal remedy for full repayment from the Operator.
If any dispute arises regarding the transaction process or cancellation policies, submit a claim with our Customer Service Department, and we will work diligently to resolve any issues. If within 90 days the claim is not resolved, you may seek arbitration as referred to in this Agreement.
OPERATOR’S RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any Operator whom you elect to do business with including, but not limited to, cancellation policies and compliance with the Operator’s rules and restrictions regarding fares, products, or services.

Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other.
C. Binding Arbitration.
If you and Company are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or Company may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT WHEREAS A JURY TRIAL MIGHT BE AVAILABLE. Arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website adr.org.

Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Company will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Orange County, Florida.
