Florida Keys Charter boats

Frequently Asked Questions and Policies

What should I leave behind?
No illegal drugs. There is a ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DRUGS per USCG rules. Any use of illicit drugs will terminate the charter and full charter price will be retained and the Coast Guard will be notified, No Bananas, its considered bad luck. I have a strict " No Bad Attitude Policy", Good Karma is all about "Good Karma".

How much should I tip?
A 20% gratuity is greatly appreciated. Tipping in cash is appreciated.

Take Every Possible Precaution to Prevent Seasickness

Highly recommend taking a motion sickness pill, such as Dramamine the night before you go to bed, then in the morning before you get on board. All the local pharmacies carry them, as well as patches for advanced cases. It needs to be in your blood system. If you take Dramamine right before you get on the boat it will do nothing for you, but make you sick and very sleepy. The directions on the box do not work!


We offer the best tackle available on the market today to our clients for use on the charter. We have limited space for extra rods/reels so please ask before bringing your own tackle. Clients are responsible for payment of rods and reels if they dropped in the water due to mishandling or negligence.

How do I book a trip with you?

Once you have decided on a date(s) and type of trip you’d like, you can call us at 305-619-2126, or email us at goodkarmaryan@gmail.com for availability.

How do I pay for the trip?

We prefer cash. We are unable to accept personal checks. If you wish to pay by credit card, you are welcomed to do so.

What happens if the weather is bad?
Sometimes fishing in not so ideal weather conditions can help the fishing. Safety is our #1 priority and we cannot control the weather. We will be in touch with you if your trip needs to be changed.

Do I need a fishing license to fish on your boat?
No. All passengers are covered under our recreational charter boat license.

What do I need to bring for my trip?

Sun block, hat, sunglasses and light colored clothes are suggested for the summer months. Warmer clothes in the winter months. Any food and beer, wine, liquor, or soft drinks you would like for duration of the trip. We highly recommend bringing extra water; especially during the peak of summer in Florida Keys. Please wear comfortable sneakers, rubber fishing boots or deck shoes that won’t be slippery on the boat. I do not recommend sandles as all fish have "teeth".

Can I bring alcoholic beverages aboard?
You are welcome to bring beer, wine and liquor and consume in moderation. We have a cooler on the boat for your beverages.

What time do we leave?

If you are a morning person and/or like to get back to you can have the rest of the day the early morning trip is for you. If you like to sleep in a bit and/or want to see the sunset the later morning trip is for you. There is flexibility so please just ask us about it.
