River City Charters Rates
Our standard fishing charters are offered in four (4) hour, six (6) hour, or eight (8) hour trips. We also offer custom trips for anglers wanting more fishing time, or those who want to fish multiple days.
In order to promote sustainability and the preservation of our fishery and eco system, River City Charter’s captains predominantly practice “catch and release”. However, our captains are happy to accommodate clients that wish to harvest enough legal fish for the number of passengers onboard so they can enjoy a “fresh catch dinner”.
In addition to fishing charters, we also offer dolphin and eco tours, sunset cruises, and water taxi service to and from the Fort George Sandbar, St. Augustine, Amelia Island, Jaguars Football games, or any one of our area’s waterfront dining options, for up to six (6) passengers. Contact us today to schedule a custom charter.
*Please note that pricing does not include Captain gratuity. It is customary in our industry to tip 15-20% of the total trip rate.
Four (4) Hour Trip*
$450 for two (2) anglers, plus $50 for each additional angler up to four (4) persons. Deposit of $100 due at the time of booking.
This is our most popular option. This trip usually involves a morning or afternoon of inshore using live and/or artificial baits, and spin-cast and/or sight casting techniques. Depending on the season, the most common species landed during these four (4) hour trips include redfish, trout, black drum, flounder, sheep’s head, tarpon, and others.
Six (6) Hour Trip*
$550 for two (2) anglers, plus $50 for each additional angler up to four (4) persons. Deposit of $150 due at the time of booking.
This popular option will also involve a morning or afternoon of inshore fishing using the same techniques as our four (4) charter, but also allows our captain additional time to locate the best possible fishing for that day or to possibly target multiple species. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this option may also allow our captain to “run the beach” or to “spot lock” over one of Jacksonville’s many near shore reefs and/or wrecks for a variety of other species including Sharks, Cobia, Red Snapper, Black Sea Bass, African Pompano and the occasional Grouper.
Eight (8) Hour Trip*
$650 for two anglers, plus $50 for each additional angler up to four (4) persons. Deposit of $200 due at the time of booking.
This option is for the serious angler. This is a full-day fishing trip using similar techniques as above, but more time equals more opportunities to catch fish. Moreover, depending on the season and weather conditions, this option may also allow the captain to give you the best of both worlds, an inshore and near-shore experience, or just more time of either, depending on your preference or what is biting.
