Why is fuel not included?
You only pay for the fuel your trip consumes. Some trips may be a shorter distance than others, therefore using less fuel. Delph Fishing Charters is focused on putting you on the fish.
Other charter companies promote their “no fuel surcharge” policy, however that is because they know they will never go over a certain distance and fuel is already priced in. In short, the less fuel that they burn, the more money they profit, encouraging them to run less and stay local. Some will even go so far as stating “beware of fuel surcharge charters” as if it is a bad thing, when in fact it is in your best interest to only pay for the fuel you use, allowing your Captain to remain focused on the quality of production and your fishing experience. We believe that this business practice sets Delph Fishing apart from the rest of the charter fishing industry.
Our reputation has been based on integrity and the highest quality fishing experience available today. Delph Fishing Charters does not make money on fuel. Speak to the Captain if you have fuel budget constraints or contact us for a specific flat rate quote.
