Default Venice tuna charter

Saw a few months back someone mentioned a good charter out of Venice for around 500$ a person. Thinking about booking one later this fall, any suggestions on reasonable priced charters?

Not sure about who that was but Capt Eddie Burger is one of the best ones over there without a doubt. He's also a forum member.

500.00 a person times that by five or six plus 250.00 for tip to deckhand and then lodging.
Either way I did it and loved it, btw I got a one 90-100 lbs YFT and one 60 lbs AJ.

Yep, we went with Captain Eddie, well actually on his Twin Vee with Mike Pittman as captain.

There were six of us.

The cost was $500 per person.

That included travel fuel for two vehicles to and from Venice, two nights lodging in the Venice Marina Cabins. Food while at the cabin.
And of course the split on the charter with tip and the fuel for the charter.

We traveled one day, hung in the marina when we got there. Fished the next day, cleaned the fish and had a celebration of lots of tuna, and traveled home on the third day.

Here is the link to the thread from our trip:

So are you saying it was 500 a person and you had 5-6 people or it cost you 2500+ a person?

No actually the prices are about the same. When we went, fuel was not included.
Here is the link for pricing.

Charter $1800
Tip $360
Travel Fuel $ 300
Cabin $330
Food $200
Incidentials $200
Total $3,190.00
Divided by 6 = $531.67

So maybe it went up by $30.
Each person was responsible for their own beverages.
