*Due to the wildly fluctuating prices of gasoline, gas surcharges may apply to any ocean trip particularly offshore. However, this will always be discussed well in advance of departure and, if applicable, will be applied in the fairest possible manner.

If you would like to pay using your credit card, WDGS has a wireless terminal that can be used at the dock upon completion of the charter.

If you book a charter with us, we require a $150 deposit. Deposits can be made using your Visa, Mastercard, or American Express credit card over the phone or by personal check that can be mailed to Capt Tom Roller - please contact for address.

WaterDog Guide Service has a two week cancellation policy. – Should you decide to cancel within two weeks of your desired date, you will forfeit your deposit if I am not able to schedule another charter for that same day. Cancellations outside of two weeks will be issued a credit for a future trip at your convenience. If weather forces the captain to cancel the trip – the trip can either be rescheduled or the deposit refunded.

If deposits are not received within 7 days of booking the charter, we reserve the right to cancel the date without notice.

No Shows will be charged the full amount of the trip

Gift Certificates and all trips purchased through charity and conservation banquets (aka, CCA) have a 1 year expiration date from time of purchase


Water Dog Guide Service recommends you book your trips early as the best dates often fill-up fast. But feel free to inquire about last-minute opening, if I can not take you fishing, I will find a professional guide who can. Fishing on the weekdays is typically less crowded and thus more productive.

Corporate trips, combined tour and fishing trips - we do it all!
