Capt. Fulbright offers tanker charters 5 days a week (Monday thru Friday) April thru October. Note: we never go out on weekends--no exceptions.
Tanker charters are available for 1-4 people per charter. Note: 1 person charters can be paired with another individual to defer costs, if requested and available. You must meet the following criteria to be placed on the Standby List:
The benefits of being a standby passenger include:
Full day charters are offered. Note: Full-day charters average 6 hours.
Charter fees will include surfboards upon request, ice, fuel (up to 30 gallons) and water. Note: it is the client's sole responsibility to provide their food and snacks for the charter.
Note: We are requiring each group to submit a window of up to 3 days' flexibility on expeditions. Each charter is allowed to reserve a Monday-Wednesday three-day in succession window or a Wednesday-Friday three-day in succession window. Please indicate your three-day choices in the form below. Your choices must fall on the Monday-Wednesday schedule or the Wednesday-Friday schedule.
A $200.00 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. Note: a minimum of a 24 hour notice is required by the client (s) to re-schedule or the deposit and charter is forfeited.
The decision to initiate (launch) or continue the charter is strictly at the Captain's discretion and his decision alone. Note: this decision is based on the water conditions, weather and the safety of the passengers, the vessel and it's Captain.
You must be in good physical condition and have intermediate or better surfing skills before booking a tanker surf charter. Note: a tanker surf charter is physically demanding and challenging and not for the beginner!
You must agree to and abide by all rules of the tanker surf charter. Note: Passengers are not allowed to bring any illegal drugs or alcohol on board the vessel. No GPS devices or bananas are allowed on board the vessel!
Our Captain and crew (if applicable) work very hard before, during and after our tanker surf charters to provide our clients with the best possible experience. A 10 - 15% gratuity is customary in this industry and greatly appreciated.
Each participant in a Tanker Surf Charter is required to complete and submit the booking page form. In addition, once a charter is booked, each participant will be required to read and acknowledge (through e-signature) that they’ve understood the liability waiver. After the booking form is submitted and waiver form is signed, one member of the charter group will be required to pay the $200.00 deposit (payable via PayPal) to reserve the date specified by Tanker Surf Charters. All booking dates are on a first come, first serve basis and only the $200.00 deposit can be a guarantee to hold that particular date. It is completely at Tanker Surf Charters discretion to determine the date that will give each participant the best opportunity to catch tanker waves. In addition to submitting the e-signature on the waiver page of this Web site, each charter participant will be required to give Tanker Surf Charters a printed hard copy of the signed form before entry into the boat. You can download and print the waiver here.
One member of your group charter is required to submit a $200.00 deposit once you receive a date confirmation from Capt Fulbright, in order to lock in your charter date and your place on the vessel. The balance of the charter will be payable in cash the morning of departure. Tanker Surf Charters does not accept checks, credit cards or debit cards for the outstanding balance.
One final note: Tanker Surf Charters reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
