Fishing Licenses

Mutineer Charters has a ONE-DAY charter boat license that covers residents and nonresidents on the vessel during for-hire charters. If you purchase a license through WDFW verify it covers salt water and has all the necessary tags and punch cards.

Who We Are

Mutineer Charters is a “booking agent” in Westport, Washington. All of the boats are independently owned by licensed skippers and have been Coast Guard inspected each vessel has all the latest safety and fishing equipment. Our skippers have decades of experience with qualified deckhands to help assist with your catch when needed.


Deck hands work for tips and contribute their time before, during and after your trip to ensure you have a memorable experience. Gratuities are greatly appreciated and are not part of the boats fillet fees. If you enjoy your experience, the industry standard is 20-25% gratuity.

The Fish

Deckhands on board will fillet your catch for a nominal fee. This varies amongst the vessels and with each trip type. Your fish is returned to you in thick plastic bags and ready to be put on ice. Local establishments are available for vacuum packing, shipping or storing your catch. Let you deckhand know if you prefer to take the fish home whole.

Rods & Reels

All gear rental and bait are provided in the cost of the trip. Customer agrees to pay full replacement cost of any rod/reel/tackle or other property of Mutineer Charters lost overboard due to negligence, accidental drop, or other misfortune.
You are welcome to bring your own gear but please check with the skipper on line restrictions. Mutineer Charters and/or their affiliates are not liable for loss or damage of customer owned gear.

Drugs & Alcohol

Hard alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs are strictly forbidden aboard the vessel. Glass bottles are not allowed on board. Canned beer is allowed. If you choose to bring beverages, please choose cans or re-fillable canteens/bottles and pack out what you bring aboard. Drinking alcohol prior to your charter is a bad idea and can contribute to an unfavorable experience.

What to Bring

  • Lunch for the day, snacks and beverages, a small cooler is acceptable.
  • Rubber boots or waterproof nonskid shoes.
  • Water resistant jacket or full foul weather gear pending wet/windy weather.
  • We suggest to dress in layers. Taking off layers as the day warms up.
  • The boats all carry potable water, but bottled water is a good idea.

Note: Being on the water tends to make you hungry and exposure to sun along with the constant motion can dehydrate you. Prepare yourself by adequately hydrating prior to your trip. Avoid alcohol which can worsen dehydration and lead to seasickness. There are no refunds for seasickness. Consider motion sickness medication if prone (for adequate effectiveness it’s advised to take the night before and one hour before leaving dock)
