Shared Expense Trips in Orange Beach
A shared expense trip or walk on charter is an option for those who don't want to be on a crowded party boat or do not have the budget for a premier private charter. A shared expense trip is where you join others to fill the charter boat to capacity. It is like a private charter, but you are paired up with people you do not know.
The cost of a shared expense fishing charter depends on the length of the trip you want. It is based on a per person rate. This number is usually based on taking the private charter cost and dividing it between everyone on the boat. This way, the price per person is not that much.
The most popular shared expense trip is the 6 hour. The 8, 10 and 12 hour trip is popular, but are for more serious anglers. The longer the trip you want to go on, you need to give the booking office more time to try and get more people signed up. You are more likely to get a 6 hour trip than the longer trip because of it's popularity.
