Listing your boat on FishingBooker is an easy, 5-step process.
We encourage you to list all your boats on FishingBooker under separate profiles. Whether you're skippering a 60ft liveaboard or a sturdy panga, it’s absolutely free to list all your vessels, and create as many boat profiles as you wish. When you're ready to start welcoming anglers, you can publish your boat for the world to see in a single mouse click.
Here are a few tips to help you create the best profile for your charter and get more booking requests.
Description and amenities
Anglers often search for vessels that will meet their specific needs, so creating an original, detailed listing, as well as outlining all the amenities you offer helps attract exactly the kind of anglers that can benefit from your service.
When telling your story, make sure you answer all the important questions: what kind of fishing gear are you working with? Is there a specific fishing technique/fish species you specialize in? What are the boat's specifications? Try to include as many helpful details about the charter itself, the Captain and crew, and, of course, the fishing itself. This is also the place to mention any extra services that you might offer to your guests.
Adding and later editing your location couldn't be easier: just enter your address (boat location) and drag the map to a specific point. That's it! It's also very important to offer detailed instructions on how to reach your boat in writing.
Pictures attract customers, so the more the merrier. You can go ahead and upload up to 18 images- make sure to include high-quality photos of the boat, its cabin (if it has one), the tackle you use and most importantly, your previous clients smiling with the days' catch!
Pricing and availability
You know your boat and your schedule better than anyone, so we let you decide on the prices of the packages you create and ask you to update your calendar regularly, so your prospecting customers always know when it’s available to charter.
You're also free to set custom prices for overnights or liveaboards (with a minimum number of days). The trip prices can be tailored either per person or an entire group, and you can name your packages any way you feel is appropriate. It's crucial to update your calendar often (once a week) and try to be as clear as possible with the names of your packages.
