Charter Boats in San Fransisco that take you shark diving?
Content:I hear you can charter a boat in SF for around 2K and they will take you out by Angel Island where the Great Whites are and let you go down in a cage and photograph them and take pictures.Best answer:There are no great white sharks to be seen around Angel Island. mostly because they aren’t there and also because the water is so murky, you wouldn’t see anything until it was too late or gone. the Farallon Islands however are one of the worlds’ centers of great white activity. they are about 26 miles out to sea offshore from the Golden Gate.try these guys:http://www.ecophotoexplorers.com/GreatWh…The waters offshore of the Golden Gate can be some of the most ‘exciting’ to go boating in.
How much do fishing charter boats cost?Content:For school we have to set up a business of our choice. Obviously its made up, but we need to give prices and i have no idea how much they cost. help please!Best answer:I think that’s part of the process…….thinking about “how much to charge for your service……..think cost and profit. Because fuel prices are so unstable, most fishing boat captain’s now quote so much a day plus fuel. or if it’s a “head boat” they change prices frequently. On the Chesapeake Bay prices run from $100 per person to $1500 for the boat (5 to 6 fishermen) plus fuel for about 6 hours. I hope this helps.
Sydney Harbour cruises and charter boats – which is the best one for 20 people to cruise Sydney Harbour?
Content:I’m going to Sydney next month. There are a zillion charter boats it seems. I want a really good one for a business function for 20 people. Must be impeccable and have good food and service.Best answer:That’s easy. the company with the best boats, best service, best crew and hands-down best website is Flagship Cruises. they have some amazing boats. Check out the Cambria on their site – replica of a 1928-style gentlemans cruiser – been featured in magazines. Pretty expensive though. Commissioner II is another good one – I took a cruise on that – its an old restored timber boat – very classy.
Content:If you are the owner-operator of a charter yacht based in the UK, and a UK citizen yourself, specialising in cross-ocean, international trips, can you legally carry a firearm onboard?
(Providing you were licensed and the firearm was legal and it’s safe was inspected).
I realise it’s Hollywood but in all the films the Captain of any sized charter boat seems to have some sort of firearm stowed away- presuming you had a license, is there actually anything worong with this?Best answer:Why would you want to carry a firearm.if you were attacked by pirates then you would need a small armoury to fight them off with. I know people that have been attacked and the pirates used assault rifles.
Plus as you enter another country there is a pile of paper work that you need to fill in. I have worked on private yachts that carry all the equipment for clay pigeon shooting but the guns were hired in what ever country we were in at the time.
What are the best charter boats for fishing in Cozumel?
Content:We are going to Cozumel in a couple of weeks, and love to billfish. I know it is nearing the end of the season, but thought we could give it a try. any suggestions on some good ones boat captains there?Best answer:We use Cha Cha Cha dive shop every year, they have also done fishing trips by boat for many years. excellent, ethical owner, small fast boats, good boat captains. Located at Calle 7 Sur, not even 1/2 block off the main road (Rafael E. Melgar). Watch for the mural on the 2nd floor, their entryway and office are on street level between souvenir shops.
Does anyone know of a cheap way to get from 1 island to the next in Hawaii? are there charter boats that run?
Content:Does any one know of a cheap way to get from one island to the next in Hawaii? (like day trips) is there some kind of charter boats that run all day transporting people back and forth? and one more question if there is, about how long would it take to go to Maui lets say from Kaui? etc..etc.. Thanks so much for your help!!Best answer:The cheapest way right now is probably going through one of the three interisland airlines. There is an airline war going on right now so you can get a one way ticket as low as $19 (average $39).
I’m not sure if there are charter boats but they may be more costly since it’s a high risk and the distance it has to travel. plus going from a certain island to another island can be very bumpy (rough water) and will take about 3-4 (maybe 5) hours (especially from Maui to Kauai). we are suppose to have a Superferry going between the islands but it’s not operational yet.
What is the best charter boat to book to catch swordfish in Destin Florida?
Content:Looking to book a charter fishing boat on my trip to Destin. I have always wanted to give catching swordfish a try. I know there is a lot of charter boats there. However is there a better boat to book in order to real have a great chance at landing some fish? if you know of a reputable Charter Boat Service in Destin please let me know. Thanks for your help in advance!Best answer:Backlash Charters and the Backlash Fishing Team in Destin, FL most definitely! just a couple weeks ago (April 10, 2010) I took a trip on the Backlash in Destin with my son and some friends. we all had the best time ever. Jason Mikel, the captain, and the first mate, Chris, were great! they took us to the best spots and we caught some Amberjacks and some trigger fish. they will take you on trips to do fishing in Destin with swordfish as well. they also told us that we could go on a catch and release charter trip if we wanted.
This was the first time my son and I had been deep sea fishing anywhere so it was important to us that we actually catch some fish. we were told that there were a few inexpensive charters in Destin that left you empty handed, but with the Backlash Fishing Team we came back with a lot of fish!
The first mate did a wonderful job with my son, Sean, (and me) showing us how to hold the rod, operate the reel, and pull in the big fish. what impressed me most was they allowed my son to reel in his own big Amberjacks. My son was thrilled beyond belief. I had a blast watching him and his buddy Tyler pull in the big ones and shout with excitement. of course, I was thrilled catching my own as well. After returning to the harbor, the first mate dressed our fish for us. the trip was memorable! I can’t wait to go Charter Fishing Destin again with the Backlash Fishing Team.

JULIAN BURGESS was bringing the Queen Elizabeth into Sydney Harbour under grey skies and could feel the eyes of the city on him.
”It is always a challenge coming into any harbour, but particularly this morning when we had the two Queens coming together in such a high profile way, quite close together,” Captain Burgess said.
”There were so many small water craft on the harbour; some of them we had to encourage to get out of the way.”
Advertisement: Story continues below
Not since 1941 has the harbour been graced by two such Queens. then, the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth were troop ships, calling into Sydney to take soldiers to war in Europe.
Captain Burgess’s Queen Elizabeth, 90,000 tonnes of art deco styling, carried more than 2000 passengers and 1000 crew. It boasts 10 restaurants and cafes, an 800-seat theatre and a library with more than 6000 books.
She is the smaller cousin. The Queen Mary 2, at 150,000 tonnes, led the two Cunard liners into the harbour just after 5.30am. It carried more than 2600 passengers and 1250 crew. A round-the-world ticket in a grand suite costs $267,000, though it is possible to take the 103-day journey for as little as $26,000.
The Queen Elizabeth sails for Melbourne at midday today.
The Queen Mary 2 sails for new Zealand at 5pm, and was scheduled to arrive at Lyttelton, the port for the devastated city of Christchurch, on Saturday.

Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka denies he has undermined the club’s decision to sign Juho Makela by axing the Finnish striker from his Asian Champions League squad.
Makela joined the club in December on an 18-month contract for the back-end of the A-League season and for the ACL campaign, which gets underway on Wednesday against South Korean outfit Suwon Bluewings.
However, Lavicka surprisingly did not select the 27-year-old, opting instead to hand Brazilian striker Bruno Cazarine a new 12-month deal and the final overseas player spot in the squad.
Lavicka was not aware of Makela until he arrived at the club, following a spell with Scottish team Hearts, with members of the club’s board responsible for the signing, which was made with some fanfare.
But the Czech was reluctant to pick Makela, with the big striker starting six of his eight games from the bench despite scoring two goals.
However, Lavicka, who ended any speculation about his future by signing a new one-year contract with the club last Friday, said dumping the 28-year-old had been a tough decision, but purely a football one.
“It’s unlucky for him because we have only four visa spots for the Champions League and six players, so it was a very cruel situation for us and for Makela and (Sung-Hwan) Byun,” Lavicka said.
“He was upset and disappointed but that is football, in Europe it is different, but we have to respect Asia and the rules.”
Makela’s future with the club is now very much in limbo, with the new A-League season not starting until next October and Lavicka said he will be sent out on loan to a team in Europe to keep him in shape.
However, there is a chance he could appear in the latter stages of the ACL, should Sydney progress from their group, when skipper Terry McFlynn would no longer be classed as an overseas player.
Irishman McFlynn, the club’s longest serving player and the only survivor from the inaugural season in 2005/06, became an Australian citizen eight months ago.
However, under ACL rules, he must be a citizen for at least a year to be classed as a home player.
Sydney operates in the style of many European clubs, with the coach only responsible for the team and tactics, and signings and recruitment conducted by the board.
Lavicka said he was comfortable with the current system which he worked under with Sparta Prague and Slovan Liberec in his homeland, but happy to be more hands-on when it came to player recruitment.

PUSH came to shove – quite literally – during an "intense" argument at a Kings Cross nightclub over the weekend when hunky Sydney bachelors and perennial party lads Julian Tobias and Didier Cohen almost came to blows.
Stunned onlookers watched as Tobias, owner of "theclub", and Cohen, an expat US model and DJ, exchanged insults in a screaming match at Roslyn St hotspot and celebrity haunt Beach Haus on Friday night.
It’s suspected that their mutual friend Kendal Schuler, a Chadwicks model who dates Cohen but is Tobias’ former long-term love interest, was at the centre of the dispute.
According to a well-placed insider, "tension" began bubbling early in the night, eventually hitting fever pitch when Cohen and Schuler, walking hand-in-hand, crossed paths with Tobias.
"They walked past Julian on their way to the lift and Julian just clicked it," the spy told Confidential.
"[Tobias] tried to get into the lift, and they were yelling at each other and shoving each other a bit.
"There were quite a few people in between them trying to calm it down.
"The club just stopped and watched. it was intense."
Cohen could not be contacted yesterday but a friend said they were unaware of the fracas.
"They [Cohen and Tobias] have never really clicked. Dids is a gentle giant, so he definitely avoids conflict."
Tobias, whose latest venture – a party barge called The Island – has become an A-list mecca, was not available for comment yesterday.
The one-time GQ Man of the Year nominee has long denied widespread reports that he was admitted to hospital after being involved in an altercation inside his club last year.

ELEANOR HALL: Preliminary work started today on the Barangaroo project on one of Sydney’s last remaining harbour foreshore development sites.
The $6 billion dollar development has been described as one of the most ambitious waterfront projects in Australia.
But it has been controversial from the start with debates over its name, the scope of the development and the design and size of its proposed hotel tower as Jennifer Macey reports:
JENNIFER MACEY: There are a couple of joggers and walkers heading around the harbour foreshore at the Barangaroo site in Sydney between The Rocks and Darling Harbour.
This undeveloped section of Sydney’s harbour foreshore is a 22 hectare concrete slab that used to be a car park. it juts out towards the water from the edge of the CBD.
Those that do stop to talk to The World Today aren’t sure of the scale or details of the development proposals. But they all say they want part of the site left open to the public.
VOX POP 1: I think it’s a great idea to actually do something that the public can use down here. I think you know it is actually a beautiful spot and when Patricks were here you didn’t even realise you know how nice it was.
So if they do something that everyone can use I think that’s a great thing.
VOX POP 2: they haven’t really come out with what they’re going to do yet. and hopefully they’re not just going to like put a bunch of business blocks on it because I think it’s too good a view to waste.
JENNIFER MACEY: The developers Lend Lease have now been given permission to start preparing the Barangaroo site before building can begin.
The CEO of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority John Tabart says a fence has been set up so that the foreshore walk can stay open to the public.
JOHN TABART: So Lend Lease will have access to a portion of the Barangaroo area. The foreshore walk will track around their occupation allowing the public to continue and the cyclists and joggers to continue to use the waterfront walk, albeit interrupted by the construction works in some of its perimeter.
JENNIFER MACEY: while construction work is expected to begin later this year the developers Lend Lease have had to change their concept plan due to public opposition.
The amended project will now have three rather than four office towers and the hotel tower on the edge of the water has been pushed back and lost a few stories.
The development of Sydney’s last remaining prime waterfront real estate has attracted heated debate in the city.
Community groups, town planners, even former prime minister Paul Keating have offered their suggestions for the site.
Architect Paul Berkemeier is from the firm that won the initial design competition.
PAUL BERKEMEIER: well it’s a totally different development from that which was the prize winning competition entry. and well there’s a lot more buildings that’s going to go up. and the public parklands are very much subservient to the interests of the development itself and the buildings.
JENNIFER MACEY: There’s a lot of discussion about whether or not the cruise ship terminal should be there, how high the buildings are there. What do you make of that considering it is such a significant site for Sydney?
PAUL BERKEMEIER: well unfortunately everything is really being given away. The public interest is being given away to maximise the return for the development itself, both to the developer and to the government.
So things like the cruise ship terminal which are a valuable piece of public infrastructure are being moved away because they would occupy space otherwise that could be used for development.
JENNIFER MACEY: Last week the National Trust put forward an alternative design plan which would see the cruise passenger terminal kept on the site rather than moving to another part of the harbour.
The trust’s spokesman Scott Woodcock says this design is more in line with the maritime heritage values of the former wharf.
SCOTT WOODCOCK: The best way to interpret the rich and diverse maritime heritage at Millers Point is to retain the cruise ships at Barangaroo.
And Millers Point offers the ideal location for a cruise ship berth. It’s a secure location, probably the most secure location west of the Harbour Bridge. and it’s within 750 metres of the overseas passenger terminal, so within walking distance of The Rocks and light rail will go right to the back door.
JENNIFER MACEY: Architect Paul Berkemeier says he’s lost hope that the site will be subject to significant changes.
PAUL BERKEMEIER: The decisions made to have the single proponent, the single developer, the fact that the development, the increase in the quantum of development has gone up so radically is now, I think it’s locked in.
And I think inevitably it’ll all be fast tracked so that all the commitments are there irreversible before the next state election.
ELEANOR HALL: That’s Paul Berkemeier whose architecture firm won the initial design competition for Barangaroo.

Sydney FC defender Hayden Foxe has announced his retirement from football with immediate effect.
The former Socceroos, West Ham, Leeds United and Ajax centre-half, informed his teammates of his decision at training on Tuesday and will not feature in the Sky Blues' Asian Champions League campaign.
The 33-year-old joined Sydney FC midway through the 2009/10 A-League season and went on to score a penalty in the grand final win over the Melbourne Victory.
“everyone has had an impact in some way on my career from people behind the scenes to coaches and of course the players. I want to thank them for that”, Foxe said.
“it has been a rollercoaster ride. the highs have been really high while the lows were low but I wouldn't change anything.”
“I have made a lot of great friends in my time in football and I will have those forever.
“I will enjoy some time away from the game in the short term but I have aspirations of being a professional coach and that is what I will pursue.”
Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka said Foxe would be sorely missed.
“Hayden is a true professional, a great leader and an experienced player that helps the team every time he is at training, in a game and even in personal situations. I will miss him,” Lavicka said.
