KEY WEST, Fla. — In lieu of a rocky start to 2009, Almost There Charters sees the tide beginning to turn. As a result, they have assembled three different fishing bailout plans to thank their current customers for their continued loyalty and to welcome new customers to rejuvenate their spirit. Co-owners and captains, Joe Pettit and Scott Coogle, have owned and operated Almost There Charters for more than 20 years. Just recently have their customers expressed concern over the economy and explained their need to cut back vacation time. In response, they have taken action.
“Offering these fishing bailout packages is our way of thanking the local and tourist community for allowing us to continue to work and play in paradise,” Pettit says. “We do what we love and love what we do and want to share that passion with our customers. It’s been a rough year and we all need a break.”
Almost There Charters has designed three packages to lift the spirit. One package provides two free hours of bonus fishing time; another offers three trips – the first two are regular price, but the third is only $50! And, what makes this one even more special is that the $50 is donated to Snowball Express, a charity that provides support to children of fallen military heroes. Finally, two paid fishing trips equal a $100 credit towards a hotel room with an additional $100 for every trip thereafter.
