Is FishingBooker a scam or a legit company?

Hi there! Just wanted to jump in with some more information.

FishingBooker is not a scam. It's the world's largest service for finding and booking fishing trips online and has helped people find their dream fishing trip since 2013. The company is registered in Norfolk, Virginia and operates all over the world (in 107 countries and counting).

Our aim is to help people go fishing, and we only make money when we succeed in this goal. We don't charge any additional service fees and only receive income once a trip goes ahead. If trips get cancelled, the full deposit gets returned to the customer or the captain, depending on the circumstances of the cancellation and the captain's cancellation policy.

We work hard to portray an accurate representation of the charter operators who list with us. We review their licensing information to verify that they're legitimate, and provide a platform for customers who fished with them to leave verified reviews. Our system then tracks the experience captains provide and the better their record of taking people on enjoyable fishing trips, the more visibility they'll get on our platform.

If you have any questions or feedback for us, you're welcome to contact us anytime here or on our website. We'd love to hear from you!

Scam. Fishingbooker is a rip off. Nothing but trouble. No customer service and they charge your credit card. Look out.

SCAM. The reviews on their site are edited to make all the captains sound better. Totally worthless site

Possibly a scam. They are hoping you cancel your booking so they get to keep your $100 deposit
