The prices at my company are $75pp for a 5hr, $110 for an 8 hr, and $140 for a 12 hr. All the party boat companies in Port Aransas are pretty close on price.
The limit for red snapper in federal waters is 2 per person, and in state waters it is 4 per person. The federal snapper season for for-hire boats is anticipated to be June 1-july 19, but that is subject to change, and we are waiting for the final ruling. During federal snapper season, in federal waters, it is almost a guarantee to catch a limit, every trip.
My company and another have a boat without federal permits on it, that targets state water snapper the rest of the year. The boat must remain within 9 miles from shore, and you can retain 4 per person on these trips. The only downside to state water fishing , is shallow water fish can become finicky, and days come from time to time where the boat does not get a limit.
Yes, we run 24 hr trips that time of year, and you can keep a 2 day limit of snapper on those trips
