The seafood will be packed fresh or frozen and kept cold by ice packaging. Your seafood is placed in a sturdy, reusable Styrofoam cooler, that cooler is placed inside of a corrugated box for extra strength. All shipments are dropped off and need to be unpacked upon receipt. The seafood should be placed either in the refrigerator, freezer or prepared. Therefore, you must notify the person that is receiving the package, if this is a gift. This should not be a surprise.

*** NOTE - Inclement Weather ***

Each shipping company currently has an "Act Of God" clause for any delays due to weather and all shipping orders are still billed at full price. Once an order is shipped from our location, as agreed, we can not be responsible for your order should the shipping company not deliver it as scheduled. Please keep in mind that by the time the package leaves us we have paid our supplier for the product and we will be billed from the shipping company for the full amount of shipping charges. It is the customer's responsibility to take into account the weather forecasts for their local destination area as well as the delivery path from our Pensacola, Florida location to their destination and make their purchases accordingly.
