Deposit and Cancelation Policy
We require a 50% deposit per guide, per day to guarantee your reservation. The balance of your trip is due 14 days prior to your trip date. The credit card used to book your trip will be automatically charged for the balance unless you have made prior arrangements to use a different payment method. Trips booked within 14 days of your fishing date require full payment at time of booking.
In the event that you have to cancel your reservation with us:
- Your deposit is fully refundable if the cancellation is received more than 30 days prior to your scheduled trip date.
- Cancellations made inside of 30 days prior to your trip will result in the loss of your deposit.
- Payments on trips that are canceled with less than 14 day’s advance notice are not refundable.
- If your schedule changes, rebooking a trip within the same calendar year is possible with no penalty outside of 14 days of your original scheduled date. A $100.00 rebooking fee will be charged for any scheduling changes made within 14 days of the original trip date so long as your rescheduled date is within the same calendar year, otherwise a full cancellation will be in effect.
* Please note that we cannot control the weather and therefore trips canceled due to inclement weather will be charged the cancellation fee. Please watch the weather and come prepared with appropriate clothing and gear for your day on the water.
