Provisional Cancellation Policies during the Covid-19 Pandemic (only for trips scheduled through Oct 31, 2020)
Any cancellations over 90 days out are still subject to our standard policy, which is a full refund less a 20% cancellation fee. For any cancellations less than 90 days of the trip we are offering a provisional cancellation policy to provide more flexibility to guests while the outbreak persists, which is a 100% credit of payment towards any trips booked later in 2020, 2021 or 2022. If you rebook the identical itinerary, there will be no price adjustments even if that package experiences future rate increases. Guests may also choose to apply the credit towards a trip of higher value and pay the difference. You can also use your credit to transfer to another individual as a gift certificate or to a future trip.

Strictly Catch and Release Fishing

* We understand that you are on vacation and may run late from time to time. Our guides will wait for you for 30 minutes from your scheduled start time. If we have not heard from you after 30 minutes past your scheduled start time we will have no choice but to leave. Our guides are on schedules where they have multiple trips in a day and have to stay on their schedules. Thank you for your consideration.
