Payment, Cancellation, and Rescheduling

To confirm a booking, we require full payment of the guiding fee upfront, and payments must be made within 7 days of the scheduled guiding experience. If you need to cancel your confirmed guiding experience after paying in full, a 50% refund is available only if you cancel by NOON, at least two (2) days ahead of your scheduled guiding. No refunds will be issued for no-shows on the day of the guiding experience. In case of inclement weather or adverse conditions that preclude an outing, we will attempt to reschedule within your time limits, subject to guide availability. These policies are in place to ensure a fair and efficient process for both participants and guides.
