Deposit and Cancellation Policy

A deposit is required on all fishing guide bookings. These deposits are non-refundable.

We understand that from time to time “stuff” happens but this is our livelihood and we pay the bills by keeping the boats full and on the water. Cancellations must be made 15 days before the date of the trip. When you cancel with at least 15 days’ notice we’ll hold the deposit and apply it to another date in the same calendar year.

If you have to cancel a trip with less than 15 days’ notice the deposit is forfeited.

If you cancel less than 72 hours before your fishing trip start time for weekday trips or don’t show up for your fishing trip at the booked date and time the total fee is $450 ($100 deposit plus an additional $350 charge). Your card will be charged $350 in addition to the initial $100 deposit for weekdays.

Deposits are non-refundable unless your trip is canceled by Lance’s Guide Service. Decisions on canceling due to weather are at THE SOLE DISCRETION of Lance’s Guide Service and the fishing guides. If it’s safe to fish we’ll fish, this includes the weather being cold, slight rain chances, wind, etc, we’ll fish! We want everyone to be comfortable and have a good time but cancellations due to weather are 100% our decision. If it’s unsafe we’ll cancel otherwise we’ll fish and these decisions are at our discretion!
