Fisher Guiding Cancellation and Refund Policies

These cancellation policies exclude trips cancelled due to weather deemed unsafe by the guide (such as dangerous water conditions and craft advisories), or a force majeure event (events or occurrences beyond the guide's reasonable control which make it illegal, impossible, or commercially impracticable to perform guiding obligations). If a trip must be canceled due to weather or a force majeure event, and a new date is unable to be arranged between guide and user, Fisher Guiding must be informed by either party to issue a refund to the user.

User Cancellation

  • If a user cancels a trip 30 days or more from the date of the trip, they are refunded their full deposit payment.
  • If less than 30 days from the trip date, a User can receive a full refund of the deposit if rescheduling the trip for another date or if their Guide agrees to enable a cancellation for no charge.
  • If it is less than 30 days out but greater than 7 days from the trip, and a User is not attempting to reschedule their trip date or the Guide is unwilling to enable a free cancellation, the 50% deposit is forfeited.
  • If a user cancels within 7 days of the trip, and a User is not attempting to reschedule their trip date or the Guide is unwilling to enable a free cancellation, the User will still be charged for the full cost of the trip.
  • If there is a complaint about cancellation from either party, notice must be given to Fisher Guiding within 24 hours of the cancellation.
  • Fisher Guiding will mediate when necessary, and has the final say in all disputes.

Guide Cancellation

  • Note that the below policies relate to cancellations initiated by the Guide, not to requests made by Users for Guides to Enable Cancellation (see above).
  • Guides are allowed 1 cancellation every 6 months without financial penalty excluding cancellations within 7 days of the trip.
  • For all other cancellations, the guide is charged a $50 fee if the cancellation occurs more than 7 days from the date of the trip.
  • For cancellations that occur within 7 days of the trip, the guide is charged $100.
  • A guide's calendar will stay blocked and they won't be able to accept another reservation for the same dates of the canceled reservation.
  • If a guide cancels a trip, the user is refunded 100% of the money they paid.
