What’s your cancellation policy?
Your booking is non-refundable, however we’re happy to transfer it to a different date if your circumstances change. Please note that transfers will not be accepted within 14 days of the fishing trip. Should the fishing trip need to be cancelled or postponed due to weather, rough seas or other circumstances beyond our control, you (or your group contact person if you’re not the organiser) will be notified by SMS and/or email. We will endeavour to transfer your booking to a mutually agreed alternative date (subject to availability). ‘No shows’ cannot be transferred or refunded.
What’s a Spectator Fare?
A spectator fare can be purchased with every full paying ticket. A spectator can share the rod of the full paying individual, but will not be provided with their own rod. A limited number of spectator fares are available each trip – contact us for more information and details on how to book.
How do I pay?
The quickest and easiest way to book a trip or purchase a voucher is to do so online. Our online booking system is available 24/7 and accepts Visa and Mastercard (incl debit cards).
