Guests may keep certain species of fish and there are several restaurants inland that will prepare your catch for a reasonable fee. Please note that we do not allow you to take any barracuda.

What is your cancellation policy?
Due to the seasonal nature and limited availability of our tours we can not provide refunds for tours cancelled within 2 weeks of the tour date. We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover yourself in the event that you must cancel your trip. Cancellations received before the 2 week period will be issued a refund for any deposit paid minus a $10 USD per person handling fee. However, if your tour is cancelled due to weather and we are unable to accommodate you before the end of your trip we will issue you a refund.
