Policies


  1. LODGING POLICIES
     Reservation/Deposit/Cancellation/Refund Policy:  Lodging reservations require a 50% deposit that is collected and applied on a per night basis.  The balance is to be paid upon check-in.  If cancellations are made more than 60 days before your reservation date, a full refund of your deposit less a 5% of reservation service charge will be returned.  If cancellations are made 30 to 60 days of your reservation the deposit will be transferred and applied to a future trip later that year or the following season or for retail purchases of anything in our stores or website or the Orvis catalog.  If the cancellation is made within 30 days of your reservation, the deposit is forfeited.

    SPECIAL JUNE & JULY CANCELLATION POLICY:  There are no refunds or transfers of any kind for reservation made for the months of June and July if cancellations or changes are made within 60 days of the June or July reservation.

    We operate in all safe weather and water conditions, therefore inclement weather or water or non-desirable fishing conditions are not reasons to cancel or receive a refund.  Often times “bad weather” is the best fishing weather!  Please keep this in mind.  Failure to show or failure to cancel in a timely manner will result in your being liable for the entire cost of the reservation and our resultant collection of that amount from you.  All reservations and rentals are secured with a valid credit card. Travel insurance is highly recommended. Some examples:  Signature Travel Insurance by IMG/Global Rescue,   Allianz Travel Insurance, CPO Sportsmans Travel Insurance, Travel Guard.  CrossCurrents has no affiliation to any of these companies, though, we are a member of MOGA (Guide/Outfitter Trade Association) and they have a pretty good partnership with Global Rescue, so that’s the one we would recommend considering first.  We are providing these names and links for your convenience. We have no affiliation with any of the insurance companies, nor do we endorse any of these companies but we highly recommend travel insurance on bigger trips (like the Smith or groups sizes larger than 8).

    We understand that unforeseen situations can lead to cancellations and we reserve the right to make refund decisions on a case-by-case basis.


  2. GUIDED TRIP POLICIES
     Reservation/Deposit/Cancellation/Refund Policy:
    Guided trips require a 50% deposit that is collected and applied on a per guide day basis.  Your Guide Day(s) will not be confirmed until deposits are received.  If cancellations are made more than 30 days before your reservation, a full refund of your deposit less a $15 per Guide Day reserved service charge will be returned.  If cancellations are made between 8 and 30 days of your reserved date(s) your deposit will be applied to a future trip later that year or the following season or for retail purchases of anything in our stores or the Orvis catalog.  If cancellations are made within 8 days of your reserved date(s) the entire deposit will be forfeited and a large portion of that will be used to pay to the scheduled Guide(s) in lieu of lost wages and expenses incurred.  If we are unable to provide your reserved Guide service due to unforeseen events, your entire deposit will be refunded and we will grovel for your forgiveness.  We understand that unforeseen situations can lead to cancellations and we reserve the right to make refund decisions on a case-by-case basis.

    SPECIAL JUNE & JULY CANCELLATION POLICY:  There are no refunds or transfers of any kind for reservations made for the months of June and July if cancellations or changes are made within 30 days of the June or July reservation.

    Special SMITH RIVER Reservation/Deposit/Cancellation/Refund Policy:  Smith River Guided Trips require a 50% deposit and dates will not be confirmed until the deposit is received.  The remaining balance is due by April 1st of the year of your trip.  The deposit and full payments are non-refundable.  We operate in all safe weather and water conditions, therefore inclement weather or water or non-desirable fishing conditions are not reasons to cancel or receive a refund.  Often times “bad weather” is the best fishing weather!  Please keep this in mind.  Failure to show or failure to cancel in a timely manner will result in your being liable for the entire cost of the reservation and our resultant collection of that amount from you.  All reservations are secured with a valid credit card. If our Smith River Outfitter is unable to provide guide service on the Smith due to unforeseen events (mainly low, unfloatable water), your deposit may be applied toward a future launch date or other fishing alternatives may be performed.  Our Outfitter will discuss the options with you.  Travel insurance is highly recommended for Smith River Guided Trips.
