TERMS & CONDITIONS
Skagit Guided Adventures reserves the right to update these policies at any time and without prior notice.
TOUR PRICING and PAYMENT
Prices advertised are per person (Adult or Child) and do not include taxes, booking fees, food, entrance fees to tulip gardens or guide gratuities. Taxes and fees are applied at check-out. Full payment using a credit card is due at checkout. Full payment secures your tour and implies acceptance of these terms & conditions which apply up until the actual tour date.
RESCHEDULING OR CANCELLING A TOUR
Rescheduling or cancelling a tour by guests or SGA at any time for any reason incurs a $30 fee (plus T&F) per person/seat.
Rescheduling an Adventure is based upon availability and may be subject to a price adjustment if opting for a different Adventure or a later date.
Adventures cancelled or rescheduled by guests within
- 2 days or no show: will forfeit 100%
- 7 days: will be refunded 50% – cancellation/rescheduling fee.
- 8 days or longer: will be refunded 100% – cancellation/rescheduling fee.
Purchasing travel insurance, including Cancel for No Reason, is highly recommended to offset penalties incurred by unforeseen circumstances.
If Skagit Guided Adventures is forced to cancel your tour, you’ll be offered the option to cancel, reschedule or gift your tour to someone for use within 1 year of the tour date without incurring additional fees. Only when an unforeseen catastrophic “force majeure” event outside of the company’s control (such as war, strike, riot, crime, epidemic, pandemic, earthquake, tsunami) affecting both parties, will the cancellation fee of $23 apply. Purchasing travel insurance, including Cancel for No Reason, is recommended to offset penalties incurred by such unforeseen events.
SGA reserves the right to cancel a tour the day of due to unforeseen circumstances, including air quality index (AQI) of over 200 due to fire smoke covering SGA’s entire operating area. A full refund will be issued in this case.
Furthermore, Skagit Guided Adventures reserves the right to substitute, modify or terminate an ongoing tour without a refund if weather or other unforeseen circumstances compromise the safety of its participants.
All children under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
ENVIRONMENT & WILDLIFE PROTECTION
Skagit Guided Adventures and its Adventurers proudly follow the Leave No Trace ethics of outdoor conduct by taking only memories and pictures and leaving nature as we found it! We accomplish this by:
- maintaining a respectful distance while watching or photographing wildlife
- moving respectfully around wildlife;
- not picking plants or wildflowers
- staying on marked trails to avoid trampling over natural and sensitive habitats
- forgoing the collection of natural souvenirs
