Please read the following Terms and Conditions.

By submitting your deposit, you agree to our terms and conditions and acknowledge that you have read and understand them thoroughly. You must also fill out and submit our liability waiver here before arrival. Without filling out this form, you cannot step onto the boat on your first day.

Deposits and cancellation/refund policy updated October 5, 2023

Due to the nature of our business and the limited timeframe we operate during our season, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required within seven days of making a reservation to secure a fishing confirmation.

Final payment is due 90 days before you arrive at the lodge; participants are responsible for total costs, and no refund will be made unless a replacement is found. It is the responsibility of the guest to find their replacement. If we can fill your spot, we will try our best, but it is not the lodge’s responsibility to ensure a substitute for your booking.

There will be no partial refunds for late arrivals or early departures. Riddle’s Fishing Lodge reserves the right to reschedule any trip during a stay that was delayed or canceled due to weather or any other scheduling conflicts. Riddle’s Fishing Lodge is not responsible for any emergency decision made by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game or by acts of mother nature or Government decisions on your end or ours. If you do not believe you can meet your reservation obligation, we urge you to obtain travel or some other form of insurance. 

Receipt of deposit and/or final payment acknowledges that the guest has read and accepted the cancellation/refund and responsibility clause.

As a small family company, we empathize with family challenges and personal transitions; we must also protect our livelihood and that of our employees. The best way to secure your funds and not have to worry about the ‘unexpected’ of life is to purchase travelers insurance.

Availability, rates and pricing

Availability and rates are subject to change at any time and without notice. We recommend booking early to secure the best dates and rates. For the 2024 season, we are quoting packages based on our current contractor rates for fishing; if any of our fishing partners change their pricing structures, we will notify you ASAP if we anticipate your package price increasing for the 2024 season. Also, if gasoline or operating costs rise more than 5% from our current standards, we reserve the right to implement a fuel and operating surcharge before your arrival. You will be made aware of this before your final payment.

Verbal discussions with our crew and staff do not guarantee dates or rates. Be sure to request a written quote to secure the terms of your fishing trip. Riddles Fishing Lodge will honor pricing and hold dates provided in a written quote for up to seven days from the invoice date.

Dates and rates in written quotes expire seven days from the invoice date unless secured by deposit.
