Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a deposit?
We understand that sometimes plans change, which is why we do not require a deposit when booking a trip with Second Chance Fishing. However, we strongly encourage our customers to provide at least 72 hours’ notice if they need to cancel their trip. This helps us to plan our schedule and be sure we can accommodate others who may be interested in booking.
No Catch, No Pay?
