Alaska Rainbow Adventures Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions.

All Guides and Guests must remain vigilant and aware that although several years have passed, COVID-19 is still a real-world issue that can adversely impact operations.

Although not obligatory, we would like to see all of our guests visiting southwest Alaska purchase at least travel interruption insurance and possibly even a rescue-evacuation plan. The region is far from accessible infrastructure, and unpredictable weather can disrupt travel plans. Therefore, it is essential to take necessary precautions to ensure safe and secure travel arrangements. While the fact is that most destination anglers will never need to use travel insurance or a rescue evac, the reality is that every once in a while, someone will. And – if you’re the one who needs it – you will feel like it is the best investment you’ve ever made!

All our trips are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to prior booking. They may be gone unless you have called, reserved them, and followed up with a deposit. You can book for groups of 2 to 10 persons in size, depending upon the water* you wish to visit. If you are a single angler, please ask about joining one of our existing trips. We can let you know what is available and put you on our email list, which keeps you updated on availability.

We reserve the right to fill any remaining spaces if your group size does not reach the maximum number of persons we take on any particular trip. All trips have weight limits, usually 250 pounds per person, including one's gear, due to aircraft capacity limits. While we will try to accommodate you whenever possible, any additional capacity may only be available at extra cost

*Togiak river trips are limited to six guests by permit, Goodnews, and Kanektok river trips to eight. Check the information page about the water you intend to fish for any additional specific details or limitations. Available spaces on scheduled trips are subject to change. There are weight limits on all trips, usually 250 pounds per person, including one's personal gear, due to aircraft capacity restrictions, if we can accommodate any equipment above that amount within the scheduled aircraft capacity for the trip, we will. If not, one's excess gear can usually be accommodated at an additional charge.

Deposits and Cancellations: A deposit of 50% of the trip cost is required to confirm a booking. Once confirmed by receipt of the initial payment/deposit, you are responsible for the entire total balance, even if you do not participate in the trip for any reason due to the short booking season and loss of revenue this represents. Deposits are due within 15 days of requesting space on any trip. Please note, however, that all spaces remain available for sale during this time.

Payments can be by check/pay-pal transfer (Credit cards payments can be sent via Pay-Pal + a 3.5% Convenience Fee) or wire transfer. Please note that all payments are non-refundable. Payment of the balance in full is due no later than 60 days before the start date of your adventure or June 1st, whichever comes first. Deposits and final payments are non-refundable and non-transferrable. We can not emphasize the purchase of trip insurance strongly enough. Receipt of deposit by Alaska Rainbow Adventures means you agree to these terms and conditions.

All reservations made within 60 days of departure require payment to be paid in full at the time of booking. "Special offers" are also to be paid in full when booking. If payment has not been remitted in full before the trip start, participation in the trip will not be allowed, and money received will not be refunded. Rates and terms are subject to change without notice.

Responsibility: Alaska Rainbow Adventures is not responsible for any loss, damage, or injury to persons or property, however, caused, or for any costs of accommodations and associated services caused by weather, transportation problems, and other events beyond Alaska Rainbow Adventures' control. If Alaska Rainbow Adventures cancels for reasons within our control, we will reschedule you for the next available date that works for you. There will be no refunds for canceled trips for any reason.

When necessary for the safety or comfort of our guests, Alaska Rainbow Adventures has the right to cancel or make reasonable schedule changes to all or a portion of your trip or services without recourse. This can be due to weather and/or other events out of our control.

While we make every attempt to have all the items we promise for any particular trip, due to operations and the logistics of operating in remote areas of Alaska, some services may be subject to change without notice. Examples of this may be item(s) left behind at the departure location as it did not fit in the allotted aircraft due to capacity restrictions.

It is your responsibility to ascertain that you are fit enough to participate in this type of activity and, in doing so, accept all risks and costs involved should it be deemed you cannot at any time before or during your trip with Alaska Rainbow Adventures.

Liability Waiver: Due to insurance requirements, each angler wishing to participate in any trip arranged by Alaska Rainbow Adventures must read and sign an "acknowledgment of risks" form and a copy of these terms and conditions. You accept and are bound by these terms and conditions even if you do not return the form. Download the waiver form.

What is included: Air transportation from the trip’s starting point and return flight to the starting point by available air services. Note: Air Services are not affiliated with Alaska Rainbow Adventures and we are subject to their schedule and availability. Accommodations while on the river in comfortable tent camps, meals, and guiding service. Alaska Rainbow Adventures also supplies life jackets and for your comfort and safety.

Note: We are not a fixed operation such as a lodge, and we operate in several different locations around the Bristol Bay and Southwest region of Alaska away from usual supply sources. Because of this, we do not always have on hand many of the items that one might find available, included or as extras at a fixed operation, such as fishing licenses, waders, sleeping bags (available in Bethel for rent w/liners), tackle/lures, or for your guides to have on hand a substantial selection of extra available flies and lures, it is, for this reason, we ask that you supply those items.

You are responsible for purchasing your Alaska fishing license before your trip and having it on your person at all times while fishing. If you do not have it, you cannot fish on the trip, and we do not sell fishing licenses. Visit the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Website to purchase. If you are on a trip where fishing for king salmon is open and you plan on targeting King Salmon, you will also need to purchase a king stamp.
