As Osprey’s Echo we make every effort to deliver on our promise of a wonderful trip, but there may be times when either your guide (for reasons of extreme weather) or you will want to consider cancellation.  Therefore, we offer the following policy:

We offer a full refund of all money paid if you cancel a tour, rental or lesson booking more than two days (48 hours) in advance.

If you must cancel within 48 hours we will offer a 50% refund of your up front payment.  For cancellations on the day of the trip, we will not be able to offer a refund.


You will have the option of receiving a full refund if your trip is canceled by your guide due to weather conditions. We will make these decisions either on the day or your trip or the day prior.  We usually do not cancel tours due to overcast skies or scattered showers (the seas are often especially calm and pleasant during these conditions), but we do cancel when winds are too strong, or when thunderstorms appear likely. We will call you if we cancel your trip and we will first try to reschedule at your convenience.  Of course, if this is not possible, we will a full refund.


During our 2021 & 2022 seasons we will offer a full refund if you must cancel a reservation if anyone in your party has been tested positive, exhibiting systems, or been exposed to covid-19.
