Cancellation Policy

Multi-day Trips

We have a no refund policy on all deposits and balance payments.  We strongly suggest purchasing travel insurance through Travel Guard Insurance to cover your travel investment in the case that life happens and you are not able to go. We do not cancel trips for smoke. In the event of nearby forest fires we continue to run trips until the river is closed by the local authorities.

31+ days to trip launch.  If you cancel more than 30 days prior to the launch of your trip 50% of your deposit may be transferred to a trip the following year. The other 50% of your deposit will be forfeit.

30-15 days prior to trip launch. 25% of your full payment may be transferred to a trip the following season.  75% will be forfeit.

14 or fewer days prior to launch. 100% of trip payment will be forfeit.

Single and 1/2 Day Trips

Single and half-day trips cancelled more than 72 hours prior to launch are subject to a 50% refund of their deposit.  Trips cancelled within 72 hours of their launch will forfeit their deposit. We do not cancel trips due to smoke.

Travel Insurance

We strongly advise purchase of travel insurance through Travel Guard.  Many policies include coverage of deposits and balance payments towards the trip which are non-refundable through Orange Torpedo Trips.  Coverages can also include evacuation fee coverage, which if you need to leave a trip early for any reason, transportation coverage will be at your expense. We strongly advise looking into third party insurance coverage.
