We will accept reservations via our online registration, by phone or E-mail, but will hold them for just 5 business days. Guarantee of a space on a trip will be given once your payment and sign-up form have been received. We encourage you to sign-up early, and often.
Cancellation due to weather or any other reason is entirely at the discretion of the Captains of each boat. Cancellation notices and weather warnings will be available under the ALERTS tab at the top of the website home page and on our answering machine at 215-234-6805. All participants should check the Paulagics web site and/or the answering machine the evening before a trip to confirm that the trip is sailing. Remember, it is possible that the trip could be cancelled at the dock. There are no guarantees that we will sail. If the answering system or web site is not updated, you should show up at the dock and be prepared to sail.
COMMUNICATIONS FOR CANCELLED PELAGICS
If the trip is cancelled far enough in advance, we will attempt to send out an e-mail notification. If a trip is cancelled late, we may call the participants directly. Please note that there is no guarantee that we will either call or e-mail with cancellation information. It is ultimately the duty of the participant to check whether or not we have cancelled a trip. Check the Alerts Page on our website and call our voicemail to check the current status of a trip.
Refunds and Credits
The following are our policies concerning refunds:
* If for any reason the trip is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.
* If YOU cancel 30 days or more before the trip, you will receive a full refund.
* If YOU cancel Less than 30 days before the trip, you will only receive a refund if we are able to fill the trip.
* There is no penalty if you provide your own replacement, provided they are not already signed up for the trip.
* If a trip departs but must return early, and the Captain charges a pro-rated refund to See Life Paulagics, you will receive a partial refund based on the pro-rated amount.
* If a trip is cancelled due to poor weather conditions, it is the participant’s responsibility to notify See Life Paulagics by e-mail, phone, or regular mail to request a refund or to have funds held for a future trip.
Refunds are usually credited back to your PayPal account if that is how you paid. We try to use PayPal as often as possible even for those that pay by check. If you wish, a check can be sent instead, but you must request it. Checks are normally mailed out within a week of the trip when a refund is requested. If you choose to carry a credit, you may later request a refund at any time and the check will be mailed out within the week unless the office is closed, in which case the check will be mailed out at the first opportunity. Your money is always your money, unless the trip sails.
