Reservation requests will be held for 10 days pending a $1,000 non-refundable deposit per person. Due to our short season and high demand for space, your reservation may be released for further bookings if deposits are not received. A payment of $500 per person is due January 15, with a final payment due by March 1. Full payment is required for reservations made after March 1. El Capitan Lodge accepts checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
El Capitan Lodge will not be responsible for loss of fishing time, lodging or food (if you book and cannot make the trip), transportation, baggage and fish box losses, flight delays and other incidents resulting from conditions beyond our control.
All deposits received are non-refundable. Cancellation insurance is highly recommended.
Gratuities are customary for the lodge crew and typically average 10 percent of your package price. However, tips are dependent on your satisfaction with the service provided and are at your individual discretion. An amount you are comfortable with will be greatly appreciated by the crew.
