Maine Island Kayak Co Waiver & Release

Cancellations & Refunds

If MIKCo cancels any day’s event due to too few participants or due to unsafe weather or sea conditions, or the status of any pandemic, we will offer a reasonable alternative, or a full refund. If you cancel with 7 days notice, we'll send you a full refund; if you give us less than 7 days notice, we cannot refund you unless we can fill your reserved spot. If MIKCo feels or agrees that the pandemic risk is too worrisome for safe delivery of our course or trip, MIKCo will provide a full refund.

Cancellations & Refunds

If Maine Island Kayak Outfitters cancels a course due to unsafe weather or sea conditions, we’ll send you a full refund minus any third party booking fees (this only applies if you booked using an online service). If we cancel a course for too few participants you will receive a full refund.  If you cancel with 10 days notice, we’ll send you a full refund less a $35 administrative fee, 75% of the total cost with one week's notice, but no refund if you cancel with less than 7 days notice – unless we are able to fill your spot from a waiting list.

Health Insurance: We recommend that you have health  insurance, as you are responsible for any medical costs incurred.

Miscellaneous: Under 18 years of age requires special parental consent and minor forms. We reserve the right to refuse services to anyone we feel is a risk to themselves or others.
