Cancellation Policy

Weather Conditions: We reserve the right to cancel any trip due to unsafe weather conditions.

Maine Sport conducts trips in the rain, wind, fog, and cold weather as long as weather conditions are deemed safe to be in. Safe yet undesirable weather will not result in exceptions to the cancellation policy noted below.

Multi Day Trips and Courses: Cancellations made 21 days or more before the start of your course will receive a full refund less a $25 administration fee. Cancellations made with less than 21 days notice will receive a 50% refund of the total trip/course cost. Cancellations made less than 48-hours notice will not receive any refund.
