Online reservations are recommended and require payment in full at the time of booking. Groups that qualify for discounted rates should call the office to make the reservation. Call-in reservations still require a credit card to confirm the booking, but we’ll wait to process the card until the day of the trip. See our cancellation policy on the FAQ page.
