All charters are subject to weather conditions. Archbold-Pflueger Sport Fishing reserves the right to cancel a trip due to inclement weather.  Travel insurance is highly recommended to protect your trip, as we cannot accept responsibility for any loss of trip costs, airfares, lost vacation time, or any other financial consequences.

Archbold-Pflueger Sport Fishing makes every effort to conduct all trips on time and to the proposed itinerary.  However, Archbold-Pflueger Sport Fishing may be unable to depart due to warnings issued by the Bureau of Meteorology, in the event of a natural disaster, or if wind speeds exceed the safe operating limits specified for our operation by the Panamanian Maritime Authority.

Financial consequences of any fishing time that is missed and any travel connections or accommodation bookings that need to be changed as a result of these unforeseen weather events are to be claimed on travel insurance. Cancellations are exceptionally rare, but again, Archbold-Pflueger Sport Fishing high recommend investing in travel insurance, specifically a policy that covers sport fishing in the domestic waters of Panama.
