  • Whaler’s Cove Lodge cannot be held responsible for, nor can we offer refunds due to weather conditions or events beyond our control.

Whaler’s Cove Lodge starts booking trips 2 years in advance, and blocks can sell out 18- 20 months before scheduled trip dates. We have very limited space available at our Lodge, which means we have to turn away hundreds of hopeful visitors every year. Once trip blocks are sold out, they’re sold out (unlike airlines, we do not oversell). If space has been occupied for 18 months and then must unexpectedly be cancelled, it puts us all in a difficult position. We will make every effort to re-book your space, as it is both in our and your best interest, but that does not always happen.

As a small family company, we empathize with family challenges and personal transitions; we must also protect our livelihood and that of our employees. The best way to secure your funds and not have to worry about the ‘unexpecteds’ of life is to purchase travelers insurance. A company we’ve heard good things about in the past is Squaremouth. You can visit their website here:, or call them at 800-240-0369.  Whaler’s Cove Lodge is not affiliated with, nor does it benefit from, Squaremouth sales or policies. This suggestion is for your travel protection only.
