TOUR FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Rock Hunting Tours

How long is the tour?

Please plan on arriving at least 10 minutes prior to your Tour Time to make sure everyone can leave for the tour on time. Due to the amount of daylight in the summer, we cannot give an estimated end time, however tours typically run 2 hours, possibly a bit longer. Travel could range from 7-20 miles from the meeting point may be required due to wind/wave conditions along Lake Superior, along with road conditions.

Cancellation Requirements

We understand that circumstances change. Due to the demand of Erik's tours, we do ask that in order to be fully refunded, you must cancel up to 2 weeks prior to your scheduled date. Under 2 weeks prior, you'll be refunded 50% of the booking price.

Tours will NOT be cancelled for bugs (mosquitos, sand flies, etc), wind or rain.

In the event of unsafe conditions such as lightning,  the guide may deem that the conditions are unsafe. In this case, you may be refunded or offered an alternative date if available. For 2020, the alternate date for tours would be the following evening of your normally scheduled tour.

COVID-19:

Due to COVID-19 I need to ask anyone with a fever or Covid-like symptoms to cancel. Anyone who would like to wear a mask may do so, but is not required. I will refund or reschedule for COVID-19.
