Price Changes Policy

Prices may change due to:

• A fuel surcharge imposed by a carrier or the boat supplier; clients will be informed of the additional or revised charges before departure.

• An increase in exchange rate, to the extent that the exchange rate applicable 45 days prior to the service delivery date has risen by more than 5% since the date on which the contract was signed.

• An increase in the Quebec sales tax (QST) and goods and services tax (GST).

Important information

•       Before buying your air ticket to Brazil verify if there is any restriction about transporting rod cases.

•                Get vaccinated against yellow fever at least 30 days before the trip. This is obligatory if you haven’t been vaccinated in the last 9 years. Vaccinations against Tetanus and hepatitis are optional.

•       Medical Considerations – Most of the rivers where we’ll be fishing are black water rivers – that means NO mosquitoes, but the Centers for Disease Control recommend Yellow Fever Vaccination and Malaria Prophylaxis for travelling to the Amazon River Basin. Please consult your physician.

•       Passport/Visa – Nationals from some countries need neither a tourist visa nor a business visa to enter Brazil. Some exemptions are valid for a stay of up to 90 days and travelers that don’t need a visa must present a passport that is valid for more than six months at the Brazilian port of entry. They must also make sure that they have met Brazil vaccination requirements.

The list of exempted countries may change without prior notice and it’s important to check with the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate whose jurisdiction you live in whether your country is really exempted.
