Please check it now to make sure it’s valid through the dates of your fishing trip!
It can take several weeks, or longer due to high demand (like during summer travel), even with expediting to renew a passport and they are currently required for all our fishing trips. Our policy states that deposits are non-refundable if you haven’t renewed your passport in time.
Passport books or the passport card are valid for use on fishing trips.
(The actual passport is required, not a copy or an expired one. And birth certificates and Enhanced Driver’s Licenses are not substitutes.)
Pro Tip: Renew early so that future renewal dates do NOT coincide with fishing season. Waiting for a renewal while your trip approaches is no fun! And you must send in your current passport with the renewal application so you won’t have it to use.
