On the bright side the OP only has to wait a couple of weeks and then the thunderbird will be gone.

Ended up getting food poisoning literally within hours of my trip tonight 2 day. I Called Daveys Locker no partial refund no free credit no nothing. Literally 425$ they want to hijack my shit for. Daveys locker is a scam. No other landing will take your cash like this not even Long Beach Sportfishing. And that’s saying something.

Luckily I bank with Wells Fargo as they got my back on the refund. Unbelievable how in justice that Landing is regarding illnesses or any other customer matters that someone needs to attend.

While I’m sitting on the pot right now they just want to keep my 425 with no resolutions..........unbelievable.
You shouldn't be typing until you finish your paper work and wash your hands. Nasty!

Chargebacks get ya 86’d btw so guess that ends your fishing with Jeff. When I worked in the office at Daveys, I heard it all with cancellations. It is a zero cancellation policy just like every other landing. If they’re feeling nice they can give you credit but legally they don’t have to. I gave out credits for future trips majority of the time because I understand LIFE can happen. I could bet money OP called the landing rudely asking for a refund first. Being rude just ain’t it in life.

I forwarded this to the buddy who deals with the charge backs. Admitting to being sick on the internet doesn’t work with credit card companies btw. That’s what travel insurance is for.

After working in the food industry for the last 35 yrs. I could swear “foood poisoning” takes up to 24 hrs to appear, if you got the runs it’s what you ate the day before...
Okaaaay,,,,

A good customer oriented company would have offered some type of credit and most will. I’ve had to cancel last minuet more then once. But anything offered is in good faith and should not be expected. Bitching about it on the internet makes guy look like a spoiled entitled brat. The Landing did nothing wrong so what makes you feel they owe anything?

You guys are a huge group of aholes. Let's start a gofundme to help the op recoupe his costs minus the parking? In this harsh world we sports fishermen need to stick together and we should all cover his losses.
You are as dumb as he is!

I've had to cancel two trips in the last few years due to my brother's health issues. Both times it was late notice so I just showed up at the landing and said I'm sorry but we are short one guy due to illness. I had pre-paid for both the trips and didn't really expect a refund but both Dana and Seaforth credited my card. I never had to ask but I was nice to the person and explained that my brother just couldn't go. I know the Dana boat was stuffed and the San Diego had a load of 50 with 55 as max.

BTW: I'm not certain it applies in this case but I routinely charge a "tax" for customers that are overly demanding/difficult.
