We require a valid credit card to hold all phone & internet reservations. Alternatively, you can book a tour with us in person at our office location, provided our office is open.

  • How do I pay for my tour?

    If you are reserving your tour online, your credit card will be charged within 24 hours. We require a valid credit card to hold all phone & internet reservations. Alternatively, you can pay us in person at our office location for any tour, provided our office is open. You can also choose to pay in cash to your driver by calling the office directly and providing a valid debit or credit card number.

  • What types of payments do you accept?

    Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards. We also accept debit cards with symbols of these card companies. Please note that “pre-paid” cards and “travel” cards often are not accepted by our system and it is possible we may ask you to provide an alternate payment method if the initial payment does not go through.

    Cash: You can pay cash at our office location for any tour. You can also choose to pay in cash to your driver by calling the office directly and providing a valid debit or credit card number.

    Apologies, but we do not provide a travel or personal check payment option, nor can you choose to pay with cash for any online reservations.

  • Will I get a discount if I book a second tour?

    For certain tours, you can get up to a $9 discount off your second tour. The $9 discount can be applied to Extranomical-operated tours only. Instructions to redeem this offer online can be found during your check out process in the booking form on page 3, but you can also receive this discount by calling our office directly. The discount must be redeemed at the time of reservation and cannot be applied after you have made the booking.

  • Are there any advantages by booking my tour online?

    You will get an automatic discount on your first tour when you book online at www.extranomical.com!

  • Can I combine two or more discount codes?

    At this time only one discount code can be accepted per reservation. You must choose which one you would like to apply upon making your booking. There is a space for the discount code or “tracking code” on the final page of the booking form.

  • My discount code isn’t working!

    Not every code will be applicable to every single reservation. Please read the terms of the discount code you are attempting to use carefully, and note that some codes provided by third parties may have expired. If the code is valid and has been correctly applied you will see the value reflected on the final checkout page before submitting your reservation.

  • I’ve already made a reservation but forgot to add the discount code. Can you refund me the discount?

    Unfortunately, any discount code you would like to use must be applied at the time of your booking. The code must be redeemed at the time of reservation and cannot be applied after you have made the booking.

    Tours with hotel packages and other third-party attractions tickets (ie. Monterey aquarium tickets) cancelled or changed with more than 10 days notice prior to departure, will incur a $35.00 fee or a fee of 10% of the package cost, whichever is greater.

    Cancellations of any Tour package or 3rd party attraction ticket with less than 10 days notice will not be entitled to any refunds. Airport shuttles, Bay Cruises and Alcatraz tickets are nonrefundable.

  • Where do I pick up the tickets for my tour?

    You do not need to have a physical voucher to board Extranomical-operated tours. Please follow the instructions on your confirmation for any 3rd-party-operated tours such as Bay City Bikes, Blue & Gold Fleet, Airport Express, et al. If you have purchased the Ferry Bay Cruise tickets, your Expedition Leader will give these to you upon boarding your tour.

    Please note that Alcatraz Cruises will require that each adult boarding the boat to Alcatraz bring their photo ID or passport for identity verification. 

If you have a little more time to dedicate to your Whitewater Rafting experience, then we always recommend a full day rafting trip!! Experience all the scenic beauty of our half day tours, with the added benefit of a freshly-prepared river-side lunch, and best of all, the most exciting 5 miles of the river including thrilling 'Split Rock' and 'Corner Pocket' rapids. Our one-day whitewater rafting expeditions begin by assembling at the parking area beside the Indian Flat Campground. Once assembled, one of your experienced guides will discuss some safety details and we will have a brief lesson in how to operate the rafts. Following your short whitewater rafting lesson, we will distribute wetsuits and safety equipment and start to board the rafts. Before lunch we will cover a distance of approximately 10 miles, after which we are sure you will have worked up an appetite! So our instructors will whip you up a healthy lunch, made with fresh ingredients, which you can enjoy whilst chilling out by the side of the river. Following lunch, we will re-board the rafts and continue downstream for the most exciting and strenuous part of our trip. The second half of our rafting trip takes in the rapids 'Split Rock' and 'Corner Pocket' which are sure to stir up some excitement! At about 4 o'clock, we will reach the end of our rafting expedition and travel by bus back to the Indian Flat assembly area.
