Terms & conditions

It is your responsibility to read our Boat Trip information page which contains information on clothing, safety and other important aspects of your trip.

Please read these Terms & Conditions before buying a voucher for our trips.

Cancellation

  • If we cancel for any reason for example due to weather or for logistical reasons then we will offer a refund.
  • If you give us 24 hours or more notice of a cancellation we will offer a refund. If you give notice of less than 24 hours, then no refund may be given.
  • We reserve the right to cancel or delay and reschedule trips without warning for commercial or logistical reasons.
  • If you miss your vessel because you are late then no refund will be given.
  • We reserve the right on occasion to take photographs for use in our own publicity.
  • No two voyages are the same; we cannot guarantee particular wildlife sightings.

Boat trips are wholly dependant upon weather and sea conditions, and sometimes we regret that it will be necessary to cancel a sailing due to less than favourable conditions or when the operator deems it unsafe to sail. In which case your voucher will remain valid and you can book a place on the trip on another day and/or time, or take a refund.

Medical conditions

When booking you must inform us of any medical conditions. All boats can experience unpredictable movements that can aggravate existing medical conditions. You must inform us of such conditions, especially back/bone conditions and pregnancy.  We will advise you as best we can but as we are not medical experts, the decision as to whether to sail will be entirely at your risk. The skipper may refuse boarding in certain circumstances.

  • Your responsibility: You must inform skipper and crew of any difficulties or disabilities that you may have. When on board – please take notice of informed safety procedures.
  • The sea is a dangerous and ever changing environment and all adventurous activities carry certain risks that cannot be ignored. We do not, therefore, accept any responsibility for any events or incidents occurring outside our control.
  • If we suspect you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs you will not be allowed to board our vessels and you will not be eligible for a refund.
