Our guest’s safety and comfort is always our priority. We constantly monitor sea conditions along the coastline and respond professionally to any changes. This may mean:

A full refund will apply to tours cancelled due to inclement weather, a tour where minimum passenger numbers have not been met or any other safety reason if it cannot be rebooked to the customer’s satisfaction.

If you book an expedition and are unable to travel due to official Government Restrictions put in place because of Covid-19 you will be entitled to reschedule your expedition to a later date, or if you wish you can cancel the booking with the entitlement to a full refund. We encourage you to book with our 25% deposit payment option, the remainder of the payment can be made closer to your expedition date.
