  2. No refund will be given if you cancel your reservation by giving us less than 24 hours notice or if you miss your tour.

Cancellation and Refunds for Unforseen Circumstances

Unfortunately on some occasions the weather is just not suitable for visiting the outer reef. The forecast wind speed, sea state and height of the tide are the determining factors in our judgement of suitability. Our boats are incredibly seaworthy but in extreme weather the journey would be unacceptably uncomfortable, or the sea conditions can be too challenging for snorkelling comfortably. If we we cancel a trip because of these, or other unforeseen reasons, you will be offered a full refund or an alternative day of travel.
