Safety and Weather Policy
• Charters are not affected by rain but strong winds and big swells may result in cancellation of a charter
• If the management cancel a charter due to weather conditions or any other circumstances your booking can be updated or you can obtain a full refund if the pre booked charter did not operate. However if a charter has to return during its operation any refunds will be on a pro rata basis.
• Marine weather forecasts can change during the day and overnight. We will endeavour to inform you via text or phone and email if any decision to cancel a charter is made. Please ensure your phone is switched on.
• Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult and become their responsibility whilst on board the boat.
• Only wine and beer (in cans) are permitted to be taken and consumed on the boat in MODERATION. The skipper has the authority to ban drinking alcohol at any time to enable a safe boating situation to be maintained for all on board. If you breach this policy and an early return to shore results from unruly behaviour you will be liable for compensation to the other passengers on the boat. Private charters will not be entitled to any refund. Anyone who turns up to attend a charter inebriated or under the influence of drugs will not be allowed to board.
