The Fine Print.

There are a few conditions under which we contract to conduct a charter for you. There are no nasty surprises hidden in there and it's all pretty clear cut, but please take the time to read through and understand them. 

Payment of the deposit signifies that you accept and understand these conditions.

  1. Quotations. Quotations are valid for 7 days only, after which they may be subject to price changes.
  2. Tentative Bookings. Tentative reservations will be held in good faith for up to seven days pending payment of the depositor until another party wants to book the vessel, whichever is sooner. The booking is not secured until the deposit has been received.
  3. Confirmation of Booking. A Charter will be confirmed on receipt of the deposit specified. All bookings made within fourteen days of Charter date require payment in full at the time of booking.
  4. Deposit. The deposit payable will be 20% of the total estimated Charter fee unless otherwise specified.
  5. Final Payment. Final guest numbers and final payment is required seven days prior to the Charter unless otherwise agreed.

Any additional passengers on the day are charged accordingly.
  6. Methods of Payment. Direct Deposit, EFT, PayID, or cash are acceptable forms of payment. Credit card facilities are NOT available.

The Operator may refuse service of alcohol to any individual in the Operator’s absolute discretion at any time. Intoxicated guests will not be permitted to board. Whenever alcohol is served on a Vessel, substantial food must also be provided to satisfy the RSA obligations. The Operator has the right to refuse passengers boarding if sufficient food is not provided.

  11. Restricted Areas. Hiring of this vessel does not give access to cabins and other restricted areas of the vessel, unless with permission of the crew.
