CANCELLATIONS DUE TO UNSUITABLE WEATHER / SEA CONDITIONS: We operate in a dynamic weather environment and have made a significant investment in our kayaking business. A considerable amount of time is spent on administration of Guided Sea Kayaking tours. We also need to ensure we can retain qualified sea kayak guides when the weather is not suitable for guided trips. If we cannot reschedule a trip and have to cancel a trip due to unsuitable weather or sea conditions we will retain $20.00 p.p. to help towards our adminstration and staff costs.

SURCHARGES:
We do not guarantee that trips will run below minimum numbers, however, if we confirm a booking for 2 - 3 persons, we will operate the trip and require a surcharge to be payable on the day the trip operates. Surcharges are noted in the tables above. A surcharge will not apply if the minimum numbers are achieved for the trip.

CONSERVATION PROJECT:
We donate some of our revenue into our own conservation fund to assist with conservation and research. You will be helping by coming on one of our guided trips. See: Conservation for more details:

For all HALF DAY and FULL DAY trips we will donate the following:
$ 1.00 per paying adult or child per guided tour


For OVERNIGHT trips we will donate the following:
$1.00 per paying adult or child per guided trip of 2 - 3 days
$5.00 per paying adult per guided trip of 4 or more days

Children

Some of our trips are not suitable for young children, however, we may be able to offer families with young children alternative options. Please contact us directly to discuss. On sea kayaking trips, children will travel at the discretion of management, depending on amongst other things, ability and weather conditions.
