The Skipper will decide if the weather is good enough to go ahead with the fishing trip. The Skipper reserves the right to change the type of trip depending on the weather conditions. For example if the weather does not permit offshore wrecking but is fit for an inshore reef trip then the trip will go ahead with the changed itinerary and the price will be reduced accordingly. In the event we have to cancel your trip due to bad weather or unseen circumstances your deposit or full payment will be returned (less a 2% booking fee for credit cards). We can also ‘roll over’ the deposit or full payment for a re–arranged date at the angler’s discretion.
If you cancel we will always try to re-book the date if we are successful there is no liability on your part and your deposit or full payment will be returned (less a 2% booking fee for credit cards). If you cancel and we are unable to rebook the date or you do not turn up in time for the departure of the boat the deposit or payment will be forfeited. In the case of charters you will also be expected to pay the balance of 75% of the full charter price. You agree that any balance will be charged to your credit or debit card on date that the charter would have taken place.
No claim will be accepted against the Skipper for cancellation due to illness, breakdown or any event beyond the Skipper's control, ie weather (see above Cancellation, Change & Our Promise to You)
