CANCELLATIONS DUE TO UNSUITABLE WEATHER / SEA CONDITIONS: We spend a considerable amount of administration time on Guided Sea Kayaking tours and need to ease the employment of qualified sea kayak guides when the weather is not suitable for guided trips. We operate in a dynamic weather environment and have made a significant investment in our kayaking business. If we cannot reschedule a trip and have to cancel a trip due to unsuitable weather or sea conditions we will retain $15.00 p.p. to help cover our adminstration and staff costs.
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.
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:
all HALF DAY and FULL DAY trips we will donate the following:
- $ 1.00 per adult or child on guided walk, hike or sea kayaking
OVERNIGHT trips we will donate the following:
$1.00 per adult or child on guided walk, hike or sea kayaking trip
of one to two nights
- $5.00 per adult or child on guided hike or sea kayaking trip of
three or more nights
note 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.
Our sea kayaking trips have not yet formed part of our Qualmark
assessment. Our plan is to undergo Qualmark assessment specifically
for this in 2013.
