In the event that high winds or other extreme weather conditions would make the fishing trip unsafe or extremely uncomfortable, we are happy to re-schedule your charter to a later date that is mutually convenient.
We closely monitor all relevant meteorological data on the day before the charter and will advise you on the afternoon before the charter (at approx. 4pm) if your charter is not viable, in which case we will discuss the best dates for a re-schedule.
Please note: Rain alone is not sufficient to defer a charter, however rain and heavy winds (or heavy winds alone) are sufficient to defer a charter.
A 25% deposit is required to secure a booking. In the event of cancellation, the deposit will be retained. In the event that you book and pay a deposit, but change the date of your charter to a later date, we will be happy to accommodate the request provided that at least 2 weeks notice is given.
Safety procedures must be observed at all times. The Skipper's decision on the day is final in all matters relating to the vessel.
Instructions or advice given by the Skipper or crew on matters of safety must be observed by all on board and clients must, at all times, take all reasonable precautions for their own and others safety.
Neither the skipper nor crew accept any liability for any accident or injury incurred by any passenger on board the vessel engaged in fishing, angling, sightseeing, photography, filming, whilst in transit or similar activities, caused by the actions of any other passenger on board howsoever occurring.
Children under the age of 12 may only be carried under the supervision and responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times.
While every reasonable effort is made to ensure quality fishing, we do not accept any responsibility for any circumstances beyond our control, e.g. tides and moon phases, feeding patterns of fish, nor can we guarantee any specific amount of fish caught on a given charter. That said, we have a high rate of success in catching fish on the reefs and this is rarely a concern that materialises.
Any breakages, loss of equipment provided or damage caused on board as a result of client's misbehaviour, irresponsibility or carelessness will be charged to the client. This does not apply to the standard loss of lines & sinkers due to snags.
We shall not be liable for any death, injury or damage, loss, delay or irregularity, which may be caused by persons or conditions beyond our control. We accept no responsibility for any losses or additional expense caused by delays in changes to transport or other services, strikes, war, weather or other causes.
Clients must refrain from throwing rubbish overboard - the Disposal of Garbage at Sea Act makes this an offence.
If any passenger is found to be in possession of anything illegal; or engages in behaviour causing danger to themselves or other persons or property on board, including consumption of alcohol to excess, then he or she will be put ashore at the first opportunity and the Authorities notified as may be necessary. Any such passenger(s) shall free and release the vessel owner/skipper from any liabilities, incidental costs or responsibility arising out of any breach of this condition.
