Terms & Conditions

Refunds Policy

All bookings are non-refundable, unless we cancel a cruise for any reason. Bookings are also non-transferable, unless we cancel a cruise for any reason.


Boarding generally commences approximately 15 minutes prior to the departure time of the cruise and we would therefore recommend that you arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to the departure time for your cruise. You must speak to a member of our staff before joining a queue, to allow them to issue your boarding pass and direct you to the correct departure point for your cruise.

Do not go straight to the boat departure point as we have more than one departure point in separate locations and you may be in the wrong queue. We cannot accept any responsibility if you go straight to a departure point and miss the boat due to it being the wrong departure point for your cruise.

We cannot wait for late arrivals and cannot accept any responsibility if you miss your cruise for any reason. You will not be entitled to a refund or a transfer of your booking if you miss your booked cruise.

Discounts Vouchers or discounts cannot be applied after a ticket has been purchased. We offer one adult and one child rate per trip and are unfortunately unable to offer free places to carers, guardians or similar due to passenger number restrictions on our vessels. Evidence of discount entitlement will be required and pre-booking is essential.

Group Bookings

We are happy to take group bookings and offer a discounted rate to groups of 15 or more. This is on the understanding that final numbers and collective payment will be given two weeks before sailing with the exception of our Special Events where we require final numbers and full payment one month prior to the trip.
