Below are our Frequently Asked Questions.

You can either book on-line or call us and we will reserve the boat for you. We require a 25% deposit to confirm the booking, with the balance due 6 weeks before your departure date.

Once you submit the booking form on-line or sign the booking form in the brochure, you are then entering a legal contract and will be liable for the full cost of the holiday. It is recommended that you protect yourself by taking out a cancellation protection scheme, which will cover the cost of cancellation due to sickness or accident.
