Please be at the Harbour 30 minutes before the departure time indicated on your ticket, remember to allow plenty of time to get into the town, parked, walk to the harbour and board the boat.

Traffic can be very busy especially over weekends and peak season. The boat WILL leave sharp on the departure time on the ticket, as its unfair on others who have also booked and turned up promptly for the departure time to be delayed and boat tour shortened, the boat WILL leave without you if you are late.

As a small business we are particularly vulnerable to last minute cancellations as we operate limited tours and low passenger numbers. To ensure the viability of our business we require reasonable notifications of cancellations to allow us time to re-plan our boats itineraries, crewing requirements, boat location and fuelling requirements.
