Hours of Operation

Owing to safety and welfare considerations we do not operate between sunset and sunrise. Normal hours of operation are 1 ½ hours after sunrise and prior to sunset, seven days a week.

Charters that occur out of hours incur a 50% surcharge. The definition of out of hours are:

  • Public holidays
  • If a charter begins prior to 1 ½ hours after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.

Emergency call outs that require immediate attention are charged double the charter rate.

Charters and other services during exceptional circumstances and states of emergency are POA.

Deposits and Payment

A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking within seven days of making the reservation. Final payment is due upon completion of the charter.

We may offer 14 day terms to qualified guests at our discretion.

Refund policy

If you cancel your adventure 48 hours or more before your departure, a full refund less a $35 administrative fee will be made.

If you cancel less than 48 hours before your departure your deposit will be forfeited.

If your adventure is canceled owing to an order by the Queensland Chief Health Officer we will fully refund your deposit.

We reserve the right to cancel bookings due to unforeseen circumstances, such as adverse weather or mechanical failure, and fully refund any deposit.

We strongly recommend that our guests purchase travel insurance for peace of mind to cover accidents, illness and unforeseen happenings.

Late Payments

Nobody likes to pay extra if they can avoid it. You can avoid being charged late fees of 10% per annum on outstanding balances, in addition to a $12 per month administration fee for each outstanding month, when you pay your bill on time.
