Service Terms and Conditions

Should we cancel a trip and you have already paid, you will be refunded. Please cancel 7 days in advance as per our cancellation policy. Should you not arrive for your trip, you will be billed.

Sharks are wild animals and their presence cannot be guaranteed. In the event that there is no shark activity while on a shark cage diving tour with Marine Dynamics, then a voucher will be offered. This voucher is not transferable – your name and passport number will be recorded on the voucher. If a shark has been sighted from the boat, we will consider that a successful trip.

In the event of illness, hospitalisation, accident or death (with the necessary proof and discretion of management) a full refund will be considered.

A Gift Voucher is bought at the rate of your date of purchase.
A Gift Voucher is valid for three years from the date purchased.
A Gift Voucher is non-refundable.
A Gift Voucher is transferable.
You will receive a Gift Voucher confirmation with a Voucher Code. This code is only active once full payment is received.
**Please note that a purchased Gift Voucher is not an active booking in our system.
Use the Gift Voucher code to make a booking on the Marine Dynamics website via the Online Booking system.

Special note for third party bookings: If a Gift Voucher is booked by an Agent/establishment on behalf of their client, a payment link will be forwarded to the Agent/establishment. This link should be sent to the client for payment, to activate the voucher code. The client can use the voucher code to make an online booking via the Marine Dynamics website.

Our standard cancellation policy stands; however, we are always willing to review on a case by case basis for extenuating circumstances. We have implemented a free date change policy - so if a client wishes to postpone their trip, we are happy to change the departure date to later in 2020 or 2021 at no charge. Please note that if the client moves the date to 2021, the 2021 prices will come into effect.

The vehicle transfer fee is non-refundable.

We can guarantee a marine biologist on board who will educate you on our favourite apex predator and other shark species seen.
