COVID-19 CANCELLATION POLICY:

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, or alternatively issue a voucher that the client can use for future travel.

REFUND POLICY:

We encourage advance bookings based on demand. Our cancellation policy is as below:

● No shows and cancellation within 7 days of departure – 100% cancellation fee
*This fee will be debited on the day of the trip if the above applies.

A full refund will be considered on merit, by management, in the event of illness, hospitalization, accident or death, upon receipt of proof thereof.

A full refund will be granted should the activity be cancelled in the interest of safety, prior to the trip.

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.
