Bookings & Payment:

  • How to Book:
    • Experiences are subject to availability and they do get booked out. When you have decided on a package or experience you would like, we will confirm availability and then send you a booking confirmation.
    • Your booking is only secured once a booking confirmation email has been issued and a deposit has been paid. The deposit is normally only $200 to secure your booking. Some packages and experiences require a larger deposit. Please refer to the price guides for clarification. A second payment instalment of $400 is required for boats. The deposit and any payment instalments are deducted from the total due 10 days before the event.
  • How to Pay:
    • Payments methods include Bank Transfer, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal.

    • No additional guests can be added after the balance deadline. Please understand we have deadlines to adhere to with a large network of suppliers and payment terms.
