Charter Policy

Terms and Conditions
50% of charter fee. If you cannot give 30 days notice for cancellation or 14 days notice for postponement 50% of the charter fee will be forfeited. NO REFUNDS AVAILABLE WITHOUT EXCEPTION. If a passenger leaves the yacht and /or abandons a charter before the scheduled termination date and time for whatever reason NO REFUNDS will be given

Postponement allowed with 14 days notice, or in the case of bad weather, otherwise it is treated as a cancellation. Drizzle or occasional light rain does not constitute bad weather but pouring rain, thunder storms & lightening does! In other words, "Postponement" for drizzle, light rain, illness or any personal reason, is treated as a cancellation.

Rescheduling a Booking after an Approved Postponement:
In the case of an approved postponement, rescheduled charters must take place within 6 months of the original date booked. The deposit will be held by Harbour Cruises. The full amount of any catering not cancelled before 8.30am on the day will be charged for.

What to Wear:
NO HIGH HEELED SHOES as they are unsafe. Bare feet are ok but boating or tennis type shoes with rubber grip are best. Bring hat, sunscreen, sunglasses. If you bring swimmers, don’t forget a towel. There's plenty of room to store extra clothes in case it turns warmer, colder or wetter!

SMOKING only on upper decks is allowed onboard the yacht
No exceptions!

Food and Drink:
Bring your own food and drink and other supplies. We look after the rubbish onboard.

Harbour Cruises shall not be held liable for death, personal injury, loss or damage to property howsoever arising and therefore by booking a yacht charter, you hereby release, to the full extent permitted by state, law and equity, Harbour Cruises, its employees and agents from all actual and contingent liability in respect of such personal injury, death, loss or damage. Swimming from the boat is at the charterers' own risk as they will not be covered by the boat’s insurance policy once they leave the charter vessel.
