Note: Whilst we will endeavour to provide you with the day charter of your choice – sailing is dependant on natural forces beyond our control such as winds and tides. Should your first choice not be achievable on the day we will provide you with an alternative. We will ensure that your alternative charter is of equal time and value to your original selection. Please be aware that if your first choice is not possible on the day we will not issue a refund but an alternative charter option.
