It’s highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance to cover things outside of our control, such as: loss or damage to baggage and personal belongings, cancellation of the flights, trips, excursions, lost luggage, death in a family, visa problems, injuries, pregnancy, pandemics, epidemics, trip cancelation due to weather, hurricanes, volcanos, etc. Visit Redpoint Travel Protection or another provider to research options.
In the months, weeks and days leading up to each trip we continually monitor the weather to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. If our yacht supplier shuts their base down due to weather or if we deem it unsafe to sail then we will be forced to cancel or postpone the trip. In the extreme case that the trip is canceled, we are unable to refund you as most of our expenditures are sunk costs. In this case, a third party travel insurance plan, such as one purchased from Redpoint Travel Protection, will enable you to recoup the cost of your trip.
