Weather Cancellations and Delays: A delay and / or cancellation due to weather is at the discretion of your skipper and will be communicated accordingly. Generally, a trip will cancel or be delayed due to exceptionally strong sea conditions where it is deemed to be unsafe for passengers and crew to travel on a given day. We recommend allowing a three-day window in your itinerary to provide flexibility for your guests, should weather affect activity plans.
If the weather prevents access to the sea (and the remainder of the experience can proceed) the boat and fishing component will be exchanged for a Heli Craypot Lift and extended cultural highlights, including Marae visit and carving interpretation in lieu.
Weather considerations will be communicated by phone at least 48 hours prior to your booking date. Should weather affect the experience and cancel all arrangements, 70% of the total booking cost will be refunded.
