We require that all guests take out travel insurance for their trips. In the event that a trip is cancelled or rescheduled due to unforeseen weather related circumstances, we cannot accept responsibility for any loss of trip costs, airfares, lost holiday time or any other financial consequences as a result of the booking. We make every effort to conduct all trips on time and to the proposed itinerary, however we are unable to take you fishing in the event that a tropical cyclone warning or a strong wind warning is issued by the Bureau of Meteorology for all or part of your trip, in the event of any other natural disaster that prevents us from running your trip, or if wind speeds exceed the safe operating limits specified for our operation by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
Financial consequences of any fishing time that is missed and any travel connections or accommodation bookings that need to be changed as a result of these unforeseen weather events, is to be claimed on travel insurance. Cancellations are exceptionally rare, but we believe travel insurance is a wise investment.
It is a condition of booking that you agree to take out some type of travel insurance to cover any unforeseen weather events. Before taking any travel insurance from any company, please read the full product disclosure statement and be satisfied that the policy provides you with appropriate cover for deep sea fishing in Australian domestic waters, as well as sufficient cancellation coverage for the trip and your travel expenses.
We are able to evacuate people from the remote areas we visit through the Royal Flying Doctor Service and government rescue operations.
It is our understanding that medical evacuations for Australian Citizens that are coordinated by the Royal Flying Doctor Service may be covered by the Australian Medicare system, but we would advise that your travel insurance policy include provision for evacuations if required.
Medical evacuations for non-Australian citizens are not covered by our Government. Please ensure that your travel insurance covers medical evacuation if you are not an Australian citizen.
Please note that all guests, Australian or non-Australian, would be liable for the cost of a medical evacuation requested through our transfer providers.
