Passions of Paradise reserves the right to cancel the day tour due to poor weather conditions, mechanical problems or use another vessel, or travel to different reef sites.

We offer a two destination itinerary.We will visit two outer reef locations chosen from our brand new selection of 24 spectacular destinations.  At times; the weather may make one of these destinations unsafe or impractical to visit. On those days, we may only visit one location. In poor weather, it is up to the Skippers discretion as he travels to the reef to decide which locations will be visited. He will choose keeping in mind your safety, the safety of the boat and your comfort. There are no refunds when the itinerary is changed.

We will endeavour to sail as much as we can each day, however, the wind speed and wind direction determine for how long this occurs. The skipper will keep everyone informed on our sailing plans for the day.

Should the trip be cancelled due to poor weather or mechanical breakdown, we will refund 100% of the amount we charged.
