BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Please read the following carefully before sending your deposit.

By sending your deposit, you are agreeing to these Terms and Conditions.

 

 

Please read the following carefully before sending your deposit.  By sending your deposit, you are agreeing to these Terms and Conditions.

A deposit is required to be paid to South West Diving to confirm your booking.  This deposit is non refundable.

For Full Group Charters the balance of the charter price is payable to South West Diving four weeks prior to your booking.

Each person making a booking with South West Diving, on behalf of another passenger, or group of passengers confirms that he/she has the authority of that passenger and that each such passenger agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Each person making a booking or included in a booking affirms that they are of sufficient experience to undertake the diving they have booked and that they are dive-fit, qualified and equipped to do so.

The Charterer, whether an individual or a group booking the whole vessel, is responsible for the whole of the fee they/he/she has undertaken to pay and must pay the balance at least four weeks before the start of the charter period. If for any reason, the Charterer cancels the booking after that date, they/he/she remain responsible for the whole of the fee. If, due to unforeseen circumstances, you wish to cancel all or part of your booking after your balance has been paid, South West Diving cannot refund your charter fee.

In view of the above conditions, we strongly recommend that you consider a separate Holiday Cancellation Insurance policy, which are available from several independent companies and brokers.

If owing to circumstances beyond our control, South West Diving cannot provide the charter booked or a suitable alternative, we will refund all monies paid to us, in full, and the passenger(s) shall have no further claim against us.

South West Diving give notice that all arrangements made by us are on the condition that we shall not be liable for any death, injury or damage, loss, delay or irregularity that may be caused by persons or conditions out of our control. We accept no responsibility for any losses or additional expense due to delays in changes in air, road, rail, sea or other services, strikes, war, weather or other causes.

For reasons of safety, South West Diving reserve the right to vary the planned charter in any way we consider preferable due to adverse weather or any other conditions.  The skipper will endeavour to find suitable alternative divesites if practical.  

All decisions regarding the safety of any vessel in the employ of, or chartered to South West Diving, and the safety or health of those on board including during drop-off and recovery of divers, rest with the skipper.

In the event that the cost of fuel for the charter operations exceeds the amount allowed for within the standard charter fee, we reserve the right to charge an extra “fuel supplement” amounting to the shortfall. Details of this supplement are available on request from South West Diving, but in basic terms, equate to £5 per Nm.

Winter diving will consist of 2 local dives (unless otherwise agreed) weather conditions permitting.  Further dives can be arranged as a group (charges apply)

All South West Diving's vessels are fully insured to carry 12 passengers within its area of operation.  Our insurance does not cover passengers who are away from the vessel or whilst engaged in diving activities.  South West Diving do not accept responsibility for loss of, or damage to, passengers gear, property or valuables whilst onboard or in transit. Please ensure you have adequate holiday insurance cover for equipment.

The skipper of any vessel in the employ of South West Diving may refuse to carry any passenger or their equipment for any reason relating to the safety of the vessel and/or its passengers and crew.  The skipper also reserves the right to refuse to carry any passenger who contravenes 1) the diving regulations relating to protected wrecks and their environs or 2) the lawful instructions of the skipper.

No drugs (other than those prescribed by a doctor) or other unlawful substances are permitted on board the vessel at any time.

South West Diving reserve the right to alter these Terms and conditions at any time.  If you need any further clarification on these Terms and Conditions then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Weather check is Thursday 19:00 at the earliest for the weekend. Sometimes a decision may be postponed until Friday morning if the weather is marginal.
