Disclaimer & T&C’s

DISCLAIMER

I understand that there are inherent risks involved with powerboat trips,  including but not limited to sudden movements, changes of speed and direction, environmental hazards, bouncing and jerking motions.

As the lead persons booking, I hereby assume such risks for myself and my party.

 

These trips can cause sudden movements and stress to the muscular and skeletal system and put pressure on the spine in particular.  I understand that I have a duty to exercise reasonable care for my own safety and I agree to do so.

I and my party will follow the guidance of the Safety Brief provided by the vessel crew.

In the event I or any member of my party show signs of distress or call for aid, I would like assistance and will not hold Bay Island Voyages, their crew or passengers responsible for their actions in attempting the performance or rescue of first aid.

 

 

I CONFIRM THE FOLLOWING FOR MYSELF AND ALL MEMBERS OF MY PARTY:

I/they do not have a back injury or ailment.

I/they are not pregnant.

I/they do not suffer with any ailment that may be made worse from this activity.

I/they will not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the trip.

I confirm I/they are fully fit to ride the vessel.

I/they do not have any of the COVID-19 symptoms at the time of the trip and if within 14 days of my trip I/they develop any symptoms, I/they will notify Bay Island Voyages for their health & safety / track & trace purposes.

I/they agree to being supplied with the necessary safety equipment and ensuring it fits correctly.

I/they agree that during the vessel voyage, if I/they should feel any discomfort, I/they will notify the crew immediately.

Any underlying medical conditions, medications or requirements have been notified to Bay Island Voyages prior to undertaking the trip.

FAQ’s / Terms & Conditions

Welcome to the Bay Island Voyages Frequently Asked Questions.

If we haven’t addressed what you’re looking for, further questions can be answered via our contact us page or alternatively you can call us on 07393 470476.

Who can’t travel?

Due to the speed and manoeuvrability of the boats anyone with pre-existing conditions such as back pain, neck pain, previous injuries that could be aggravated by sudden movements or if you are pregnant will not be able to participate. Slower passage trips can be arranged with advanced notice.

We reserve the right to refuse to carry anyone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. We also ask that if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, for example epilepsy, you let us know before travelling so we can be aware of them.

Whilst we are an inclusive provider, safety of our passengers comes first. There are limitations for access onto the boats, therefore we ask that anyone with a physical disability contact us prior to booking, to ensure that we are able to safely get you aboard.

Is the experience suitable for young children?

Our trips are suitable for all ages; however, the only restriction we have is that people are at least 1.1 meters tall, able to reach the footrests and can hold onto the safety bar in front of them throughout the trip.

We can arrange slower trips if required as a group, and consider people under the 1.1-meter limit.

How many people can go on a boat?

We can take a maximum of 12 people per boat. We normally have two boats running so can accommodate up to 24 people per trip.

How many people do you need for a trip to go ahead?

We need a minimum of 6 people to run a trip. Each boat can take a maximum of 12 people. If you have a group smaller than 6 we can put you together with other groups to get a trip that can run.

What should I wear?

It tends to be a lot colder at sea than it is on the land. We suggest layers of clothing and if you have waterproof trousers and jackets we suggest you bring them, you can always leave them in your seat locker. We provide a water resistant jacket but suggest that you do bring another layer with you if you have them. We also provide a life jacket for every passenger.

Am I going to get wet?

It depends on the weather, but for most trips you will probably get at least a little splash. The only trip where you probably won’t get wet is a Bay Blast, as long as it is not raining.

What happens if the weather is bad?

The weather can require the need to cancel trips. Should this be the case then as much notice as possible will be given. Choice to arrange an alternative trip or a full refund will be given. The rain does not stop us, that’s why we have waterproof jackets for all. The skipper will make the final decision and the call will solely be made on the safety of passengers.

Is there a cancellation charge?

All deposits are non refundable.

Upon full payment if you cancel:-

Up to 72hrs prior to your trip an 80% refund will be given.

24hrs prior to your trip a 50% refund will be given.

Under 24hrs prior to your trip, then we reserve the right to withhold the full amount.

All cancellations should be made via phone, with an email for request of refund or alternative date.

Can I get a full refund for a cancelled trip?

Should Bay Island Voyages need to cancel the trip for reasons such as bad weather then a full refund or alternative date will be offered.

I want to go on a trip but there is not one on the website.

Should all of our available time slots be full, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call. We may be able to schedule further trips depending on availability.
