Travel Risk/Insurance:

It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure. You should also ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances.

All departures and itineraries are subject to weather. Tours may be changed or cancelled for any reason at the discretion of the Service Operator. If the Service Operator has to cancel the trip or activity (prior to departure) and we cannot offer a suitable alternative, then a refund will be given minus a 20% administration fee and any associated card fees. We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email.

Barbara Zweig, 05 Jul 24
We were so happy that our flight could still take place in the afternoon. It was worth the wait. The view was fantastic. It was a great experience to see everything from the air. I wouldn't have wanted to miss the flight.
Harriet Lobo, 05 Jul 24
Absolutely loved my experience on the Atlantic Clipper! I must say the rain continuing for the whole trip did limit certain activities and a degree of partying however the staff (Eileen, Tommy, Tom, Kian, Matt) kept the morale and energy high, would love to do this trip again but when it is sunny!!
Thomas Prinz , 18 May 24
