DIVES, DIVE PACKAGES & ACCOMMODATION
Cancellation / refunds policy
Due to the logistics of running a successful dive centre, we require 24 hour notice should you need to cancel your dive with us. Dives cancelled on the day due to being cold, seasick or hungover will still be charged for as we may have been able to book other divers on the boat. Refunds/credits will only be given if we cancel the launch due to weather or reasons using our own discretion. Thanks for understanding.
No refunds on package specials.
Please note every diver needs a permit to dive on aliwal shoal (being a marine protected area). Permits are available from any post office. The original will be kept on the boat for the duration of your dive.
If bookings are further than a month in advance and cancellation is made the 50% deposit will be forfeited. Balance of payment is then due one month before arrival. Cancellations made more that 15 days before arrival date a refund of 50% of the balance payment will be due, cancellations less than 15 days have no refund.
When doing an eft into our account as payment for your accommodation/diving please remember to send us a copy via either e-mail or fax. If this is not received please note that your booking cannot be confirmed. Please do not rely on your bank to do this. All bank charges will be for your account.
TRIP BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
A 50% deposit payable to Aliwal Dive Centre upon booking. This deposit is payable per person and is non-refundable as well as non-transferable. The outstanding balance is to be settled 60 days prior to the start of the trip in order to secure your booking. Any additional expenses are to be settled prior to guests’ departure. No credits will be given for cancellations beyond our control.
NOTE: No refunds on accommodation. Dives cancelled with less than 24 hours notice are non-refundable. Dives cancelled by us will be refundable/rescheduled.
