  • The purchase to trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.

The removed Passenger will not receive any refund for the remaining portion of the charter. If the skipper of a yacht or any of our marina staff or agents, in his/her reasonable discretion, believes that a passenger is disruptive or that he/she is suffering from a contagious disease, they can also refuse to let such passenger proceed with the charter, disembark the Passenger from a boat or aircraft, or remove the Passenger from an accommodation or excursion/activity.
