Please note no refund will be offered if no sighting while in the water occurs.

If we cannot get a successful in-water interaction (within exclusive contact zone as defined by DBCA) with either a humpback whale or whale shark a refund of the difference between “Humpback Whale swimmer” and “Snorkeller” will be issued. For example: “Adult Humpback Swimmer” price is $480 but we cannot get a successful in-water interaction with either a humpback whale or whale shark we would refund $130 which would bring the price paid down to the price of an “Adult Snorkeller” $350. We do not offer any repeat vouchers, refunds, credits, or gift cards.
