Walks will normally operate in all but exceptional weather conditions. Conditions such as fog, mist, drizzle, showers, rain, sleet and windy conditions do not affect normal operation of our walks.
Kayaking: Rain will not effect kayaking activities, in fact some of the best kayaking conditions are during rain., however strong winds may cause cancellation due to unsafe conditions. Weather predictions saying a “possibility” of thunderstorms will not cause a cancellation of an activity – guides will monitor the weather conditions during the activity and evacuate passengers from the water if this looks likely to occur. We will notify you by phone the day prior or day or morning of a trip if we need to cancel. If we cancel we will transfer your booking to another date, if another date is not possible, we will refund your money in full. No refunds or transfers are given to those who choose not to kayak because of inclement weather if we have not cancelled the activity. If winds do look like they will affect the tour we will call you to discuss options first, as we are a mobile kayak business and have some excellent alternative locations that may be sheltered from the wind.
