COVID-19 Policy

Kayaking is a low risk outdoor activity with natural social separation. We are excited to be back doing what we love most, being on the water sharing our love of sea kayaking.

Our Hobart City and Hobart's Cliffs, Caves and Beaches tours recommence on the 26th September and our Tasman Peninsula day tour recommences on Saturday 7th November.   

Our multi-day expeditions in the Southwest Tasmanian wilderness recommence on 27th December 2020 and our Flinders Island kayaking adventures begin on the 21st February 2021.

We have the following refund policies and COVID Safe Measures in place:

COVID-19 cancellation and refund policy

We have revised our refund policy as outlined to give you peace of mind when booking:

  • If any tour is cancelled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions into Tasmania from your home state, we will offer a full refund, including refunding deposits paid for multi-day expeditions. 
  • Full payment for multi-day expeditions is not required until travel restrictions have been lifted and your expedition is confirmed. Once your expedition has been confirmed, full payment is due 60 days prior to the departure date.

Our COVID-Safe measures include 

  • Additional cleaning and disinfecting of our kayaks, buses and facilities is performed, focusing on high touch surfaces.
  • Hand sanitiser is provided on all tours, on buses and inside our premises for staff. 
  • Contact details for each group are collected as part of the booking process to enable contact tracing.
  • Staff have been directed not to come to the workplace if they are unwell.
